FitShot™ is a program designed to promote fitness in the shooting community. FitShot™ exercises are not meant to be “defensive shooting training.” In this video, FitShot presents how exercising with a push-up technique benefits defensive shooting training. The push-up can be done slowly or quickly, and with the feet or knees on the ground. After the push-up is completed, a shot is taken, then the process repeated. If doing this as part of a class, make sure all students execute the push-up from the same spot on the line so that no one ends up downrange during the shooting portion.
Student alert! If your defensive firearms instructor is not giving you an integrated system of firearm manipulation techniques but rather a set of unconnected techniques that don't integrate well together, don't reinforce each other, and don't contribute to your efficiency by being consistent with one another, you need to challenge those techniques.Watch Now >>
