It’s so embarrassing these days! I used to be somewhat flexible. That’s out the window after a day working in the yard these days 😟

Seriously! I used to go the trainings after my workouts so my body would be warmed up and didn't have to worry about all that. Whole different story now... 😔

Ok testers I have a question. I see you all talking about warm ups and flexibility. Do any of you think this regime will have a benefit for your overall fitness and strength? Can you feel parts of your body being worked that haven't worked this hard in years?

Honestly I don't think it's really any sort of standalone workout that would have any longterm fitness benefits.  The program is really about rewiring your brain and muscles more than making them bigger, increasing flexibility or anything like that.

I think swinging faster and harder than we normally do causes stress points on muscles and joints that we normally aren't hitting in normal workouts, so one can definitely feel sore in certain areas after a protocol session.  Personally, I haven't felt any post workout pain or soreness following protocols, but that is likely due to the fact that I do regular stretching and full body workouts outside of the SuperSpeed training so my body is better prepared to handle the stress of such violent swings

I don't think the SuperSpeed warm-ups contribute a lot to strength, however, I feel they are important to developing added flexibility. They exercises are also very fitting for a pregame warm-up.

I'm going to second this. I've been doing the warm up at home despite not having the sticks yet just to get into a routine and it is helping with some flexibility and a overall routine.

My obliques were very clearly sore after the first training session (as were my forearms). But after that, no more soreness specifically related to the training.

 

As others have said, it is about the brain more than the muscles’ strength. Even in our video conference with SuperSpeed they acknowledged that there is more to how fast a golfer can swing than just their program.

Strength, flexibility, technique, and equipment properly fitting the golfer’s swing all play large roles. This type of speed training just happens to be something most golfers don’t train.

 

There is a reason why most of the professional male long drivers are over 6ft tall and look like bodybuilders. Those long levers add speed just because they are longer than someone who is 5’6”.

If I remember correctly I think Bucky from the '18 test was doing a weight lifting regime that went along with the Speed sticks.

I feel like the off-hand swings were a real benefit to stretching me out. I feel a lot better after making some swings in both directions. They’re certainly not lying about preparing the body to slow down a faster swing.

OK, NOW I'm starting to get really convinced. Here are the week over week Day 1 numbers. BTW I'm using the 'Senior' sticks (explains the color difference).  If I can make this kind of progression weekly...hmmm.. FYI, my wife is getting similar increases as well and she's just as excited.

I have a VERY loaded question for the testers, or actually anyone who might have an opinion. My question goes to your thoughts on the efficacy of the SuperSpeed Training System vs. other simpler (read: less expensive) methods.  

Hank Haney says making a golf swing 50 times a day will dramatically improve your swing. So just being bored this winter, along with hoping to do something to improve my swing speed for the season, I started swinging my driver in my living room every day. I started off with a top speed of 89 mph as indicated by my PRGR device. After several weeks of swinging & doing the left swing/right swing drills other on-line coaches suggest, my top speed was routinely in 99 to 100 range topping out at 102 a few times when all the stars aligned & my body cooperated. At the driving range my swing speed seems to top out at about 96 mph, but now I’m concentrating on hitting it straight rather than purely swinging faster. I don’t know what my swing speed was when hitting a ball before starting this exercise.

SuperSpeed doesn’t cite specific speed increases, at least from what I read, after the initial 5%, just that you’ll continue to see improvements as you continue the program. I’m a soon-to-be a 69-year-old guy and I’ve already increased my swing speed in the 11%+ range. So my question is: do you think there would be much of an advantage to the SuperSpeed Training System for someone like me?

Thanks,

You can increase speed by swinging your driver with a radar unit. But that isn’t over speed training. If you search for over speed training there are protocols that just use lightweight sticks; saw one that used a driveway marker (couple of dollars at a home improvement store) and another just using the middle stick from superspeed. There are also lower cost sticks similar to the superspeed sticks and some people have done DIY to save costs.

 

If you are seeing I improvements in swingspeed doing what you are doing then great, but I can’t speak to how permanent the results will be. The advantage of superspeed is that they have designed protocols and has done research about maintaining the speed gains.

 

Everyone sees different results based on their body and how they are currently swinging.

I can't answer your question since I haven't seen side by side results with two identical people - one doing he SuperSpeed protocol and the other doing a 'just swing faster' driver training. However, what I do believe SuperSpeed brings to the table are: a discipline (protocol) and metrics for achieving results.

