Bowling Balance

Maintaining good bowling balance during your approach is extremely important in making an effective bowling ball delivery. Maintaining good posture and being in an athletic position at all times during the approach to the foul line are key to good bowling balance. The position of your upper body at stance and throughout the approach to the foul line will encourage consistent releasing action because of a stable body positioning during your sliding step.

In the stance position, lean forward about 10-15 degrees upper-body tilt, allow your backside to push outward slightly, and flex your knees as to bring the knee caps directly over the toes of your shoes. This stance will encourage a solid, athletic body set-up position before you begin walking to the foul line. This posture should be maintained during the slide and release.

Place the bowling ball in your bowling hand immediately in front of your bowling shoulder and as close to your body as is comfortable. The closer the ball is to your body, the more relaxed are the arm muscles and the desired arm-swing path will be achieved. Maintain this relationship of shoulders above the knees and the degree of upper-body tilt throughout the walk to the foul line to ensure good balance and stability while releasing the ball.

Keep your head steady with the chin above shoulder level and pointing to your target so you would be able to maintain balance and stability throughout the approach to the foul line with your eyes fixed on your target. Remain motionless with the upper body at all times during the approach and as stable as possible while releasing the ball during the sliding step. Avoid unnecessary upper-body elevation changes, either upward, downward, forward or back, during the approach and the release. Consistently good results in bowling happen with a solid foundation linked with a stable, upper body positioning during the entire approach.
