So the order of the lines from top to bottom goes: After-High Before-High. Isn't there supposed to be a point where my Before and After start getting closer together?1547913095278.jpeg

According to SuperSpeed the initial jump should become permanent in approximately 6-8 weeks.  Here is the chart they included in the MGS case study article from a few months ago.

Keep in mind these are just averages and it could be an additional time period for your speeds to really normalize.  It also depends on how warmed up you are.  Just like a round on the course your starting speed on hole 1 will be much slower than hole 9 if you don't hit the range and stretch a little before the first tee.

If I look at my SS chart I've followed the sample pattern that Bucky provided very closely - we wrote our review at the end of week 14 - I had a nice jump in the first 6 week period, stayed flat throughout the second 8 weeks until the very last 2 workouts where I had a noticeable 2 percent jump in SS - I've  plateaued again and quite frankly my last two workouts this week and range session yesterday were a bit slow - more like the end of level 1.  That's also very normal and discouraging.  Fortunately I know to expect this and will just plod right through.

I appreciate sirchunksalot wanting to see 120 - I hope he does - I don't see it in the cards for me - I'd be tickled pink if I could get the green to 115 at some point (that's my lightest stick) and get my SS averaged to be 100 on the radar which would be 96,97 on track man.  Right now I'm holding firm between 92-95 on the Voice Caddy - that is a huge jump from the 84 that I was at a year ago and 88 at the start of our SS training - I can't begin to tell you the difference it makes when you are driving between 225-235 when before it was 210-220.  Its huge!

Also Daisy's comments to sirchunks are a huge deal - I think that may have been lost on us a bit throughout the training - those last three swings with the lightest club are the money balls - they are supposed to be the fastest ones.  Normally they are for me.  Today they were not - I chalk that up to being tired.  I don't feel tired but I hit a ton of balls on the range yesterday so I'm golf tired.  I'm playing tomorrow and am going to do a workout Monday so that I get the "extra" day off between that workout and the one of Thursday.

Yeah I've been trying to stay consistent with my warmup. I do a 5 min walk on the treadmill then I do the superspeed warmup. Week 4 I had what I'm guessing was an outlier swing where I got it close to my ending number but the trend line doesn't recognize it. Maybe week 9 wil be my jump week .

@MikeLambert, keep up the great work! Those driver swing speeds without a ball are awesome! I don't think you'll have any problem reaching your target of 90 mph when there's a ball there. Everything I've heard and read has said that you're actually slower when swinging without a ball. I'm really curious to see where you're at.

Thanks @sirchunksalot - much appreciated!

I think you are right about not having a problem getting to 90 with a ball there...I played a round of indoor golf yesterday, and the drives I hit well off the tee registered between 190 and 195 yards, which looks like around 90 mph on the club head speed graph that came with the radar.  My swing is a bit all over the place, but that's OK for now since I'm just concentrating on speed.

I figure there are 3 things I need to do to improve my driving:  (1) speed, which I'm doing here, (2) hitting the ball on the sweet spot, and (3) hit the ball more on the upswing to get a higher launch angle.  I'll be able to start working on 2 and 3 in the spring, and maybe 2 or 3 rounds a month of indoor simulated golf over the next 2 months or so will help a little).  My birthday is in March and I can order, uh...I mean ask my wife to get me a SC200 Voice Caddy (and a couple of cans of Dr Scholl's spray for my driver) just in time to be able to start getting outside.  I noticed where @revkev mentioned he was getting around 210 - 220 yds at about 88 mph, so makes me think that if I can improve in all three of those areas, I should be able to get into that neighborhood if I work at it.

I'm sure you'll get there.  I try to keep my own numbers in perspective - this is a 70 week program, so the initial day-to-day ups and downs don't seem too bad on a slow day.

Started week 17 today and almost waited when I saw this:
20190120_154849-01.jpeg
The starting temperature was 31 degrees, which is right at the high for today. I did dress well for the occasion, so well that I felt like an onion or parfait depending on whether you're asking Shrek or Donkey. Layers. I actually broke a pretty good sweat despite the cooler weather.

