Exercises are pre-packaged courses of fire made by other LASR Users for you to download and shoot. The Exercise format is extremely flexible and can be used for just about anything. Here are some examples of exercise types that already exist:
- LE Qualifications
- Official Classifier Stages
- Workouts to help you fine-tune skills
- Instructional courses-of-fire to teach you new techniques
- Cross-fit style shooting and workout mash-ups
- Courses of fire for instructors to use in the classroom
And more, as, again, the format allows for just about anything you can imagine.
All content in the LASR Community is made by other LASR Users, so it can vary pretty widely. If you come across an exercise you don't care for, then give a different one a try!
Your settings will be completely locked down when you're inside of an exercise, so there are a few things that you'll want to check before you start.
- Camera settings, including selected device and resolution
- Timesheet font size
Once you have those set, you can click on the LASR Community button up in the top right.
If you aren't currently logged into a LASR Community account, you'll be asked to do so now. If you don't have an account, there is a link to create one on this page.
You're now on the Browse Exercises page.
From here, you can see a list of all available exercises, or search/filter your results using the options on the left.
While looking through the list of exercises, be sure to pay attention to the intended use and requirements under the exercise's thumbnail. Once you've found an exercise that you'd like to try, click the "Run This Exercise" button.
If the exercise has any printable targets, you'll be shown this dialog window. If you haven't already printed out the targets for this exercise, you'll want to click "Yes" on this dialog, and print out the PDF that opens.
After that dialog window goes away, you'll be shown the setup instructions for the exercise. These include details on how to set up your targets, shooting positions, and anything else that needs to be in place before you start shooting. If there are any written instructions, they'll appear over on the left, while the optional video may appear on the right. Also on the right is a picture showing you how your physical targets should be lined up in accordance to your target zones.
Once you have everything set up and you're ready to start shooting, you can click on the "Begin Exercise" button at the bottom of the window.
