Legs, legs, legs! I was running stairs last week for my series with a loaded backpack for leg strength and cardio training. If your legs are weak little twigs they will not get you around the 3gun stages very powerfully. And they certainly won’t get you up the mountain for the precision rifle series matches. Here is another exercise to mix in to your routine or in the middle of your run. I would put this in the family of burpies. Yes, these photos were taken in Hawaii….. 🙂

Lunge jump 30calgal 3gun biceps series1 – From standing lunge forward with your right leg first. Make sure your thigh is parallel to the ground. Get a good lunge going!

Lunge jump2 – Then jump up in the air as high as you can bring your knees to your chest. Land on your two feet. Then go in to another lunge with left leg forward. A set of 10 if you can.
