  • Improves your hand-eye coordination.
  • Improves your upper strength.

Though many people think of running or jumping rope as the main activities that benefit heart health, not very many would envision archery as a cardiovascular exercise. Well, think again! Shooting a bow requires physical exertion that will undoubtedly elevate your heart rate.

Muscle strengthing 

Your shoulder, back, chest, arm, and all the core muscles get a workout when pulling back a bowstring—just try it for a day and you’ll definitely feel which muscles are working before long!

Stress relief

Archery can offer you this outlet as it usually takes place outdoors and in a tranquil space that can help you escape from your worries and get you out of your head.

Increased depth of focus

Part of being able to relay messages to your brain while aiming the arrow is to allow yourself to focus on one, singular task. Training your focus is like training any other muscle, and it gets better with practice.
