Today I got up at 4:15 to go to Balboa Park in San Diego for Fox 5 News here that was doing a bit on the San Diego Archery Group at www.sandiegoarchers.com I was invited to attend so I decided to head up there. We started around 5:40 with the first showing and did clips on and off till about 8:00. We basically just shot for the cameras and had a good time. Here is one of the clips they put up on the internet today. http://www.fox5sandiego.com/pages/video/?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=3484995
I have a few new videos to upload to youtube, but I am going to do the progression through the technique again so everyone can see how dramatic the past few months have changed as far as the beauty and control of each and every shot. I will also do each step of the technique and see how that goes.
So shooting wise I have been working on using my back to come from the set position to the set-up position. For those of you who don't know what Set and Set-Up is, Set is when you have the bow down at your sides and the set-up is when the bow is raised up just before the drawing occurs. I have been having issues on and off with problems in my shoulder right near or in the joint. I have or have-had, deltoid bursitis, deltoid tendonitis, biceps tendonitis, teres tendonitis and inferspinatus tendonitis. The pain has been more on then off lately. I haven't been making progress in sportsmed in the pain department so I figured I would look at my form. Basically i was using my right arm to lift the bow instead of my left arm in the bow grip, and then using my right shoulder to initially pull the bow back, as opposed to my hand and then shoulder. So it is going pretty well for only two days with this form. I have a video a day old that I will get up in my newest youtube video so you will see.
