This is a series of speed drills and instructions to help any athlete learn to run faster with less effort. Speed is a crucial element to any sport. The faster, more controlled athlete will win the play. Strength is great but if you put your foot in the wrong position then you can't run any faster. This series is not about working harder. This series is about how and what to think about while in motion or "The Psychology of Speed." It's about focusing on the accuracy and timing of body movement through time and space using earth physics.
I am Kenneth Taylor, the Speed Dr. This course will take students through the basics of training for speed. This is not about conditioning drills or reps and sets, it's about learning. This course will show, in addition to sprint mechanics, general warm up drills that support the elements needed to run faster with optimal efficiency. This course will also show many agility drills that are basic human movements that translate from sport to sport and help improve the speed of footwork, balance, coordination and thought patterns.

Ken earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Oregon State University in Exercise and Sports Science, Exercise Physiology, and Biomechanical Movement. He has earned many awards including PAC-10 All-Academic Team 1982, 1983, and 1984 and was the PAC-10 Scholar-Athlete Medal Winner for 1984 representing track and football. Since 1988 Ken has worked with more than 5,000 athletes. It's great to train like the pros. Ken is a former NFL athlete from the 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Championship team and the San Diego Chargers. Ken was also a world-class track athlete specializing the sprints and triple jump.
Ken specializes in helping the athlete understand his or her genetic potential through muscle physiology and movement biomechanics. He uses very unique communication techniques that help the athlete to understand what moving well should "feel" like and helps them master the ability of “What to move, Where to move, and When to move." The result is a spiraling chain reaction of positive confidence within each athlete that helps them strive for more. He goes deeper than just hard work. It's about the "psychology of speed." The athlete is taught how to think well while in motion. Ken is the author of two critically acclaimed books: "You Just Can’t Teach That! Or Can You?”& “How Fast Are You? You Cam Be Faster”
Ken puts aside the old way of thinking and shows there is a smarter and easier way of making real improvement to running and speed. I have to say, it was almost embarrassing how easily and quickly improvement can be made when Ken’s techniques are applied.
