The analysis of the existing methods of training shooters from military weapons, in particular, from the Kalashnikov assault rifle, showed that most of them are based on the methods of bullet shooting from a small-caliber rifle. However, the design differences and differences in the tactical and technical characteristics of combat and sporting weapons determine the search for new methods of training athletes, adapted to combat weapons. The aim of the study was to search for methods of general physical training of shooters from the Kalashnikov assault rifle, which ensure all-round physical development, improvement of the functional base, and growth of results in competitive activity. In the course of the research work, the general scientific methods were used: analysis, synthesis, deduction, induction, experiment, observation. The experiment was carried out on the basis of the Academy of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia with cadets of the group of sports improvement in shooting from military weapons. The control and experimental groups consisted of 10 sportsmen shooters. The experiment was carried out for two months, the work was divided into two periods: general preparatory (6 weeks) and pre-competition (2 weeks). Because of the work, it was concluded that in the course of applying the methodology, the experimental group had a higher average growth in shooting results.
