There are good health reasons to want to be fit and strong.

But, from a stroker's perspective, the goal in bowling is not to have the strongest release, just a strong enough release. There are no extra points for amount of revolutions, boards crossed, miles per hour, or excessive entry angle. Since bowling is a sport that requires both power and precision, there is a point of diminishing returns when it comes to generating power.

Remember the more moving parts, the more energy expended, the greater the challenge repeating shots, and the greater risk of injury. In my own experience, I know that I can switch from 4 to 5 steps, start farther back on the approach, allow my backswing to go over my head, and cup and cock my wrist to add speed and power to my release. The result in most cases is not higher scores, just an endless stream of ringing 7 pins, along with more wear and tear on the body.

At scratch tournaments, I often see the power players losing steam in the later games, while I continue to let gravity do its thing. It reminds me of a video I saw recently of big cats and their hunting strategy. The reason they sneak up on their prey is because if they don't catch them within 4 seconds, they cannot keep up with them in a long chase. They have great power, but little endurance.

As always, I will continue to enjoy watching the power players with their dynamic style, but for my own game, I plan to stick with stroking the ball. I am inspired by the successful careers of strokers Earl Anthony, Walter Ray Williams, and Guiness World Record holder, Paeng Nepomuceno.
