Bowling Body Posture, Originally Posted: 7/4/2012; Updated: 7/10/2023

Proper bowling body posture is very important in maintaining good balance and in making accurate deliveries. Maintaining an athletic bowling body posture during your approach will encourage consistent deliveries of your bowling ball because of a stable body positioning during your sliding step.
Here are a few keys for beginning and advancing bowlers to good bowling body posture:
1. In the stance position, lean forward about 10-15 degrees upper-body tilt and flex your knees as to bring your knee caps directly over the toes of your bowling shoes.
2. Ensure your bowling shoulder is about one inch maximum below the level of your non-bowling shoulder.
3. If you have a curve or hook ball delivery, keep your bowling shoulder slightly behind your non-bowling shoulder throughout your approach, perhaps one inch lagging the non-bowling shoulder.
4. Avoid excessive shoulder-rotation back-and-forward while swinging the bowling ball.
5. Maintain alignment of the front-portion of your bowling shoulder toward your sighting target on the lane as long as possible during the approach.
6. Keep your head steady with your chin at or above shoulder level to help you maintain good overall balance.
7. Remain in your same athletic posture during your approach and while releasing the ball during the sliding step.
8. Avoid unnecessary upper-body elevation changes, either upward, downward, forward or back during your approach and delivery.

These keys will help you in gaining consistently good results.
