The best standing shots if you watch them look comfortable when they are shooting, that could be standing, kneeling or sitting. Thats the start you want to get done first...
A Video camera is a great tool for this. Set up the camera so it records you in profile. So if you are right handed record the right hand side. Record about 5 minutes of you shooting standers/kneelers/sitters.

Then in the privacy of your own home (is best unless you want the P ripped out of you ) study the footage. I actually copied this to my PC and looked at it frame by frame. You can then see what bad habits you have got and try to correct them. For me I found I would fire the shot and then move my head rather than see the target being hiot on Kneelers.

You could repeat it for upward and downward shots as well.
