What does It mean to use your Gun for training and not for fun?
Well, you know how during training exercises you don't use real rounds and your weapon has a blank adapter on it? Meaning....you still practice......the weapon is being used to almost its full capacity, just nothing comes out. The energy stays inside the Gun.....nothing comes out.....you still do all the normal stuff, you just don't do it completely. Are we all tracking on this?
Now why in the heck would I be encouraging you to practice using your Gun in this fashion.....because I want you to start developing good sustainable habits and I need your basic posture to be one of them.
I know smbrs had access to shit Goads of DTD down range and chances are you still got it, or you access it on the Internet during down time now.........so if I can get you paying attn to your posture on a regular basis and get you to be more disciplined about sending your focus and energy somewhere other than the trash-can or a sock, then we are all making progress.
This weeks practical is all about the hips. I showed you how to clean your shoulders, now I'm tying that practice together with something I'm pretty sure you do regularly.
I can just image you reading this.....when it dawns on you what I'm recommending you do you are gonna think I've lost my shit. Not a problem, HOOAH?
Just know that I practiced this same discipline down range for an entire year. That's right, not once while I was down range did I ever use my gun to completion. Not once!
When I first got home I had the same Down Time habits I had down range, only I completed the process. It took me a while to realize that DTD was screwing up my progress and influencing my understanding of intimacy in an unsustainable way......whether I completed the process or not..........but we will get to that later.
Know this.....in time you are going to have to train yourself away from your Down Time Documents...but in the mean time you might as well further the process of Armoring Down by optimizing something that you look forward to and enjoy doing.
