19-20 Thorne ACP Podcast #1 with Keenan Robinson

Read more

The first Thorne ACP Podcast of the 19-20 season is now available, featuring the Director of Sports Medicine and Science at USA Swimming – Keenan Robinson.

Coach Robinson will be presenting at the December edition of the Thorne ACP. He is responsible for evaluating injury epidemiology in National Team swimmers, identifying risk factors, and streamlining medical care for Team USA swimmers to reduce training time loss or surgical procedures.

Well known for being the physical preparation coach of Michael Phelps, Keenan is an NATABOC certified athletic trainer and NSCA certified strength and conditioning coach. He has served as medical staff on both Olympic and World Championship teams, bringing a unique skill set to the sport through both performance and medicine.

In this podcast Keenan, and host – Ellie Spain – discuss:

  • How Keenan’s experiences and multiple roles influence his perspectives.
  • The specific KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) necessary to succeed as a swimmer from a physical preparation perspective, and how these can be addressed without detracting from the technical / water work.
  • The evaluation and implementation of physiological and biological measures, and how these inform his decision making process and programming.
  • The mundanity of excellence.
  • What other sports can learn from swimming in terms of physically preparing performers.

18: Keenan Robinson | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Read more
This week’s guest is Keenan Robinson, national team high performance director for USA Swimming.   Keenan is a coach who is fusing modern S&C and sports medicine practices with swim performance, and has worked with prominent swim programs such as The University of Michigan, North Baltimore Aquatic Club, and Arizona State University, not to mention being the 2016 head athletic trainer for the USA Olympic contingent in Rio.  He is also the strength coach for Michael Phelps, arguably the most successful Olympic athlete of all time.

The world of strength training for swimmers is emerging quickly, yet hardly gets the discussion and social media presence that strength for other popular sports, such as football, basketball, baseball or general speed training harness.  I’m excited to host Keenan on today’s episode, as I hope it to facilitate some important discussions in the field that can lead to healthier, and faster athletes in the water.

I know that many coaches who listen to this podcast may not work with aquatic athletes, but I have found over the years that the challenge of learning what makes aquatic athletes fast from a functional, dryland perspective, makes you look “under the hood” into the subsystems, and deep stabilization network of the body more than any other sport, and forces an honest diagnosis of training transfer on a regular basis.  It also brings up great lines of discussion as to the ideas of general, specific, and coordinative aspects of training transfer and athletic well-being.

I believe there is a good reason why all athletes (those looking to do other sports in high school/college) should have some experience swimming at a young age before they move along the path of specialization.

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:

Keenan’s background and journey in the world of swim dryland strength and performance
The number one thing that makes swim athletes different than land, and how coaches should keep this in mind when working with them in a resistance training setting
Are there things in the weight room that successful aquatic athletes are generally better at than mediocre aquatic athletes?
How much strength is enough when training various swim strokes and distances in terms of some common swimming lifts, such as weighted pull-ups, or front squats
Keenan’s take on training specific positions or movements in the weight room
One thing Keenan would change that is commonly performed in aquatic strength programs
Keenan’s take on stretching for swimmers
The best approach to shoulder stability and preventing shoulder issues in swimming
“The major difference (between swimming and land based athletes) is we are a sport that trains 11 months, 3 weeks out of a year.  There is no real off-season”

“The fish-out-of-water is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me… athleticism is athleticism.” “A back-to-breast turn is all athletic movement”

“The minimal effective dose of strength training has to coincide with the dose being applied in the water”

“(Regarding lifts that good swimmers can/should do well) I think vertical pulls (pullups, etc.)”

“For a while, I thought I had a relationship between posterior chain strength and our best kickers, but now, scratch that, we go back to their anthropometric factors, ankle range of motion, and those who have had been given kicking early on in their development as a swimmer, those are the best kickers”

“(Positional “Specific” dryland training) what we do is work on stabilization of those body parts while the extremities are moving” “Making sure I can go through body segments and make sure that it is in accordance to what their limitations are from an anatomical standpoint and segments thoughout the spine”
