Archery Exercises - How to Develop Your Archery Fitness Muscles

in Archery

Archery has been around for centuries. In fact, being a good archer was at one time considered very important. Especially, in England... where it was mandatory that all boys from the age of 14 forward were required to practice shooting the Longbow. Being a good archer demands not only a good eye but, also powerful shoulders, back and forearm muscles. In this article you will discover how to develop your archery fitness muscles. And believe me these archery exercises are easy to perform.

What Is the Best Way to Develop Powerful Archery Fitness Muscles?

Well, you can use free weights, dumbbells, or an archery exerciser. What is an archery exerciser? This particular piece of archery exercise equipment is specifically designed to target the muscles that an archer needs in order to pull and hold his bow so that his arrow will hit the bull's-eye. This demands a strong wrist as well as a strong back. I have found one of the best ways to stay in shape for archery is by using isometric exercise equipment. An isometric exerciser offer you the benefits of both isotonics and iso-tension training.

Isometrics and Archery Exercises

The benefits of using isometrics in your archery fitness program is that they require very little time and are one of the few exercise protocols that have been validated by research. Bruce Lee used an isometric exerciser called the Tensolator to strengthen his punching power. The muscles used in punching are almost the same as in pulling back your drawstring. It's just and reverse. Effective archery exercises should not require you to spend additional time at a gym. In my opinion, the best archery workout program would be something that you can perform in your own home. Let's face it, with all the demands of your job, family and your devotion to archery... you need an archery exercise and fitness program that can be formed quickly and yield maximum results.
