FitShot™ is a program designed to promote fitness in the shooting community. FitShot™ exercises are not meant to be “defensive shooting training.” The sit-up technique is a fundamental range-of-motion and core-strength exercise. Doing a sit-up while holding a handgun in the High Compressed Ready position is difficult because our arms must remain tight to the body, and we have to keep the muzzle kept pointed below the berm. The sit-up is completed, followed by a shot, then we go back to prone and repeat.
