SuperSpeed Golf - Increasing Swing Speed for Junior Golfers
Last week, the GLT Golf blog examined SuperSpeed Golf and their line of speed training products. Today, we’ll take a closer look at the SuperSpeed Juniors line.
Just as the standard SuperSpeed training set, the SuperSpeed Juniors line helps golfers hit the ball father by swinging faster, not hitting harder, through the use of overspeed training, a process that creates faster than normal speed during a known motor pattern (in the case of SuperSpeed Golf, a golf swing.)
You may be asking why an emphasis on swing speed should be placed upon junior golfers. If so, GLT and AJ Academy coach Arick Zeigel has an answer for you.
“Speed and distance off the tee is an overwhelmingly popular topic in the golf world as we see PGA Tour players hitting the ball miles week in and week out,” says Zeigel. “Especially knowing that the average club speed coming out of DI colleges is actually higher than the PGA Tour places a huge emphasis on developing speed as a junior. Implementing the SuperSpeed Golf training protocols into your training not only helps junior golfers develop strength and the ability to hit the ball farther, but it also helps them actively discover sources of power including how to better use the ground to leverage speed which has technical benefits as well as fundamental athletic movement benefits.”
