I have an opinion on the body and recoil…..it’s just my opinion and probably without merit!
I believe that conditioning, as in good muscle tone, helps reduce the risk of injury!
I fairy physically fit for my age, mostly from having an active lifestyle. A few years ago, I noticed that my rifle seemed to hurt a bit more from the bench and I would be more sore the next day after an extended bench session! I started a fairly disciplined push-up routine…..hoping that good muscle tone may help keep me in the game longer! I believe that it’s pretty well accepted that competitive athletes spend a lot of time working out and stretching to mitigate injuries!
Perhaps this helps explain why many of us older folks walk away from the heavy recoil stuff and seem to end up with injuries!
Just a thought! memtb
