Spend some time watching the world’s best bowlers, and you’ll notice that one of the components of their approach that they keep most consistent is the angle and timing of their balance arm.

Bowling coaches Rod Ross and Kim Terrell-Kearney teach you what happens when you 1) swing your balance arm too early 2) swing it too high and 3) use your balance arm effectively. They also demonstrate proper finishing position, or what the pros like to call “nailing the shot”, and discuss what can happen when you fall off the shot.
