Everyone seems to make the mistake that increasing/maximising RHS means swinging with 90% effort instead of 70% on every shot.

On the contrary, it actually means that the player should go off and focus on developing their co-ordination, strength and timing so that their maximum natural swing speed increases. This allows the player to keep swinging at a controlled 70% effort with increased RHS. After all 70% for someone with a 80mph swing is much quicker than 70% for someone with a 50mph maximum swing .
