It varys from person to person depending on your form and level of training. Most ametures use their arms, legs, back and core muscles.
An elite athlete minimizes the muscle use in their arm and focuses on the muscles in their wrist to generate rotation, and rely on gravity to gain momentum. An elite bowler uses all the stabilizing muscles related to balance, mostly their core, back, and almost all of your leg muscles.

How does wrist strengtheners wrist supports and gloves help you play bowling?

While one might not think of it, the wrist plays a very important role in how comfortable the grip of the bowling ball feels. When you grip anything the muscles in the wrist work to help. After bowling two or three games in a league or open bowling, and placing your fingers in the bowling ball and gripping it 30-50 times, the wrist can become tired and fatigued. A strong wrist and/or supports/gloves can help the wrist withstand the wear and tear gripping a bowling ball does to it, along with making the bowler feel more comfortable while bowling.
