Wii Sports Warm-Ups, Part 3: Bowling

March 8, 2010

The third blog in the Wii Sports Warm-Ups series involves Wii Bowling and the muscles involved in the real-life version of the sport.  The seemingly fewer muscles and warm-ups required prior to bowling does not preclude the sport from any form of warm-ups, especially when athletic activity requires some warming up.

Wii Sports Warm-Ups, Part 3: BowlingPrior to playing a game or two of bowling, a person should warm up the muscles and joints in their throwing arm.  Recreational bowlers and glove-wearing seasoned bowlers alike should focus on warming up their wrist since much of the energy released when throwing a bowling ball goes through there.  Additionally, the bowler gathers energy during the follow through and approach to the foul line, so warming up the biceps and triceps is also necessary.


Biceps and triceps

Long-time bowlers can suffer from repetitive strain injuries (RSI), affecting the chest, shoulders, upper arms, and upper back.  The following exercise can help lessen the possibilities of such injuries.

Shoulder mobility exercises

On a side note, if you sit in front of a computer at work all day, or blog or Tweet all day, the aforementioned exercise is very useful for rejuvenating you during breaks.
