Okay, so I've been bowling seriously for a little while now, and I've gotten over quite a few problems, from hideous timing, to arm pains, to hooking with a plastic ball. I spent ages trying to learn to "stroke" the ball instead of cranking it. My uncle who just happens to be an amazing bowler, asked me, "Why the **** are you trying to do that if it isn't natural?" he's a cranker, and a good, consistent one. I replied, inquisitively, "I've been told by a lot of people that cranking is bad.". To which he philosiphically replied, "If it isn't natural, don't do it. Now let me teach you consistency." And he did, I'm throwing better, my consistency is way better, and my body doesn't hurt so much. Now, the point of this long winding tale, should I just do what's natural but minimise on the damage, or should I try and get rid of the habit?
