Default Blood pressure !

So this morning I've been trying out my positionals. Have noticed that in supported standing and kneeling I'm pretty solid but am getting POA moving right to left in time with my heartbeat , is this normal or do I need to call an ambulance?

Cheers.

It's normal for our age!

I stopped drinking the night before a shoot, as my pulse is more pronounced the morning after, when looking through the scope. I dont drink that much either......honest! And my blood pressure is ok.
I also make sure I eat some carbs and protein in the morning before I shoot as this helps to slowly release some energy as well.

Carbs and protein?

Sounds like a bacon butter, is that the secret?!

No its not caused by your pulse. Sideways sway is caused by many other things but pulse rate is not one of them.

Usually pasta and meat or fish for me, but it has recently been proven that bacon and eggs last longer and is actually better than cereal breakfasts that are all processed grain, with which you start to feel hungrier sooner.

I usually see a jump up or diagonally with my pulse. Sometimes changing hold position with the front hand helps.

Try non-caffeinated drinks on a shoot morning. Switching to decaf coffee bought me 2-3 points per shoot, but on non-shoot days I normally drink a *lot* of coffee!

Also optimise your position so you're using the absolute minimum muscle power to maintain a steady aim = "natural point of aim". A trick is to get on target then close your eyes and consciously relax for a few seconds, then open your eyes again and see where you're aiming.

I find supported standers/kneelers too unstable laterally, and 4 times out of 5 will shoot better unsupported as I've got more control of the position.

Agree with the above apart from decaff which I dont touch due to info received from a coffee packaging employee, who told me that the chemicals they use to decaff are scary unless you buy the very very expensive stuff, which is done more naturally. I cant stand instant coffee anyway, but do drink a bit of tea.

Certainly food makes a difference. I hit all of my positionals on Sunday so I am getting better. I didnt eat properly that morning and was shaking slightly, so I must have just wobbled in the right places.

Depends where the butt is placed and if you use a hook.
