Re: Slight inconsistancys between shots some times in a game

Like it or not, humans are not machines. One on the reasons elite athletes are elite, is that they have been gifted by their maker! Many people can sing and carry a tune, they may even have perfect pitch. However, how well they sing is their natural ability. Granted training will optimize their perf...

Re: How many average games can you bowl before wrist pain

Consider printing off your description of this problem and talking to your doctor about it. It might appear to some, that you are trying to force your body to fail. Time between shots? An ounce of prevention ... Except from the article below Bowlers often have to throw a 16-pound ball using differen...

Re: How many average games can you bowl before wrist pain

Too much muscle, too much grab. Get your fit checked and stop manipulating the ball so much. Use the wiki fit to get a good, comfortable base fit. http://wiki.bowlingchat.net/wiki/index.php?title=File:MorichFitting.pdf A point which probably cannot be over emphasized. Eric has probably drilled thou...

No points for stoicism ... Here are a few videos by Sam Webster. Sam teaches anatomy, he often used humor in his lessons. It's good to know how your body is designed and how it functions. WRIST CURLS ONLY WORK ONE PLANE OF MOTION, NOT THE FULL RANGE OF MOTION!!! Does a baseball pitcher throw to and ...

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

Baby steps, work on getting your hand behind the ball first. You’re focusing on the last part of the chain and not concentrating on the position that the arm needs to be in. Lead with the inside elbow and quit pulling the ball down. To help groove the feel of what Stacy described, try practicing in...

Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

Off the top of my head - In reading Deans response, I wonder if a side view and or front view would help. A better view of the timing of the off hand might highlight Dean's points.

krava, I know you've worked with some Coachs. You've traveled to see Susie Minshew, perhaps others. As has been mentioned before, until you believe and commit, you will be like a hamster on one of those wheels, working hard but getting nowhere.
