Shooting originated as a means of survival, and it was practiced in order to hunt game for food. As the industrial revolution made hunting for food less necessary for many people, shooting evolved into a sport. Training for shooting sports focuses heavily on perfecting technique, where the same action can be repeated accurately over long periods of time. Elite athletes may spend 2-3 hours on the range most days in the week, and often have multiple training sessions per day both on and off the range. It is important that time spent in the gym and on the range count, so it is essential that your body is well prepared for each session by eating a well planned diet. Remember, the food consumed fuels both muscle and brain for concentration and focus on the range.
