Range Fitness is a system to deliberately and consistently train accurate marksmanship under stress. No skill is more important to a military or tactical athlete.
The Mid-Range Carbine cycle focuses on accurate marksmanship under stress with a carbine in the 80-100 yard distance.
Range Fitness Training Sessions mark a significant paradigm shift in range time and marksmanship instruction and improvement. Stop simply shooting, and start “training,” at the range.
What Range Fitness Is and Does:
- Makes efficient use of range resources (ammo) and time. Training sessions last 90-120 minutes and use no more than 120 rounds per shooter.
- Puts the focus on hitting the target, not simply putting a lot of rounds downrange.
- Planned, programmed and periodized training sessions reinforce marksmanship fundamentals and stress marksmanship.
- Accurately pushes, measures and tracks marksmanship progress
- Provides a real time laboratory to try and test equipment and shooting techniques
What Range Fitness is Not:
- PT at the Range. Physical activity is used to raise heart rates and increase stress, but the focus is solidly on marksmanship improvement, not exercise.
- A “Stress Shoot”. Range Fitness drills are short, simple and repeatable. The goal is not to mimic all of the variables in a realistic tactical situation – the goal is to improve marksmanship under stress. In an analogy to football practice, Range Fitness is a tackling drill, where as the traditional stress shoot is the end of practice scrimmage.
This cycle inlcudes 18 training sessions, designed to be completed in order. Ideally you’ll train at the range 2-3x/week.
