Overcome Archery Target Panic & Master Performance
Tap Into Your Inner Calm While Shooting
Archers have found there is a way of simultaneously improving all areas of performance, while overcoming recurring barriers such as target panic.
With most archers I have worked with over the past two decades, the solution was always at the very control center of your physical performance, your subconscious.
So if you experience any of these..
- target panic
- anxiety of holding in the middle, or
- shooting poorly under pressure ..
Mental training is the key - even if just overall improvement is your goal, rather than specific areas.
Better still - you customize it to suit your own personal, exact situation and needs.
As much as people try - issues such as target panic, which is an involuntary action (much like "the yips" in golf) and often called a form of self-sabotage - lie outside of your conscious control, and cannot be overcome with sheer practice and determination.
These involuntary actions may include locking up below the middle of the bullseye, not being able to bring the sight to the middle, or being unable to do so without shooting prematurely.
This is a type of inner anxiety which can often sabotage performance through involuntary muscle contraction - which inhibits their level of control when getting the sight to the bullseye, before releasing.
Mental training is extremely effective as it allows you to work directly at your the 'control panel' of your archery - as archers ultimately find that additional practice, motivation and determination have no effect upon this particular issue with performance.
Target panic affects most archers at some level, and operates much like a computer program, running in the background as you are shooting - and creating these unintended and involuntary reactions which hinder performance.
