Shooting Sports USA has started a three part series for 3-Position. The first part (by Marcus Raab) discusses the Standing position. 

Maximizing the body’s ability to remain stable in the shooting position throughout an entire course-of-fire requires not only physical training, but also an understanding of what makes a good position and how to assume that correct position repeatedly. While there is no cookie-cutter position that fits every shooter, there are some biomechanical principles to which the shooter and coach should adhere. There are also some common sense ideas that can help the shooter attain their goals. This article will help the coach and shooters understand today’s standing position technique.  

Topics covered include:

Warm-up Holding Exercises

Mounting Sequence

Loading Sequence

Basic Standing Position
