The inside-out swing has a setup somewhat toward center of the body, but not always. More importantly, the pushaway, or whatever someone calls it, moves toward the center of the body. For a right-handed bowler it would move to the left in front of the body. The swing is then forced to loop out around the body rather than straight back as in the traditional pendulum swing. As it loops out around the body, it redirects behind the back completing the backswing. The forward portion of the swing is again muscled not forward, but out to the right sending the ball from left to right. Although generally undesirable, this swing is best used when attempting to send the ball right off the hand.
