The Transformer Bar by Kabuki Strength is the industry’s first multi-functional, adjustable barbell allowing for 48 different positions and squat variations. We’ve designed a variable bracket system that allows for adjustment to both camber height and angle relative to the bar itself.This versatility means we can change and improve spinal mechanics and related loading upstream and downstream, eliciting different training effects, fine tune it for an individual athlete, improve rehabilitation efforts or mimic squat patterns such as back squat, front squat, goblet squats, any safety squat bar, or dozens of other gradients of these loading patterns.It is the most comfortable and ergonomically designed bar on the market, eliminating pressure points through its contoured shape where it rests on the shoulders. Improved lat engagement from the positioning of the handles will increase spinal stability at the T/L junction reducing injury risk.Our philosophy at Kabuki Strength is to design, engineer, and manufacture innovative equipment that pushes the boundaries of human performance and strength.In this video you can hear Dr. Kelly Starrett, Dr. Stuart McGill and Eric Cressey discuss the Transformer Bar and their experiences with it.Transformer Bar is available for purchase at kabukistrength.com: https://store.kabukistrength.net/collections/bars/products/transformer-bar...

My Background, I am a Chiropractor and have been in practice for over 26 years I specialize in movement restoration and rehabilitation based on the Neurodevelopmental Model using a variety of Movement Assessment tools that look for Dysfunction. I have been a Martial Artist for 31 years, lots of different styles but primarily Wing Chun Kung Fu. Only in the past few years have I gotten interested in Powerlifting thanks to an introduction to Marty Gallagher from some friends in Kettlebell world.

The importance of the background is to bring to light, that I had a lot of tools at my disposal and a lot of great coaches. But, for some reason there was a disconnect between my 4 worlds: Clinical Practice, Martial Arts, Kettlebells and PowerLifting. Chris at the KMS was able to tie all of that up for me and help me end two years of pain and frustration.

Stan "Rhino" Efferding is the world's strongest bodybuilder, with a 2300lb RAW total in the 275lb weight class. In his wildly popular "Rhino Rhants" series, Stan goes over some thoughts and experiences that he has had and shares them with his large follower base in a very clear, concise, and logical way. [wpdevart_youtube width="640" height="385" autoplay="0" theme="dark" loop_video="0" enable_fullscreen="1" show_related="1" show_popup="0" thumb_popup_width="213" thumb_popup_height="128" show_title="1" show_youtube_icon="1" show_annotations="1" show_progress_bar_color="red" autohide_parameters="1" set_initial_volume="false" initial_volume="100" disable_keyboard="0"]LCagbUS0nQ[/wpdevart_youtube]Video Outline:0:00 - The Kooler! 1:42 - The Steel Curtain2:40 - Free Weights vs. Machines3:45 - Recovery: The harder shit is far more effective than the easier shit6:09 - Chris Duffin and Kelly Starrett  "These methods by Dr. Jones, Kelly Starrett, and Chris Duffin are intended to allow your joints to move unimpinged through their full range of motion."7:10 - Active Recovery - the best method to recover from hard training7:40 - "Chris Duffin's Shoulderok is a great example of an active recovery method, and joint strengthening method.

In this video Chris Duffin and Kelly Starrett discuss the application of the Boom Stick as well as provide a tutorial on its use.  They show how this tool can be used on a partner in a safe manner to release excessive tension to improve recovery, mobility, and reduce potential injuries.While only one spot was hit with the tool on Kelly for a very short demonstration period he achieved a result from its use. They also review the purpose behind the tools specific knurling that is used for shearing the fascia in a very effective manner.  Needless to say Kelly is a huge fan of the Boom Stick in his facility along with the Geisha Roller....

Chris at the DMS was able to tie all of that up for me and help me end two years of pain and frustration. Part 1: My Shoulder Dislocation and Two Years of Frustration to Recovery I had just set a national record in my age weight class for a raw squat for 420 lbs. My shoulder was a little tight so I planned to keep the bench light and murder the Dead Lift. Unfortunately, my shoulder gave out on the bench at 275 lbs., a weight I could rep for sets of 5 in training. That was it for me that day and for a long time to come. At the time of the injury I was in a bit of pain but mostly in shock as to why this had happened. I really didn’t get the answer to that until just a few weeks ago at the Duffin Movement System certification (More on that later).   The only input I did get was from Kirk Karwoski who said, “Your...
