“Who Else Wants Access to a Speed Training System That Had a High School Senior Shock the World Racing to National Records and World Leading Sprint Times… At the Young Age of 17?”
Discover how this underground system eliminates traditional speed and strength training methods and will have your athletes running faster forever, changing the way you approach speed training
Dear Coaches, Parents, Trainers and Athletes:
You have seen the teams and athletes that always seem to make it to the desired place faster than everyone else haven’t you?
Heck, you may even be the coach or athlete that is sick and tired of seeing the competition pass you by.
Whether it’s getting to the finish line, the soccer ball or to the basket they are simply moving at a speed faster than the rest of the competition (that means you), and most likely having more success than the rest of the competition too.
It’s almost as if those athletes are playing with a loaded deck of cards, and they are….
But what if I told you that there is a secret to running (and moving) faster. And if you knew what that secret was you will have your teams and athletes turning magic tricks on them.
Knowing this secret sure worked magic for a 17 year old High School Senior (but we’ll come back to that later).
So then what is it…
What is The Secret to running faster?
Every coach, trainer, and athlete should know or at least be looking for this answer. However, the hard part is finding the correct answer. That’s because there is mass confusion as to what the correct answer is.
There are so many different philosophies circulating the internet and speed development communities via books, videos and websites, and they all claim to have the ideal method to improve speed. But, how do you know who or what to believe when there are so many theories out there?
Let’s touch on some of those methods…..
SPEED TRAINING METHOD MYTH #1:
Using various speed drills to address running biomechanics will make you faster.
You may hear the claim that by teaching different speed drills to address faulty running mechanics you will improve or increase speed in an athlete. But there are so many overly complicated drills how are you to know which speed drills are actually helping with form or perpetuating more inefficient techniques?
But an even more important question is when are speed drills performed at the high rates that occur when running at top speed?
Well then how are speed drills suppose to help fix inefficient running patterns to achieve faster running when the body never performs it in that manner?
The mind will not connect the form training techniques that are emphasized through the speed drills when they are never performed at the correct rate of speed. So the time spent teaching all of these highly proclaimed speed drills just becomes more of a waste of time and overcomplicates the training process more than it has to, when we only want results.
SPEED TRAINING METHOD MYTH #2:
Running long intervals and building a base make you run faster.
You will see this one in a lot of speed training programs. Running long intervals to build a base may sound good in theory however, one can only get faster when they are training the body to run faster and this has to be done at high speeds.
Since running long intervals and building a base are done at speeds a great deal slower than the top speeds you are looking to achieve, this method will not have you running at faster speeds, though it may have you in good condition.
And even that can be done differently.
SPEED TRAINING METHOD MYTH #3:
Focusing on middle intensity work to build speed.
Middle intensity work will be done at middle, not HIGH intensity. When you are in a race what good is running at middle intensities going to do?
The body is going to get use to running at that middle intensity and when you want to call on it for the high speeds you need for success in a race, your body will not know how to do that at an optimum level.
Repeats at middle intensities may increase the amount of work the body can handle but we aren’t talking about handling more work, we are talking about getting the work that has to be done, done as FAST AS POSSIBLE!
Heavy lifting for strength, light lifting for power. Horizonral force, vertical force. Use Olympic lifts, don’t use Olympic lifts/ Focus on increasing stride length. No focus on stride frequency…..
You get the idea.
All of these methods and theories make some good points, however when strictly talking about what to do to when it comes to getting someone to run faster they’ve got it all wrong, and chances are you have it wrong too.
That just is not possible, you may say to yourself.
I use and or know lots of coaches, programs and resources that use these methods and seem to be getting impressive results
It simply can’t be true that they’re all missing the point.
Here’s the problem...
The focus of speed coaches and athletes is on changing the numbers within the framework they know. It’s about finding magic or secret numbers- what number of repeats of a distance, how many plyo jumps on the track, how many rest days, what number of hard days, how many recovery days, etc. There is never a challenge to the framework, only to the numbers that are provided.
Now here’s the truth….
There is no purpose to using that type of training.
