The Stack System - A Conversation on Gaining Swing Speed


iacas

Recommended Posts

Finished the full speed spectrum. Long interruption and the last two sessions had a significantly delay. 

What’s the difference between the Cruiser and Flex programs? I will likely do one of the two next as the golf season begins and my ability to stick to a speed program every 3 days is less.

I think cruiser is meant for maintaining speed and flex can do more than that. But I'm just basing that on the descriptions that I linked.

Most importantly, I don't think the Mevo is all that accurate with the swings. Around maybe 20% of the time, I'm getting misreads or no readings. For a misread, I mean around 10 mph under what I would expect.

My experiment with the Mevo might be over after my last session. When it works, my instinct is that it's pretty accurate. But when it doesn't work, it's pretty terrible. I've had multiple times where 2 consecutive swings are 15 mph different. My 4th and 5th swings with 195 grams last night registered as 97 mph and then 112 mph. Finally, my set with 195 went from 106 to 96 between 2 sessions. Neither of those changes make sense. And there's 0 chance I actually had a 96 mph set with the 195 gram weight. 

I hope a future firmware update will make the Mevo better, but I will probably go back to the swing speed radar for now.

I ended up going with cruiser. I think your description is right and flex is a bit more demanding. Hard to fit it all in right now so cruiser seems better for me to sustain the habit during the season and while making technique changes on evolvr

Got the Stack in November 2022, but my workouts with it have been sparse. I’ve never completed a program and I only do Return to Form because my body hasn’t felt great enough to do them often.

Thankfully that is changing now finally. I’ve spent two years doing regular needle work, nonstop gym workouts for three years, and over the last six months, a lot of stretching. My doctor graded me an F for mobility six months ago. He checked me again this week and gave me an A++ for improvement. Huge restoration of mobility in my hips, lumbar spine, thoracic spine and hamstrings. It’s helping so much for golf and of course speed. I still have a ways to go here but I’m probably at a B to Rory’s A+ for mobility.

I haven’t done much speed training but clearly I’m getting faster. Pretty happy to be where I am right now despite only scratching the surface of this. Hoping I can continue to build here. My goal is to start and complete the Foundation soon. Fingers crossed!

When I came back to golf two years ago, I was around 88 mph with driver. Now my cruising speed is about 99 with a recent high of 104 mph during my range session on Saturday.

Pretty exciting 😀. Okay, time for another round of burgers. I appreciate this thread and everyone’s respective journeys here. Happy 4th of July, everyone! 🇺🇸💥🌭🍔
