Not Your Average SuperSpeed Training

For those that stopped using Superspeed sticks, did you see your SS go down, stay the same, etc? 

I've had three or four long (couple month) breaks during the past three years. Any speed I've lost during the breaks usually comes back quickly. Of course, I was still swinging clubs/playing golf during most of those breaks so I was still using those muscles/neural pathways.

So figure its time for an update at it hit 40 this today, the first time in probably more than 2 months. Got out there to check the speed and how it is keeping up since I have been taking a bit of a break. Well I can confirm that the speed is still there and that the warm temperatures really help things out. I was hitting 110 out of the gate and even got up to 113 which is a big number for me. Feeling encouraged to keep it easy until things get a bit warmer again and then hit the ground running. Still been lifting some, doing some ab work, and still running. I will keep everyone posted and likely move this more to a game improvement thread in the future.

The warmer weather is awesome, isn't it? I was able to get outside on my patio instead of the garage to do some SuperSpeed work for the first time in a while. Much preferred, though it being warmer is going to drive my stir crazy until courses actually open...

So true looking at all the snow I know we are still close to two months from playing maybe a bit less. This is just a tease, but I'll take it.

Me... one day into your training schedule 😆.  I've been following the superspeed training threads and it's been interesting.  I keep getting tempted to try it but don't due to concerns over aggravating my left shoulder - which I've been able to keep manageable.

Thank for following along. It has been worth while and I might have gone a bit too hard at the beginning, youthful exuberance. I would agree with a shoulder injury like that full protocols might not work, but many have seen it work with just a couple a week and no other training.

Nice job, keep it going. The warmer weather was great yesterday. Went to the backyard for some dry swings and it was awesome. Hoping the snow in NJ melts soon.

Was able to get out to the range yesterday for the first time really since getting going on the super speed training and it was a great session. Did some shaft testing but with both the average swing speed was at 108/7 with an in control ball flight. Also got some ball speeds in the low 150s up to 154 which was great to see. Of course this was only on the PRGR monitor so might not be perfect but for comparisons it will do. Felt good to have a nice predictable ball flight figured out with the new speed.

Also started up Level 3 super speed this week and was happy to have only lost a very minimal amount of speed lost in the time off. Hoping with the warmer weather and continued training gains will start to come again. New goals are to be consistently at 110 or above swing speed and get up to 160 ball speed. Going to play this weekend and just looking to trust that going that fast will not send me off into the woods and this range session really helped this.

Just a quick update of how awesome the warmer weather is for the speed. Did an afternoon session this last Saturday when it was just so nice out. Being so warm and loosened up the speed was there very well. Nearly reached the max with each speed stick and hit 116 and 114 twice with my driver at the end of the session. These are my fastest swings and the weather had a great hand in this. Now I need to play a round of golf in this warmer weather as I normally play early in the morning with some cool temps, but makes me excited. Heading into the third week of level three here. 

As a question for anyone else who has gotten to this level, this level adds the double step, but I find this one tricky and speed really does not come through on this move. Likely just need to get more comfortable with it. Has anyone else found this to be the case for you?

It has been a while, but my kids were home for about 2.5 weeks due to some daycare vacation making it very hard to get work done and keep myself sane. Thankfully the motivation to stick to this and get back on track was my round this past Saturday. I had my longest drive even at 295 yards, which if it was dry I think could easily produce my first 300 yard drive. I know that the only way I have achieved this is through the work I have done in this thread.

Getting back into level 3 and the first couple sessions really took some getting back into it for sure. It always happens especially with the red stick (side note club ho in me thinks maybe a slightly lighter set up might be fun to try). I have made a few adjustments to the speed training after seeing the work of others using the Stack System and the Rypstick. I have basically dropped the non-dominant swings and have made sure to take some rest between sets. Currently about 30 seconds between sticks at the same type of swing and close to 2 minutes between the various types of swings. This does make it feel like I have the time to review and make sure I am able to put in the maximum effort on each swing.

Jump to today I felt like I was loose and having some good turn so I thought it might be a good day and I was right about that one. I set or tied records with every single stick and my dry driver swings after the session. This resulted in hitting 131 with the green, 122 with blue, 117 with red and 117 with the driver with my PRGR monitor. Of course not all the driver swing were that fast but it makes me feel like I am getting closer to a place where course speed can start to approach that 110 goal. Gonna keep up the grind and find the bright spot in the almost too warm weather, that my ball will fly even further.

Posted this in the practice thread but had to add it here as well. Went to the range today and in the middle did a little impromptu speed session with the driver after the great session on Thursday. Got warmed up and stated getting around 110 club head speed so I decided to get moving and see what I could do ball speed wise as I was seeing 154, my previous record.

A couple swings later touched 111 but ball speed was still stuck, just needed the right strike. I entered the just one more set hitting with pretty good pace. Speed was holding just needed that strike then about three shots later boom, 160 ball speed my fastest ever. Hit a couple more and even hit 112 club but almost lost the club so I was lucky the make contact, but the goal was speed.

Interesting note though I found that when the speed gets good I start hitting pulls that fade just a bit. Not sure why gonna try some video next time out.

Pics or it didn't happen right.
