Why does it Work?
Functional fitness involves the strengthening and increasing endurance of the specific muscles utilized for the desired skill. A stable shooting platform consisting of a solid stance and proper grip are essential for effective performance with both hand guns and long guns. Like the foundation of a building, if a shooters platform is weak, the other fundamentals collapse. Muscle Mount is the world's first functional fitness device designed to build a rock solid shooting platform.
In combat, muscles are typically fatigued as a result of two means, mobility and stress. Mobility involves any type of movement requiring muscle exertion. In combat, this may include running, climbing, crawling, fighting, etc. Along with combat exertion, the release of stress hormones in the body will increase fatigue after the initial spike designed for flight or fight. As the battle continues, the combatant will be required to perform with their firearm in an increasingly fatigued state. The Muscle Mount™ specifically exercises the exact same muscles required to maintain the solid shooting platform for effective shot placement in the combat environment.
