Worked through the level 3 program and got to the rest period and saw my speed drop to where I had to fight to see over 110mph on Trackman. This could be because Level 5 protocols were so intense that after each training session speed was up but going from that to 1 day a week I saw way to much regression. I purchased the Counter-Weight stick to see if this would help counteract that regression and will update my progress accordingly.

Update:  no real speed training with the SS Sticks.  I have been blasting drivers on the range from time to time as hard as possible.

I have been working in my garage on some iron speed training at times as well.  I saw Rory and Tony Finau hit 139mph ball speed with their 7 irons today.  That’s moving it and inspired me a bit!  Here’s a short video of where I’m at:

Thanks for sharing that video! The ball coming off the face in your garage just sounds violent! On a side note, those ferrules with that grip is sweet.

Thanks!  I’ve always loved the black/red combo on pretty much everything.  Like cars.  Black paint with red racing stripe = $$$

Been doing the counterweight protocols for the past 5 weeks and have been seeing some speed back on Trackman.  Since these protocols are only one day a week I was doing them alongside the level 3 maintenance protocols 1 day a week as well. I think more of the speed gain is for me just needing to be doing speed training at least twice a week. 

 

Overall I really like the protocols for the counterweight day much better than the standard 3 stick protocols. The simplicity of one stick is nice and Narrow stance swings have been one of my favorites as it has helped me with weight transfer without moving off the ball.

Next week I start level 2 so I will post an update then.

New ball speed records for me tonight.  Previous had been 181mph a few times.

I just got back from vacation with the family, unloaded the car and decided to hit some.  I started out in the high 170s and just had a goal of hitting 180mph a few times just to check in and make sure I’m not losing speed.  Then I got into the competitive side of myself. I started hitting 182, 183, and then hit a new record of 185mph!  I wanted to see how far I could push it.  Then this happened:

Once I hit 188mph I kept hitting 185+ over and over.  It’s crazy what you are capable of once you see it happen once time!  I want to hit 190mph before the summer is over!

Little update on the counterweight protocols. I am in week 12 of training which puts me in level 3 of the training protocols. My speed has gone from starting at 108.9 in week 1 to starting week 12 at 112.9mph I am starting to level out now and don't see to much more speed gained as I finish up level 3 protocols. However, I am getting much more comfortable at this speed again and contact has improved with the speed. 

I am comfortably seeing ball speeds above 165mph and club head speeds over 115mph several times a session. I even broke a personal best with 116.4mph club head speed and 170.8mph ball speed.  The end game is be averaging 115mph club and 170mph ball speed by the end of the year but we shall see. 

I will say being able to increase speed with only one club has been great and a lot less time consuming which I appreciate as well.

24 MONTH UPDATE: After getting almost entirely through protocol 3 in 2020, I went into a self-defined "maintenance mode" last year where I was working on protocol 3 and did it 3-4 times per month. This year, I have only done it a couple times (but not since June) and have enough Arccos data to confirm I need to get back on it, certainly in the spring if not right now. I would really love it if I had some place indoors with the headroom to swing through the winter. On occasion I'll catch a drive that will sneak out to 280-ish, but last year those "good outliers" where closer to the 300 range. The comparison might not be entirely fair - it's been a weird ball-striking year for me, struggling to find the center of the face for too long, but it has been better the last few weeks.

Feeling the same way have really gotten off track this year, with limited childcare in our area right now kids bopping around the house limits the time, but hoping to start back up in October once they are all in care. I also can't do it inside, but I have a nice rubber mat and if I keep up on the driveway I can usually get it in all winter even if it is a bit cold some days. Good luck with getting back out there.
