Training Tip Tuesday #11 Conservation of Movement and Energy-To improve efficiency, competition times, tactical exchanges, or any other aspect of your shooting, your primary mission is to find ways to eliminate excessive movement. Excessive movement costs time and energy, both of which are a premium in terms of handgun skills. To determine if your movements can be more direct and concise, it is an excellent idea to video some of your range drills or competition stages and assess where you can be more precise. Furthermore, understand that tense muscles often equate to burning energy unnecessarily. If the movement you are attempting to perform can be done with loose and relaxed muscles, then that is the preferred method. Do a self-assessment during your next range session to see if you can put these two concepts into play to improve your overall performance.
