Hello,

being right-handed, my left leg is getting fatigued very quickly... is any
particular excercise for bowlers to fix up those muscles a bit?

TIA,
Ekkehard

Setting up billiard tables comes to mind. Haul a ton of table into a narrow
doorway a few times a day and both legs will have the same strength.

You could always haul some stones like an Egyptian ...

I do everything like an Egyptian. I do the least amount of work possible to get
the job done.

First, have someone knowledgeable make sure you're not doing something wrong
in your approach. Second, do some basic stretching exercises. (hard to tell
you how to do all this, not knowing if you are shaped like a pole, or a
bowling pin... :-) )

Second, an exercise called a thrust. Standing with both feet together, step
forward with your left foot and touch your right knee to the floor. Then
stand straight up bringing your left foot back. Repeat with the right foot
going forward.

Ten or fifteen times is a good start. Eventually you can get to 20 or 25,
then you can hold weights in your hands. Old balls work well for this.
