Can HulkHogan swing fast? Can BigShow? Can MarkArnold swing fast?
Agreed. I'm swinging 10x faster then i was 2-3 yrs ago. My coach likes us to get a 5-10lb weight and shadow swing for 5 mins. He says it helps us utilize our core better, and it's worked for me.

Personally though, I'd say shadowswing while watching your form in a mirror. Swing fast but not uncontrollably fast. Make sure you like how your form looks in the mirror, and it's technically correct. Swing slow when you're trying to fix technique, and repeating good technique while shadowswinging is good too.
