Response to Speed Chain Testing Has Begun!

 

Seems strange to train speed with something heavy like the speed chain. I used one a few times last year and did not see much benefit. It may be good for someone with very little to no lag, but I don't see how you learn to move fast with that heavy chain.

The problem with your test is that you are doing so many different programs at the same time that it will be hard to know what helped and what hurt your progress.

Running, biking, and raquetball helped me the most. Weight training did not seem to help with distance. There is no question that overall fitness would help one hit the ball better, but for speed I would learn to move fast, not slow.
