You know -- and an acceptable range but also there's a lot of mental involved and and cheating because it is such.
Sport of perfection that you have to control everything out on the body but your entire mine as well so it's a very important develop mental strengths.
So I know that -- teaming up with allies again.
Because the idea and kids -- -- recommend sticking it's your mental -- not to going start to go to schools thinking for you dad and you know -- is part of a repetition I shoot three to 400 barrels almost every single day.
I've shot over 450000.
Barrels in the past six years so.
It's a very repetitive sport for -- but also during the day you know just to make sure that I feel confident going into an event.
I prepared Al day every day the same way so I get up in the morning have a healthy breakfast just like we are taught -- kids gasoline go and have that mental.
Strength to go learn and then we -- take a test right so we can perform well in our -- but my test of the Olympics basically.
