Intro: How to Bowl Strikes in 10-pin Bowling
Hello today i will show you how to bowl strikes in 10-pin bowling
the ball i will mainly be throwing will be the c-system alpha max by brunswick i will upload some pics of it.
Step 1: The Basics
a couple things you should know is that when you are releasing a finger tip bowling ball that means it has inserts in the finger holes your thumb should all ways come at first i will post a video of my brother doing it.
second you should always stay down after finishing your release never pop up *never pop up*
third you always want a min of at least 4 steps, right handers start on right foot end on left foot, and left handers start on left foot and end on right.
also the max steps you should have is 5 steps, righties start on left foot, and lefties start on right foot.
lastly while bowling in leagues you should never get angry or mad the best thing to do is just shrug it off or laugh about it like i do, also when bowling a strike the best way to intimidate your opponent and get pumped up about it would be just scream out yeah or something do something exciting but please do not go around bragging unless you just bowled a 300 game.
Step 2: How to Hold the Bowling Ball
when holding the ball in the proper position for a curve you should place your hand where it is comfortable to hold it, i hold it close to my thigh.
secondly you should try to cup the ball, also as a right hander i also twist my wrist to the right i will try to show you a picture of it.
you should also always squeeze your fingers never your thumb.
when you follow through your thumb for a right hander should finish at 11 o'clock 1 o'clock for lefties
so when bringing that together you should bring the ball back straight with the ball cupped and twisted just a little release it over the foul line with your thumb coming out first and after that it should end at 11 or 1 naturally.
Step 3: Ball Placement
ball placement on the lane is a key part of bowling.
there are different spots you should place the ball if you are a stroker, power player, tweener, or cranker, i am a power player meaning i can still get alot of revs on my ball and get it to go 17.5 mph at the same time so i stand between the 1-2 or 2-3 dots on the left side of the lane i will show you a pic, for a stroker, someone who puts few revs on the ball, i would play more on the 2-3 dots on the right side of the lane all these things im telling you is for right handers you left handers just do opposite. for a cranker, someone who gets to many revs in comparison to speed would stand on the left side in between the 1-2 dots. lasty for a tweener, with both speed and revs about equal would stand on the left in between the 2-3 dots.
Step 4: Good Luck
well i hope you can start throwing some strikes so you can rule all your friends i will have some videos posted up later on how to do the stuff and maybe some trick bowling videos.
