#elkshape is simply my workout and hunting journal, if you want to try some of the workouts feel free, if you want to try another good program, look up train to hunt with my buddy Kenton. He and I started it up back 2010, and since 2013 he's the man there now, running the show and changing the game. My workouts aren't training for hunting, I'm training to compete at CrossFit, luckily, the results seem to transfer to the field pretty damn well. Actually, I think CrossFit is often harder than backcountry bowhunting.

I have a invitational competition coming up in January that will have me busting hump to compete with the young guns. You must have something on the calendar to prepare for or you will lose motivation and slip up on discipline. Find something to work towards and never lose sight.
