Solid week of training this week with lots of PR's. In addition to what was listed in the title I also hit a 350x20 Reverse grip bench after the 225 rep out.Here is my training log from this las week. You can see the plan, any deviation from the plan, velocity numbers driving the load for auto regulation purposes, and my subjective workout feedback. Learn more about our training methods here.All the weights used are listed in the document below as well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tr_6uQV3FqE...

In this piece Kelly Starrett and Chris Duffin are clearly fired up and addressing topics in a rapid-fire fashion. Starrett and Duffin quickly hit on and address numerous topics on movement mechanicsMuch of the focus of the discussion surrounds the future of role of the responsibility of the strength coach. Duffin and Starrett challenge the status quo of the current role and when clinical intervention is brought in. Both articulate that these roles need to change, but this also involves people on both ends of this spectrum needing to “up their game”. Clearly defining what those roles are and then educating to those expectations will reduce injury rates and improve performance of athletes.Kelly and Chris also clarify the expectations on what athletes are doing for prep work. While both provide significant education online via the MWOD and KABUKI.MS platforms they find some people take this prep work to far. Standards for length of time and what is done are covered.They also discuss how complementary both of these products (MWOD & KABUKI.MS) are to cover the athlete’s needs for learning proper movement patterns, mobilizing, and performing the correct preparatory movement patterning.Additionally KABUKI.MS is offering a 50% off initiation for the first 100 people who sign up from this video with code: MWODhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8zpvGEqPS4...

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....

Assessment and Correction Strategies for Hip Shift and Pelvic Tilt in Squat and Deadlift with Chris Duffin and Brad CoxKabuki Strength's Chris Duffin and Acumobity's Brad Cox team up for a video series on re-patterning, correctives, and cueing for strength training.  Much of the greater depth of content will be housed on Kabuki.MS in the indexable and searchable video library.  However an entire public series of video's will be available as well where Brad and Chris meld their innovative style of assessment and corrective strategies together as they apply to strength athletes.The first in the series is dealing with addressing both hip shift and pelvic tilt when we see them in squatting and deadlifting patterns.  This video goes far beyond what other videos' on this subject provide.  They dive into how to assess and understand the root of the issue then develop the specific strategy based on the outcomes of your assessment.  In this video they walk through 5 different assessments and multiple strategies for dealing with it.Products used in the video include Kabuki Strength's Boom Stick and Acumobility Products.  More in depth videos will be published on Kabuki.MS.  Also keep an eye out for more collaborative efforts between Kabuki Strength and Acumobility.You can video the video above!...

The Mad Scientist of Powerlifting himself, Chris Duffin returns for episode 148 of the PowerCast. Chris has made some dramatic changes to the course of his life since we last saw him. You’re going to want to hear what he has to say about how he made the decision to walk away from a high paying job to develop products and content to help athletes move better and find their true potential. If you think about it, finding his true potential is what drove Chris to make these changes in the first place.Be sure to check out the whole episode, because Chris makes a very special offer for PowerCast listeners.Production note: This is our first shot at the new, multi-cam PowerCast. One camera is slightly potatoed, but we'll get it next time.https://youtu.be/wA3dJLJ-hN4Here is another video from the same couple days at SuperTraining Gym as well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=273qOKd-lLw&feature=youtu.be...

Well training was pretty damn minimal this week. With all the travel, work, and filming I was struggling to get some good training in.  Lack of sleep really hits me hard and I was struggling with this all week on top of that and after the first couple days realized I essentially wasn't going to get much to any training in.  What you see in the following video is pretty much it.  I had some big lifts but not many of them.On the bright side you will be seeing a ton of new content over the next month!Deadlift Tutorial Video @ SupertrainingBench tutorial Video @ SupertrainingKelly Starrett Interviews about the future of strength coach and clinical practice and where these areas collideAnd tons of new content for WWW.Kabuk.MS Lifts this week855x6 Deadlift on Wagon Wheels225x58 Reverse Grip Bench followed by340x20 Reverse Grip Bench625x2 no Hands front squathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsGvYOUdGMo...

Did some Work with Chad Aichs and Jesse Anderson then Traveled to Texas and trained at MetroFlex Fort Worth while presenting at CSCCa Seminar. In my training plan you can see how the core lifts are being managed via velocity measurements. These velocity measurements are built off of my individual profiling sessions of these lifts. Then using a reps in reserve to manage my accessory work as well as tracking of the perceived workout difficulty which are all visible in the training log.Here is my training log from this las week. You can see the plan, any deviation from the plan, velocity numbers driving the load for auto regulation purposes, and my subjective workout feedback.

The Duffin Movement Systems A Complete Education on Coaching and Cueing Barbell Movements Based on Operational Mechanics vs Peripheral Observation while Learning to do a Full Movement Assessment and Corrections on the same principals Background on this Approach This is the only complete approach like this being taught. It is not only innovative but grounded in science pulling form multiple disciplines to create this unique system. Chris has been a competitive athlete for 25 years achieving multiple world records and 15 years of coaching.  He has combined that experience with his engineering and continuous learning mindset.  By seeking out and learning directly from some of the best rehab and sports clinicians around that set the course for the rest of the field, he has been able to collaborate, refine, and test this approach over the years. In addition to his own records Chris is an even more successful coach having coached more All-Time Record setting Powerlifters than any other Coach in the world.What you will learn - How to coach and cue the core lifts based on operational mechanics vs peripheral observation - How to use the core lifts as a full movement assessment - How to then apply correction to:Scapular Stabilization Scapular to Core Integration Shoulder and Thoracic Mobility Core Stability (Proper IAP and Breathing Patterns) Glute & Adductor Balance and Core Integration Hip Mobility Bulletproofing the Back or Training with Disc Injuries Safely While Rehabbing- Special exercises for developing weak areas or firing pattern issues. - Mental preparation to achieve success as an athlete, coach, career, and life. - Open Q&A onProgram Organization Velocity Based Training Any other topicsDMS Certification has 2 Phases2 days of intensive hands on training 90 day online course diving deeper than we could ever go in a 2 day weekend  (Certification is not guaranteed)The DMS Certification is for YOU, if...
