I have not seen a thread about this subject, and I would be interested in discussing it.

An experienced member of this forum suggested that running / swimming pretty much had to be part of the training regimen. I would like to dig into the subject.

- Is fitness training necessary for shooters, and why?
- If so, what type of fitness activity is recommended, why?
- Are we only talking about cardio, or weight training as well?
- What kind of sports would be conducive to improve shooting performance in general?
- What type of training regimen do you follow?
- Could you post any links / books on the subject that you might have read on the subject?
.... etc ....

Yes fitness training is very important for shooting. Swimming and running are must for shooters. I do swimming in summers but running is not regular. I play cricket and Basketball almost everyday. These sports strengthens the hands and shoulder but at the same time they can cause wrist or finger injury. So when a championship is near I dont play but then I do running regularly. Besides them I do pushups and hand griping daily.