That’s right. Most coaches rely on purposeless training to develop their athletes.
Let me explain…
Doing something is better than nothing. And that’s why maybe you, those coaches and athletes appear to be getting results.
But, it’s all smoke and mirrors. Because they’re all making it more complicated than it has to be.
You see, The Secret to running faster is simple. It’s so simple you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself.
And The Secret works the same regardless of age, sport, gender or skill level.
The Secret isn’t about intervals on the track. And it’s not about the weight room.
So what is The Secret to faster running for every athlete?
It’s about addressing a paradigm change in training to run faster that is long overdue. It’s about the science of sprinting and the elimination of the rampant guessing as to what actually happens during high speed sprinting.
Revealed! The Underground Secrets to Faster Running…
Barry Ross’ new coaching resource, Underground Secrets to Faster Running, fully addresses one of the most (if not the most) important aspects of running faster:
The effect of mass-specific force on running speed.
It goes on to describe a very simple yet powerful training method that will result in faster running, even if most of the standard on track training protocols were significantly reduced or eliminated.
You read that right. Most traditional training should be Reduced or Eliminated.
And the same reduction and elimination holds true in the weight room.
If you want your athletes to maximize their speed, then you need to completely change the way you train them. And that means you’re going to have to cut out most (if not all) of what you are currently doing.
I know it’s hard to believe. But the proof is in the pudding…
Here is Barry Ross’ most accomplished success story…
In 2003, Allyson Felix, a 17 year old high school senior, broke Marion Jones’ National High School Record at 200 meters with a time of 22.51 seconds and ultimately ran the fastest time in the World that year.
She accomplished all this following the exact same principles found in Barry Ross’ Underground Secrets to Faster Running book.
It’s a simple yet very effective training system, that is void of Olympic lifts that many claim need to be apart of a speed and power athletes program.
To give you an idea of how simple the program is, Allyson raced her way to national records and world-wide publicity using only one…you read that right….ONE exercise lift!
Now who wouldn’t want to know how using ONE lift can dramatically improve the success you are having on the track or field?
But let’s break it down further.
The primary factor in faster running is the ability to generate and transmit muscular force into the ground. Not just any amount of force will do. Because there is one force constantly working against you….Gravity.
Gravity exerts the major influence on both horizontal and vertical forces exerted against the ground.
So it stands to reason if you want athletes to get faster, they must get stronger in order to overcome the forces of gravity and move the body forward faster.
But it’s not that simple...
Most athletes (and their coaches) believe that the only way to increase strength is to increase muscle mass.
After all, more mass = more muscle = more strength = more force applied to the ground.
At least that is how athletes are being trained in most athletic programs.
But simple science tells us that more mass = more gravitational pull. It means body mass is working against you.
How to Convert Strength to Speed…
"I’ve seen dramatic gains from using Coach Ross’
“I’ve seen dramatic gains from using Coach Ross’ strength program, including higher knee effect from greater ground force. The effect has improved hill climbing, running economy and overall speed in my cross country runners. We even use the weight training system as warm up prior to our harder running workouts.”
Of course this doesn’t entirely answer your questions. It still leaves out the biggest piece of the puzzle…
How does this new information affect how you structure your athletes’ running workouts? Must you also make wholesale changes to your speed training program?
It goes back to the purposeless training discussed before. Because that’s what your current system of improving speed is. Excessive. And purposeless.
And if that is the case (and it is) then the fundamental question is this:
What is the purpose of training for speed on the track (or field or court)?
Well there are really only 2 purposes for on-track training:
Neuromuscular adaptation and plyometric training.
Simply put, neuromuscular training teaches your athletes’ bodies to adapt to high speed movements without loss of energy. And you can only do that by having them run at top (or near top) speed as often as possible. This type of training needs to be the foundation of your speed development program.
But that’s not new information to you, is it?
Either way, you had better keep reading.
"Training through a long season now gives me little concern
“The advantage gained by the time spent in the weight room using Coach Ross’ system is the early adaptation to high intensity workouts on the track. Training for high speed can occur much earlier and continue throughout a long season with little concern about injury.”
