(S&D) Safety & Defense - "Roll Your Own" Exercises

(About the author)

Safety Toolbox (Advanced)

(This is today's bit of advice from the book Safety Toolbox.)

The following ideas are provided to create your own drills. Below is a list of exercises where you designate the primary purpose of your own choosing. Here are a few suggestions.

Cue ball workouts

  • No-rail, cue ball exercise. Select a starting position and a target location. Shoot the cue ball to stop on the target. Rearrange distances at will.
  • One-rail, cue ball exercise. Select a starting position and target position. Shoot the cue ball off the rail and onto the target. Rearrange distances at will.
  • Two-rail, cue ball exercise. Select a starting position and target position. Shoot the cue ball off two different rails and onto the target. Rearrange distances at will.

Object ball workouts

  • No-rail, object ball exercise. Select a starting position and place two donuts (one for the cue ball and for object ball). Lay down a Post-It sheet for the target position. Shoot the object ball to stop on the target. Rearrange distances at will.
  • One-rail, object ball exercise. Select a starting position and place two donuts (one for the cue ball and for object ball). Shoot the object ball to one rail and stop on the target. Rearrange distances and angles at will.
  • Two-rail, object ball exercise. Select a starting position and place two donuts (one for the cue ball and for object ball). Shoot the object ball to one rail and off another rail to stop on the target. Rearrange distances and angles at will.

This is more than enough to keep you busy gaining greater and greater ball control skills. Do not start out with situations that are so difficult that you cannot easily achieve success. Begin with what you can accomplish, and then gradually increase the difficulty factor.
