I decided to get the bow out this evening and do some practicing. My wife, our girls and I went over to my in-laws so I could have room to set up a target. I have to admit that it has been awhile since I shot my bow - too long actually. I'm ashamed of myself. I have never had any problems drawing this bow, but this evening I was reminded that if you don't use those particular muscles consistently they will become weak. The daily pushups will begin tonight, and more frequent practice with the bow begins immediately! Turning 30 is really kicking my tail!
