Its odd I've found this forum is generally more intelligent due to more thought and less pattern then the military forums. So going to afghanistan. Apparently not going as a machine gunner. Going with an M4. So stability is king. Glide and shoot is all I'm living for for the next 11 months. So was looking for advice for shooting (when I get back IPSC is my blood, so if you got a carryover for pistols I wouldn't object) Obviously working on getting strong in general but what would help you hold a small weight in your hands (11 lbs with everything on it) up and it will make little circles but what will help make those as small as possible. Would controlled exercises like levering actually help because they train your arm to hold something steady? I'm also thinking an OHP would logically help just to make it use less musculature to hold it up, therefore giving more refined control potential (if this is wrong tell me) If you got an exercise that would logically improve my ability to groucho walk with 80-100 lbs on me and keep it smooth I would appreciate that as well.
