CENTER YOUR SLIDE





Below is a tip brought to you by eteamz user Constantine:

For these discussions I am going to assume the bowler is right-handed, so the lefties will need to reverse the feet and hand mentioned.

Center Your Slide -- To maintain balance, do not bowl like you walk.

Try this simple experiment: stand with your feet slightly more than shoulder width apart and then lift your right foot. Obviously, you fell to the right because your weight was not centered. Now stand with your left foot in the middle of your stance and lift your right foot. You did not fall because your weight is centered over your left foot.

When you bowl, your last step should not be a normal step. Instead you should step to the middle of your body to keep your weight in balance.
