Keep A Steady Head For Steady Bowling Results


Maintaining good bowling balance while taking your approach and making your delivery is key to successful results. Your head is as important to keeping good body balance during your approach as anything.

The human head of adults weights as much as some bowling balls. It is important to recognize that keeping your head still and as motionless as possible, will help you with your body balance when walking to the foul line.

Begin with setting up on the approach in an athletic posture. Lean forward about 10 degrees upper-body tilt, allow your backside to push outward slightly, and flex your knees.

Set your head in a level position so your chin is not downward or in contact with your chest. A level head position while you walk to the foul line will help you maintain good upper body balance as you enter the critical release zone readying to deliver your bowling ball.

Sudden movements of your head will change the center of balance in your torso. Keep your head steady with your chin at or above shoulder level so you are able to maintain balance and stability throughout the approach to the foul line.

To do so, it helps to keep your eyes fixed on your target. Remaining motionless with your torso other than swinging your bowling ballduring your approach will make it easy to keep your head level and see your target clearly from the start to finish of your approach.

Relaxed and flexed knees while you walk to the line will prevent unneeded bouncing and will help you maintain a level head position while you walk.

Visualize balancing a glass of water on top of your head while walking to the line and do not spill a drop. You can also visualize balancing a book on top of your head when taking your approach and delivering your bowling ball so the book does not drop to the floor.

As in any sport, good balance leads to good results. Your chances for error increase when you introduce unneeded head movement during your approach. Keeping your head still and your eyes on your target while walking to the line will lead to improved bowling scores.
