    I don't wear one but looks like a low brace height on that LB.
    One of my Korean bows was about 5.5" & I would get slapped if I didn't hold & follow thru correctly. I soon learned which way my elbow had to point
    It's ironic I would get slapped at all as I can't fully straighten my left arm due to a previous dislocated elbow.

    I shoot and have many styles of bows. My favorite for a long time has been the Olympic recurve style. I haven't shot my compound since last deer season.

    What the pull weight at anchor with that Olympic bow ? Iam guessing 40 lbs...something you can shoot all day.

    Wouldn't hurt to train up to it with a lighter bow for a short time.

    "If you leave pulling a bow for one day archery leaves you for ten days"
    According to that old saying you got some catching up to do

    Hopefully your not trying to hold your draw, while taking aim. Long bows are a draw and release, kinda thing.
    Holding the draw on a long bow will tear you up, eventually. As said, a lighter bow might be beneficial to building your muscle memory.
