  1. I fell off the training wagon the last few weeks and, after talking with Daisy, have made the decision to restart my Level 3 training. We also had a good conversation about setting goals and she has challenged me to increase my peak training speeds (which for me came mostly at the end of the first 6 weeks) by an additional 5 mph. I also decided to set a goal to increase my average driver speed by the same 5 mph over the course of the Level 3 training. This would bring my speed to just over 101 mph if achieved. I've seen individual driver swings as high as 103, so I am hopeful that I have some extra untapped speed potential just waiting to burst through... My goals for each club for level 3 are: Green: 130 Right / 113 Left Blue: 121 Right / 109 Left Red: 118 Right / 108 Left These speeds are a little intimidating if I'm being honest... Because I had a drop off in training speeds during my level 2, these goals are 10 mph+ higher than my ending speeds at the 14th week! I am hoping that this drop was largely due to the muddy ground and that my speeds will bounce back as the ground firms up.
  2. Yup! I was right behind him on the 6th tee when he was doing the drill with his driver.. He has some impressive speed with the rebound! The speed sticks have definitely made a difference in his game. Everyone has been commenting on how fast he's swinging the driver now.
  3. I think there is going to come a time where we all reach a maximum increase for our training club swings. I don't really see this as an issue though. As long as our training swings are still faster than our driver and we are still gaining driver swing speed, does it really matter if we aren't seeing a big increase in the maximum training club swings? We are swinging our drivers on the course, not the training clubs, so I don't see a reason to over emphasize these numbers. Now that the Stage 2 reviews are done, I'm wondering if I just want to move towards mainly tracking driver speed and cutting back on tracking the training clubs.
  4. I never thought too much about the seasonal aspect of it. In California, this is the time of the year that the courses are at their softest. I actually had a ball plug in the fairway my last time out! I don't normally see a lot of run out on my drives, but the soft conditions could still be an additional reason I don't feel like I'm gaining distance. I wish I had your Swing Caddie so I could better estimate my yardages on the range! I'm playing Saturday so I may try ramping up my swing speed on the course like you're suggesting and see how it is.
  5. Not a full workout, but since I have switched from doing the kneeling swings to the modified swings (feet together and swing horizontal), I am not able to use the radar since I am swinging so far above the unit. As we continue on into the 3rd protocol and beyond, I may throw in full workouts without the radar, or at least without writing down numbers, to speed up the process.
  6. Just finished up my final week of the Level 2 training protocols. Better late than never I suppose! Should have my Stage 2 review finalized and up as soon as I can make it out to the range to measure my current driver speed. Sorry for making you all wait an extra couple weeks! I hope the wait will be worth it!
  7. I stop just long enough to write down my numbers and I only write down numbers when I'm switching clubs. So I will take both right and left handed swings, stop write down both maximums, then move onto the next club and/or exercise. Even with no resting, I still find that my final swings with the lightest club are still my fastest throughout the session.
  8. Don't forget that we are still in the plateau stage. I imagine those who didn't gain any speed will just see their jump during the level 3 protocol. Daisy seemed more surprised with the people who were seeing their jumps early. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. I came to the same conclusion as Kenny early on in my training. Here is a snipped of the owners manual: "8. The display will flash if a duplicate of the previous speed is measured. It returns to stationary if a third identical speed is measured, etc."

  11. I wouldn't worry about the step through or non dominant swings too much. They'll get better with time. And just for reference, I am similar to you in that I very rarely get a step through swing that is faster than my regular swing. My maximum speeds almost always come from a regular swing. For the last step, we always end with 3 swings, dominant side, with our lightest club only. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Week 8,9,10: It has been a while since my last check-in.. December has been a crazy month with finals at school and deadlines at work. And to top it off, my lower back has not been very fond of the kneeling swings which further compounded my ability to stay on track with the workouts. What it all amounts to is that I have fallen a little further behind from the initial air quality delay I had about a month ago. I am going to do my best to ensure I have no further setbacks and fall no further behind the group than I have already. Touching briefly on the kneeling swings.. I was getting through one or two workout sessions at a time without the kneeling swings causing any problems, but I have had a few instances where my lower back disagrees with the swings and I am left with back pain for 3-4 days afterwards. Because of this, I have abandoned the kneeling swings completely and have gone fully to the modified swing (standing feet together and swinging near horizontal). Fortunately, even with my sporadic workouts and back pain over the past month, I am still maintaining my speeds pretty well and have even gained an additional 1.5 mph average on my driver. I have not seen maximums as high as my last week of the first protocol, but I have also been swinging with an extra layer on and my footing is not as stable as it was a month ago (I’ve been tearing up the lawn pretty good!). Here are the numbers from the last few weeks:
  13. Week 7: In case you missed my previous post, due to the unhealthy air from the California wildfires, my SuperSpeed training had to be put on hold. The air is breathable again, and I finally finished my 7th week (a week behind the rest). With the 7th week comes the start of our next protocol level which includes kneeling swings. The kneeling swings are tough! After my first session, my back was rather sore. For my other sessions, I had to rely on the “modified” swing for the kneeling position (standing swing with feet together) due to the recent rainy weather. I just received my Stability Pro mat from SuperSpeed today, so hopefully I can continue with the kneeling swings rain or shine moving forward! As with the others, my maximum speeds have dropped, but I’m sure much of this is due to the increase in number of swings per session.
