Pulling strange faces and throwing shapes with a rope - unique training with Patrick Huston, GB Archer

Published on: 17th March, 2021

This is fascinating. Some fairly simple exercises we can all do at home - talked through by GB Olympic archer Patrick Huston.

He spends ten minutes pulling faces. And shows artistry and flexibility with his rope flow technique. You can see what Patrick's up to here. And in the podcast he gives me the science behind them. I'm definitely going to have a go!


Patrick also talks about last week's training camp at St George's Park, the FA's training centre. And preparations towards the selection event at the end of March.

And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
