Welcome to the Biomechanical Cause and Effect in Tenpin Bowling course overview.

Since it is based 100% in how the body naturally works and draws extensively on biomechanics and physics, the DYDS biomechanically efficient system is unlike any physical game analysis or training model designed or implemented before.Most importantly, with the DYDS system, bowlers can improve more quickly and achieve a higher performance levels.Coaches can better understand cause and effect facilitating improvement more quickly.This is based on the fact that the system draws on how the body naturally works.Accordingly, the results are extremely effective.

The course illustrates concepts with many images of PBA players as well as self-designed video, background articles as well as new content written for the course to help foster the development of your knowledge, skill and understanding about the DYDS biomechanically efficient system, implementation as well as dealing with common errors in cause and effect.

To test your knowledge development, there are assessments in each section as well as a final examination.All of these assessments can be attempted an unlimited amount of times.

By completing the course, you will:

Learn how to more easily increase ball speed, rev rate, accuracy and balance with proven cause and effect sequences;

Develop an awareness of several X Factor cause and effect sequences which elite players do;

Understand that you have been lied to about what a good physical game looks like and what an elite physical game should REALLY be;

Learn that a pendulum swing is a myth;

Think of elite bowling as maximizing energy transfer from body to bowling ball;

Begin to see bowling as energy production associated with three forms of energy: potential, kinetic and elastic energy;

Comprehend how a bowler can produce significantly more energy transfer to the bowling ball with significantly less effort;

Understand effective cause and effect sequences of the physical game.Too often coaches and bowlers focus on the effects rather than causes.This is due to a misunderstanding of how the body works in bowling;

Learn why lateral trunk flexion (lateral spine tilt) is one of the most important elements of maximizing performance and how it is directly linked to improving footwork, swing, balance and release;

Learn to conceptualize the release and follow-through as four dimensional (4-D) in order to create more energy transfer leading to higher speeds and rev rates as well as increasing accuracy;

Learn the normal range of motion of parts of the body related to bowling as well as biomechanical measurements associated with these range of motion;

Begin to re-conceptualize what the foundation and movement of a good swing looks like and how to produce the best swing of your life;

Learn why a release to follow-through should be vertically down and horizontally long;

Learn how to use drills and a special training process to develop a player's biomechanical potential;

Learn what the natural position of the trail leg is and how it is a function of the trunk/torso angle in 3-D?

Develop an understanding about how the swing start direction, swing movement and release direction contribute to ball speed production.
