Bowling can be a very physical sport, so the best thing to do is to use a few stretches to help warm up for bowling. If you do a variety of stretches, this can help prevent the possibility of getting a sprained muscle or tearing something. Even though you may not bowl professionally or in tournaments, you should still warm up before you start to bowl. Bowling can be fun, but it can also turn into something bad if you end up hurting yourself.
- Bowling warm ups include getting your arms prepared. You can hold the bowling ball in your arms and move your arms over your head and back down to your side. This can be done in a spiral-like fashion. Warm ups are just meant to get your juices flowing, so try and do this warm up slowly so that you do not end up spraining something during the warm up.
- Put your arms behind your back and interlock your fingers. Attempt to pull your arms over your head. This will help to give a good stretch and warm up through your biceps and arms.
- Do a few lunges to stretch out and warm up your leg muscles. You can start by placing one foot shoulder length in front of the other. Lean forward and bend down until your waist is at the same level as your knees. This will help to put the final touch on all of your bowling warm ups.
