If you really want to be serious I'd also look at general cardiovascular fitness as something to train as well. It can be very helpful to have a slow heart rate under pressure and a CV workout will help to lower the resting rate (mine sits around the 55-60 mark at the moment but I'm a fencer as well as an archer).
Even better, if you can shoot lots with archers who are better than you. Then watch, listen and learn.Shoot lots!!!

This also includes all other styles. Rarely, if ever, are you going to get beaten because they have better equipment than you. Watch different peoples style, and behaviour, and see if any of the things they will do will work for you. There is no perfect text book style that can be learned from books. We are all different. Eventually, you will find your own style. But watching better archers will give you ideas. Well IMHO that is.
Think you are right - [thinks] course I can beat the guy who's shot for 20 odd years even though I've only done it for 8 months :cheerful:For me its a very psychological thing (particularly with compound) that you want to aspire to be able to compete with the best in the club. Perhaps its just my competitive nature coming through and wanting to win.
That's fine in principle, but as there is only one other compound shooter at our club I'm a bit stuck.Or the other thing that works for me find the 3 or 4 guys who you respect as shooters in your club in your bow type. Then pick them off one by one.... [not in a day of the jackal way] when you have beat the one closest to you then target the next and so on....
