Watch the intro video above for a brief introduction on what this project is all about and why we are doing it. Scroll down to see every 800 pound squat, day-by-day, along with the vertical bar speed of each squat!

My name is Chris Duffin and I am the Co-Founder of Kabuki Strength.  This is the #800everyday fundraiser for Special Olympics Oregon.

Kabuki Strength is an organization deeply devoted to optimizing human ability + performance via original equipment, research-based education, and world-class coaching.

Our mission and vision is to help make the world a better place through strength. We deeply believe that the pursuit of strength – physical, mental, and emotional – is a virtuous and rewarding endeavor to all who undertake it.

Cassandra La Madrid, one of our coaches here at Kabuki Strength, volunteers as a powerlifting coach for Special Olympics Oregon and with her leadership, we want to do our part to help this incredible group of athletes and the SO organization.

This fundraising campaign and feat of strength is an effort to raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics organization in Oregon, with the end goal of eventually hosting a Special Olympics Powerlifting Fundraising Meet here at Kabuki Strength Lab later this year.

I will be squatting at least 800 pounds every day for 30 days, taking a single rest day every week.

Please share this page with your friends, share each of the #800everyday videos, and donate to this awesome cause.

Thank you,

Chris Duffin and Kabuki Strength


#800EveryDay is Complete!

Day 26 – .24m/s

I was really worried going into this am session of #800EveryDay Squats. Between pain, fatigue, and stacking the sessions 15hrs apart I was second guessing myself. But it ended up great boost in my moral. With all the work I have been doing it ended up being the most pain free session in last 1.5 weeks.

Day 11 – .29m/s

#800EveryDay day 11 for Special Olympics fundraiser & awareness. I’ve had a lot of questions about my warmup so thought I would show what I’m doing. The following is my general preparation right now. It may vary a bit based on the day’s needs. It is a little different approach than normal but I’m trying to get everything primed as possible with the least amount of work and least amount of reps on warmups. This will keep the cumulative load for the month down. The Hip Airplane I’ve published before and continues to be a good prep move for Control of the hip on it natural plane working adductors and glutes in balance with each other. Try not to rotate at the torso and put all movement in the hip with a solid braced core. The ShouldeRok swings open up my shoulders, prime my stabilization and connect it from hips to feet. Finally I finish with a few sets over the course of warmups with ShouldeRok anti-rotation drills. This really fires up the stabilization through the oblique sling which is needed with my minimalist warmup. 55×10, 255×3,3, 455×1, 595×1, 705×1, 800×1. ***PLUG*** All these drill can be found on www.kabuki.ms and of course the ShouldeRok is available on our site! Today was one of worse sessions. Mostly due to lack of sleep last night and training early on a rushed schedule today. Saw the impact on both speed and depth.

Day 7 – No Video – .37m/2

Day 6 – .34m/s

2 more days till I announce the agenda behind #800EveryDay Today was the fastest yet at .37m/s but I expect that to level out and start dropping in the coming week as fatigue begins to accumulate. 22 days remaining… ••••• Thanks for supporting Kabuki Strength, and helping make the world a better place through strength! ••••• www.kabuki.ms www.kabukistrength.com ••••• #ChrisDuffin #kabukistrength #kabukistrengthlab #kabukimovementsystems #MoveBetter #Powerlifting #barbell #bar #powerbar #MadScientist #ShouldeRok #Duffalo #SquatBar #AntiFragile #elitefts @elitefts #shoulderhealth #shoulder #powerbuilding #strength #strengthtraining #squat #bench #deadlift #rehab #evidencebased #boomstick @kabukistrengthlab #acumobility @acumobility @ks_virtualcoaching •••••

Day 5 – .32m/s

#800EveryDay for the fastest squat since I started. Was hitting .23 m/s when I started this over a week ago and up to .32m/s. I expect some ups and downs with what I’m doing right now but I’ll take wins when I get them. ••••• Thanks for supporting Kabuki Strength, and helping make the world a better place through strength! ••••• www.kabuki.ms www.kabukistrength.com ••••• #ChrisDuffin #kabukistrength #kabukistrengthlab #kabukimovementsystems #MoveBetter #Powerlifting #barbell #bar #powerbar #MadScientist #ShouldeRok #Duffalo #SquatBar #AntiFragile #elitefts @elitefts #shoulderhealth #shoulder #powerbuilding #strength #strengthtraining #squat #bench #deadlift #rehab #evidencebased #boomstick @kabukistrengthlab #acumobility @acumobility @ks_virtualcoaching •••••

Day 4

800×3 to round out my week of squatting every day with nearly every session at 800lbs. Nice way to round out this training cluster after taking the year off from back squatting. #800EveryDay ••••• Thanks for supporting Kabuki Strength, and helping make the world a better place through strength! ••••• www.kabuki.ms www.kabukistrength.com ••••• #ChrisDuffin #kabukistrength #kabukistrengthlab #kabukimovementsystems #MoveBetter #Powerlifting #barbell #bar #powerbar #MadScientist #ShouldeRok #Duffalo #SquatBar #AntiFragile #elitefts @elitefts #shoulderhealth #shoulder #powerbuilding #strength #strengthtraining #squat #bench #deadlift #rehab #evidencebased #boomstick @kabukistrengthlab #acumobility @acumobility @ks_virtualcoaching •••••

Day 3

Ok I have to admit I got carried away this last week after squatting heavy again after taking a year off from doing so. Got addicted to what I missed and been squatting every day for last 5 days… I’m only counting days around 800 and above however so day 3 in a row I guess if I pull out the 750×3 and Transformer Bar speed day with 585 I did. Hopefully I can get this addiction under control soon and be more reasonable with my training! ••••• Thanks for supporting Kabuki Strength, and helping make the world a better place through strength! ••••• www.kabuki.ms www.kabukistrength.com ••••• #ChrisDuffin #kabukistrength #kabukistrengthlab #kabukimovementsystems #MoveBetter #Powerlifting #barbell #bar #powerbar #MadScientist #ShouldeRok #Duffalo #SquatBar #AntiFragile #elitefts @elitefts #shoulderhealth #shoulder #powerbuilding #strength #strengthtraining #squat #bench #deadlift #rehab #evidencebased #boomstick @kabukistrengthlab #acumobility @acumobility @ks_virtualcoaching •••••
