  • Excercises for Swing Speed

    I was at a brand new Sim yesterday and it was the first time in a few years I've seen my swing speed. I was around 115mph average less than 5 years ago, yesterday I was averaging 102. That's a huge drop.

    ​​​​Does anyone have good drills and exercises (in the gym) to help creep my swing speed back up? I don't need to be 115 again, but closer to 110 would be nice for a few more yards off the tee.

          There's a few guys to check out on instagram too

          @andopfs is awesome and has tons of free posts (you usually need equipment for his stuff though)
          @flatsgolfnfitness is also great. He has his own app and tons of programs

          If you're already in decent shape, check out speed sticks or the stack program. They're a great addition to gym workouts.

            With a speed of 75 mph, I shouldn't be near this thread, never mind posting in it, LOL, but this guy should know a thing or two about Speed Training.
            All best and hope u get ur 110 and hey, why not "shoot" for >115, still a month+ to go

              If you have been away a while, I'd focus more on technique than exercises. Getting the right feel to release everything correctly will add more imo than some exercise that will slightly increase hip clearing speed. I was doing a sim session with a friend last year near the beginning and just by making the adjustment to think more of releasing down than in front, his ss went up nearly 10mp from 100ish to 110ish with some wiggle room on both. This is something I first saw from a long drive champ talking about pulling down and releasing down. Commentators were focusing on his massive leg power but to him, his feel was that it was all in the hands and firing down and the legwork was a response to that. Larry Cheung also posted a vid some time ago working with a guy firing out 350 drives and the cue he was giving him was 'fire down'.

              I think it is much more likely ur technique and timing/sequencing fell off for the drop off in ss rather than physical ability to generate the same amount of force. Would def focus on that.

                I’ve heard some good things about Mach 3 Speed training.

                  Working in the gym and besides lower leg exercises I been working on my forearms and shoulders particularly left arm
                  even though you might be able to create speed I think the left arm and shoulder blade muscles have to strong enough to sustain the speed at impact and not break down.
                  As that structure is part of the club arm unit for the whipping action
                  Also I feel that strong/weak grip and Open/shut clubface matches up with the left shoulder
                  so that’s important for aiming as well

                    Hi there,
                    Sounds Great that you are doing the Lower body exercises because I noticed that most of the people trained their upper body. I always prefer my lower body first when I started EROS Fitness gym my trainer started with the lower body exercises.
