Bow for a woman with muscle disease
Our 21 yr old son just bought his own compound bow. Since I love being outside, I am hoping to tag along with him on occasion or at least for practice.
I have fibromyalgia which is a muscle disease. I'm not totally weak, but I am not strong either. I certainly don't think I could pull the Bear Charger he purchased, but I am thinking a bow could help me build some arm strength.
I am 5 ft tall. This would be my first bow. What would you recommend to start with without breaking the bank since I'm not sure how my muscles will tolerate it. What specs should I be looking for? I am 49, but would I be better off with a youth bow to start?
Appreciate any advice and recommendations. If I can tolerate it, I am hoping to get my husband to join us in the future. Thx.
