Cause and effect is defined as, “A relationship in which one event (the cause) makes another event happen (the effect).”
Posting a shot is defined as: “To retain a stationary, stable, balanced position until well after the end of a delivery.”
Knee continuation is the cause in this example while posting a shot is the effect.
Gold Coach and Bowler Development Lead at Bowlersmart Richard Shockley will walk through what happens when you knee flexes and when it doesn’t while posting a shot.
Posting a shot happens in the finish position at the foul line.
Your knee continues to flex forward as your sliide stops. The rest of the body follows in line with the knee until you have nicely posted your shot. Knee continuation gives you balance and control at the bottom of the swing.
An area where bowlers run into problems is when they fall off the shot while posting it. Falling off is caused by the knee stiffening instead of flexing. It’s a sure fire way to miss the target you are aiming at.
