Found a unique way to exercise legs, especially thighs.

While my hand heals from carpal tunnel surgery, I'm not able to stretch out my mop and wring most of the water from it, so to keep the house's floors somewhat clean after sweeping them I lay down Clorox type bleach wipes and scrub them across the floor with my feet.

Didn't think much about it at first but the more I did it the more I felt it in my thighs. Forward and back and left to right. Gave me quite a leg workout and cleaned the floors pretty good, too. emoticon

Although this SP article is about alleviating knee pain, anything we do to strengthen our legs will help our bowling:

Keep strengthening those legs. Another easy one -- seated leg extensions:

Sounds like it would help loosen up arthritic knees before bowling.

In bowling it is important to have a deep knee bend with our sliding leg to keep our ball on target and to help with our hooks.

One way to develop strong legs at home if there is no access to a gym is to do knee bends, holding onto a chair back if needed for balance. Do both legs then one leg at a time, especially the sliding leg.

Another way is to do lunges. SP has videos showing various ways to do these.

Stay leg strong for a strong bowling game. -- Lou
