Randy Peterson: Hi everybody! Randy Peterson with you once again along with Storm Bowling Products and Roto Grip. We're still talking about basic bowling techniques. Today, we're going to talk about the correct setup and how to create a pendulum arm swing.

Hey! Let's talk about setup for a minute. Bowling is a sport, in any sport you need to have good posture and good setup. That means good weight distribution. You'd never see anybody in bowling that was any good leaning way back like this to start or leaning too far forward. You want to have your knees bent slightly. You want to have your weight distributed evenly, because remember, you're carrying a heavy object and you've got to transport that object all about 10 to 12 feet or so. So it's important to get a good sound steady base before you start your approach.

Hey folks! Let's talk about creating a pendulum arm swing, okay? I think the best way to do that is by taking a page out of a lot of professionals' notebooks and that is we want to use gravity to create that pendulum swing.

Remember, we talked about pushing the ball away and getting it at a 45 degree angle, once we push the ball away from us. After this happens, I want you to allow gravity to make that bowling bowl and that arm move back and forth. Remember, gravity is constant; it's the same every single day, even though our bodies change and our feelings change from day to day, gravity never changes. If you employ gravity in your swing, I promise you, you'll be a better bowler.

Coming up next, we're going to talk about release and follow-through, also, a straight ball release versus a hook ball release. All of this is going to help make you a better bowler.
