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?

Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
 

For cardio I was doing the SS warm up followed by the Level 2 swing drill, except I was doing 10 swings each side with each club. I was doing this 3 times a week after my regular workout while the gym was still opened. The first time I tried this my heart rate hit 98% of my theoretical maximum for my age. I was able to routinely get my HR in the +90 % range thereafter. That’s not a bad cardio workout when you consider the time it takes to make 190 swings. For reference when doing HIIT I will take my HR to 110% for a brief spurt, but haven’t done that since the gym closed.

I've looked at the set since they have come out.  Looking forward to see the results!

Just got done doing some yard work (push mower, edging, fertilizing).

 

Bad news: back is still very tight

Good news: it’s not as bad as yesterday

 

I might end up being a week behind after this lets up.

I have to hear you're having tightness in your back. Hopefully it'll let up soon, but the most important thing is to take care of yourself and get better. 

 

For those of you discussing the heel stomp, just wait until the 4th protocol. It'll be there waiting for you. I went into a maintenance mode right after starting that protocol then got lazy and put SuperSpeed to the side. I couldn't get much out of it, but after the TXG video I think I might have not properly timed it.

Week 2, Session 2 complete. 

Highlights: Finally broke through the 110 barrier with the driver and topped out at 114 both Tuesday and today. Also hit 124 with the green stick (after being stuck on 120 since the first session) and LH swings are getting more speed. I'm sure they still look like garbage, but I registered a 110 left handed with the green stick.

I'm sure it's a combination of the warm-up and the protocol, but until this session, I felt tightness in my back when i got done. Tonight, my back feels great.

So I'm a little concerned with what I've been seeing on the course and now my range session today. 

A slice. 

I haven't sliced the ball in 7 years and since starting Super Speed I am starting to see one creep into my game. Not sure if it's the speed training throwing off my sequencing or what. Going to have to keep an eye on it.

It's definitely something you have to keep in check. Both times I started SuperSpeed I developed a tendency to go left, either by a pull or a hook. I think you're right about sequencing, but you should be able to diagnose and fix whatever is causing the slice.

Probably comes down to your natural athletic motion and what you feel like you need to do to create speed. Also, bc there is no face on the swing speed sticks, and no weight around the hosel axis to cause rotation, it’s easy to leave the hands out of it and not use them properly in a square manner. I hit high ballooning balls and slices for the first time in years also. It fixes itself as you get more proficient at swinging faster because your sequencing improves. But, I recommend doing orange whip or 50% speed drills in conjunction with super speed to keep your timing and face control in sync. I am now doing orange whip to warm up, then the stretching, then the super speed protocol, followed by a cool down with the orange whip. And on off days that I don’t play golf, I make slow motion swings in the backyard trying to hit an 8 iron 25 yards with a full swing. It gives me a nice blend of speed, tempo, and face control.

You get video? Any additional right shoulder creeping-up and coming over the top a tad?

Good thought! I am wondering if it’s a true slice that starts left or a blocked fade that starts right. I block fade mine, hands way out in front, path right, face more right.

A little bit of both. Open face for sure. Path varies now. 

Hoping with time my sequencing will improve with the new speed

I've never heard of doing this type of drill, but it seems like a sound idea. I'm going to have to give it a try!

Thanks! I stole the idea from Greg Norman, who said low handicappers should learn to swing at 50% and still feel acceleration through the ball.

I am sold...going to go buy this tomorrow.

That said, I don't have the coin to get the radar too...am I wasting my time then?  I mean, I'll still improve, it will just be harder to quantify by how much...right?

I got the Japanese version of the PRGR, costs about $100 shipped, off eBay, its basically the same thing with UoM as M/S instead of MPH. Everything else is basically the same. If you can, get that.

I did the program for a few week without a radar and got bored of it as I couldn't see numerical/tangible results, having a radar helps you understand your progress and keeps you motivated.

Ok. so I am not an official tester but wanted to share my week 1 results with y'all. I feel like a weekly check-in will keep me going and won't let me quit even when I stop seeing progress.

image.thumb.png.8b665d34fa8389041397a6364314f198.png

Last Friday, I did more of a dry run to see where I stand before I start the program to set a baseline, I didn't do a warm-up and did the training at around mid-night.

The program officially started this past Monday, in the evenings with the Dynamic Warm-up, and we can see that with 3 days of training my Driver speed has increased by almost 5 MPH (ignore the Monday Driver After, as that was a misread but I couldn't get the PRGR to read the driver properly because of low light). All other speeds have more or less stayed consistent, I'm not exactly sure why, I can't find myself to break 111 MPH with the Green club in the final 3 swings, but I'm hopeful, I know I'll get there. 

Are there any tips that y'all can offer to get better results?

More lag = club face takes longer to square perhaps? If the shaft is too soft, it could be lagging perhaps.

Or in an effort to swing faster you’ve started coming out to in?

Just spitballing.

When I swing all out my tendency is also a push fade.
