I'll be in Bonita in March. Can I interest you in a round at San Carlos?

I can see a big MGS outing coming in March. Not sure what we'll have going on then but right now I'm planning on attending!

Any feedback on my previously posted question:

A theoretical question especially for those in 2 categories: slower swing speed and higher ss numbers with the yellow or green sticks.

Since the SS is higher for those lighter sticks, wouldn't it make a difference in going to lighter shafts and drivers? Yes I know the common answer is go get fit - which I have been, but just curious.

So I knocked out my first ASD1 protocol this morning, the prescribed protocol if you determine you're inefficient at using the ground. I found it a little odd that the ASD protocol did not conclude with 3-4 dominant side green stick swings like we're used to in the standard protocol.  

If you're not familiar with ASD1, you alternate dominant and non-dominant reps through 4 different drills, rather than 3-4 dominant, then 3-4 non-dominant.  What I'm curious about is that I thought the biggest bang for the buck came from the the heavy red stick swings being immediately followed by final and concluding green stick swings.  Seems a little odd to me to finish on red swings, and I thought about adding some green swings at the end, but I'm not about to think I'm smarter than the @SuperSpeed Golfexperts.  Thoughts anyone?

@tony@CIC that can certainly happen. One company trying to take advantage of that is XXIO offering much lighter shafts. Generally a lighter shaft will create more speed but does it transfer well into good contact and ball speed? We’ve also seen heavier shafts create more speed. It would be worth it to at least test a lighter shaft but as you mentioned that is where club fitting comes into play. TXG recently did a video on this concept.

I’m a week away from coming off of maintenance mode. I wish someone would tell the weather that it’s suppose to be cooler. :)

The weather has finally "cooled" off here in Texas.  Low 80's or high 70's from here on out hopefully.

It touched 90 here today with a dew point of 76 - so heat index over 100 again. 😞

So, this year I did not follow my Superspeed training like I did last year. Early in the year I was averaging 285 off the tee. But recently I had seen a drop in my distance, my last three rounds were around 265. I started training again for a week, and when I played 9 yesterday I averaged 288. I used my driver 6 times and 4 were over 300! I am kicking myself for stopping, and I realize that I am going to have to push myself past that plateau. So hopefully I can add some more positive post like this more.

Question for @SuperSpeed Golf or anyone else who has been through this.... With fall firmly upon us, the weather has not cooperated all that well for me. I have not been able to maintain 3 sessions a week for around a month now - probably more weeks with only 2 sessions. Do I continue trudging along with Level 3 as best I can recognizing there may be gaps of a week or more when the snow starts flying? How long of a break would essentially require me starting over?

I also have a question for SuperSpeed.  I had intended to pick up at level 3 three times a week per the program starting next week.  However I just registered for a virtual PT program through my Insurance provider.  I just had my first meeting with my TP and it turns out that she is also a Titleist trainer, SCORE, for me.  

 

Should I allow a little time to let that program start to sink in before advancing with level 3?  I could stay on maintenance - I am convinced that some additional strength and flexibility will help with my speed progress especially in allowing me to recover quicker between workouts.

 

Thoughts?

@cjeffs12 great to hear you’re back on the training!

Some players find it helpful just to go into a maintenance mode if they aren’t able to do the full training. Once or twice a week depending on the player can work but some players stop during a plateau and their speed doesn’t really drop down at all.

@MaxEntropy great question! Since you go through Level 2 fully you can take a break and start back up at Level 3 when convenient. Some will go back to Level 1 but you should have no issue. 
2x a week per protocol is the minimum we see to get results and 3x per weeks seems to get he best results for most everyone. So it would depend if you want to keep training and you are seeing gains with 2x a week or would prefer to take a break now.

Looks like Switzerland is headed for another mini lockdown and means that I think now is just as good of a time as ever to reup and fireup the Superspeed program again. Had a good break while things were picking up at work and busy, but lots of uncertainty and could be a lot more time at home again.

Thank you for all your input and activity in this thread. Speaking for myself, it was a huge help!

I promised to post a video of one of the sprint protocols. Here is is:

This was my third session doing this protocol - I feel like my balance is improving every time out, but you can still see a couple swing in this video where it is more of a scramble for me to get reset quickly. Question for @SuperSpeed Golf: just for giggles, I have the radar set up, knowing it does not have the response time to capture all the swings, but I was curious what my speeds are doing this versus starting stationary. I have been losing about 10 mph doing this protocol, regardless of which stick I'm swinging. Is this normal? I also understand this protocol is designed to help create lag - is there some specific feeling I am going for or will it just "happen" as I progress?

 

@MaxEntropy looking like pretty good balance here. The speeds will be slower than standing swings but should start creeping closer and closer as you get better with the protocol. 5-10 mph less is what we expect for most. Lag is tricky as just trying to hold the angle doesn’t work. It’s best to work on things that will influence it without trying such as this protocols. You can always refilm yourself to see if anything is changing in the wrist angles.
