Bow Drills

Below are a set of videos showing a range of exercises that you can do with your bow to aid in maintaining your shooting form, they are also designed to help with specific strength training for archery.

In the video Gabriel is using a form Master, you can do these without a form master but the formaster allows to complete the exercises with the weight on the elbow not the fingers. You can also carry out these exercises with an exercise band.

Instructions on how to make your own form master.

Benefits of using the form master.

Improved Posture: It should improve symmetry of motion by encouraging proper muscle use.
Improved Strength: The large muscle groups in the back can perform more efficiently than the muscles of the arm in drawing the bow. Allowing the exercise to be done over and over and so there is less fatigue
Improved Technique: By using the right muscle groups the archer will not collapse or creep at release
Focus: The archer can learn the feeling of proper muscle group contractions without needing to focus on other parts of the shot

Remember to warm up first
