My Progress w/Overspeed Training Using SuperSpeedGolf


Recommended Posts

@cedrictheo , The SuperSpeedGolf sticks are also probably better for the switch over to swinging left handed.  My wife is not that excited about me using her new Callaway driver to work out with.

Is this SuperSpeed Golf protocol you are doing, is it every day?  Or, like other exercise routines, are there off/recovery days?

@No Mulligans It is the SuperSpeedGolf Protocol 1 that I am doing. For the first 3 weeks I will be doing it every other day (1 rest day). Then I will be on a golf trip for 4 days. When I get back I plan to move on to some of the other protocols they have and may give my body a bit more rest between workouts.

Here's the video explaining the workout:

Tonight was my first time doing the protocol in 10 days due to weather, and was really surprised, hit a new  all time PR with the green club and it was in the last set of stationary swings at the end,

If you have old/unused shafts lying around, you can make your own speed sticks if you want for a fraction of the price. I had 3 shafts and I used washers that fit over the end of the shaft and us

Any drawback that you can think of to using actual clubs?

@No Mulligans I think that could work. You are looking for roughly a 10% increase/decrease in weight lighter and heavier. Hard to say without knowing the exact weights. However I would guess most people could improve thier swing speed by measuring with the radar and doing sets trying to increase it.

@boogielicious I am following the superspeedgolf protocol which does not mention swinging a regular driver. My plan is to assess driver distance using GameGolf when I'm in Orlando 2 weeks from now to see how the training converts into distance on the course. I dont have access to a flightscope or trackman now but if you think it would be beneficial I could take a few swings at the end of my training session with my regular driver and no ball and post the numbers (I'd venture to guess they will be well over my on course speed meaning they will be just as indistinguishable to you as the speeds with the training clubs).


I look forward to your comments from Orlando.  Have fun.

@boogielicious Nice, hope it works for both of us!


That would be nice!  One question:  Have you had any ill effects or injuries from doing this so far?

Listening to some of the youtube videos it was mentioned that you use your regular swing when you do the speed drills.  This has me wondering if this system might not be a good idea for someone that is taking instruction and trying to make changes to their swing, someone like me.

This is more or less my line of thinking. If your swing is just a little off you could potentially hurt yourself. Just be careful, @boogielicious

I think I will focus on form as well as speed.  I plan on doing it in my work gym that has a big mirror.  I think it will be almost like a plyometric exercise.

I was thinking the same thing, so I have no plans on getting this anytime soon. I will get it sometime in the future when I start making less changes to my swing and more just maintaining it. Assuming the product works, of course.

Ok, I am in as well. I received the equipment a couple of days ago and finished my second session tonight. So far, I enjoy the workout. I figure at the  very least this will keep my swinging while the snow is on the ground. The last time I was in Erie my swing speeds were 100-102 and my goal is to see if I can improve to 105 to 110. Measuring at home is something I am still trying to figure out. I have a Swing Speed Radar but the numbers seem to be a bit low. For example, night my driver around an average in the low 90's but I am still playing around with locations.

I noticed that my right shoulder was a bit sore after my first session. I am guessing that this is do to one of two factors (or a combination). I am a right handed golfer and the right shoulder seems to take on a lot of the deceleration. Of course there is not a ball there to aid in the deceleration. Also, I separated the ac joint in my right shoulder years ago so that is something I have to constantly work on.

I think I will focus on form as well as speed.  I plan on doing it in my work gym that has a big mirror.  I think it will be almost like a plyometric exercise.

I also plan on only working on my speed within the framework of the improvements I am working on.

Well, sometimes things don't always go as you'd like them to. I missed a workout... I moved that day and couldn't find the time, plus I was hoping rest would do me some good. But then I did this workout at night and the numbers are considerably lower than anything i've seen, I wonder if lighting affects the radars ability go pick up the club.

@boogielicious No injuries so far, I make sure to warm up for 2-5 minutes before I start the protocol.

@No Mulligans I've wondered this as well but have decided that speed is more important to me than my alignments.

@bjfox10 How was the lighting when you did the swings? As I think this may play a role in the measurements. Also I don't put much weight into the actual numbers as it's the feedback that's important. For example let's say first swing is measured at 55mph, the next swing measures 57mph, (and I actually swung faster) the next swing measures 50mph (and I actually swung slower)... I could use it to improve.

What's the difference using these speed clubs(which cost a few sheckles) then say a golf shaft w/o the head on it to "speed train" ?...Or alignment rods...?....wouldn't it feel better swinging a light weight women's club(driver or 5 wood)....

The idea behind overspeed training is that you have to use clubs that are within 15% of the normal weight of the club for it to be effective. I think anything can work as long as it fits the criteria.

If the club is too heavy or too light compared to an actual golf club, your mechanics will change.

I am doing the training in my basement so the lighting is not great.However, I do have a halogen light that I use to record swings with my phone. My next training is on Friday so I'll do some experimenting with it on and off. And you are right about the feedback it is giving. The numbers do not seem to vary much so while they may not be perfect I believe I can still track progress. For example, when I focus on the work that I have done with @golfevolution w hich is getting my arms down faster my numbers go up.

    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
    • The ace wins, but really they lose when you consider the cost of drinks compared to the small amount won for closest in two!
    • Yes, I'm going to go through all the tutorials. I also started the flight plan to look at Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, but it was too late. Let me get the hang of everything and I'll check out the mutlitplayer. MSFS has already used up 100 GB I suspect it'll get to 200GB.
    • I actually haven't done it, yet.  Used to be in the Traffic menu, there was a section to see online multiplayers or friends--but I haven't been in that menu in months.  I think then you can just get together and decide on a place to spawn, and you'll see one another and can possibly chat on headset.  Not sure if more is needed for the chat piece.  I know I can see my one random friend's online status and his scores on the landing challenges.  Maybe there's some option to "find" them in the sim?  I'll look more into all the multiplayer stuff tonight.  But friend me if you want, and we'll see if we can figure it out. I don't have it on my XBox...pretty limited space on that guy these days.  But, yeah, I bet it'd drain controller batteries like crazy if it's constantly rumbling.  Not sure how much flying, or sim-flying you've done, but if you're just starting out, maybe some of the AI-assist options around trim and power/mix control could help.  The training items seem to be pretty informative, too.   Tying it into golf, I've checked out a bunch of famous courses...everything in the Monterrey peninsula area, a lot of the UK, Bandon, etc.  I usually start at some random city, then pick a course I want to 'play', takeoff, find the course and give it a flyover, then land at the nearest airport in a little 'pretend mission' like I'm going on a golf buddy trip in my private plane. .  Then next time, takeoff from there and pick the next course.  I just made the hop from northern Ireland over to the west coast of Scotland a few nights ago.  In that part of the world, if you enable live weather, it can turn into a real challenge in smaller planes.
    • Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.
