Trunk stability is one of our favorite topics to discuss. A stable trunk means better energy transfer and a more resilient body. Bracing is a skill and its something that needs to be practiced in order to maintain. Bracing prep should be short, intense, and effective. That is exactly what we have for today's video.

An effective taper will help you realize all of the progress you've made through your training block. Not all tapes are created equal and they way you tape should be reflective of how you were training. Factors such as bodyweight, strength level, injury history, and age also influence how you should taper.

Creatine is a vital brain compound that helps with a number of bodily functions. Emerging studies have shown its vast benefits to brain health and longevity. Supplementing creatine not only helps with performance, but also with neurological disease, TBI, brain deterioration, and overall function.

While supplementing creatine is a viable option there are also several foods that contain creatine. Here are the most creatine rich foods.

Pork: 5g/kg
Steak: 4.5g/kg
Salmon: 4.5g/kg
Tuna: 4g/kg
Chicken: 3.5g/kg

Understanding exercise carryover is a major component of the overall success of a training plan. In order to start a conversation around exercise carryover we need to use a common language beyond individual beliefs and opinions. Physics is that language.

Today, these same concepts remain foundational to our educational curriculum.

Click the image above to watch this video for an overview of our flagship and most popular Virtual Coaching service. Weekly Virtual Coaching includes comprehensive assessment and engagement to promote the best possible coach/athlete relationship. Our team has spent years building systems and processes to help optimize and provide the best possible feedback and direction forward week to week using various methods of autoregulation, frequent feedback, and video analysis. We view this coaching as a long-term athletic development process, not just a 12-week program to peak you for a meet. This means we’re devoted to the holistic picture of helping you to improve in the direction of your specific goals and approaching them from all possible angles to help you to the greatest degree possible.

Something that sets us apart from other coaching services is that we are exactly that, a coaching service. This is not a template or even just an individual program. Our goal is long-term development of the individual and we try to cover all the bases for that as it relates to training. In addition to receiving an updated training program weekly, you will also be given a movement plan at the beginning and as needed later which gives technical cues to work on based on video analysis, and corrective drills to begin to address faults in technique. This helps us ensure we’re developing movement quality in conjunction with other athletic qualities to help optimize not only your performance but also longevity.

Remote coaching has some unique obstacles not present during tradition in-person coaching. Most challenges revolve around communication which is why we’ve created systems to manage multiple communicatory paths. We combine the objective information provided in your training log with the subjective information provided in your weekly check-ins to decide what needs updated and ultimately to determine how effective the training is. Ultimately, once you become part of the Kabuki Strength Team you become the most important person to us. Your goals become our goals and we only have your best interest in mind.

As an organization, Kabuki Strength stands humbly at the intersection of two eternal virtues, experience and knowledge. From the very beginning, one of our core, foundational tenants has been education. It is this never-ending pursuit, application, and expression of knowledge that is central to our mission of making the world a better place through strength.

Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to work with and receive mentorship from some of the brightest minds in the industry. These incredible researchers, educators, coaches, and clinicians are the ones weaving the fabric of our collective understanding of how the body works, how to strengthen it, and how to fix it when it breaks. They spend much of their time in the clinic, on the field, in the lab, or in the classroom; working relentlessly to push us one step further.

We’ve found that of the greatest challenges facing our community is the disconnect between the pursuit of knowledge and its mainstream application. In an industry influenced by dogma and the incessant search for instant results we often lose sight of the men and women who build our foundation of knowledge. For them, recognition is scarce and in today’s day and age popularity often determines the success of an idea or person, rather than efficacy or truth.

We want to change this.

We are committed to sharing our platform and working with the clinical, academic, and strength & conditioning communities to teach, coach, and equip more and more people with the tools and knowledge needed to better themselves. If you listen to our Strength Chat podcast, you will have heard many of these incredible men and women tell their story and share wisdom.

Today, we are proud to announce and introduce a new initiative towards this goal – the Kabuki Strength Advisory Board. We are honored that these world-class individuals would lend us their time, their knowledge, and their name in our pursuit of making the world a better place through strength.
