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!

I actually did a second tru fit - when I bumped my clubhead speed 1 mph from 93 to 94 I got a totally different set of drivers - the Taylor Made M6 and M5.

So we’ll see. I’m also thinking getting the adjustability down just right might minimize some of those heal hits that plague me at times.

I’m psyched - also anxious to have short irons that feel like my wedges.

I just finished week 5 and I have a few questions for the more experienced super speeders

1) I am seeing my speeds increase in the 5th week by 5 or 6 mph across the light, medium, heavy.  Is that an indicator that I should move to protocol 2 or is there a standard length that I should do protocol 1?

2) My numbers were pretty static for 4 weeks and then boom, the numbers went up.  I was wondering if that was normal?

1) In my opinion you should continue to follow the protocol that superspeed lays out. 

2) I think every person is different.  My numbers stayed pretty constant through protocol 1 with a jump at week 3 and then they settled back down.  I am up a few MPH now that I am in protocol 2.

1. I saw my jumps at weeks 4, 12, and 17 but I would recommend finishing out the protocols.

2. I would say it varies from person to person, but my speeds usually jump the way yours does.

Welcome to the group! I concur that you should do the protocols per SuperSpeed’s site. There will be more individualization as you get into later protocols - some choices based on your specific swing tendencies. If I recall it that happens at Week 20.

Many of us have seen jumps rather than a steady increase. Those jumps have come at different times depending upon the person. As a heads up we’ve also experienced plateaus that have in some cases included a slight speed loss followed by a jump.

Good luck!

I'm probably going to start over with the beginning protocol. I had a procedure done to remove a cyst from my back, had an allergic reaction to some bandage adhesives. That led to a round of allergy testing = more stuff all over my back. Throw in new weekly lessons (at least for 2 more weeks) and extra practice for league season starting. All that adds up to about 3 weeks since I had a 3 session week. And my second break of at least two weeks.

I think somewhere in the thread it was mentioned that SS does not recommend doing training protocols on days you practice/play. Is that absolute or is it permissible to work in the protocols before or after hitting balls? The biggest challenge with current work/gym/golf routines is being able to isolate a day for SS that doesn't have gym time or range time also on the schedule.

Gentlemen,

I was coming in to post after my training this morning, and then saw this awesome article on the homepage that just went up, so CONGRATS and THANK YOU all for the hard work put in! https://mygolfspy.com/mygolfspy-community-case-study-superspeed-golf/

 

For me, the grind has been REAL. I sit here, at week 23 and still grinding it out. I've for sure been stuck in a training range since my last bump/jump in performance back around February 12th (or roughly week 13 for me)....................but I'm gonna be stubborn and keep pounding at it.

You’ve got to hang in there - bumps come when they are least expected.

Wow - so sorry about the cyst removal complications. My wife has cyst issues and passed those to our son. He had to have cysts removed twice after lengthy sea deployments - imagine trying to sleep on a rack on a sub with one. Ughh - at any rate I feel for you man!

To your question, there’s the perfect and there’s reality. The reality is with a busy schedule you will do workouts on days that you play/practice good. If I’m playing on a SuperSpeed day I try to keep that workout as far away from my round as possible. If I’m practicing I do the protocol first as a part of my practice.

It’s worked well for me.

I'll agree with@revkev and encourage you to keep up the great work. It seems like the plateaus get longer, but the end result is definitely worth it.

Also, I want to say thank you to @GolfSpyBarbajo for the excellent write-up on the main page. I was nearly late getting back from break when I saw it was posted.

I have a bone to pick with you chunks - getting new clubs is a like a new wardrobe when you loose weight?  I lost weight, it cost me $250 to replace my dress clothes. 

Those are the two fittings towards new clubs. 🙂

It definitely feels good when you do it, but it kills the checking account. I would definitely say need clothes are less expensive, but they don't bring in the fun factor of a shiny new set of clubs. Have you gone for your fitting yet? I really can't wait to see what you end up with.

By the way, for $250 I bet you got a lot of new clothes. Aren't skinny people clothes cheaper that the husky stuff like I have to wear?

Thanks for everyone's response.  I appreciate the feedback.  I love the response that indicated when you least expect the increase, it happens.  That's how it felt. 

I am excited and looking forward to the next few weeks.  Hopefully, I will remain injury free and stay after this.  I did not make it to 5 weeks in my past attempts before this year, so I am already in a better place.

That was a great article.  I dislike reading my own comments for anything but it was cool to see our story on the main page.  Way to go @revkev and @sirchunksalot.  You're famous!

Legends in our own minds. :) You sounded great Bucky. I did not have a career drive in league play tonight but I had the next best thing, 3 7 irons from 160 plus that left me in birdie range. Those would have been 5 hybrids last year.

That was an excellent summary in the article and very motivating.  I believe that I'm going to order a set during my knee surgery recovery so that I can begin training as soon as the doctor releases me to swing full again!  Thanks to all the testers for sticking with it and giving us valuable information!

We shouldn’t loose sight of the fact that SuperSpeed has been great through this process. For example their little post a week or so ago about how to maintain during the season was huge. I was really struggling with what to do between play and work. Work will slow after next week and having done maintenance the past few weeks I’ll jump back in where I left off.
