Why Swing Trainers are So Important for Bowlers of All Skill Levels
The most important component of a successful game is a strong, consistent arm swing. In order to have a successful swing, you have to have excellent tempo and direction. Practicing your swinging motion can go a long way toward building muscle memory. Once you have that, having a great swing will be second nature once you hit the lanes.
What’s an example of good “swing direction?” Picture yourself giving someone else a handshake, with your bowling arm fully extended in front of the shoulder. The fingers you use to put in the holes of your ball should be slightly outside the shoulder. Now picture that arm position as you’re releasing the ball, and during your follow-through. If you can do this on a consistent basis, that should go a long way toward helping to improve your game.
How to Use Your Swing Trainer
A swing trainer can help provide the consistency that may have been lacking in your game up to this point. Here’s a quick look at how to use it at home.
- First, find an area near a wall that has no obstructions, like a table, chair or any other piece of furniture. You’ll need an area where you can swing freely.
- Face the wall with your shoulders in a nearly parallel position. Your bowling shoulder should be about an inch behind the other shoulder.
- Move your bowling arm into the “handshake” position you learned about earlier. When you extend your arm, the tips of your fingers should be about an inch from the wall.
- Holding the swing trainer, smoothly move your arm in a back-and-forth motion. Keep it loose. Swing so your “bowling fingers” reach the same spot on the wall where you started.
- Repeat this motion. Each time, try to time it so your fingers reach that spot. It’s not as easy as you might think.
The purpose of this drill is to train yourself to keep your arm on the right upward path. Never reach out – instead, reach upward. Doing this will help your ball stay on the target line. If you ever touch the wall, that will mean you’re reaching instead of moving upward.
This is just one of the many drills you can perform at home using your new swing training tool. If you put in the time and the work, it won’t be long until you can do it on command. When this happens, there’s a very good chance your scores will rise to a level you might not have imagined possible.
