ADVANCED SPEED DEVELOPMENT TRAINING - 3
WRIST MECHANICS – ASD3 SPRINT
During the level 3 protocol, at week 20, we recommend you start identifying where you might be leaking in speed. We created this so you can work on your individual weaknesses to personalize and optimize your speed training. SuperSpeed’s 3 major components of speed are ground forces, sequencing, and lag. We have created manual tests to measure each component to determine if you need to implement an ASD protocol into your training program once per week.
- Test for each component of speed using the manual tests described below.
- For each test you fail, implement the ASD protocol one day per week. Continue to perform level 3 protocol for the remaining 2 days per week. Once you pass the test you can stop performing the ASD protocol.
- If you fail more than one test, start with ASD-1 protocol and then once you pass that test you can move onto implementing ASD-2 and then ASD-3 protocols.
Record a video from face on with a driver using your mobile device. Slow motion is the best setting to use. Use drawing tools on your device to measure the angle between your forearm and wrist. Measure at the top of the backswing and the start of the downswing, If the angle increases as they start the downswing you need to work on your lag.
If you don’t see any lag, replace one SuperSpeed training session per week with the ASD3 Sprint protocol. You can stop performing this ASD protocol when you pass the test.