"Proof is in the numbers, players are stronger and faster."
“The workout is very efficient and easy to do. The proof is in the numbers, the results are there. The players are faster and stronger.”
Tim Von Busch
Well what about plyometric training?
It is defined as a movement causing a rapid change from eccentric contraction (lengthening a muscle) to concentric contraction (shortening a muscle), in which elastic energy is stored and released.
The act of running fast is a plyometric exercise, so it trains for the storage and release of elastic energy. Elastic energy is a necessary part of increasing your athletes’ speed.
But how much running should your athletes do?
As much as is effective in increasing their speed.
After all, the number and length of repeats should be different for each runner, and they must have a specific length and measurable goal if they are to be effective. Either specific time/distance or distance/time goals work best.
If someone is telling you to run x number of repeats at x distance, ask them why that number and that distance. Ask them how it would specifically benefit your particular needs and demand an answer with specific number goals, such as maximum completion time per rep.
If you’re a coach, ask the same question on behalf of your athletes before you give them a workout, or shame on you!
When running speed decreases to a point below the goal over a set distance, or distance covered decreases to a point below the goal over a set time, their workout should end.
But stopping when goals can no longer be met is not new information. You already do that. Right? Sort of?
This means a running workout could be very long.
Or very short.
But how do you accurately determine the specifics of times, reps and distances?
That depends on the athlete, event and goals of the workout.
What about rest times between repeats?
Here’s a hint. And it applies to workouts on the track and the weight room…
It’s all about the phosphagen pool.
And answers to all the above questions are revealed in Underground Secrets to Faster Running.
But what about problems with running form, what about sleds, hill running or weight vests to increase strength? How about increasing stride length and stride frequency? How do you fix arm swing, improve upper body strength or stop over striding?
It’s all addressed on the track/field/court or in the weight room.
It’s all answered in the book Underground Secrets to Faster Running.
You see, strength training and on-track training are simple.
The protocol of Underground Secrets to Faster Running treats them as that. Instead of inventing new lifts or using lifts based upon false information, its focus is solely on what is really needed to run faster. It takes many of the training aspects of on-track training inside the weight room, thus shortening and laser focusing that protocol as well.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
And Barry Ross’ Underground Secrets to Faster Running resource will change the way you train your athletes.
You’ll be amazed by the ‘common sense’ approach to training for speed and strength.
If you work with large groups of athletes, you know how difficult it is to coordinate all the drills, skills and exercises of the typical practice. Add teaching and supervising strength training and it’s nearly impossible to accomplish your daily goals.
Broken down into easy to read language, charts and graphs, Underground Secrets to Faster Running successfully challenges conventional theory. In this must have resource, here is just a sample of what you will discover:
Latif Thomas recently interviewed Barry Ross on how to

What lengths are you willing to go to, or what feeling would it give you to see the look on your athletes face when they have run a personal best? How about when the interest letters start coming in the mail from college and university programs vying for them to be apart of their program?
What about achieving one of the four fastest times to make the coveted relay team? You cannot truthfully admit that those feelings won’t be worth more than a mere $37 dollars for the cost of the Underground Secrets to Faster Running.
The information you gain from the Underground Secrets to Running Faster system will give you the results you are looking and it will also cut out time you spend on guessing and overcomplicating your coaching strategies therefore making life much easier.
The methods described and written out for you to implement are so successful because they are back by years of scientific research. Barry Ross has a long list of athletes that he has tested his system out on for many years and is now willing to pass this information on to you.
That’s years that you don’t have to dedicate to research, that would take time away from making your athletes better now.
Mind you, one session alone with Barry, during which he would take you through a workout covered in the Underground Secrets to Faster Running would cost you more than double the cost of this program. So you will not find a better opportunity.
The cost of the system is a little more than a dollar a day for one month. A month that you would be implementing the methods and helping your athletes run faster and perform better.
That’s less than what you pay to go and watch other athletes demonstrate the speed and athleticism that you so desperately wish you or your athletes had.
Stop watching others speed by and act on an opportunity for you to be the one speeding by.
