Bow-Arm Resistance Trainer
The Bow-Arm Resistance Trainer provides resistance training for your bow arm. Resistance smoothly increases as the band stretches, helping build muscles specific to the shoulder, along with the supporting musculature of the shoulder blade and the core musculature of the trunk.
Suggested Workout Routine
The Bow-Arm Resistance Trainer workout routine uses a combination of isometric and isotonic training to help you build those muscles specific to the shoulder (long head of the biceps and anterior deltoid), along with the supporting musculature of the shoulder blade (scapula), and the core musculature of the trunk (par spinal musculature and abdominals).
On your bow arm, place the adjustable loop of the Bow-Arm Resistance Trainer around your wrist (figure 1). Put your foot (same side of the body as the wrist) through the larger looped end and step on it to hold it in place on the floor/ground (figure 2).
Plane of Motion Exercise
Holding the Bow Trainer™ in the hand of your "bow arm", raise your arm into the same position as when shooting your bow. This position is known as the SET position.
Now, do several repetitions of the PLANE OF MOTION movement, raising the arm from below the SET position to 10" to 12" above the SET position.
Isometric "Holds" Exercise
Holding the Bow Trainer™ in the hand of your "bow arm", raise your arm into the same position as when shooting your bow.
HOLD this exact shooting position steady for 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat 3 to 5 repetitions.
