Have you got a weight problem ?               from Howard Jarrold

Here is the problem. You are bowling outside and have mastered the line and weight ,both of which are different to indoors. You have an indoor match to play and realise that you need to get indoors to adjust your game. So a 2hr slot is booked and you spend that time bowling a huge number of woods to a distant jack without a plan or any real thought out structured order of practise, designed to achieve your goal.
As we near the start of the winter season the above scenario will be common place. So how should you go about things ?
1. Work in one hour sessions with FOUR woods not eight. Quality not quantity is the order of the day.
2. Work without the jack. You need to get the line right first so, with each bowl you deliver, have it in mind that you are going to bowl long medium or short, but line is your primary aim. You will be surprised how often you will get the length that was in your mind, but give yourself a pat on the back, and try again with line as your goal.
3. Alternate backhand and forehand. When you can bring the wood back on centre line both up and down the rink on both hands then take a break, have a Kit Kat and give yourself another pat on the back.
4.Those of you that are still awake and not bored to tears can now bring the jack into play and prepare to be amazed at how close you can get to the jack now and you haven't worked on weight at all !
5.If you need to work on weight then alter the mat as well as the jack position. When you are on the mat judge how long it is and give it a name e.g. Full length, long, med, etc . It wont be long before you will be able to produce a specific length delivery at will.
6. The secret to success at any sport is practice. Hours spent in short ( at least one hour ) targeted sessions will pay dividends.
7. Finish your workout when you have achieved a particular goal. e.g. jack 2ft ft from side ditch and 2ft from back ditch. End the session when you have all four within 4ft. In other words set targets.
I am glad to help . Email me being the best way to contact me.