My speeds were good today with highs of 113, 109, and 105 dominant and 108, 108, 99 non dominant.

20190120_151934-01.jpeg

@MikeLambert, it sounds like you had a good indoor session today, keep it up. I feel you on the launch angle, I averaged 197 my last round with a SS of 93 mph due to hitting the ball high. It's something I'll also work on once the weather is nicer. Plus, I'm trying to talk the better half into a new driver, I'm thinking G400 or F9. Mine's just not cutting it anymore.

Chilly breezy day today. Lots of layers. I had no drives under 210 even into the wind and ripped one 264. Down wind? Yes but it was wet, very wet. So that was mostly carry. Longest drive without hitting a cart path or lots or roll in a long time.

That's awesome Rev! Having none under 210 is a great showing, especially having to hit into the wind. That 264...nice.

It’s currently 0 degrees here with a wind chill of -12. I’m trying to think of nice words to say but it is extremely difficult right now. The most I can muster is “Nice job Rev”.

Nice Rev! I'd love to pick these up come spring time when I have time and at least some warmer temperatures. Right now as I look over it's -6. We will be lucky to hit 10 today.

Looking outside this morning and seeing the sun, it looks like a great day to hit the course.

Then, looking at the weather channel and realizing it's 17 degrees with a wind chill of 4, that's a no go. It's not northern cold, but here in the south it's pretty chilly. Guess I'll have to spend my day off looking at golf shops.

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! 🙃

I’m curious as to whether or not anyone has done a workout without the radar.

I don’t know why I’m curious about but I am. Going to use the gym at work for today’s workout

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.

@Kegger, I'm looking forward to hearing your review.
@revkev, I haven't done one without the radar. I came close, fortunately Amazon has two day shipping with Prime and my replacement showed up on time. If it had not, I would have listened to the advice you gave and done the workout.

Nice to have a gym at your disposal but note to self - put a mat down when doing these workouts. I’ve done an indoor workout at a hotel fitness center and a couple at the club fitness center.

The floor is slippery enough that traction was tough - my speed was a little down because of that. It shows you how important the ground really is to speed.

OK, just finished level 1:

2019-01-18_9-03-04.jpg.53642f757926cb4e0c64928d7af385f8.jpg

Those driver swings were without actually hitting a ball (but then again, so was the initial 84).  It'll be interesting to see how that translates to real life, I imagine I'll have to remind myself to swing fast, not to mention practice to maintain control.  If that translates to about 90, I'll be very happy.  My goal when I started was to get to around 90 when I can start playing again in early to mid April, it seems like I'm about there already.  On to phase 2 to start to lock in these gains!

Good job!!   Your Level 1 numbers look almost exactly like mine!!

Taking a break from the protocol this week and next.  Here in Phoenix it was 67º today after 75º yesterday.  I would love to see what my speeds would be in this warm weather, but I wasn't going to haul the clubs with me on the airplane.

I'm out of commission for this week as well.  Visiting my brother who is hospitalized.  Even though I'll be down in Florida, I'm not going to be able to break away.  I'll pick things up next week.  (A little iffy as far as my flight taking off from Milwaukee tomorrow evening, as they're expecting a new round of snow.)

For you guys doing the training inside what kind of shoes are you using? I have tried a pair of Nikes and New Balances but the repeated motion is making the sole come off on both. Tried a pair of golf shoes on a rug and had the same problem as rev with not getting good traction, took about 3-5 mph off.

I always use my workout shoes for the SuperSpeed training (Nike Metcon 4).  I wouldn't recommend using them as running shoes, but they've been great for pretty much every other type of exercise.

I have sketcher sneakers that I use indoors - outdoors I use an older pair of golf shoes. I’ve not had attraction issue in fitness centers with mats in them - but the bare gym floor was a bit issue yesterday afternoon. I may try the gym again on Thursday (we are supposed to have rain), if I do I will take down a mat to stand on.

I just use a pair of old Nike sneakers, cross-trainers of some sort.  Since I'm doing the training in the garage, I haven't had any issues with slipping, and also haven't had any trouble with the soles coming loose.  Maybe that means I'm not swinging hard enough 😉
