Rather, this area is neglected, ignored or unrecognized as important. This secret weapon is how long you sleep. Research has revealed that extra prolonged sleep can improve athletic performance in a significant manner, while sleep deprivation is detrimental to performance.

Friday, 22 February 2008

ImageIn the March 2008 installment of my Slowinski at-large column, I share with readers how important quiet eye targeting techniques are to elite performance in sport.  The article begins with an overview of the research on quiet eye techniques' contribution to improving accuracy and consistency.   I conclude the article  with a 3-step process to improve targeting and accuracy.  This includes recommendations on how long to target and where to target.  I strongly recommend that readers use both the 3-Point Targeting system and Quiet Eye targeting process together.  You will find that these compliment each other well and will contribute to a significant improvement in your performance on the lanes.

Declines in Ten-Pin Bowling Performance with Advancing Age PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joe Slowinski   
Thursday, 07 February 2008
ImageA study published in the journal Age and Ageing, in October 2007, reveals that performance declines in bowling at an elite level are far less than other sports.  Specifically, over a 50 year period, an elite (professional and master) bowler’s performance will decline approximately 8%, far less than the norm of a 10% performance decline with each additional decade of a person's life with sports requiring significant cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength.  And, the research confirmed that elite bowlers can maintain their best performances through the age of 45 where performance declines are first seen.  This study demonstrates how important skill and technique are in the sport of bowling and that bowling is a sport that bowler’s can be competitive over a lifetime. Click to read more about this important study.
