Great job to everyone who has been doing the training! If you have any questions feel free to email us at info@superspeedgolf.com

We are in the golfing season now! If you were wondering how to maintain your current speed gain without advancing through the protocols just yet, you can perform our level 1 protocol once per week. Through testing we have found this to be enough to maintain the neurological reaction speed reset. 

By doing this you can prolong your plateau phases thus to prevent inconsistencies in speed and distance on the course throughout your competitive season. When you have 3 weeks break you can get back to training and pick up where you left off, once the 3 week break is up you can go back to the "maintenance protocol".

Everyone eventually will hit their maximum speed predominantly due to genetics. But there are ways in which you could further advance your speed by improving how your body moves. We highly recommend getting physically assessed by a TPI Certified expert near you to further advance your speed gains while using SuperSpeed!

Thanks for the suggestion!  Do you maintain a list or know if there is there a way to search on the SS website for TPI certified trainers that know the SuperSpeed program?  I was poking around the site, but didn't see anything (which could just be me missing it).

I just saw on Instagram that the new protocols have been posted to their website.

Also, thank you @SuperSpeed Golf for the information on what to do on a week where the full schedule of training isn't feasible.

@MikeLambert, keep up the good work! Hopefully you'll be able to hit the course soon and make your buddies jaws drop.

@superspeed this is great info - thank you very much. It’s very tough to fit in three workouts and practice, play this time of year.

I can get through the rest of April maintaining, then advance in May June before I have the busiest July imaginable - I’ve got two conferences that I’m playing a leadership role at.

Had a fitting for the Cobra Connect challenge today. Thanks to the SuperSpeed training I’m going from stiff flex shafts in my driver and 3 wood up to X flex. I guess that’s the one “downside” to this program; you may need to get new clubs.

It’s not so down for you - it’s going to be more than a grand for me at a time when we ain’t got a grand on hand. :(

So I’m watching “Live from the Masters” and they are showing Phil warming up while discussing his increased Swing Speed. He’s got his SuperdSpeed sticks in the bag but they never referenced them, at least not while I was watching.

I took a trip to the driving range today to dial in the Epic Flash Sub Zero and decided that since it's been two weeks since I finished the level three protocol to do a swing speed test.

It started out as pretty much a disappointment, I did see a high of 99 mph, but was seeing a lot in the 90-92 mph range. I decided to take a break, hit some irons, and try again. Still not good.

Took another break and then I was hit with an epiphany. John Rahm> John Daly. Stick with me on this one. I've found that since starting SuperSpeed that my swing with the driver has gotten longer and I'm bringing the club past parallel. Longer backswing equals more distance, right? Not for me.

I then started thinking about the ASD 2 protocol and the way it encourages the firing of the hips. I then went back and hit six more shots with the driver and saw speeds of 96, 98, 95, 95, 100, and 95. That's an average of 96.5 mph, an increase of 1.9 mph from my last test.

Since I didn't do any training this week due to other testing, I'll go back this weekend and see if there is any change.

This testing has been great! I haven't seen the monster jumps of some of my fellow testers, but to go from 89 mph to 96.5 is awesome!

So has anyone tried the level one protocols and then played? I did a level and today (going back there for 3 busy weeks - might get two a week in these weeks)

At any rate to point - I did the protocol and then an hour and a half on the range. I was fast in the protocol (for me). 118 righty green, 112 LH, 112 Blue 111 LH, 108, 107 Red.

There was a flag at 229 and a tree at 242 - I was consistently past the flag and sometimes past the tree almost always between them with driver. 7iron was waving at the 150 flag, 8 iron right around it. Hit tons of shots most really solid

Went back to a driver at the end and pulled Voice Caddy out. Last swing of the day was 95 with the driver. Past the tree that was 242 (down wind and dry out.)

That was a promising range session

Delightfully cracked into the 130's for the first time last night with the green at the end of a session.  I am a couple of weeks in and have found that I consistently have higher speed swings when I am not trying to swing completely out of my shoes.  I think when that happens, it becomes too much of an arm dominant and focused swing.  My best results come when my core is flexed and my swing thought is focused on keeping my arms long and turning through.

Glad to see you guys doing well with the SuperSpeed sticks!  Some serious gains in there.  I'm disappointed in myself for not being able to participate but the good thing is I feel much better now after the surgery.  It will be great to actually play golf without being in constant pain.  Congrats guys ... keep up the good work.

I'm glad to see you're feeling better after your surgery. It's no fun playing through pain and I'm hoping you can get out and just have fun playing pain free.

I haven't been technically cleared by my doctor yet. But dont tell him ..... I've been swinging in my back yard and hitting balls the last couple weeks. I played my first round two weeks ago, without PAIN! I'm thrilled beyond words.

Hey All -  been a few weeks I think since I've posted any numbers, so I figured I'd toss out a spreadsheet.  I few weeks back, someone (I forget who) posted a formula to project driver speed based on the three SS sticks (81% for green, 85% blue, and 88% red), so I added a column to average those out - it's one way to see see progress a little more clearly over time, and it seems to be a really good approximation based on a few swings with the driver here and there to see how things match up).  Still in that plateau (expected) and have slowed up just a little the past 2 or 3 weeks, which I attribute to not getting as much sleep lately and my eating being a bit off (lot of treats, I gained about 4 pounds the past moth, oops!).  I'm hoping to start playing in couple of weeks (tomorrow will be rainy, or we wouldn't gone out, then its Easter weekend).  It'd be great to start the year hitting the driver in the 88-90 range (secretly hoping for 90-92), get to that next jump, and once I get to the end of this protocol go into maintenance mode as suggested by (I'm assuming Daisy) in the last SS Golf post.  Hope to catch that elusive 120 mph soon too  
Looking forward to update from the rest of the gang.

So I’m doing the maintenance step last week and this as SuperSpeed suggested. Hit 119 with the blue club which is a record for me.

That means I have the potential to get to 123 or 124 with the green right now - 121 is my peak with that one.

Driver fitting Thursday - looking forward to that. Talking Irons with Jason from sub 70 in a bit. Strong possibility that I will order those.

I’m not at all convinced that I need a different driver - could just need a tweak to the current one.

Putter through wedges will stay the same - do need to address the top part of the bag though. But that’s for later.

Way to go Rev!!!   I think you can do better than 123/124 with a 119 blue.   I am at 116 blue and 125 green.

Sub 70 is definitely a brand that is taking off right now. It seems like they make an excellent product, offer great prices, and their customer service is amazing! I can't wait to hear what you think of them, Rev. I'm also curious about your driver fitting and what you'll go with. I know your true fit was Callaway, but I'm intrigued to see if your Ping just needs a different shaft.

Congrats on your progress!
