I am sitting here looking at the 2001 edition and it has everything you need to get started on a Weight Training
program spcifically for bowling.
For instance, as I look at Seated Chest Press, it has a picture of the muscles that it trains, and a picture of what the machine might look like (each manufacturers model might look slightly different). It then gives a detailed explaination about how to perform the seated chest press, from body position, to performing the exercise. It even gives you notes about things to watch for while using the apparatus.
What else is there? It is not about stretching, it is not about diet, it is not about bowling drills, it is about Weight Training
, and it covers that well.
Again, I do not find that lacking.....And if you have any questions about any of the exercises, Dr Jeff Briggs will answer any of your questions about it. I do not think you can say that about any other sport training books for bowling.
Remember, while you are at an exercise machine you should consult one of the Fitness Center personnel to insure that you have the machine setup properly. One of the worse things you can do while training with weights is not having the apparatus setup for your physical characteristics.
