archery class

Hubby and I took an archery class today. Our 1 hour lesson turned into almost 2. We learned a lot and now it's gonna be practice, practice, practice. Had to get a new release ordered too. Turns out mine was to big
Now I've got two setting around that don't fit me.

don't over shoot
blew out my shoulder 2 years ago & I am still trying to get my strength back. it is more important to shoot less & be accurate I love shooting my bow more then shooting any of my guns & it is hard to limit myself but I almost had to sit out a season so now I limit myself to 1-2 dozen arrows & can shoot everyday good luck

Do not just fling arrows it is the worse archery habit you can develop.Instead shoot 20 arrows the right way totally immersed in aiming and with good form,practice does not make perfect,PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.Shooting a 100 arrows your mind is accepting bad shots,train your mind to only want to shoot good archery shots.One right arrow at a time.

Its supposed to be 100 with perfect form or they don't count. I'm breaking it up and doing groups of 25 so I don't become tired.

I think the instructor is simply getting the major muscle group built up in-order to proceed with form then accuracy. It takes good muscle tone to hold proper form, I see where the instructor is going.

He said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit so I have to practice my form for 21 days.

Sorry i didnt see the instructor part.He is absolutly correct he is establishing your muscles and building form without worrying about aiming.You cant learn anything on a bow while shooting at a target.I commend you for learning from an instructor your gonna be free of most bad habits archers develop.Good luck.I also suggest some learning material from Len Cardinal in my opinion the best archery instuctor there is.
