The general rule of thumb is 10% of body weight to start with. If you are hurling the ball down, you may need to move to a heavier ball. If you are experiencing discomfort, then drop to a lighter ball.

Where should you aim when attempting to bowl a strike?

Bowlers aim for the "pocket." The "pocket" is the spot between the 1-3 pins if you are a right-handed bowler and the 1-2 pins if you are a left-handed bowler. Ideally, if you are a newer bowler and you throw your ball straight you would aim between the middle and the arrow directly right (if you are a right-handed bowler) or directly left (if you are a left-handed bowler). If one continues to bowl and becomes skilled enough to hook the ball then they can learn to adjust to throw at any arrow.
