This is the time of year when every archer visits their respective archery shop to have their bow tuned up for the season, if they have not already. Then, after picking up the freshly tuned piece of equipment, the struggle of regaining your mechanics from months of inactivity hits your muscles. Arrows fly everywhere as your try to put things on paper and work backward to your max distance. The same happened with me. With time always a factor, practice does not always happen every day as we would like. What I realized a major influencing factor determining the consistency of my arrow was my breathing.
