Relaxed face


Recommended Posts

 

Videoed myself previous week shooting simple drills and found tension crippling into face - crippling into mind. Usually I'm not into making funny faces yet it was beyond I'd like to see.

 

Spent last training session just on making face relaxed during all shooting. Easier hits, slightly better time, more observations.

 

Bonus, I'll look even prettier on match photos!

So when I used to be really into golf, the same thing would happen to me. I would tense up my jaw, which would tense up my neck and shoulders and cause my shots to be inconsistent.

 

Someone told me to put a potato chip in my mouth between my teeth and hit w few shots at the range, focusing on not biting the chip. It helped and shifted my focus to relax my face. I changed my preshot routine to relax my entire body staying from my head down to my toes before each shot.

 

I tool this same feeling to my shooting and relax everything prior to the buzzer. When I get rushed to the line and don't relax it definitely shows up in my scores.

I was a decent golfer at one time. One of the best rounds I ever shot was when I was just starting to get, as I later found out, a case of the flu. I was lethargic and felt weak. I learned from that and relaxed much more while playing. I guess that’s why the beta blocker scandal was a big deal.

Let's argue about something pointless so all these post will be on one thread instead of clogging up the new post feed with a crap ton of old threads.  You can pick the topic LOL

 

 

PS, what you trying to sell?

Me and probably 45 other people.  A bunch of us use the "new post"  button and it is pretty easy to figure out.  Sherlock Holms I am not LOL.  But I do see you have been a member here for a long time, are you getting out of USPSA, or just did a shiny new blaster catch your eye?
