Stainless Steel MyoRök

The MyoRök is our latest IASTM Tool, designed with clinical input and made of a high strength stainless steel, laser cut and polished to a perfect edge finish.

You may notice that the MyoRök's 2.25 pound weight is heavier than similar tools - this increased mass allows for improved edge control and less strain on the wrist.

The tool features multiple internal and external radii, a micro-fascial point, and a beautiful polished double bevel. It's edge is finished to a perfect .060" radius.

Another unique feature and industry first of the MyoRök is it's ability to mount to the ShoulderRök for further self-use applications - especially useful for individuals with limited mobility.

The Kadillac Bar is the latest offering from our team of engineers and educators, and it has quickly found its way into the weightrooms of countless professional and collegiate teams as a staple barbell for athletes who need to bench press safely and effectively.

In this video, Chris Duffin takes a look a the physics behind the Kadillac Bar's primary features and discusses it's advantages over a standard swiss/football bar.

  • Cambered the same angle as the Duffalo Bar for increased range of motion.
  • Machined Sleeves allow the use of regular barbell collars and include our signature end caps.
  • 10°, 12.5°, and 15° grip angles promote optimal, stacked joint position and improve movement mechanics.
  • Useable in both standard and reverse grip positions.
  • Plated sleeves and powder-coated center for durability and corrosion resistance.
  • Removable sleeves to reduce shipping cost.

Today's episode is a fascinating discussion with sleep expert Nick Lambe - The Online Sleep Coach. Sleep is a topic that is equally important to all humans, particularly performance and strength athletes. We all have different relationships with sleep, some positive and some negative. 

Listen in as Nick discusses the physiological and psychological processes behind healthy sleep, how supplementation (stimulants, sleep aids, THC/CBD, etc) work and affect sleep, and the difference between quality and quantity of sleep. He discusses the importance of habit and environment to sleep quality, sleep hygiene, as well as recent research on sleep. A great listen for all sleepers! 

You can follow Nick on Instagram @theonlinesleepcoach or online at where you can learn more about his sleep coaching services.

Driveline Baseball Studies Duffalo Bar

We are pumped to have the incredible team at Driveline Baseball study the Duffalo Bar! Check out their post caption below for more information.

"Beginning a new study comparing the kinematics and kinetics during a near maximal loaded back squat using @kabukistrengthlab Duffalo bar vs a regular bar. The Duffalo Bar proprietary bend is said to encourage proper joint centration and reduces rotational demand on the shoulder. It is also said to improve scapular retraction and lat engagement in the press and squat. In this study It is possible that the bend of the bar can make it more comfortable to use for overhead athletes if there is compromised shoulder range of motion present. Stay tuned for the results of the study! 📈 👀 Credit: @rachel.balkovec @s_medick"

Training to Break the 2650 mile Pacific Coast Trail World Record

Becky Rogers @the_phoenix_running is an ultra-marathoner training to run the 2650 mile Pacific Coast Trail and set the fastest time for any human, ever! She is an absolute legend and we were thrilled to have her join Coach Kyle and Chris at the BioForce Conditioning Coach Course where they presented a few weeks ago. Becky uses IASTM tools like the Boomstick to help her recover from her intense training.
"450 miles is a long ways to run. Anyone who has ventured into the multi hundred mile running event knows that the name of the game is RECOVERY. I was fortunate to have met the guys from @kabukistrengthlab this past weekend at @coachjoeljamieson BioForce Conditioning Coach conference. The recovery techniques (including the
Boomstick seen here) @young_strength_165 and Chris Duffin shared will help me in my upcoming Oregon run as well as the 2650 mile long PCT Record attempt next June. Thank you Kabuki and Joel! Check out all the cool recovery tools, online library and more at"
