Day 16 Bowl’em Away!!!


I’m often asked how do you keep your weight stable?…GOOD QUESTION! Now here’s GOOD FACT. I keep my body active and I know you’re thinking….NO! Not another exercise that makes my body burn and ache leaving me with crappy or no results. Nope!!! Grab your bowling shoes and your bowling ball and let’s Bowl’em Away (those pounds).
Bowling is a fun sport that many people enjoy. My family and I love it so much that we bowl maybe three times a week. It’s a wonderful exercise for ANYONE!!! Did you know that you use almost every muscle in your body to bowl??? Here are a list of muscles that are used below.

Just about every major muscle group is involved in delivering a bowling ball:

The gastrocnemius (calf), hamstring and quadriceps muscle groups in the legs are involved in the four-step approach.

The triceps, forearm and latissimus dorsi (upper back) muscles thrust and support the ball during the pushaway, while the lats, deltoid (shoulder) and pectoral (upper chest) muscles are engaged during the armswing.

The abdominal muscles of the core, especially the obliques, are involved in stabilizing the upper body through the highest part of the backswing, as well as adding power to the release.

The biceps and pectorals, as well as the forearm and wrist muscles, power the ball through the release, and may even impart a sideways motion that increases the hook.

Last but not least, the cardiac muscle (heart) pumps faster to deliver additional oxygen to all these muscles, making bowling a very healthy activity for almost everyone.

  1. Hello
    I’m thinking about taking pro hormones, do you think this is good idea for advanced bodybuilder like me?
    Bodybuilders are satisfied with the results after prohormones cycles, just google for – 100% pure muscles without side effects
    – worth a try?

    • I think that the pro hormones are still some type of steroid once it enters into the body and natural results are always better! That’s just my opinion but I would try it out and see how it works …so sure..give it a try!
