Developing Proper Archery Form

As tech geeks, we love everything that involves technicality and this includes archery and hunting with compound bows. You might be using the best tuned bow that has a lot of cool accessories to make it even better, but if you don’t have a good form your accuracy won’t be good enough. You need to master many processes to have that perfect shooting form. However, once you understand everything, archery will most likely be like second nature. While having the best compound bow is important, form will help you maximize or use your bow properly.

The point where you put your feet while taking a shot can greatly affect where your arrow strikes. A person’s body has a natural center point so if you don’t position your feet properly, you might not achieve this natural point, It will cause the body will fight your current position impeding accuracy during a shot.

Three Basic Stances

There are three basic stances that you need to consider when taking a shot. The first one is the squared stance where your feet are in-line with each other. The closed stance is when one foot is a step forward from your body. The open stance is when your front foot is pointing towards the target. The stance that you should choose must be comfortable for you. You can start with your feet shoulders width apart and your body weight should be spread between the rear and midsection of the feet.

Most experts will tell you to choose an open stance because it will put the chest toward the target and allow you to have a bigger bowstring clearance in the bow arm and chest. Although it is the most commonly used, this stance may not be for all types of people. You need to ask someone to help you find your perfect stance while you are in front of an archery target. Close your eyes and move your feet and your body until you get the most comfortable position. Take note of the direction of your aim when you open your eyes.

You need to haul the bowstring back and you should not use your small bicep muscles for this activity. The larger and more stable muscles of your upper back and your shoulder can be used instead for more weight pulling and steadier aim. After you’ve done all this, put your bow down and point an arrow to aiming spot to find your perfect stance.

When it comes to gripping the bow you want to do so in such a way that hand torque is not promote In other words, you want your grip to be as torque-free as possible. To do this, you first need to find the best location for the grip to contact your hand. This can easily be accomplished with a simple test.

Gripping your bow should be done in a way where the hand torque is not upheld. Your grip should be free from torque. Find the best location for the grip when you hold the arrow, you can do this by holding your bow hand out like you’re gripping the bow. Take the thumb of your other hand and poke your bow hand with it in different parts. All parts of your hand will collapse except one part and that is what you are looking for to place the bows grip while you draw your bow.

The Perfect Diet Plan for My Fellow Tech Geeks

If you are a tech geek who spends a lot of time at your desk, like me, then the GM diet trend may be something you could be interested in. For people with sedentary lifestyles, such as desk jobs, it is important to keep up with a good diet to make up for the lack of activeness. The General Motors diet was actually created 30 years ago by General Motors to keep their employees healthy and happy while working for them. The diet helps most people lose an average of 10 to 17 pounds per week. While many people are very skeptical of these numbers, they are realistic when you follow the basis of this diet which is to eat foods that burn more calories than they have.

Many people worry that this diet is just a “quick fix,” and the good news is that it is a quick fix. However, the weight you lose will not come back after a week or so of bad eating after the diet like many other diets that only help you lose water weight only. People have continually found that they lose real weight that stays off. Find out what happens after the diet is finished.

The reason people lose so much weight that stays off with the GM diet is because the combination of foods you are eating actually put your body into a detoxification process. It can actually cleanse your entire body this week and last you a lifetime. Many people stop craving junk food after the GM diet because their bodies start to want the healthy food options that keep it clean and running well.

Many people who do the week long GM diet notice a huge improvement with their bowel movements. This is due to the increase in fiber from the foods they are eating and the amount of water you are drinking. Six to eight glasses of water today can regulate your digestion and keep weight off by allowing your body to not store excess water.

When on diets many people complain of a loss of energy. This is quite the opposite with the GM diet, as the foods you are eating and staying so hydrated will actually cause you to have more energy and stay more active even while you are eating healthier and less. The amount of weight you lose on this diet keeps people motivated versus the average of one pound a week most other diets will allow you to lose.

The GM diet has many alternative options that work great for people who are vegetarian or vegan or even people of other ethnicities, like Indian. Although it is recommended to only drink large quantities of water, you can also drink black coffee, tea and club soda.

Many people love this diet and have had success because it is flexible, logical and keeps you motivated and energized. You can find the day to day meal plans for the GM diet online and also find all the alternative options.

Staying Gun Safe as a Tech Geek

As a tech geek we know the importance of following guidelines and rules. When programming, if we just forget all of the rules none of our websites, programs or anything will function correctly. This applies to all areas of our lives. Personally, I enjoy collecting guns both for recreational use and selling.

All states have laws and regulations about gun safety. While many still do not require that you keep your guns in a gun safe, I believe it is one of the most important things you can do.

Gun safes can be made for many different reasons. They protect against theft, damage in any home fires or natural disaster incidents or to keep your gun out of reach of children and untrained people to avoid any accidents. Many people are killed each year due to a gun not being locked away in a gun safe and someone playing around with the gun. Do you have family or friends that may  ome in contact with your gun? If so, getting a gun safe is the responsible decision.

Types of Gun Safe

There are different types of gun safes. Some gun safes are only large enough to hold one gun, however, often the can be bolted onto a desk or similar area. This is a great option for tech geeks who want to keep a gun close to them in their office for emergencies. The gun will be stored safely and still in reach if it is ever needed.

From there gun safes get larger and larger. Before purchasing a gun safe it is important to analyze how many guns you have that need to be stored away and the sizes of the guns. Some safes are meant for many handguns while others are meant to store large shot guns and others have spots for both. Also, it is a good idea to plan where you want to put the safe. If not under your desk like mentioned before, do you have a closet large enough to hold the gun safe you are interested? Some gun safes can be installed into your wall and hidden with artwork.

As with everything you will purchase throughout life you must keep in mind of your budget before purchasing a safe. Some safes run very cheap at about $150 while other range into the thousands of dollars. It all depends on the size and features you are interested in. If you are mostly concerned about locking away a few guns from children a locking, metal cabinet can do the trick but if you are concerned about protecting expensive investments you will want a higher quality safe that will cost a bit more.

Do your research and always read the reviews before making your purchase whether you plan to buy online or in stores. If you are planning to buy a gun safe you are already making the responsible choice.

It seems as if we are busier than ever before nowadays. We have to balance work, a social life, health and any personal entrepreneurships or goals we have going on. And with a busy life comes a lot to carry around! It is so important to always be prepared and with that comes carrying around a lot of different items and having a bag that works well with our schedules.

Sure, you could use a briefcase, purse or a tote. But what type of bag is really going to be efficient?

1. Style: To some this may be the most important thing in a bag. All bags can hold stuff. But which ones look good doing it? Style is defined by the person carrying the bag. Are you attracted to cute prints like the ones featured on Lilly Pulitzer bags? Or do you prefer the sleek and professional look of a leather bag?

2. Quality: This is important to everyone, nobody wants to spend money on a bag that isn’t going to last more than a few weeks (or in my experience even less). Look for materials that are strong, like real leather. Cenzo Italian Leather messenger bag seem to be a lauded messenger bag. Find bags that have secure, adjustable straps. Always check the company’s warranties and return policies. The companies with the best policies are the ones who have the best luck with their products.

3. Size: Think about what you need your bag to hold and how many pockets you will need. Some people need a big open bag with few pockets to carry bulkier items, while others want zippers and pockets to organize their items in. Many bags have pockets specifically designed for laptops, iPads or even Kindles. This again is a personal preference but very important to consider before buying a bag.

If you love the bag, it has great reviews and a good warranty go for it. The perfect messenger bag can only be chosen by you. So think about what you want and do your research. After getting your messenger bag, prepare to be more efficient and prepared for your everyday routine.
