Fitness Exercises for Bowlers
SOMERTON & DISTRICT BOWLS CLUB
Bowls England have published three workout videos specifically targeted at bowlers, to enable them to stay fit and healthy whilst staying home during the current coronavirus restrictions.
The workouts are intended to keep you fit and improve the flexibility, balance and strength that you need to play bowls safely, as this can decline rapidly through inactivity.
The three workouts vary in intensity and range from an introduction level, suitable for all ages and abilities, that focuses on balance, flexibility and core strength, to a more advanced full body workout for the more physically able and a high intensity cardio workout for those who want even more.
Workout 1 (Introduction for all ages and abilities)
Focusing on balance, flexibility and core strength.
Equipment required: Sturdy chair and a set of bowls.
Workout 2 (Advanced full body workout)
Focusing on building strength and balance and targeting core.
Equipment required: An exercise/yoga/camping mat and a set of bowls.
Workout 3 (Advanced fitness)
Features an advanced high intensity 10-minute cardio workout to increase cardio fitness.
The three workout sessions are available to view on Bowls England’s YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjtPZ9KqcGZA1L0fHqxfMeg/videos?view_as=subscriber
