Robbie Bourke on Building Explosive Power with Jumps and Throws

Play
Read more

Robbie Bourke is a physical preparation coach from Ireland who focuses on Gaelic sports such as Gaelic football and hurling.

I first met Robbie years ago at a seminar I did in Dublin, but we’d interacted for years online before that. Robbie is a very inquisitive guy, and peppered me with great questions over the course of the weekend.

In this show, Robbie and I talk about his two pronged philosophy on athletic development, the various jump and med ball progressions he uses to develop power with his athletes, and the differences between drop jumps and depths jumps.

This is a really fun show, and I guarantee you’ll learn a thing or two from Robbie.

Show Outline

Here’s a brief overview of what we covered in this week’s show:

  • MR’s Monologue: My Top 5 Training Books (and the difference between “Grazing” and “Mining” information).
  • What originally led Robbie to the world of physical preparation.
  • An an overview of his training philosophy, and his two-pronged approach to athletic development.
  • A breakdown and overview of the different types of jumps he uses with his athlete
  • How he classifies the various types of med ball throws he uses.
  • Incorporating and implementing both jumps and throws into your training program.
  • Training volume and set/rep schemes to help you maximize performance
  • The BIG Question
  • A really fun lightning round where we talk about his career highlight as a coach, the books he’s reading right now, his favorite US city (so far), and what’s next for Robbie Bourke.

68: Robbie Bourke: Isometrics, Periodization and Holistic Performance | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Play
Read more
Today’s guest is Robbie Bourke, host of the “All Things Strength and Wellness” podcast.  Robbie is a Strength and Conditioning Coach, Neuromuscular and Physical Therapist, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, and Holistic Health and Wellness Practitioner based in Glasnevin, Dublin.

In listening to Robbie’s podcast over the last year, I’m really amazed by the amount, and diversity of knowledge that he has in realms of not only sports performance, but also nutrition, physiology, psychology, and more.  It’s always been my own quest to be well rounded, so seeing another podcast host younger than myself with the knowledge that Robbie has is inspiring.

In talking to Robbie recently, we both realized that we were both excited about learning more about the same training modality: isometrics.  Although a method as old as time, Robbie and I both think that many coaches and athletes are missing out by not considering this method in their regimes.  Additionally, in this podcast, Robbie covers ideas on high-low, or the “barbell method” of training (Taleb), individualizing factors in training, training the nervous system, and periodization and training residuals.

It’s always great talking with Robbie, and this was a wonderful conversation on many training topics of interest that are often hot with debate.

Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.

Key Points:

Robbie’s background and education in the human performance industry
Thoughts on isometric training for athletic performance in light of old and new ideologies
The “barbell principle” of attacking training in general, and specific movements from both ends of the spectrum
Individualization factors in performance training
Thoughts on the application of delayed training effects and periodization
“We know that this neural component of being able to activate and recruit motor units is a huge part of increasing biological output in terms of strength and how much force we can produce”

“Strength training and all the exercises and means of strength training are just means, they are just one way to do it”

“If the brain feels the body cannot produce force because a joint is in a bad position, it will not allow you to produce force”

“It’s a universal principle to attack training from both ends of the spectrum”

“The speed continuum for track and field does not carry over to field-based athletes”

“We train everything, but it’s an emphasis based model”

“Training residuals are the holy grail of training, and they are so individual to the person”

“Due to delayed training effects, it’s definitely still worth having a sequential order in your periodization”

“The more neurological the sport is, the more training residuals might be less of a factor”
