Member Question:

Hello Jaacob,

Can you please tell me of your thoughts you have on the ” Hand Speed Trainer ” for golf?

Also, if you have any thoughts on the “Ultimate Swing Trainer” by Mike Bauman, I would be glad to hear them.

All the best, Ray S, 67 years old, 24 handicap, United Kingdom

Jaacob’s Answer:

Personally, I’ve never tried the Hand Speed Trainer (

However, near as I can tell it would fit in to the general category of heavy training aids…where you add weight to whatever you are swinging. It looks similar to the Weighted Agility Gloves.

If you end up using this, make sure to use it for swinging fast. You don’t want to build strength but have it be slow-twitch muscle strength and thus offset any power gains you might otherwise get by getting stronger.

With the Ultimate Swing Trainer, I must also say that I’ve never tried one, however, I don’t think I would ever get one based on their main video. It looks like it’s only one band…

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
