    I think the biggest thing is just gripping the gun hard when dryfiring. It will naturally improve your strength as you go. If your forearms aren't wore out after 15-20 minutes of focused dryfire, you probably aren't gripping the gun hard enough.

    The video posted earlier is part of a 4 exercise routine to help tennis/shooters elbow. It works to improve strength and prevent injury. Below is the more detailed explanation.

    Besides that, I got the most out of core exercises so I was better at keeping a stable position in awkward positions.
    This advice is spot-on. You need to be "feeling it" in your wrists and forearms during & after dryfiring.

    The problem with the grip exercisers, is that they train both hands the same way. You don't want to train both hands the same way! Your weak-hand grip is the biggest part of what the normal person needs to improve, and it's not the same as what your gun hand is doing.

    The best exercise for hands/arms in shooting is sport-specific: gun in-hand, gripping hard, and doing it simultaneous with getting good (fast but accurate) index, and making the trigger work, but not more than what it takes to make the gun go off. This is better than anything you can do with grip exercisers. Your trigger finger needs to be experiencing the same level of resistance, in the same position, as it does when shooting, and making sure you're not "over pulling" the trigger in so doing.

    Iím no professional. But, ive seen training with live and dummy rounds that include very basic martial arts.

    also: sparring punches are non connecting even if a block is missed. But will connect with blocks. Making arms sore and stamina reducing.

    eg: two people, simply do sparring blocks and punches for a set time. When timer goes off they back off and turn 90į to target and Throw 3 COM shots. This is not about speed, safety is still adhered to. Rinse and repeat. The idea being that as your blocking random sparring punches, it raises your adrenaline and gets your mind completely away from distance and shooting. Then you have to switch mentally and in practice. After about 4 sets, the stamina and slight shaking really mimics reality, supposedly. The longer you go the worse the shooting and blocking tends to get.

    FWIW: I do not know if this truly works or if this is some silly exercise some induhviduals are doing. In my dojo and with other students in my dojo, we donít do such things ever.

    Shoot some competition so that there is a little stress in your shooting.

    No one is stronger or more dangerous than the man who can harness his emotions.
