It’s no surprise to us that women’s bodies are different than men’s. When shooting men can more easily leverage their upper body strength to manage recoil. Women usually have to engage muscles throughout the body when shooting to ensure a stable platform. Having strong arms and a strong core is paramount to shooting success, as well as overall self-defense, endurance, and balance.
How do you increase upper body strength? The answer is simple — and this program is free to all AG & AG members!
As a member of AG & AG, you are welcome to participate in our Push-Up Challenge! Throughout this six-week program you will receive daily emails with weekly lesson plans that map out five quick and simple training sessions. The exercises can all be done anywhere and you don’t need special equipment. All you need is the desire to get stronger and the hunger to improve yourself.
If you are on social media, you can also join our Push-Up Challenge Facebook group to watch videos and get personalized coaching and encouragement.
Studies have shown that you can actually work yourself into phenomenal shape by focusing more on just your arms. Your muscles are less dense in your arms, which means your nervous system gets hit fast. Working your arms burns more calories and develops a higher cardiovascular threshold than many other type of training. It will also give you strength, speed, fitness, and toning like you would never believe! Larry St. Clair is an AG & AG National Conference Instructor and has been coaching AG & AG members through fitness challenges for years. He has helped people increase their push ups from ZERO to 66 in just 6 weeks! Dedicate six weeks to the Push-Up Challenge and you will see progress!
