2018 Official Forum Member Review - SuperSpeed Golf

Recommended Posts

Week 18 or 19 of training here for me now. Definitely appear to be stuck in a "range" of training numbers for the last 5 weeks since seeing a noticeable jump at that time. But, all things considered, although it's been tough it's kinda the fun part, knowing that these are the times alot of others may stop training due to lack of added progress after, what......almost 4 months now. So just gonna grind it out and see if there's more gains in the tank at some point down the road I guess

 

 

Suoerspeed told us that you need to hang there until the end of the new level 3 to preserve your gains.

 

I don’t know how that relates to the old protocols

So today was an ASD but I had the radar out for the dynamic warm up and I did this with the red club. 2 mph over my record with that club and that’s on the double step move. This was on a regular swing.

That's an awesome number, rev!

I just want to say that I find it extremely frustrating when your current weeks numbers aren't anywhere near your previous weeks numbers.  😞

I experienced a slight downturn after the first couple weeks as well. 

To update my progress: My back is finally starting to feel better, so I've resumed my full program this week. I still do not have a working radar -- I haven't been able to connect with the radar company to get a replacement LCD. I did take the device apart and thankfully the only thing broken is the screen.

I did get fitted for the Epic testing on Saturday. My numbers were consistent, if not slightly better, than what I had been seeing the past few weeks.

I have six more sessions left in the introduction protocol. The weather has improved enough that I can hit foam balls with 54 degree wedges. My Swing Caddie does a good job of reading swing speed in this case, but obviously the ball speed/smash factor is wrong.

I'm hoping to hit real balls this weekend and excited to see this put into play.

I have been working with Super Speed for about 8 weeks.

Have to say I am very impressed with how my speed has increased.

I have increased my speed by over 10mph. My goal is to get to 100 from 84mph

I agree with Mike, those weeks just happen. I was looking back over my numbers and saw a significant drop in all my dominant swings the last couple of weeks before completing the second protocol. I saw between a 5-8 mph drop right before testing my swing speed and a gain of over 4 mph in my driver speed.

It happens - you have to just push through it.

Well, I just put the Arrcos Smart Grips on to try for a few months and see how some data goes. Figure there's no lying in those numbers and it's time to see "what is what." Hopefully the distance numbers reflect the "feels" I'm getting. First trial of Arrcos will be this afternoon without driver however. Let the real distance gains (or not) shine through, nestea challenge!

@revkev. I know it happens and I really didn’t mean I as a negative. Expectations a so high and you want to see a new best but the number flashes up and it is slower than the previous. I creates the drive and goes back to one of my earlier comments about wanting to keep going. I keep wondering if I change my
Technique will I get better results or what if I do this when I swing will that be faster. I just can turn that analytical part of my brain off.

Exactly what I do.  I will make a swing that absolutely feels powerful and faster than the last swing and it's 5 mph slower.  What??  In my case I think that is my right (dominant) side taking over and that actually slows down my swing.  When I try to keep my right side out of it, faster!  

UPDATE:

If you guys remember, I went on a two week trip at the end of January and didn't take the SuperSpeed sticks.  I'm not sure if I would be any better off now if I had, because when I got home in early February, we had below freezing temps and 2 feet of snow.  I can only do the protocol outside, so until this week when the snow melted, I hadn't swung a SuperSpeed club or any club for that matter until Monday.  

I just finished my 3rd protocol session this week a few minutes ago; 68º and sunny!  I reverted back to the Level 2 protocol to compare my speeds to what they were in early January.  My speeds across all clubs are nearly the same, so I didn't really lose any speed over the 2 month layoff.  That's good news!!  What is very interesting is that with all clubs, my non-dominant LH swings were equal to or faster than my dominant RH swings.  I will say that these 3 sessions this week showed me that I am NOT in SuperSpeed training shape.  I'm more sore now than I was the first 14 weeks of training.  I can really feel it.  I guess that's the result of coming out of hibernation.

Next week I will restart Level 3 protocol.  I only have a week of data at Level 3 to compare with, so I will see if I can achieve similar results.

That’s awesome that you didn’t lose any of your speed gains. Being realistic I probably won’t be able to keep up with the 3x a week training this summer, but it’s great to hear you had a decent amount of time off and are still seeing the same speeds.

I was able to hit the course today after work and play. It was windy out and my irons decided to give me problems, but I do have a couple of shots I'm really proud of.

The first is the 11th hole at my course, I will admit I had the wind at my back and it was probably blowing at 15 mph. When I got to the ball and saw it was past the fairway bunker I was pumped! Screenshot_20190322-185901-01.jpeg
It's the longest drive I've had in a long time that didn't involve a cart path, 261 yards!

The second shot was on the par 5 18th, I hit a low drive into a left to right wind and possibly pulled it a bit, but it was still a great drive for me.

Now that I've seen what potential I have, I realize that I'm going to have to work on better contact on the face. Being a high handicapper, consistency is not my specialty. When I started SuperSpeed, a 230 yard drive was a great drive for me. Seeing that jump up 25-30 yards is really encouraging.

Nice progress in what is really a short period of time with a system that really doesn't take all that much of a commitment.

I agree that the progress is fantastic.  However, I think it's a big commitment!!  We started 6 months ago, 3 times a week.  The full program goes for 10 more months.  After I started, there were times when I wondered if it was worth it, but the results and the support from this group helped.  If I were doing this program on my own, I'm not sure I could finish it.  Now it's a matter of pride.  I'm the old guy, and I've got to see it through.

Working on getting home from Florida trip. Stuck in airport now.  Great on course progress. Was definitely hitting my driver further. I was about 20 yards longer than the guy who used to drive it the same distance as me last year. I got home in two on a par five I have played before that I never came close to getting on in two....it was wind aided as well as the one where I drove it pin high on 270 yard par four. Extra distance is a game changer.
