Today was one of those days I wish I didn't have the radar. Totally demotivating, especially for the amount of sweat I produced. There was just no speed today. Almost everything was down a few mph. Tempo, timing, mechanics, a little bit of all of them? Who knows, but we'll see what Saturday brings.

I know you're not asking for a motivational speech, I'd likely have the same reaction, but there's a reason the progress and speed charts aren't linear...don't beat yourself up over it.  Outside temperature, your blood sugar and your diet, other physical activity, how much sleep you got...tons of contributing factors.  The important part is long-term progress.  Just come back more motivated for the next workout!

I know it's part of the deal, and I'm OK with it. I try to remind myself that this is like any other workout I might do - there are days it's just not there, but I need to soldier through and do it anyway to see the long-term benefit.

New personal best tonight. Post-workout second driver swing was 119. By my standards that is SMOKED. Breaking through that second plateau.

Slow swing speed 80ish mph, yellow/green/blue sticks , also a lefty.
One of my best sessions tonight, back outside after 3 days of rain. Was able to get more out of the knee swings.
Finished my session hitting 102mph 3 swings in a row. Hit 100 mph on the stomp swing 2 times and hit over 90mph with the “heavy” blue stick today

Testers, hypothetically, how well do you think you could hit a ball with your off hand swing? You've had a few weeks now to speed up and make it feel a little more "normal".

Feel free to take this out of the hypothetical, hit some and film them for posterity 😁😎

I'll get a video or two and post it later today! I may have mentioned it before, but I can swing fast just not sure about contact with the ball. Been too scared to try yet. That being said I would also like to change my grip off hand before. I found my hands getting sore normal grip so I went to 10 finger grip. 

At some point I'll do a little 9 right handed... Hopefully alone and with very very wide fairways.

July 1st Week 4 Protocol 1 Update: Jamie Danbrook

Another week down and some gains and some slower days. The overall feeling for me is that I am gaining on my base, but I can only reach my peaks on certain days. The floor is being raised and the ceiling is about the same as it has been. That being said my off hand swings continue to improve and feel more strong. This week of course there was focus on being as fast as I can be, but there was also focus on technique and making sure I am staying relatively in position. I found with some swings my back swing was getting abnormally long which then through some timing off when I did go to the range and hit some golf balls. So there has been a bit of a balance there to ensure that the game won't go completely out the window. 

However we need to see some numbers! Don't forget to check out the link at the top of the thread to see everyones fastest week by week numbers!

Start   End   Light ND Light D  Med ND  Med D  Heavy ND  Heavy D    MAX

107     119        111       131        109        123          104             117         130   
104     111        101       121        100        111           97              103         118   
105     110        108       119        101        116           99              111         128   

Step Change

131/114    123/110    114/103

114/101    109/101    104/96

125/108    116/102    110/101

All in all what I would classify as a good week. I do realize that I had a bit of a down period the last two sessions, however the feeling is definitely there and I am very confident the program is working well for me and that I am gaining speed. I feel faster and stronger and even more coordinated. Off hand swings as mentioned are gaining in speed and for me I feel that is a sign that the overall speed is without question! 

I don't have too much else to update on that I can think of right now, however if anyone has any questions please let me know and I would be more then happy to answer!

With a lefty driver..... that would be interesting. I know I can generate speed, but accuracy... yeah.... I’m not sure on that.

Ok I've been on hold for hours trying to get some flight stuff sorted out and figured I'd do up a quick graph for everyone. To show the numbers from Dominant only swings so far.

White - first driver swing before protocol

Orange - driver swing after protocol

Green/blue/red dominant handed swings

Non Dom may come depending on how much further I'll be on hold!

Soooo who thinks I can actually get the shaft to touch my shoulder on the downswing transition?  I never realized how close it is before looking at these videos! LOL

It is not intentional in the slightest, just a by-product of my flatter swing and transition I think.

Definitely need a new driver shaft. My PWR65 Stiff felt like a limp noodle today on my hard swings, and I had some bad hooks. Not quite ducks, but they were turning hard. 
 

Sidenote: I flipped a 4 iron upside down and hit it lefty out of a bush from 80 yards and put it on the front fringe today. Guess those lefty swings are paying off.

Good call. It is definitely behind me (I get the hands pretty deep). It is still pretty close to shoulder level when I transition.

Interesting reports of improvement. Unless the suspected areas of limitation have improved mobility vs causing the other regions that typically compensate to become overworked/stressed. I think it would be something that would be interesting to pay attention to over the long term. Large example I would be thinking of is Tiger Woods after his low back fusion and the continued stress with his high swing speeds

 

@RollingGreens one thing to keep in mind that we continually stress is that these are dry swings only meaning no impact forces from the turf or ball contact. Impact forces never seem to be talked about when speaking of golf injuries. However, swing speed is the number #1 thing that gets all the blame. A proper golf fitness program can only assist. It’s been helpful for golfers to hear Tiger actually admit recently how his poor training program caused injury. He was the face of golf fitness until it was revealed how poorly he trained during different stretches of his career. 
 

We have seen good success with using SuperSpeed helping to return to golf after an injury. Especially those such as lumbar spine and shoulder/wrist. With no contact in the turf, it can help to begin slowly building back speed with less risk. These wouldn’t include full out swings to begin but ramping up as the body allows. We actually built a SuperSpeed program for Tiger with his trainer just for this type of case.

I don't think this has been answered yet, so a question for @SuperSpeed Golf regarding the counterweighted club: How does the counterweighted club speeds relate to the speeds with the original sticks?

I hit a personal best with the C-club after my round this morning. 

IMG_03072020_094649_(800_x_1067_pixel).jpg.87fe58ddf01a6bdc855703d925fa0706.jpg

I actually did a slightly abbreviated SuperSpeed routine yesterday for warmup before my round and I really enjoyed how loose my swing felt after that. I might have to start doing that more often!

@edingc the C club will be faster than the lightest club but we don’t have enough data yet to give a percentage in relation to the other SuperSpeed clubs. 
 

Good to hear on the warmup! That can be very individual based on how you know what your body feels like after. Those that tend to do well with a SuperSpeed session before playing have been performing the training for quite some time already.
