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.

Ok so I really just wanted you to click on this thread, because this is mostly just a normal super speed review, except I am the one doing it this time. I am about three weeks into the first protocol

Wanted to take some time outline in a bit more specifics the workout plan that I will be following, Training Area Monday Tuesday Wednesday

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 aggravatin

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?
