good news is there are exercises that can correct posture and enhance your hunting experience and we are going to show you how to add it to your workout!!
How can pulling exercises fix your posture? Think of it like this, if you slouch in your stand and your back starts to ache your first instinct is to sit up and PULL your shoulders blades together to alleviate the discomfort. And the pulling motion doesn’t start there because depending on what and how you are hunting, you have the potential to pull things the entire hunt. You have to pull yourself into your tree stand, pull up your gear and if Good Lord willing a dandy buck walks by, you will use all the pulling muscles you have when you draw back your bow. Do you see where I'm going with this?
For so long, especially in my athletic career, emphasis was based on bench press and squat. We call them “Mirror Muscles” because these are the exercises you can see in the mirror and people dig it. They like seeing muscles in action but they tend to neglect the pulling muscles in the upper and lower back. What they should have told me was to do chin-ups and rows which is why now I'm placing emphasis on pulling exercises which not only enhances my fitness, it has enhanced my outdoor experiences because I perform better in the field. If you are working out to make your hunts better start focusing on the pull, because I promise you will never push a deer out of the woods.
