FitShot™ combines physical activities with practical shooting skills. Rob Pincus demonstrates one of the most basic FitShot™ exercises, the air squat, in which we move the hip below the knees, heels on the ground, back straight, chest up, and focus to the front. First we just do the squat, then repeat it with a firearm in the High Compressed Ready position — an air squat followed by a shot. It’s important to understand your range of motion and not to injure yourself.

FitShot™ is a program designed to promote fitness in the shooting community. FitShot™ exercises are not meant to be “defensive shooting training.”
