I’ve just reviewed the spread sheet. Just to check is it driver swing speed you want to capture? And do you want it before or after the speed training? 

Driver, before. The third column.

What are folks doing for a warm up for this? I am having trouble getting loose the last couple of sessions. It’s cold a raw out. I’ve been doing active stretching followed by some of my drill work. When I feel warm, I do the SuperSpeed Phase 1. 

Also, @iacas, what Mach 3 training device are you using? I may try that as well.

I was messing around with a buddy today swinging as hard as we could regardless of contact. Max driver speed was 131mph, and green speed stick got to 140mph (using super speed radar). Most driver swings were around 126/127mph. Honestly couldn’t believe the numbers. Not sure if I can improve on that. What felt like normal driver swings in the beginning were 118mph. At the end of the session, I tried to slow down and go for contact, and hit a good one at 123mph. I wouldn’t expect to keep that but if I could swing normal and get 120-122 consistently, that’d be awesome!

I'll be at the range tomorrow and I will be recording my averages. Those are the numbers I will be using for my baseline.

Sorry I meant for the med and max columns each session not the start one. I asked the question poorly :-(

I assume it’s driver swings after doing the training each day.  Or it could be the speed from the medium stick during the training?

It is the max green stick and max driver hitting a ball.

The link on the very first post in this topic isnt working for me either, but the one @iacas posted on Dec 31st worked for me just now.

I do have a question and maybe I missed it when I was quickly catching up in this thread, but I'm a bit confused which swing/colored stick is the one that we should be recording and entering in the spreadsheet for Days 1,2,3. (I get that Column C is the baseline driver speed before starting the program)

The link in the first post worked for me. The image was broken, though, and so maybe you clicked the image link instead of the link to the spreadsheet. I re-posted it, but also, it's here:

Just bookmark that link. Should work forever.

Measurements are with the blue stick, the medium one. Green is light, red is heavy.

Before: 118 median, 123 max.
After: 122 median, 129 max.

I think this is incorrect. It should the blue stick speeds, correct @iacas?

Yes, measure with the blue.

Anyone who measures with the driver hitting a ball, bold your speeds. I’ll add a note to the first post later on.

Okay I am confused about the protocol and posting.

I posted my average driver speed.

What is Before and After        Med and Max?  Step by Step how is this determined.

Do I do a series of swings with the Blue Stick BEFORE I start the Level 1 Protocol and then after I am done.  How many swings for Med (which I assume means average)?    HELP!!

    • The movie "Grease" is still one of my favorite of all time greats.
    • Slow swing speed here, so lots of headcovers: Driver - 10.5* 5W - 18* 9W - 23* 6H (5i replacement) - 27* 7H (6i replacement) - 30* The gapping from 5W to 7H is about 10 yards per club, so it works well for me.
    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.
