    Started out kind of slow but I improved 30 pins over my first game. I even picked up my first mark which was a big deal. The videos are split up into two parts so feel free to watch and comment are always appreciated.

    How difficult is it for you to bend or twist at the waist?.....is there a maintaining balance issue involved with your prosthetic legs?
    Is walking and taking steps hard enough on their own at this point....so forget about any bending or twisting at the waist?

    Maybe start your walking forward motion a few steps back....go back as far as possible....to maybe help you
    with generating a little more speed/force/forward motion that can be transferred through you and to the ball as you
    are releasing it forward.
    I'm not sure about how much force you are generating with just your shortened arms doing the pushing.
    It's bowling ...go for broke....give it some controlled power and speed.

    There has to be a way for you to develop some sort of a smoother release of the ball.
    Do you toss the ball mostly with using power from your right arm?..using the left arm to basically keep
    the ball in line with your right(throwing) arm?
    There has to be a way for you to more or less go for broke and develop a way of throwing the ball
    with more power off just your right arm....using your left arm basically as a guide to keep the ball
    in line with your right arm.
    You might drop ore than a few balls in trying to develop the feel for such a technique...but I am sure that
    with practice over time....you'd get the feel for it and it might become much easier for you and the idea
    of dropping a ball doing that sort of thing won't happen anymore.
    It would be more of a natural feel sort of technique to be developed...over time it would become
    easier and more of a perfected movement.
    Developing a feel for this could easily be practiced at home over and over again until it becomes perfected.

    I don't know.....just some ideas from watching you throw the ball.

    This may sound crazy........but have you tried or considered moving up toward the line while backwards?

    Can you even move safely backwards?....walking backwards.
    ...and by safely I mean without falling down/losing balance etc.

    I could see you walking up to the line somehow backwards..back to the lane/pins....and then counting steps to
    the line...so you'd know the timing and spacing involved....and then maybe somehow turning just a bit
    near the line to maybe fire off the ball down the lane from maybe some sort of a developed and
    practiced side toss.

    Maybe you could do something similar but only turned 90 degrees to the lane...and still firing
    the ball off with some sort of a side toss.

    I'm just thinking that a toss from the side might be something better for you....as far as power, speed and aiming etc.

    Backing up to the line and turning to use a side toss might help to develop more power from just the turning motion.

    *IF* you could even manage to make a move like that at this point.

    It sounds a bit nutty....and it might involve quite a bit of trial and failure/practice......but it might work pretty
    good for you.

    I'm just tossing out ideas here.

    Keep it up Winst and I'll make sure you can't "bend or twist". ;)

    Great video Bob. While your bowling is inspiring, the sounds of your family sharing in your accomplishment is heart warming. Congratulations on being awesome. It really doesn't matter, except to you probably, but you seem to be getting better, good luck.

    Christ at this Winst guy. I used to bowl..for FUN...and there was a guy there like Winst...fucking filming me as I took my turn...hiding behind a column to watch my technique

    I was their handicap and we were NOT playing for money...it was supposed to be just for fun

    I ended up quitting the league because of a guy like Winst

    So I say..fuck you @Winst. And kudos to you @Bobbowl for getting yourself back to doing what you love
