8 Reasons you’re not bowling faster

Uncategorized May 25, 2020

Trained all winter but still not feeling you’ve put on any pace?


Make sure you’re not making one of these common mistakes (in no particular order)



1) Lack of motor control


A big reason for not putting on pace


If the body isn’t moving how it should then its very hard to transfer power and pace through the body into the ball


Could be a stability or mobility issue


Find the driver for dysfunction and get it fixed and see great things start to happen in your bowling



2) Just doing strength


You might be feeling strong as an ox but if you have just been doing all strength then its gonna be tough just to bowl faster


Just strength doesn’t equate to improved pace



3) Not strong enough


Now don’t get this twisted


You need to be strong


People get the wrong idea when we say don’t just do strength


Its massively important to be strong, you need to be strong


If you haven’t got strength its hard to convert to power and pace, so make sure you don’t skip the strength phase



4) Lack of specific training


Going hand in hand with strength, if you are not doing specific training for fast bowling then its gonna be very hard to gain the pace brother


Do you know your bowling classification using Steffs’ pioneering knee or hip dom ground breaking work, or if youre static or spring

5) Poor warm up


You can’t just go straight in and start to bowl fast


Proper prep and warm up is absolutely vital


Follow our S-RAMP protocol pre bowl to get the body in the right state to be able to bowl full throttle (available in the inner circle)



6) Poor nutrition


Big area that gets overlooked


Put rubbish into your body and perform the same


Nourish your body with goodness and it will perform a lot better and help you


Hydration is crucial to this as well



7) Poor recovery


You’re smashing the gym and training but then getting 2 hours sleep a night, playing on phone and laptop till all hours and not doing your soft tissue work and mobility


Sure fire way to get injured and not bowl quicker

8) Not following a program


Like trying to put some flat pack furniture together without the instructions


You can see all the tools there but can’t put it together and look like it does on the box


Not following a specific plan to improve your pace or any aspect of your game will ultimately lead to frustration and not getting everything you can out of yourself


Give yourself the best chance


And maximise your full potential
