I know I’m swinging faster on week 5, but my drives are out of sync now so they’re actually flying 20 yards shorter. That’ll come with time though. I smoked a 5 wood 265-270 twice today though, further than my driver.

Maybe you need a stiffer and/or heavier shaft to accommodate the extra speed?

Maybe. I think it’s a timing issue. The ball is just soaring on me. Has to be going 140 feet at the apex and falling to the right. Not quite a slice, and I played it really well today, hitting 9/14 fairways.

I feel you! I breezed through Level 1 and made decent progress, but 1 week into the Level 2 Protocol and having to kneel got me to just give up. 

I just got myself a PRGR Launch Monitor and that's got me excited to start the program again and hopefully not give up this time around. 

Anyone here know how to change the unit on the PRGR? Change from MPH to M/S? I've been trying to figure it out but can't seem to find anything about that.

Not sure how to make the change on the PRGR, but if you multiply your M/sec x 2.237 that will give you MPH.

Ugh, just finished the 3rd workout of the week. I’m beat. I’ve been on an aggressive fat loss calorie goal the past month and a half and I think it might be time to up the carbohydrates a little. . This is tough to do on a large deficit each day. That and I increased my weight for my weight lifting workouts this week, so that probably isn’t helping.
 
If it sounds like I’m making excuses, I’m not, I’m just trying to inform fellow Spies that this program is not something to take lightly. You need to be well-rested, well-fed, and have as little soreness as possible. Take it from my personal experience.
 
While I hit a PR of 138mph with the green stick (normal swing), I still think the PRGR was struggling with the readings. It was very cloudy again today, so I don’t know if that has something to do with it. Just looking at video and listening to the sound, I can tell I’m faster than my pre-test swings at least.

I’ll try to get my Week 1 review video and initial impressions posted by Sunday at the latest!

I have had a similar situation going on. I have been losing weight over the past few months and unable to lift and it has really stunted any gains on my numbers I've hit the dreaded plateau. Can only do so many things at once haha.

Yeah I’ve been able to make small gains in strength, but it’s like I used to tell my students, “It’s impossible to add to your house if you’re taking away building materials.”

 

When I was powerlifting, I was eating 3,500 calories a day only weighing in the 160s.

 

So I think I can put the fat loss on standby (at least not so aggressive) so I can have the energy needed for this training.

138? That's a 'dreaded plateau' I'd love to be on.

I do not have a device but i know i have seen the question on amazon and have hears the "Down arrow" and "Enter" at the same time should do it.

Yeah, I saw that too and tried it, but sadly no luck. Thank you thought!

Yeah, that's what I did. I set up excel sheet to convert my numbers directly. So as soon as I get done inputting my data, I find out my speed in the correct UOM.

First week is complete:

image.png.70a7f855448176e88d7545df3da3e63e.png

Started out great, then flattened out later in the week, not that I expected that trend to continue. Being stuck on 111 is not a concern to me since it is still 15 mph above where I ultimately started. Hoping next week to crack 111 with the driver and 120 with the green stick. I have to wonder how much is related to mechanics and my body needs to figure out what it needs to do to get more speed.

Stay tuned....

Great results in the just 1 week. Excited to see how the rest of the program goes for you!

For those that did the first round of testing or for the SuperSpeed folks.  Is there any sort of protocol/warm-up routine with the sticks that is beneficial to use right before a round?

I believe that @revkev is or was doing the dynamic warm up before a round.

I'll do the dynamic warm-up before the round, too. SuperSpeed initially recommended it, but I saw on their Instagram page a few months back they had the end of it and went from just 10 swings with the heavy stick to this.20190228_100537.thumb.jpg.b3b5618df6fec714a8420b315095938c.jpg

I didn't see that in the instructions. A couple of thoughts - reach out to PRGR another would be to just log the current info and use a conversion app. 


Or you could ask Siri.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I like this - I’m going to give it a try tomorrow afternoon - I’ve honestly thought seriously about dynamic warm up and 1st round of a protocol pre round - that seems to be when I’m fastest.

The issue of course is stowing 3 sticks for an entire round

That's part of the reason I'll just do the dynamic warm-up for the protocols with just the heavy stick swings. I only carry 13 clubs and have the extra slot for the speed stick. I could just put the other two in the trunk, but I hate leaving any clubs in that kind of heat.

After session one, my initial driver swing was 100 mph. After completion of the regiment, my driver swing speed was 111.

 

After session two, my initial driver speed was 101 mph. After the regiment, my swing speed was 119.

 

As I said in the beginning, Impressive…

YEAH BUDDY!!!  What an awesome jump in speed!!!  Keep it up.

How many of y'all actually do the Dynamic Warm-up? Honestly, I get very lazy about the warm-up and skip out on it often. Does it help?

Secondly, when do y'all do the trainings? Mornings, as recommended by the program or later in the day?

Great quote, I'm going to have to use that haha. What's funny is just as I said that today's workout went better. I am going to throw the random question out there of has anyone from the old group found a way to handle the physical fatigue? More to that point does anyone do cardio exercising in their daily life which makes the swings easier?

 I’ve done the warm-up every time so far. From a kinesiology standpoint, it is very important. You’ll never see a professional sprinter or basketball player start a game without warming up first. Specific to swinging a golf club as fast as humanly possible, I saw a video where former Professional Long Driver Joe Miller was saying he doesn’t hit his top speed until at least an hour into his workouts (to the best of my memory). So the body does need time to loosen up and swing freely.

 

I’ve had to do my trainings around lunch time so far.