Over this past winter winter i started a total body fitness program - working both upper and lower body (alternating each day), I also spent a fair amount of time at our heated driving range swinging my long clubs. I was using a SC200 LM to track progress. Even though I consider myself in an above average fitness level,  when our course opened up in April  I saw little swing speed progress. Was that because I'm a year older (I'm 73) and my swing speed would have been lower if I didn't do those things? Or could it be that I wasn't doing the right things the right way?  What I can tell you is that after one week, both my wife (75) and I have seen more swing speed progress then with the winter workouts. 

Can you make them at home? Of course. Can you buy knockoffs, yup. I'm for a good deal anytime, all the time, however, the cost includes the intellectual property associated with the SuperSpeed clubs, And they're also a supporter of MGS.

Everyone sees different results based on their body and how they are currently swinging.

 

I had similar questions myself. The concept is not a new one; sprinters put elastic bands around their waists and have others basically slingshot them to where they have to run faster than before (overspeed) to avoid falling over.

 

So the science is sound. As another member said, the thing here is overspeed training. Swinging a driver only can improve speed, but it is it going beyond what your body could do before hand that makes overspeed different than becoming more efficient (if that makes sense).

 

I am one who felt as though I was already at my upper limit. While I do have concerns that the PRGR is struggling to measure some of my swings accurately (I’m going to post a video demonstrating this later), I do visually see faster swings and hear faster swings than my pre-testing.

Just finished my Week 2 day 1 training. I think I hit a PR on two of the exercises, but just 1mph faster for both.

Here’s the thing. I wonder if the PRGR struggles at faster swings. Reason being is I couldn’t get anywhere over 121mph with dry driver swings at the end of my session. So for fun I decided to try a “cruising swing” speed (85%) and a "golf course speed" (what I would swing on the course on a real golf hole). I was hitting 117ph, 118mph, and even 119mph with what felt like 85% effort and my golf course swings. Then I’d try all out effort and couldn’t get over 121mph (which I only hit twice, most were 118 or 119).  Recall that I have hit 130mph (just once) and 126mph.

Looking at the video (which I’ll post below) seems like there is substantial difference in speed (visually and sound), but only 2mph faster.  Maybe I'm crazy, but I don't want to just go off of "feel" when I could have objective data to go by.

Let me know if you all think the hard swing is more than 2mph faster than the others.  Maybe I'm crazy...

Watching it - I couldn't tell the difference. Do you have access to a different type monitor where you could evaluate them side by side? If our weather decides that sunshine is better than rain, I 'm going to test the PRGR against my SC200 just for giggles.

BTW  anything in yourt speed range just blows my mind. .

Watching it - I couldn't tell the difference. Do you have access to a different type monitor where you could evaluate them side by side? If our weather decides that sunshine is better than rain, I 'm going to test the PRGR against my SC200 just for giggles.

BTW  anything in yourt speed range just blows my mind. . 

 

The only thing I plan to do is get on GC Quad with my fitter at the end. I don’t have another launch monitor to compare to aside from that. I do need to try hitting balls and see if that helps it at all.

 

Thanks for the kind words. I just can’t fathom the huge differences I get at times.

Just finished my Week 2 day 1 training. I think I hit a PR on two of the exercises, but just 1mph faster for both.

Here’s the thing. I wonder if the PRGR struggles at faster swings. Reason being is I couldn’t get anywhere over 121mph with dry driver swings at the end of my session. So for fun I decided to try a “cruising swing” speed (85%) and a "golf course speed" (what I would swing on the course on a real golf hole). I was hitting 117ph, 118mph, and even 119mph with what felt like 85% effort and my golf course swings. Then I’d try all out effort and couldn’t get over 121mph (which I only hit twice, most were 118 or 119).  Recall that I have hit 130mph (just once) and 126mph.

Looking at the video (which I’ll post below) seems like there is substantial difference in speed (visually and sound), but only 2mph faster.  Maybe I'm crazy, but I don't want to just go off of "feel" when I could have objective data to go by.

Let me know if you all think the hard swing is more than 2mph faster than the others.  Maybe I'm crazy...

 

 

Could it be that it feels like you are going harder but the body mechanics aren't allowing the club head to move any faster? Personally my best distance with driver comes when my swing is smooth not when I'm making maximum effort.

By the way I'm loving this test guys, you're all putting in great efforts and answering our questions really well 👏👏👏😁😎
