I've got a weak shoulder but the way he showed me how to shoot actually pulls more across my back and the sore/weak spot bothers me less than what I was doing. He turned my bow down so it would be easier to practice as much as I need to. Also the release that I ordered should make it easier for me to pull back. Today was day 5. I've got 16 days left till I can add something else.

Your instructor will know what im telling you.U work on one part of your form at a time i.e. grip then work it out on your bale.Then maybe your bow arm etc just take it to instructor and work on your blank bale.

Your instructor is working your shooting muscle groups to strengthen them. You might find it even better to shoot in groups of ten shots. Striving for perfection is not an easy thing when your trying to do it 25 times in a row right off the bat. I shoot field and target competitions, I practice in ten arrow groups it keeps my focus high and I don't tire and get sloppy that way. My coach checks every detail when we are working on things.
