Anatomical Drilling Technique
« on: March 04, 2015, 11:02:07 AM »
I saw this term on a FB page and was wondering what exactly it is?  Anyone drill their balls this way or have experience with it?  Wanted insight before I decided to spend the $12.95 that he is asking.  Thanks!!

Hard to tell by the pics.  Are you able to post side-by-side pics so we can see a difference and maybe explain what the difference is? 

I'm interested in this.  Does it help with hand pain?  I'm getting older and getting joint pain in the fingers. 

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this!

Nope, no offset thumb.  It's based on the anatomy of the hand and how the hand sits when it's open. 

It's my normal span but with different orientations on the pitches, it's a similar method to the CLT method for drilling the fingers.

Joe has documented the procedure well and it's really simple to follow, not to mention if you have any issues then just give him a quick message on Facebook and you should be away in no time (got back to me quite quickly when i asked him)/

If you're experiencing joint pains then i would seriously consider this, i used to have a bit of pain in the ring finger due to an ill fitting ball years ago which flares up every now but it seems to be fine after last night's set.

Would it be plugging the current thumb and redrilling or would it have to be fully plugged and everything layed out again?

you'd have to fully plug the ball.

In all sports, our goal is to continue to learn more about anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.  Accordingly, we still have a long way to go.  I have spent considerable time over the last year working around biomechanical concepts to help improve the physical game and now fitting and drilling.  To be honest, the sport of bowling is so far behind other sports in the areas of sport science.  We need to work hard to understand more.

The ADT is based on how the hand naturally moves anatomically.  So, the technique requires both an adjustment in fitting as well as specific drilling process to align the hand better to it's natural movement axes.  The results have been very positive.

I am giving the technique to all IBPSIA members for free.  Many bowlers and coaches are buying the newsletter as it articulates why this technique works so well and simultaneously reduces wrist tension and enhances performance (freer swing and improved ability to manipulate at release).

I apologize if I missed your e-mail.  I receive many questions daily on FB and by e-mail.  I do my best to respond quickly to each.  If you would forward it again, I can respond to your question.

"Testing of the ADT has seen the removal of pain for a bowler who had chronic pain while bowling each and every time he bowled for 2 years. With the fit change, the performance for this bowler also improved. He averaged over 240 in his national selection for games 3 - 7 in dual pattern Seoul and Mexico City. He won 2 of 6 blocks in the trials and earned a spot on his national team for the first time. Below is another bowler with a before and after showing how the hand sits on the ball better with the Anatomical Drilling Technique. Reduced tension in the wrist, a freer swing and an improved release."

""I can say that I noticed many differences:
a. more time up the back.
b. higher track, having a better ball read at the same time.
c. could transition to different releases, easier.
d. better aiming, when visualizing 3 spots on the lane, easier and repetitively.
e. swing was better on the way that I managed to get the ball higher and feel the 0 gravity spot at the highest point, more profoundly .
f. no wrist tension, of course, no fingers - thumb issue, at all.
g. The only "negative", if I could say, is that because of the difference in left lateral thumb pitch, (I had already 1/16 and now I have 9/16), I have nor room overall in thumb hole, but with 2 tapes now it's totally normal.
Other than that, everything is a pleasant surprise, for the new point of view and the different options given to our beloved sport.

I think you've done an excellent job and as a fellow coach I feel to congratulate you and deposit my admiration for the way you approach things and the help you give us to continue.""

Thanks for the reply Joe...I already send paid for this and look forward to reading more on this concept.  Much appreciated.

Quick question. When drilling the fingers do the grips go in line with the new 25 degree angle or the original center line with the layout?

I put a few holes in an old plastic ball.  The was just a "dry run" to go through the steps and get an idea of the feel.  Drilling was pretty straight forward.  No more difficult than a standard drill.  I can feel the the ball lays in my palm somewhat flatter.   The grip is comfortable.  Can't comment on strain/release yet. 
I think that I am sufficiently happy to give it a shot on one of the balls in my arsenal.  I may plug one up and redrill.

How can this be purchased if a person doesn't belong to Facebook?
