Effective Ways to Train SPEED

superspeed golf

Today we’re talking all about how to increase speed and how to hit the ball farther with two experts in this Kyle Shay and Mike Napoleon of Superspeed Golf.

We talk about the development and evolution of overspeed training and how to effectively train clubhead speed increases that LAST. Mike and Kyle walk through when the speed jumps happen using overspeed training and how much speed they’re seeing people gain on average.

OVERSPEED TRAINING Overspeed Training works by getting the body to move at a faster than normal speed during a known motor pattern. Essentially the brain has a set range of speed for the neuro-muscular response when a golfer makes a golf swing. We first need to increase the response speed from the body by reducing the “load” or in this case the weight of the club.

We then need to gradually increase this load to teach the brain that the body is capable of running the motor pattern faster. In our application to golf, we use a club that is about 20% lighter than a driver, one that is 10% lighter, and one that is 5% heavier in order to achieve maximum results from overspeed training.
