When I shoot at about 100 rounds my back starts getting tired.I have been lifting weights to build my lower back and it dosen't seem to help.Do I need to go to a soft touch or gray coil?
Help!

I have a little gut my wife might think it's big but that ain't the problem.But I do 100 leg lifts and 75 situps three times a week so I'm not a blob.I do like food.but it's not the gut.

Ok I snuk into romie's private pictur collection and I guess he thought since he had the smallest belly between the 3 of his buddies then it counts as a little gut.

That has to be him in the middle.

I've gone to resting the gun on the dreaded toe for at least 2 or 3 shooters instead of holding it at the ready and that has helped the mid and low back tendency to tire. Also turning a bit toward the trap house so I'm not spending the entire time semi-turned at the waist has also helped. You gotta try to really relax more between shots but it takes some changes in your routine.....breakemall....Bob Dodd

What does caffine have to do with it? I can give up a lot of things but I have three strong cups of Starbucks every AM.I think I would rather keep the fatigue how can I find out?

romie, regular setups do not do it, get one of those exercise balls, and do setups on a ball, and use your stomach muscles to roll up on the ball. Another exercise I do that helps, is sit on the ball with the bands stretching from the backside and arms down to waist level and throw a punch towards the floor and hold it for 2 or 3 count. This will tighten up the opposite side back muscle, and this has really helped me. 10tenner

I bought one of the gunrests that are a sponge pad with a magnet. works great, don't get tired holding the gun up any more.

Romie check your stands when you mount your gun and are ready to shoot if you know a good shooter or a shooting couch have them take a look at your stance to see if you are leaning or if you are not in a netrual stands that your weight is not center or that you are leaning trying to hold the gun up if so this can be your problem and this could be why your lower back is hurting try it my help you find the problem

It is more my middle back and I do lean in to the shot a little I think.I think I am at the point where I could use a little help.I start out a ball of fire and then after 50 my scores sink like a brick.
