Ankle Stability in Bowling

Let’s face it: your bottom half is your better half. Your legs support all of your movements by staggering your weight throughout each step. The ankle, though, can take a lot of stress if movements aren’t performed appropriately. Try incorporating some exercises and stretches to strengthen and increase flexibility for reduced tightness in your ankles (and feet) in order to improve stability around the joint as well as prevent injuries. All of these can also be done at home! Remember, now that the weather is warming up: stay hydrated and don’t overwork your body!
