question: how much % of the weight should the left foot have along with the right foot when starting the 1 step practice.

This is what happens to me. If I have more weight on my right foot to start then the left lets say 70+%, when I go to put my left foot out, my left foot moves 5 boards to the right. The more weight I put on my left foot on the start, the more straight my leg goes out. If I am >50% of the weight on the left foot, my left foot will slide straight up the boards or max 1 board to the right.

I am in the process of ordering a less slide sole. the shoes came with an 8 and going to get an 8 and see how that works. Then the next step would be take the hell down from the strongest heel h7 down to h6 or h5.

how do you know if it is your shoes that are making you slide too much? when I go to test the slide before I bowl, I usually get atleast a foot of slide just by taking 1 step to test it.

I just looked up this and about to read: https://www.bowlingthismonth.com/bowlin ... you-slide/

10% on left toe at address See A1 in Side View below (student at address)


how do you know if it is your shoes that are making you slide too much? You are not sliding TOO MUCH!

Stop confusing yourself with this type of information. You are not nor will ever be Marshall. My goal is to make you the best you that you can become, not make you a clone of anyone else!

Side View
1) In Slide "A" stand more upright at address (use A1 as a template) with left arm pointing more downward
2) Also, move your left foot back even with the right heel (up on the toe.....again use A1 as template)
3) Your back should be very upright at address (look at A1)
4) In Slide "C" the ball needs to be positioned above your head like it was previously in C1.
5) In Slide "D" your release is past your foot time the foot stops sliding.
6) Getting the ball above your head will fix the release timing issue.

You are much improved from your initial attempt at this drill.

All of these things would have been fixed in one lesson, unfortunately, we're communicating with the written word.
So that means you have to exhibit patience and let the process develop, quite looking for answers elsewhere.

Back View
1) Only item here is the position of your trail foot in H.
2) You need to let the foot supinate in order that it is the same relation as Verity's.
3) Toe to the left and heel to the right in Slide "H".

Keep up the good work, you're getting close.

krava, it seems to me that you should consider medical advice to address the cause
of your pain. Armed with the facts, you could then apply appropriate rest and rehab.
You are a young man. Injuries are an unfortunate part of sports. Your shoulder problem is
chronic. Many years ago I injured my bowling hand. I taught myself how to use the other one.
I made the mistake of coming back too soon and reinjured the hand.
Get proper care, rest, rehab and come back stronger. While you are sitting out, study your videos and Jim's instructions.
Work your way up to drills with light props when ready.
Give it some thought buddy, barring the unforeseen, time is on your side.

Sounds like a wise choice.
