PRE-SHOT PLANNING
AUTHOR: LUTHER CUTTS, HEAD INSTRUCTOR (NSCA LEVEL 3), COMPETITOR 

As shooters progress and improve, most find that the actions they take before the call for the target have a significant impact on their success in breaking the target. I have heard it said that up to 75% of targets are lost before the shooter calls for the target. I suspect there are other techniques that can help with shooter consistency, but I teach and advocate themethods advanced by the NSCA Instructor Program, namely, “Pre-shot planning” and “Pre-shot routine”. There can be some confusion regarding these two important practices, so I will attempt to bring some clarity to each of these constructs – Pre-shot planning in this monthly installment, and Pre-shot routine in the next piece.
