Not every practice session needs to be focused on physical skills. With the physical foundation already established, it helps to push the boundaries of your comfort zone by practicing in different areas of the lane.
When looking to expand your comfort zone, it’s important to make that the focus of your practice, without trying to change anything else. Try the following practice plan once you’ve warmed up:
- Spend 10 minutes targeting the first arrow, then 10 minutes on the second arrow, and then 10 minutes on the third arrow.
- Spend 10 minutes rotating among all three targets, with one shot on each.
- Bowl one game for score, picking one of the lines that isn’t in your typical comfort zone.
More advanced bowlers might use five or even six different arrows to test their skills, but for many bowlers, this three-arrow sequence will be enough to improve your ability to adapt to different conditions.
