    Wonderful to see two great coaches, Randy and Stephen, and also the very nice technical improvements of Verity and Diana under Randy’s supervision at Kegel !
    Good job!

    I found this video very inadequate. Would have been nice if someone had actually demonstrated the correction he was talking about. And just how is this late timing a liability for the woman pros who are the best in the world? Isn’t the late timing beneficial to give the body a chance to be firmly balanced at the line by the time the ball swings through?

      Hi Rod,
      Coach Randy has a female bowler from his successful collegiate program demonstrating the “hinge” technique that he recommends for the quicker ball start. His experience with late timing and it’s possible liabilities has led to the need for his recommended adjustment.

      Coach also explains that while Diandra has late timing she’s one of the best bowlers in the world, but, in his opinion, he would not necessarily teach someone her technique. His examples of how late timing can be a liability include: lack of balance, rushed back swing, improper swing alignment, decreased rev rate and low back swing.

      A balanced finish position will provide stable leverage and balancing the swing with the correct footwork can make all the difference in a bowlers efficiency and repeatability.

    tore medial and lateral meniscus. I had an MRI, suggested physical therapy. Does hurt around a 7.
    l think I should rest and ice it for a few days. Just walking around on it makes it sore, Any ideas or experiences.

      I’ll begin by saying I’m not a doctor or physical therapist. My recommendation would be to follow your doctors and/or therapist’s orders, if they recommend rest and ice for a few days you should do so. If your body tells you that simply walking around makes it sore then you should listen to your body and probably stay off it. I have no personal experiences with this injury and recommend a full recovery before getting back to bowling.
