Training Tip Tuesday #10 Relaxed Versus Tensed Movements- I was a range officer at a shooting completion recently. The stage I was at included a mandatory reload. One thing I noticed with a lot of shooters that struggled during the reload, was that their movements were extremely tense, they were flexed, jerky, and not smooth in their movements. As a result, several seconds of valuable time was wasted. At a class a while back, I took the time to remind the students that SMOOTH IS FAST. Many of us who train hear those words all the time but still resort back to bad habits of tense, rushed movements, especially when time is a concern. Smooth, relaxed movements build solid, repeatable, usable skills. Train hard and be safe friends.
