Review

The Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Bowling may be the best book on the subject, and not only because it's the only book on the subject. Part of Robert Price's Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Sports series, the book contains descriptions and photographs of nearly 100 weight training, flexibility and abdominal exercises. It features year round bowling-specific weight-training programs and comes with links to free record keeping charts. The book's clean design and well-illustrated instructions make it a valuable guide for those looking to get themselves in top bowling condition. --US Bowler Magazine, Winter 2007-08 Edition

I bowl at tournament {NABI} level. Your book has helped my endurance, power, and finesse. I've never even heard of most of the exercises the book prescribed for me, but let me tell you THEY HAVE WORKED. My form is much smoother than it's ever been and my wrist snaps with the force and precision of a professional. I've already told a handful of my friends about your Bowling book and I wouldn't be surprised if they've already bought it. Thanks again. --Alfred D

I just started your Bowling Program from the Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Bowling. I have been a long time recreational bowler with two 700 series to my credit and I have won a doubles tournament. I m just coming back after an 18 month injury layover. This program will definitely help me with strengthen the muscles I need to bowl so I can prevent being injured again. I have been working out with a trainer in person for the past 12 months, but now I can focus on keeping records and training on my own with your books help. Thanks a million. --Allen K

It's not only the "ultimate" guide to weight training for bowling, but I think that it's the ONLY guide to weight training for bowlng. Obviously, anyone could build a workout program to strengthen their body, but it's nice to have a resource provided by knowledgeable folks to make it easy for you. This guide provides an easy to ready plan, complete with pictures, to help bowlers improve their strength. The purpose is to help bowlers ultimately improve the explosive quality of the ball in the pocket, from the first roll to the last. This is most critical when bowlers get caught in a long day at competitive meets where they are sure to bowl more than three quick games. The stress of competition can easily tire a competitor physically, so physical fitness is a must. This book walks you through the stretching and the exercises and a rotation plan that uses four different training programs. It's a short, to-the-point book that may be a no-brainer to fitness buffs, but still serves as a handy reference to keep everyone, at any level, focused and fit. The rating is based on the fact that the book accomplishes its stated purpose and meets the expectations that anyone should have for this book.

This is a book on weight training. There are words within this book that allude to bowling in the initial pages, but don't expect much specifics, if any, on how an exercise will relate to improving bowling. Will the exercises help? As much as any decent training program, I suppose. There are a lot of different exercises, maybe too many, and that is why it would have been nice to understand how a specific exercise will benefit a bowler. I can only recommend this book if you don't already own a decent book on weight training. Change the title and substitute almost any sport for "bowling" in the early pages and this book would read the same. As I already own many exercise books, I lost interest real quick. I'll take another look, but unless I missed something, buy only if you don't have weight and exercise books now.

There are several books on mental training that I have read but for the physical end of things this book is great. The stronger and more flexible you are the easier it will be to control your ball. Some of the training in this book will interact with your mental training. Such as Being strong enough to fine tune your control but NOT to muscle it down the alley. Think of it this way. You have a tennis ball in your hand and you want to toss it into the air but just as you loose touch with it you want to caress the bottom of the ball. Now think of having a bowling ball in the same position and want to do the same thing. The stronger you are the easier it will be to do that to the bowling ball because it is not near your strength limit.

The information is good, I expected to learn something new, but I didn't. Not the book's fault. The book was in mint condition,(bought it used). I'll past it on to the kids.
