As brent375hh points out bulk muscles are not wanted in slow deliberate shooting.  Fast twitch muscles (those with bulk) move too rapidly, but are great for moving heavy weights.  What you want to do is balance and slow movement exercises like yoga and Tai Chi.  Instead of lifting heavy weights rapidly a few times (as is the process for strength training), very slow controlled motions with light weights is much more productive for this sport.
