Training Cardio with Pistolcraft

This video shows working some AM cardio with a SIRT Pistol.  You don't necessarily need a gym to do some of these movements.  It is important to remember that a fitness regimen needs to be complete, this video is focused on cardio.  An example of a pure focused power and strenth training is shown here.

See the other tactical fitness videos such as the integrated pistocraft-cardio video the integrated pistocraft-cardio training post by the American Heros Champion SWAT Team.  If you are a CrossFit fanatic, check out the pistolcraft skills integrated in a CrossFit workout.   Stay tuned and take a look at the  tactical fitness training modules for other training modules that integrate pistolcraft with strength, cardio and physical training.

Poul Ups!!

Poul Ups are one of the first pure strength movements that can be properly combined with fine motor skill movements and body control with pistolcraft.  Poul Christensen of Denmark came up with this concept and it is nothing short of brilliant.  The movement is a derivative of horizontal pull-ups but with one hand and torqueing the body to an upward stable position while breaking a shot.  Poul is former Danish Military and distributing the SIRT and providing training with his business partner Lars Hagemann in Europe.

Although this movement requires a great deal of strength, the fine motor movements require exceptional trigger control.  The sight will not stay very steady as the body gets tired.  Therefore the shooter has to execute solid trigger mechanics to break the shot as sight picture becomes acceptable.  Generally sight picture is only acceptable for a short window so we have to break the shot on demand and not disturb the muzzle (or sufer a miss!).

Training in Georgia with Dave Sevigny of Sevigny Performance

Here are three videos training with Dave Sevigny.  Sevigny shows how to drive an open gun (a gun with red dot scopes, muzzle compensator, etc.) while maintaining acceptable accuracy.  The latter two video illustrate driving a gun to get good hits while under time pressure.  The swinger is activated by the falling steel.  It takes some time for the swinging target to be visable, so there is a brief window of opportunity to shoot the two static targets (with 2 shots each).  If you expand the videos to 720p full screen you can see the bullet impacts coming through the targets!

Training Points:

  • Be delibrate on the steel target.  Don't pull the gun off early, have solid follow through.
  • Snap the eyes to the next targets.
    • When targets start moving it is easy to not see what you need to in order to make quality shots
  • Fundamentals!
    • Stance, grip, sights, trigger control... all critical to making the shots under time pressure. 

Really not a lot different shooting moving targets from static, but the fundamentals have to be dialed in.  Shooting activating targets are great to ensure that we can execute the fundamentals under increased pressure.

Mike Hughes Competes in Texas Double Tap

These are two short fun stages at the Texas Double Tap in 2010. Stage 6 had some ragin splits in the end and Stage 5 was, well kind of a different ending.
As a bonus, the third video is the most inspirational training video before headed to Texas, best video on this site.

Train Hard. Train Smart.
