Body By Chad

This is a great opportunity to stay in shape (or get in shape) while you have some extra free time. The workout we did for High School Bowling can be done at home:) Also Chad Rinehart has put together a great program for you that can be done at home. Details from Chad….

Please read all of the following and look over the entire workout and pages. It will be best to look over each workout the day before so if you have questions I will have time to respond.

Below is a link to a workout that may be done at home using no equipment or minimal equipment. I plan on making the workout 4-6 weeks, currently week 1 is done. Each exercise has a hyperlink to a youtube video showing the exercise. Each part of the workout, outside of the sprints, has a timer link to an online timer that you may use to keep pace with the workout. If there is a day that you cannot get outside to do the sprints either substitute with another high speed movement or do the sprint portion the next day.

Most of the exercises can be done with only body weight. For those that cannot I encourage you to be creative. Use milk jugs, large cans or bottles, or a backpack filled with books. You may want to buy a jump rope for a cheap indoor exercise apparatus.

Lastly, I hope to incorporate a new software called teambuildr by the end of the week. After that point you will be able to download the app and I will send you a code that will have the workouts on your phone to use. We will use this app and will not be going back to using paper cards when we return to the GPEC.

Middle School Cancellation

Along with the recent school closing, the school district has asked that we cancel all youth activities until further notice.   

Since we only have 2 weeks remaining in the season, it is with a heavy heart that I must announce the cancellation of the remainder of our middle school season, effective immediately.  

I will be able to issue a partial refund for the remainder of our unused funds, $40 for each middle school bowler.  I will have this available at the bowling alley tomorrow night (Tuesday) from 6:30 – 8:30.  If you are unable to retrieve funds at that time please let me know and we can make arrangements for you to pick them up at another time.  

We will find some time once this epidemic has passed for individual lessons and group competitions along with the high school bowlers.

Performance Psychology

Bowling is one of the most mentally grueling sports.  You are standing all alone in front of your peers and family.  There is no-one to pass the ball to. You just have to perform each and every time you step on the approach.  

Now W-SR is giving you the chance to learn how to deal with that pressure, take the lid off what is holding you back, and realize your true potential.  Join presenter Mark Schwab in the Rada for a free series to unlock what you are truly capable of.  Details here
