Korean weight training method
I'm just wondering, are the Koreans so good at archery because they have a different (is it, really?) training regime?
Here's their full weight training program:
Do other nationalities have different routines?

Looked like normal weight lifting to me.

Looks very basic.
They probably have a top secret archery training routine they don't share with the rest of the world.

Looks like a good workout routine to me, but nothing archery specific and nothing you wouldn't see being done in any high school gym.

I don't now if this is true or not, but I was always under the impression back in my competitive JOAD days (is it still called JOAD?) that the Korean archers were selected by certain anatomical traits, and that they could pick up and shoot each others bows with minor changes if need be.
What they do have though is one of the strictest training programs out there, have perfected it over the years, and dedicate their lives to mastering their sport/art.
