Ok guys, week one session two is in the books. With the exception of the first three swings with the lightest club, I saw a slight improvement on how fast I was swinging. I think the whole I just got home from work thing slowed me down.

It was just slightly less awkward swinging on my non dominant side, I just really don't want to see video of it.

I'll be doing my next set Friday after work. I was hoping we wouldn't have to work, as I work four days at ten hours. Yay! Overtime. I really wish there was a sarcasm font. Then I'll get some range time on Saturday and hopefully play Sunday.

I was a little late to the start party due to being out of town and playing in a golf tourney yesterday. Got my first session in tonight and it went pretty well. Although I realized halfway through the warmup that I should have made a list of all the stretches.. I feel like I missed one..

Due to my schedule, I did my session in the evening, but I don't feel like it slowed me down. I should be able to get a morning session in once per week, so I will keep note if the time of day makes a big difference for me. My non-dominant swing speed is fairly decent as well, I guess all those days messing around left handed have helped! I was as close as a 1 mph difference in a couple of the sets (although my max for each side put my dominant swing ahead by 4 mph). My golf friends have sometimes joked that I should switch to playing left handed because of my horrible over-the-top move I have on my dominant side (which doesn't show up when I swing the wrong way). Maybe I'll have to revisit that depending on how comfortable I get swinging on the left!

When I swing the Skilz left handed, I can feel my right side pulling the club through, and it feels good.  It doesn't feel that way when I swing right handed, dominant side.  I've been working on it, but my left arm doesn't pull like my right arm does.  I feel that if I spent several months without playing golf, I could switch to left handed swing.  Why would I want to do that??  Every LH player here on the forum complains about OEMs not having left handed clubs!!

My second session this week was a repeat of the first session; about the same speeds both left and right.  Dominant side is slightly faster.  I did hit the grass once with the lightest club.  I don't seem to have much control with it, but it is the fastest club although not by much.

Great stage ones guys , I know some of you have been experiencing some DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) but are you hurting in unexpected places?
Thank you! The most unexpected soreness I have is in my lats and it's not so much from the swing, but from the warm-up. I think I got a little overzealous with the shoulder rolls. I'm also feeling a little soreness in my lower right back from not being used to shifting my weight and turning to that side.

So far no real soreness. I think it helped starting the program after playing 25 rounds this summer (which is a lot for me in Wisconsin). If I had started this in January I guarantee I would feel it more.

My soreness is exactly where I would expect it all on my left side. I will say that it’s hard to tell if it’s not as much from playing in super thick rough on Sunday - I had one shot out of that rough which really hurt.

Interesting to hear that some of us are close dominant to non-dominant sides - I’m 10 to 12 mph different.

Your non-dominant will speed up! It's been a while, but I have practiced left handed in the past. I used to help out at a community college golf class and I would work with the leftys! Got fairly decent at striking the ball left-handed, just never had the same control that I do on my right.

Well, being the oldest tester of the group, I always have pains.  I had been doing some of the exercises prior to playing for quite awhile (touching toes, arm circles), but not a set of exercises that targets many parts of the body one after the other.  However, I have a new pain that showed up after the first session in both hips.  I've never had an issues with my hips.  It didn't get any worse after the second session.  I'm liking the exercise routine; just need to get better with my balance.  I don't want to be a statistic... "Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!"

I may not be as old as you but I'm sure my body feels like it's 85.  Having a bad back & bad hip (trying to get the hip replaced this winter), really takes its toll on my workout routines.  But ....  that's what drugs are for afterwards.  So my pains are in the same spots they always are, nothing new there.  

The back-ass-wards swinging on the wrong side of the ball ... YIKES!  That is a sight that no one should see.  Mrs Nut watched me & said "you're going to break something swinging that way, WTH are you doing?"  I did see my swing speed jump to 103 mph though.  I was pleasantly surprised by that.  

Looking to do another session this evening when I get home from work, right before the hockey game!

I would love to have a 103 mph swing speed!!  Actually, my speed with all of the training clubs is not that much different.  Of course the lightest one is a little faster, but not by much.  I have a hard time controlling the lightest club.  Yes, I could break something, and it would be the radar unit!  I did have my wrong side of the ball swing speed equal my normal side of the ball swing speed once, I think with the middle club.

I did want to let everyone know that yesterday's soreness is gone. 

 

I'm still intrigued by the differences that we are experiencing in regards to initial results.  I'm sure a lot of that has to do with our swing types.  While I'm not at 20 percent faster with the lightest, green club, I'm significantly faster with it and there is a nice progression down until the Red, heavy, club is a couple of miles per hour faster than my driver SS.

I'm going to start paying attention to this more. Gained 10 to 15 yards playing today and my 3w gained more than that with a few shots just by swinging harder... to get more distance I'm intrigued by this

I was just going to say that I will be anxious to see when this translates over into increased yardage on the course.
Nicely done! Intriguing indeed

I am definitely hoping for increased distance on the course! I found my first training session very encouraging. I was able to get the heavy red club (which is 9% heavier than my driver) up to 102 mph. This is compared to my baseline driver SS average of 90.5 mph.. Sure, I won't be swinging my driver like the training club on the course, but I didn't think I had that type of speed in me!

It's really interesting, like you, my swing speed with the heaviest club was about 4 mph faster than my normal swing speed. I also saw some crazy differences in my non-dominant side from swing to swing. During the step change it would be like 76, 75, 85. I can't wait to see if anything changes with my driver, even if it's just 1-2 mph.

Your swing speed with the heaviest club will likely always be faster for a number of reasons. It may be heavier than your actual driver, but there are aerodynamics in play there, there's no club-head to push through the air. You'll also be less focused on pure path and with no ball in the way you focus on speed alone, not impact.

 

The non-dominant side should start to equalize, at the moment if you're not used to that your body is having to learn the basics of the motion entirely.

Work shut down production today because of supplier issues, so I took a trip to Kennesaw, GA to the PGA Superstore. I came home with a new set of irons. Bought a set of Cobra F8's thanks to all of the reviews during the Cobra Connect challenge. I'll have to get a few rounds in and modify what clubs I use for certain distances. I'm sure it'll change anyway due to the SuperSpeed training.
My golf partner will be receiving my old set of LCG's seeing as he likes them. rps20181004_144334.jpegrps20181004_144243.jpeg

New irons look great. I'm also in the market for a new set but am waiting to see if our SuperSpeed training has a big effect on my swing speed first. I'll probably get fit in December or January if Club Champion has their usual half off fitting sale.
