Goal Review for DTG 06/12/2013
Dry fire session A (again) – failed.
Overhead press 47% of my bodyweight. Squat 58%. – Success on both. Definitely getting near my max on OHP. Ordering more weights this afternoon for squats.
A note on failing the dry fire session – I had an event that I needed to be at in the evening, and so I only had time to either lift or dry fire. I chose, intentionally to lift rather than dry fire. Interestingly, if my choice is between “exercise” and “dry fire” I’ll chose exercise every time.
- Dry Fire Session A/B together
- Vision Training
- Write modified training plan
Today, I put modifying Mike’s training on the goals list, because I need to make sure it gets done. I want to take the skills trained in his program (draws, transitions, reloads, shooting low percentage targets) and simplify the drills so that they can be done from a single lane indoor range, because that’s what I have to train at. I’m also going to add some drills in that aren’t in the book, because to train I’ll be using my favorite practice target, the Q-PTC. A couple of notes on the Q-PTC target and why I like it, especially for IDPA training. Obviously, the 8 inch circle at the center is the same size as an IDPA down zero; additionally I like the fact that the head box is a 3×5 box instead of the enormous IDPA head box. Also, if you’re smart about how you use the dots, you can even do reasonable transition practice. A 2 inch dot at 3 yards presents the same target area as an 8 inch circle at 12 yards.
