Tips on Burning Calories Using a Bowling Ball!

Other than bowling for fun, did you know that you can burn a lot of calories and get into great shape by using your bowling ball? There’s a multitude of exercises you can do along with a sensible diet; you’ll be toning up in no time. Here are some excellent tips on how to make a few moves that will slim down your waistline while building muscle.

Get chiseled arms by holding the ball with two hands, slightly bending at the knee then raising the ball as high as you can. Don’t go past the chest for safety reasons. Also, you want the weight of the ball to work out your arm muscles. Do four reps of raising the ball 12 times. Watch out, sexy arms on the loose!

Next, sitting with your legs straight out in front of you, use your ball by twisting from side to side and keeping the ball in your hands. This same exercise is used with a kettlebell and will give you incredible abs in no time. Do four reps of 20 on each side.

In addition to working out your stomach muscles and arms, squats are easy with a bowling ball. Keeping the ball on the ground and bending at the knees squat down keeping legs open and using your weight evenly. This can be tricky for people who need to work on balance. Do as many squats with the ball staying grounded until your legs can’t do them any longer. Each week count and strive to do more than the previous week. Not only will this routine give you strong calves and thighs, but it will also help improve your game with more control.

After you work on your arms, legs, and abs, be sure to allow yourself a good 20-minute cardio activity such as running in place. This will give you the aerobic activity needed to burn the rest of the calories that are usually necessary after eating bowling alley fries!

Be sure to remember safety first. Prevent dropping the ball on your toes. Be sensible and use caution, but be sure to use a routine to keep those extra pounds off and you’ll be glad you did. On another note, be sure to check with your doctor before engaging in any exercise routine.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the lanes!
