Lately, my already-short slide step has become non-existent. It's gotten to the point where I just take a final step and stop, which is not my style and definately not what I'm going for. I've been trying to work on it using one-steps, adding steps, etc. but it seems once I try a full approach it goes back to this.

It isn't just the slide step, the whole approach looks really choppy to me. When I watch others bowl, or watch videos on here, there is a certain smoothness to the approach mine lacks. In this video I was actually trying things that 'felt' different. But, then I watch the videos and each approach looks exactly the same.

There are plenty of other problems here (poor release, not posting long enough, etc.), but does anyone have any tips for smoothing this footwork out? It doesn't seem like I can move on until I get this right.
