A NOTE ON SCREW TIGHTENING
ALWAYS test the screw the first time before attaching the training head. Simply remove the driver head and insert the screw to test.
When attaching the training head and tightening the screw, you do not need to tighten until you hear a "click" on your driver torque wrench. The screw only needs to be tightened slightly. Overtightening may break the screw.

Warming up before training is crucial to preventing injury AND ensuring your muscles and joints are prepared and able to give their full capacity to training. Failing to warm-up properly is not only unsafe, it will prevent you from maximizing your speed gains.
Complete the following warmup to get ready for a round of golf or before a practice session.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU TRAIN?
The answer to this question depends on you and your ability to have the time to train. Ideally, you would train three days per week with a day of rest in between. For more competitive golfers, we recommend working with your coaches to figure out the best overspeed training schedule for you.
At a minimum, you'll want to train two days per week to generate swing speed gains.
If you are taking a break from overspeed training, we recommend training at least once a week to maintain your swing speed gains.
THE MOST IMPORTANT TRAINING TIP
When it comes to overspeed training, there is one hard and fast rule that you must follow to get every ounce of speed possible out of your training...CHECK YOUR SWING THOUGHTS AND MECHANICS AT THE DOOR!
If there is one surefire way to slow your golf swing down, it's to have any thoughts as to your swing mechanics. Instead, solely focus on maximizing your swing speed right in front of your radar, at a tee on the ground, a towel, or whatever you have handy. Make sure something is in the same spot your ball would be if tee'd up and focus on maximizing your head speed at that spot.
Internal thoughts only serve to slow us down. Don't worry about looking pretty, worry about swinging as fast as possible!
OVERSPEED TRAINING PROGRAMMING
HAND/ARM SPEED TRAINING
In addition to standard overspeed training, we've created an overspeed based hand and arm speed training program. This program can be added to or done in replacement of the overspeed training program. To add to your overspeed training program, just replace one of your overspeed training days with the hand/arm speed training. To replace the overspeed training program, just complete this program 2 - 3 days per week as you would the overspeed training program.
While doing arm/hand speed training, make sure you are focusing on moving the club with your ARMS AND HANDS as fast as possible.
We recommend throwing this into your training between speed training sessions and on separate days. The training is simple. Add all of the rings, minus the three black rings, onto the training head.
TEMPO TRAININGIf you're someone that struggles with your sequencing, has a slow back swing, or stops at the top, this training is going to be a game changer for your speed AND consistency. In order to stay balanced during this training, you must move with great efficiency and tempo, two things present in great swings. Loading up the training head, though not a lot of weight, will challenge you to move more efficiently with your feet together. The focus here is on learning to move with tempo and then speeding that tempo up over time while remaining balanced.
