Improve Your Bowling Skills with F. Chris Garcia – Tips for Beginners

Bowling is a fun sport that is suitable for levels of bowling skills and abilities. You can play competitively or go bowling with your friends and family just to have a good time. If you want to impress your friends and family, or you plan on competing in a competition soon, consider these next tips.

  • Every beginner bowler should attempt a few trial swings so that you are used to the motion. You don’t need to do this with a bowling bowl; you can do this empty handed. If you do have a ball, don’t release it, instead just go through the motions. You can develop focus and some rhythm by doing a little warming up.

  • If you are a beginner focus on using a lighter ball first. These balls are made for beginners and will help you improve your technique. If you can’t find a lighter ball, ask an employee of the alley, and they will be able to help you. You can start moving up in weight once you get more and more comfortable with your swing and the weight of the ball that you previously used.

  • Although it is a cliché, keeping “your eyes on the prize” sometimes works. The prize isn’t the middle pin, though. If you are right handed the prize should be the second arrow from the right-handed gutter. This arrow makes a straight line from your right shoulder to the front three pins.

F. Chris Garcia Explains How to Overcome Common Golfing Challenges

Golf is a very difficult sport to pick up. It requires a lot of body movement and muscle work that is surprising and also feels unnatural. Beginners find it difficult to learn at first and to become a good golfer requires years of practice and experience. Here are a few tips for beginner golfers who are finding themselves challenged by the difficulty of this sport.

  • The key to a good golf swing is starting your downswing with your hips. Your lower body should be starting the movement, and that movement should move to your upper body in one fluid motion. Most bad golf swings occur because the movement is starting in the upper body rather than the lower body.

  • The best way to practice golf is by going to a driving range. Before you attempt a course, you should have spent a lot of time at a driving range, perfecting your swing, and getting comfortable. Each session at the range should consist of you hitting 50 balls for at least half an hour. The time you spend at the range will help you considerably on the course.
  • The first course that you should attempt should be a par three course. Par three courses are a great way for you to learn about course management and allow you an opportunity to practice your short game. You will spend less time searching for balls on a par three course and more time working on your game.

  • Speed is very important in tennis. You need to be able to react quickly to your opponents shots and you therefore you need to be fast. The best way to improve your tennis quickness is by using a jump rope. Jump rope for about 15 or 20 minutes every other day and your speed, footwork, and coordination will improve significantly.
  • Stamina is more important than speed on the tennis court. You may able to get from one side of the court to the other quickly, but if you can’t keep this up for more than a few games, you won’t be able to compete in a full tennis match. Your stamina will increase either by playing more tennis, playing other sports, or going for runs frequently.

  • Always make sure that you have warmed up before you play and after you play. Stretch your arms and legs and lightly jog a couple of laps around the court. You should do the same thing at the end of a match. This decreases the chance of getting injured and loosens up your muscles, allowing you to be more active.
