I am looking for some strengthening tips to assist in strengthening my upper body for shooting my bow, injury prevention and improve my bow holding power! This will assist me greatly while Elk hunting and that bull is coming in slowly or stops behind that inevitable bush or tree!

Back in the day I was shooting I would use one of those exercisers designed to build the upper body. They have a handle on both ends with springs between. The one I have I can use all 4 springs or remove some. I used it like I was drawing a bow and it seemed to help.

The BowFit is something that does the job for me and I'd recommend the safari size.

Oh yeah I don't work for Cabelas - I bought mine before they carried it. :lol:

one drill that my brother in law has us do when we're over shooting at his place is to do 10 push ups & run around his shed then come back to our bows to take the shot at the 3d target. its to get your heart rate up to simulate buck fever. Gotta control your breathing & heart rate to be able to make the shot.
