What A Lifetime Of Archery Does To Your Body

Archery is an ancient sport that looks very elegant, and archers look quite graceful as they draw back the string and stand ready to let launch, but the sport takes a severe toll on the archer's body, especially their back and shoulders.

Master archer Gary Chynne created this video to show you exactly what a lifetime of archery has done to his body, starting with the fact that his left shoulder is larger, stronger and sits higher than his right.

And then he turns his back to the camera and draws back the string on his bow, revealing all the back and shoulder muscles an archer uses every time they fire an arrow.

Naah. You're being too Americo-Euro-Centric! There are probably cultures in which Santa delivers presents by shooting them to the house on an arrow! Santa would have to draw his bow millions of times on Christmas Eve.
