Today\u2019s guest is 罗比·伯克, host of the \u201cAll Things Strength and Wellness\u201d podcast.\u00a0 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\u2019s podcast over the last year, I\u2019m 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.\u00a0 It\u2019s 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.\u00a0 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.\u00a0 Additionally, in this podcast, Robbie covers ideas on high-low, or the \u201cbarbell method\u201d of training (Taleb), individualizing factors in training, training the nervous system, and periodization and training residuals. It\u2019s always great talking with Robbie, and this was a wonderful conversation on many training topics of interest that are often hot with debate.

Key Points: \tRobbie\u2019s background and education in the human performance industry \tThoughts on isometric training for athletic performance in light of old and new ideologies \tThe \u201cbarbell principle\u201d of attacking training in general, and specific movements from both ends of the spectrum \tIndividualization factors in performance training \tThoughts on the application of delayed training effects and periodization \u201cWe 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\u201d \u201cStrength training and all the exercises and means of strength training are just means, they are just one way to do it\u201d \u201cIf the brain feels the body cannot produce force because a joint is in a bad position, it will not allow you to produce force\u201d \u201cIt\u2019s a universal principle to attack training from both ends of the spectrum\u201d \u201cThe speed continuum for track and field does not carry over to field-based athletes\u201d \u201cWe train everything, but it\u2019s an emphasis based model\u201d \u201cTraining residuals are the holy grail of training, and they are so individual to the person\u201d \u201cDue to delayed training effects, it\u2019s definitely still worth having a sequential order in your periodization\u201d \u201cThe more neurological the sport is, the more training residuals might be less of a factor\u201d About 罗比·伯克 罗比·伯克 is a Strength and Conditioning Coach, Neuromuscular and Physical Therapist, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, and Holistic Health and Wellness Practitioner based in Glasnevin, Dublin.
