Holding Steady

Category : FC Archery News

 

While playing archery, how to hold steady a bow is a popular question. I summing up the answer like this … maximum relaxation is the key to keeping the bow constant. If you bend a muscle, it shakes; it would be stable if you would relax your muscles. You cannot relax completely, but by using the skeletal system, you can relax most of your muscles because the bones should be stable as well as the muscles.

 

You should use the muscles that are larger and strongest, the ones closest to the spinal cord, to hold up and back the body. The farthest from the backbone, the less steady it is. Relax your arm and let your bow shoulder hang from the bones of your shoulder. The sight pin and forearm of the release hand must be relaxed, and the elbow should be pretending to do everything. This is used to hold back and up with a large muscle between the shoulder blades. Concentrate on rest factors and your steady arch, once you achieve the anchor position.

Finally, you’ll never be steady if you shoot a bow with tension. So try and feel as relaxed as you can. Pull back and settle into your shot, let the arrow fly with relaxation.

HOOK (FINGER POSITION ON THE BOWSTRING)

Category : FC Archery News

 

When you place your fingers on the bowstring, do you actually look where you’re placing them? Or do you simply grasp the bowstring and start drawing? Rushing to place your fingers on the string is one of the most common archery mistakes. Taking a second look at your finger placement can pay big dividends for your shot.

Hooking the bowstring with too much finger tension – or in the wrong place on the fingers – can cause many issues. The problems range from missing the target entirely to developing painful finger blisters.

Therefore, make sure you place your fingers on the string for each shot exactly as you were taught, and be sure your hand position relative to the bowstring is consistent. Hooking properly and consistently creates tighter groups!

Let the Stress Melt Away when You Shoot

Category : FC Archery News

 

Hey FC Archers,

Whether you’re a new archer or a seasoned pro, you can’t afford to forget one aspect of archery: mental focus.

One of the best things about archery is its meditative nature. You must concentrate while shooting a bow to succeed on the target. When you lose mental focus, it makes a huge difference in your body awareness, which affects how you shoot an arrow. Everything you do at the shooting line affects what happens on the target. So, it’s vital for archers to be mentally focused – and that helps you in other areas of life, too!

The solution: All other stresses seem to melt away as you concentrate on your technique for drawing the bow and executing a shot. That only happens if you breathe and concentrate on your shooting. At the moment before you raise your bow, take a deep breath from your belly and think about what you want to achieve with that shot. Keep your breathing even as you shoot the arrow, and stay focused on your movements, not the score. By keeping your mind calm and focused on your technique, you’re much more likely to hit the high scores you want!

See you Friday – Remember to keep your mental focus!
