I've recently been on a quest for speed during lockdown here in the UK. Taking pages from the Bryson playbook, speed sticks and max speed training on trackman. I have hit a plateau recently, just curious to see if any of you guys have had success gaining speed. What feels/training techniques/methods have you guys had success with?

Let's not forget one of the biggest things Bryson did as part of his process -- he got a lot stronger.   Speed training is for gaining speed. Strength training is for allowing your body

to add to this, prior to really ramping up speed and strength, i heard he spent 18 months working on eliminating muscular imbalances and improving neuromuscular pathways. 

If you haven’t done so, check out the SuperSpeed and MaxSwingSpeed threads on this forum. Plenty of input from people doing this, hitting plateaus, and pushing through.  Also lots of good input from t

SuperSpeed is good stuff. Just doing the basic protocols kind of at random have made me feel more comfortable swinging fast. 

 

I believe having the thought of "speed" and "fast" is much better mentally than swinging "hard." "Hard" is what I'm thinking when trying to open a new jar of pickles. "Fast" is what I wanna do with my golf swing.

Just saw a video with a 200 mph+ ball speed wrxer and he made the analogy of a cup. The speed work being the water and then your body being the cup. You have to build a bigger more athletic "cup" in the gym to be able to go further with the speed work once you hit plateaus. Kind of like trying to put a 500 hp motor in a toyota corrolla. It just isn't going to work. So once you've hit a training cycle plateau it's time to step back and make your body bigger, faster, and stronger then resume the speed work.

Let's not forget one of the biggest things Bryson did as part of his process -- he got a lot stronger.

 

Speed training is for gaining speed.

Strength training is for allowing your body to handle the speed (i.e. injury prevention).

 

Doing just one of them might lead to short term improvements, but unless you are already strong as an ox, doing one but not the other is likely going to be counter-productive in the long run.

 

Continued speed training without building strength will likely lead to injury.  If you are lucky, your brain won't let you get faster and you'll be stuck at a plateau before getting injured.  

 

Continued strength training without speed training might improve your speed initially, but eventually it might cause a regression in speed.

 

Bottom line is that your body adapts to a continued stimulus, but there is almost always a tradeoff in doing so.  If you want to get faster and not injure yourself, you should also have a plan to get stronger.
