How To Improve Your Bowling Concentration

If you find your ability to keep you mind on your game during competition, then learning how to improve your bowling concentration will help you perform under pressure. Since there are many reasons why bowlers experience pressure to perform to a high standard and thereby suffer from an inability to remain focused on key elements of their game, it helps to understand what causes losses of or lapses in concentration and how to improve your bowling concentration.

Improving powers of concentration means to first identify key elements of your game and the challenges lane conditions present during competition. If you are scheduled to bowl three hours of competition, for example, then it is virtually impossible to keep your mind focused on your bowling and avoid any and all distractions for the entire time on the lanes. Therefore, it is important to minimize distractions such as running conversations with other players, watching TV monitors or watching others bowling nearby you while you are awaiting your turn between frames. Since we have only so much useful energy to dedicate to any athletic endeavor, it makes sense to conserve the energy for when it is needed and that is in preparation for and in the execution of your physical game bowling deliveries.

Avoiding too much interaction with others on your pair of lanes or nearby lanes is one way to channel your energies. Scoreboard watching is only useful when you are making a run at achieving a good enough score to advance in a tournament. Most coaches recommend to not scoreboard watch but rather pay attention to focusing on your next delivery and on the challenges the lane conditions present. Since the key to bowling well is to overcome most physical game and lane challenges during competition, then reducing the number of things you think about between frames and between games is very important and will direct your energies to the important tasks at hand.

Key on perhaps two or three critical components of your physical game and monitor these components while you step on the approach and walk to the foul line and throughout the entire delivery process. Maybe your keys are to keep your eyes focused on your target, to avoid rushing your footwork when walking to the foul line, or perhaps to keeping your bowling hand behind the ball until the critical "moment of release" occurs?

Perhaps you must key on maintaining or regulating your ball speed, on releasing your ball two feet past the foul line, or simply to keep good balance and avoid unnecessary head or shoulder movement until well after the ball has been released. Regardless of which physical game keys you choose to focus on during your preparations for and during the actual delivery process, keep the keys simple and focus on what it takes to make a good delivery. Cluttering your mind with too many physical game thoughts only will lead to the inability to repeat good deliveries. Think of making one good delivery at a time and then move on to what it will take to make one good delivery your next turn.

The concept of monitoring your physical game and letting yourself flow with the motion of your approach is a proven winning technique. It is possible to consciously think about only one or two key components to your physical game but still allow yourself the freedom to walk and swing the ball smoothly and without tension during the approach to the foul line. This process is a monitoring process and will conserve needed energy through the duration of your competitive session on the lanes.

Monitoring the challenges beyond the foul line between frames is another essential ingredient in bowling concentration. It is vital to any player seeking success in scoring to play the lanes correctly and to make sensible adjustments as needed.

Planning the next delivery is a process which reoccurs after each frame. Between frames it is important to think about where you will align yourself on the next delivery and where you will specifically sight on the lane as your target. Committing to a specific target on the lane and keeping that target in your focus throughout your approach and delivery is as important as monitoring your physical game keys.

Your brain is your computer. Your computer sends signals to your legs and bowling hand where to deliver the ball. If you input vague or non-committed information to the brain, expect vague and random results. You must, at all costs, focus on precisely where you want your ball to contact a target down the lane and use your eyes and your means to convey the information to your brain. Your brain in return will signal your physical body to deliver the ball exactly where you want the ball to go. Make an effort to understand this "human loop" of inputting information into your computer, your brain, and how the computer sends the signals to your body to react accordingly.

You must train your mind as well as your body during practice sessions to improve your personal powers of concentration. During practice sessions, call out the number of the board your ball rolls over near your down lane target. If you sight the ten board, for example, and your ball rolls over the nine board, vocalize aloud "nine board." If you roll the ball over the eleven board, then vocalize "eleven board."

Making yourself aware fully of where your ball has crossed in your target area will make you into a more accurate player. Vocalizing the board your ball crosses in the target area on the lane signals the brain where in relation to your chosen target your ball has crossed in that zone. You must command the brain with specific information to get the positive results you seek.

The entire process of targeting on the lane requires as much focus and concentration as does monitoring your physical game during your approach to the foul line. By developing the habit and pattern of spending as much time as possible during your competitive sessions in monitoring your lane play and your physical game keys will thereby reduce the amount of time you have to become distracted with outside and unneeded activities.

It is not possible to concentrate with full absorption of thought and commitment on each delivery in each frame of your competition unless you train yourself to do so during practice sessions. Practice with enthusiasm, with purpose, and with intent on focusing on your physical game and alignment techniques. Socialize before and after your sessions on the lanes. While in competition, think about what you have to do to strike. It can be that simple.

How To Grip Your Bowling Ball

If you wish to learn how to grip your bowling ball, then here are some tips to help develop a good technique. Your ability to know how to grip your bowling ball will help you regulate your release, control bowling ball speed, ball direction and maintain a consistent rev-rate, all of which will work in helping you improve your scores.

First, most coaches and pro shop operators who drill bowling balls recommend placing your bowling fingers into your ball before your bowling thumb. This technique is a proven one over many years and works toward gaining a consistent placement of your bowling hand into the bowling ball repeatedly.

Place your bowling fingers into your bowling ball gripping holes completely down to the second knuckle joint if you are using a conventional grip ball, then carefully place your thumb down into the thumb gripping hole all the way down so the inside pads of your thumb are fit into the hole in a straight manner with no bending at the knuckle joint. The palm of your hand should be almost completely resting on the ball surface after your fingers and thumb are properly placed into the gripping holes.

Try and avoid excessive gripping pressure in holding the ball. If the gripping holes of the ball fit properly, you will never have to squeeze the ball to hold and swing the ball but rather use modest gripping pressure to enhance consistent deliveries of the ball.

As a beginning bowler or newcomer to the game, you likely are using a conventional grip with either a house ball or one drilled for you. Conventional grips are easy to hold but do not offer the ability to impart maximum power during your release. Fingertip grips will give you the best chance at the most effective release. Once your coach or pro shop operator think you are ready to use a fingertip grip, then make the change.

To properly grip a fingertip drilled ball, place your bowling fingers down to the first knuckle joint with the pads of your fingers gripping the holes firmly enough to support the weight of the swinging bowling ball. Place your thumb into the gripping hole entirely down as far as the thumb will go and make sure the thumb does not bend at the joint by curling your knuckle inside the hole. There should be about twice as much gripping pressure applied by the fingers than the thumb once you have properly gripped the finger tip drilled bowling ball.

The palm of your hand should rest on the surface of the ball without too much space between the palm of your hand and the ball surface. Keep your "pinky" finger (your small finger) resting against the ring finger which is inside it's gripping hole. Allow your index finger to either rest against the middle gripping finger or spread out from the middle finger for increased gripping balance purposes.

It is important to own a properly fitting bowling ball. It is also very important to learn the fundamentals of making a good bowling approach and I recommend you take lessons from a certified bowling coach or from a local bowling professional to assist you on your path to improvement.

Now, that we have given you around 45 articles of bowling knowledge, maybe this time it's your turn to express or tell me which of the articles works best for you. You can post on this thread which articles really works for you, so i will have an idea on what to add more. thanks for taking your time reading the articles. I'm sure your game will improve with this sharing of knowledge. Hope to hear from you soon!
