Great post!

 

Speaking of injuries, has anyone had some persistent lower back pain start while using the Super Speed sticks?

I had a lower back injury two weeks into the training.  It set me back a few weeks.  To be fair, and I documented this throughout the forum, but I was doing a lot all at once:  rowing daily, weight lifting daily, SuperSpeed, and lowered calories for fat loss..... so it was mainly just overuse for me.

FWIW, I read an article about managing lower back pain today, and it stressed activity. Based on that I did my session of protocol 1. My speeds were down a bit from early this week, but magically my back feels much better!

Since I drove 9.5 hours yesterday, it took me a while to warm up today. I started a little on the slow side, but finished well. After driver swings were 116, 116, 119, 119, 117. I really felt like I was going to crack the 120 barrier, but at least i was fairly consistent.

Interesting article!  I've been very fortunate in that I've never had any issues with lower back pain, just really some occasion discomfort from sitting too long in a bad chair, that kind of thing.  I've always found that some exercise involving my lower back helps when that happens, so I think my experience matches up with the article.  I know a couple of guys that swear by deadlifts for lower back pain, as long as your form is correct.

Have you gotten on a launch monitor to see if your driver spin has increased drastically? Could be missing out on lots of distance if your shaft/head combo isn’t low spin enough at those speeds.

Had a decent night. Seems like I am settling in a bit. Not getting those super high numbers, but do feel a bit stiff. Been a long week and not surprised at the numbers being where they are. Another hot day here so wore two gloves which helped. Did a full video which I'll edit and post in the next couple days when I have a decent internet connection!

The kids wanted to see how fast they could swing. So naturally I grabbed one of their clubs and tried to see how fast I could swing it

Much better. I still get some tightness every now and then, but it’s not like it was when I let really couldn’t move without it seizing up. Still need stretching and rehabilitation exercises to keep it linger and strong.

I have not. My biggest concern about my driver since the Bridgestone test a couple years ago has been the high launch and high spin. I've only had it on a LM once a while back. We didn't get fit for those, just a few no-upcharge shafts to pick from. I'm just guessing, but I feel like launch is even higher now, so it's definitely something I need to sort out as time goes on.

What did you do to heal it? How do you feel now?

Rest at first until I could actually move a bit. I saw a chiropractor a day or so after the initial injury. Then it was light weight rehab exercises for a few weeks. I did a lot of leg raises to strengthen glute and lower back where it was hurt.

I'm actually the opposite. For the last five-ish years my lower back has been a bit of a mess. I believe the combination of the dynamic warmup and protocols have very beneficial for my particular issue. Obviously your mileage may vary.

Funny you say that. After reading that article, I began exercising my back. I did my Super Speed protocol 1 sessions Saturday and today. Both times it immediately loosened my back and the pain went away. Saturday my speeds were slow, but today I reached a couple of new highs. Of course my highs- mid 90s are slower than most of the testers starting point 🙂

Since @ChasingScratch posted the @SuperSpeed Golf chart, I've been doing some thinking....

Perhaps SuperSpeed can chime in (and anyone else who may have an idea, of course).

My recollection was the second jump typically happened late in the second protocol. Since that was clearly wrong and it's more like late third/early fourth protocol (I'll be starting level 3 next week), what is going on with me? Is it possible that my swing was so out of whack mechanically that I'm still experiencing the first jump and it's just taking me longer to sort out the mechanical components required to go faster? What I had interpreted as the plateau seemed more like the regression that @revkev mentioned, so I had assumed the second jump was here. Here is an up-to-date chart for my driver speeds since the beginning. Since there have been some peaks and valleys, this data is a 5-session moving average to try to smooth out some of the noise. For the last 3-5 weeks, there has been a pretty steady climb. Is it possible I am at the second jump a little early? I suppose a third alternative is that things have finally settled down some so this is really just the first plateau?

Here is the raw data, before averaging.

@MaxEntropy agree with what @ChasingScratch said here about this. The peaks and plateaus chart we put together is the average we see after logging thousands of golfers over a 7 year period. That is also the same with the average speed percentage increases we see. However there are always outliers. It’s great that you’re seeing another nice jump happing now. 

Did you test yourself yet on the Advanced Speed Drills?
