So why not do this all the time?
Some bowlers do. They never come to a complete stop. Rare, but if it works for you, go for it!
Because for most of us, before every shot, there should be a moment of composing yourself and preparing for the shot. Be aware of oil conditions, review what happened the last frame when you bowled on this particular lane. Repeat the shot if you struck, adjust your target, ball speed, or entry angle if you missed. There’s a lot to prepare for. This drill is for those who tend to over-prepare and end up throwing the ball with no smoothness because you are stuck on mechanics.
@InsideBowling it alows you to add more steps if needed if you are needing ball speed in a particular moment
That’s why I love this channel thank you so much
Thank you too for watching and the nice comment!
I really needed a drill like this. I’ve been overthinking so much my avg went from the mid 220s down to a 160.
It’s something easy and fun to add to your practice routine. Just make sure you look both ways before going!
I totally agree. My average went from 205 to 175 because of over thinking.
Thanks to the “Mikes”. Grab and Go that`s a brilliant idea…
Thanks Mike! Hope you are well. – Flanagan
This may have been the best advice I ever got. I am so in my head about bowling at the moment. “If you think, you stink”. So many tips and videos and perspectives. I just need to let my body do it’s thing and relax. We worry so much about swing, release, approach, etc, when we should just relax and throw the ball. Such essential and helpful advice to those who overthink the game while still learning.
Gotta love feeling like a million bucks ready to throw >800 walking in… and then you remember you body only knows what a ~500 avg “does.” In shooting we focus on taking over-thinking out of the sport and in bowling it makes perfect sense. Keep working. You’ll be great man!
Literally me as Im currently new to bowling
I love this guy. Thanks for this.
Just what I needed now. I am overthinker! 👍😁
Pro Tip – Pick up your bowling ball and bowl like all the clueless teenagers that have no idea how to bowl. 🙄
Can I use the bumpers? LOLOLOL
So the tip is to walk to the lane? I don’t quite understand the tip
No, the tip is to not overthink, don’t freeze in the ready position and do a million checklist things if that’s what’s you’ve been overdoing. The tip is: Pick up the ball, walk up to the lane, and in a natural motion just do your push-off, back-swing, then swing your arm forward and release. We’ve all built up some muscle memory and your body already knows the proper rhythm and timing. This drill allows you to throw the ball without tightening up and overthinking, as lots of us do.
Does it matter what foot you start out with and whether you are left or right handed?.
The great Mark Roth was some what of a grab and go he would some times be 7 steps some times 6 I do not believe 5 much if at all, seemed to work rather well for him.
sometimes I bowl best when I am tired and can’t think anymore. Just let my body do the throwing.
Same here. If I don’t collapse at the shoulder, my spare shooting would improve tremendously, and my average too
I will try this fun thing tonight, 9/9/21
I do this all the time. Usually after my first shot goes in the ditch.
This is one of the best tips that I’ve heard and actually used myself. It allows me to be fluent and not tense nor grabby. Thanks
Thanks…enjoy all your tips
