As I promised in another thread. Got my feet moving a little better, ball-on-body in my address position, more aggressive with my balance arm. Usually my videos are heavily edited to eliminate my spare shots and I'm honest about it, this video is all consecutive shots. Also with my shorts on you can see my spindly legs and that I do have some semblance of knee bend. Anyways...

I have to say, good adjustment on after the trip 9 and you end up leaving the ring 10 lol.

Funny because you went a pinch high (the one you run out to the left a little) and then as soon as you let the next one go I said, thats high too, he didn't adjust, then I saw you standing in the same spot again on the trip 9 and I was thinking, here is the end of the string, should have moved, and it crept high and you tripped it out, then you make the move and you leave something... Figures. Bowling at its best haha!

Looks good to me, think you are definitely stroking the ball well now.

Nice practice session, Rick. Your form, the ball's trajectory on the lane, and your results were all more consistent than I remember seeing in your other videos. I admire your work ethic, and happy to see it paying off for you.

Thanks fellas.

Sk8,you would have loved the last game. I made a 2-1 move at some point, went weak 10, weak 10, strike, weak 10. Said "Ok, I can take a hint", half-right and went off the sheet.

Question. Is my second step crossing over too much? Maybe I could reduce that a little and then let my 4th step cross a bit?

Thanks again...

You do want your fourth step to cross over a little too so that you can get your hips out of the way and so that you are pushing off with the inside of your right foot. Right now, because the fourth doesn't get in front of the left foot it does look like your push off comes a little bit over the tip of your toes as opposed to off your big toe side.

Not a huge deal but it definitely might help.
