Also, with a low grip the pressure point the clavicle, its insertion is at the lower back side of is further away from the arrow rest.
Like describing diferent positions with special names we also have special names for describing certain move- ments in anatomy; they are: Main movements: It also does the ante ver- of the elbow ulna. It stretches the elbow joint. On its way up there it presses the shoulder blade against the rib cage. It gives a good impression how muscles are located and inter- laced in the body.

In bringing the elbow closer to the trunk irstly the lever situation of the pulling muscles is improved and sec- ondly the strong biceps muscle assists to overcome the peak.
Moreover, the hand holding the release will be moved downwards, and whilst the bow hand is still keep- ing its position, this could have a disastrous efect: So, not to run any risk, gers and metacarpus, and insert at their most distal we should either teach such archers to do special muscle end.

With a high grip the pressure course, there are several others more, smaller mus- point is closer to the arrow rest see x-ray pictures below. Most top archers prefer this way of using a mechanical release. What really happens is there a subconscious movement of the trigger inger or not? Another way to use a mechanical release is to keep up Low grip back tension and use the trigger inger, no mater if wrist-strap release or hand-held release is used, like a rile shooter, shall mean consciously bend this trigger inger on purpose when everything is done right and the archer feels ready to let go.
High grip Diferences between recurve and compound archers with their release hand: Super slow motion pictures have shown that the ingers are almost immediately slightly bent again when the string has moved forward just a few centimetres. With a hand-held release, for example a thumb release, most probably the ingers holding the f Some coaches recommend a square classic stance, mechanical release will open slightly or, also thinka- others an open one.

Jul 09, Paulina added it. Okay, so no one is going to pick up this book when they sit in a cozy arm chair with a cup of coffee. This is not that sort of book, but if you're an archer it's just necessary. It explains in detail the archery form; the muscles, the movements, and how to minimize the stress on these parts. This book goes over every muscle and bone used in archery and goes on to explain the biomechanics of the sport.
The book is organized perfectly, a page of text is always paired with picture.
A more visual le Okay, so no one is going to pick up this book when they sit in a cozy arm chair with a cup of coffee. A more visual learner like me really appreciated the diagrams. Like I said, not for every one, but if you are even remotely interested in getting into the sport this book is a must-have!! May 13, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is fantastic.
The drawings are excellent, and the writing is clear and in easy-to-digest sections. I will be using this as a reference constantly to improve my skill. Recommended for all archers!
