So...Had disaster strike tonight. I was out doing my drills and hit my radar. I've had issues with it not recording my speed and staying on one speed. If this happens, I'll usually swing one handed in front of the radar to reset it to something like 48 mph then continue. I don't think I was far enough back and the radar went flying, into the side of my car. No damage to the car, but the radar is done. I feel like such an idiot. Looks like I'll be buying a new one. rps20181211_190556.jpeg

I may give it a try one of these days.
I am thinking about how I am going to complete my sessions over Christmas.  We will be traveling for 4 days; no place to do it indoors; and likely rain every day.

@sirchunksalot hey Jason, just sent you an email as well but figured I would post for the others to see as well. The owner of the radar company has been great at fixing any damaged radars, even those that looked like they had no chance at fixing. Anyone who has an issue send an email to adilz@cinci.rr.com and he will often fix it for no charge or a minimal fee.

I wonder what kind of damage I can do inside??

Yeah, I would but the hotel we stay at doesn't have a workout room.  We're cheap.  I make a trip to see dad about every 4-6 weeks and can't afford the nicer hotels.  I will take the sticks and hopefully the weather will cooperate.

Been kicking myself all night about it. I'm going to chalk this up to lesson learned and make sure I don't come that close to the next one.

Don’t sweat it - any one of us could have done this. I’ve come close for sure. It was bound to happen.

Yes, it was bound to happen... I always thought it would be me.

Either it's broken, or it was upside down when it hit the side of your car at 36 mph 😉

Level 2 week 4 is in the books. Here are the numbers:

Dominant, non-Dominant
Green 109,104
Blue 104, 100
Red 103, 92

Nothing really remarkable to report. I’m crazy busy with work so it’s hard to fit workouts in. Next week will be worse and then it settles down again.

I had two bad weather workouts, one in the cold (Florida cold - around 50) and the other in the rain:

IMG_1476.JPG

The baggie over the radar worked fine but I did chew up the back yard a bit.

I know we are not supposed to but I’m curious as to whether or not anyone else has tried workouts on back to back days. Maybe someone from the SuperSpeed team will weigh in as to whether that’s preferable or having a two workout week. I’m trying to map next week out. I think that I can do a go through the motions workout between church Sunday and the 4 PM Christmas Service that I’m doing at a local nursing home - I think.

Three more sermons left to write plus two other opportunities where I will ad lib and I’m done - 10 days to go.

Rev, I saw the picture first without the description, and my first thought was, "Oh no, another radar bit the dust!" 🙂

I've done back-to-back workouts before, when scheduling demanded it. Typically, I've ended up going early the first day, then afternoon the second day, just to space them out a bit. Can't say that I saw any ill effects.

I've also done back to back workouts.  I think it was a bigger deal when we first started and weren't used to the training yet.  At this point I think doing two straight days would be better overall than completely skipping a workout.

This is simply a training issue and it's something sports people and athletes have to deal with.
As @02uwmadgrad has said, this would have been more detrimental early in your training.
Superspeed golf state that the main aim of this training is to build not only the muscle based practice, but the psychology of swinging fast.

Personally, I would say you're better off doing back-to-back than missing a session out of the week, but what you may want to do if you need to is to simply do fewer reps in the second workout if that helps you to swing faster. If you ache at all then focus on fewer swings that are at your peak speed rather than "go[ing] through the motions" as you put it. I would suggest that a casual, slow set purely for the purposes of volume would be detrimental really, where 2-3 reps at full speed would be better than nothing.

The core is always to think about what you are trying to train (mind as much as muscles) and what your aim is (speed) and focus on that, 2 full-speed reps is better than no exercise, which is also better than "exercise" which tells your body it's okay to swing slow if that's what you need to do today.
So to clarify, my suggestion would be to do back-to-back if you can, but only if you can hit full speed and if necessary reduce the reps you do to do so. If you don't feel you can swing fast at all on the second day, it's better to skip than to swing slow.

Another week in the books here. I'd characterize as a week of consolidating gains:

image.png

That said, I had a highlight worth mentioning. I love those last three swings, where you challenge yourself to go all out and see what you can hit. I'd been swinging really well today, and so I got to the last three and really wanted to grab a 130 average for the first time.

First swing: 133. Awesome.

Second swing: 127. OK, now I've got some work.

Third swing: 134! Yes! That's a really good feeling to have a target and hit it like that.

At the risk of sounding like the jerk who asks whether you inhale or exhale at impact (truly not my intention here): do you do your protocols with or without imagining a ball in front of you?

Hey All -

This is my first post on MyGolfSpy, just wanted to say I'm jumping on board the SuperSpeed train thanks to what you guys are doing.

I'm 56, just start playing golf spring of 2016, so as you can imagine, pretty rough around the edges. Get out generally every Saturday from mid April to late October (live in Mass, so kinda cold the rest of the year) with a regular foursome.

Got an email early last week from Practical Golf, they are offering a discount on the SuperSpeed equipment, and someone has posted a link to this forum thread, which I read through last week and have been following ever since.  I actually bought the system late last spring (based on a Practical Golf recommendation and a couple of Amazon gift cards I had lying around), but didn't get very far due to a combination of elbow tendinitis and laziness.  After seeing all the progress here, I just finished week one and am excited to continue through the winter.  I actually started a weigh training program mid October, partly to help improve my golf swing speed, but also general strength - I'm not a big guy, about 5' 8" 165 lbs, and sometimes it felt like I was swinging through molasses the last few rounds this fall.  Doing all barbell exercises for now, progressively adding weight, and it's definitely helped with getting start on the SS protocol, I haven't felt any soreness at all.

My initial driver speed was 84 mph, if I'm swinging 90 or better when I play my first round in April, I'll be really happy...90 mph - 92 mph seems like a reasonable expectation based on what I've read here and on the SS website.  Managed a 104 and 107 on the last two normal swings at the end of the protocol this morning, so heading in the right direction.

Looking forward to continuing to follow everyone's progress, and I'll let you know how I'm doing at the end of level 1.  Just ordered the pad so I'll be ready to go with the kneeling swings when I get there.

- Mike

Personally, I don't imagine a ball in front of me. I will try to pick a spot and swing over it, though. As for your last three swings, that's awesome!
