Attempted a new bowling approach at leagues

I am a self-taught two-handed bowler.

Over the summer, I practiced twice to three times a week in order to get comfortable with my bowling approach and release.

But, I decided to change that up. Over the weekend, I attempted the standard two-handed bowling approach which has a little hop/skip before releasing the ball.

With that in mind, Friday, I decided to give it a go, and practice the approach in my back yard.

Over the weekend, I became comfortable with the approach, but definitely didn't feel like I mastered it.

So, come Sunday, it was time to put the weekends practice into action.

How I did

I ended up bowling decent. My average going into the week was 156.

My first game, I bowled a 202.

Second, was a 148.

and third, was a 129.

As you can see, I fell apart as the games went on, but overall, I averaged 159.67 which is technically over my league average. Pretty good I would say so myself! Especially since I was trying a new approach that I learned the Friday before!

Extremely sore...

However, learning a new approach and utilizing it within a weekend has left me rather sore today...

The new approach utilized a few new muscles that I clearly never use, and with the amount of bowling practice I did over the weekend, my knees and hip are not happy.

Today is going to be a rest day! Back to practicing tomorrow or Wednesday depending on how I am feeling.
