Here is a trick to strengthen our forearms a professional wrestling suggested:

Hold a dumbbell straight out in front of you until your arm begins to shake from the weight, then relax and lower the arm. Repeat throughout the day or workout.

The weight does not need to be heavy, even a 1 or 3-pound one will do, or more depending on your strength level.

Whatever weight bowling ball we use, it is important to have a strong wrist and forearm (but not like Popeye after eating spinach emoticon ). Too many bowlers, in particular women bowlers, deliver their ball with their wrist bent backwards. This is a weak delivery and also causes inaccuracy.

Here a couple of easy ways to build strength in your wrist and forearm:

1. Squeezing a ball, whether rubber, a tennis ball, etc., works both the wrist and forearm.

2. Wrist curls using a dumbbell or even a can of food. Hold it lightly in your hand, letting it rest on your fingers. Lower your wrist so you're holding the item on your fingers, then slowly raise your hand back up to where your wrist is straight. Repeat, trying to build up the number of repetitions.

These two exercises can be done throughout the day, at work, watching TV, or even while on the computer.

Sometimes, a wrist stabilizer glove (wrist brace) helps. Their are a variety of them available online and at local pro shops where you can try them on and get the shop's operator's opinion on whether one or another will help your game.

Hope these tips help. -- Lou
