About This Show
I love learning about and thinking through the frameworks and principles that people use to understand the world - as well as the processes that they use to maintain and update their principles for decision-making.
Do you also like this? Great. Then check out some of these interviews with CrossFit Games coaches and athletes, underground musicians, and start-up CEOs - as well as soliloquies on my own efforts to understand the world and make better decisions.
This is about strategy and understanding - not just tools and tactics.Read more »

The folks at Kabuki Strength spend a lot of time getting people to roll around on the ground like babies. And I like that. It turns out that, especially in a sport like powerlifting, little details matter. So, spending a significant amount of time developing proper movement strategies is well worth the investment. I recently attended the Kabuki Movement Systems course, and I found it to be quite valuable - and I also really enjoy going to courses outside of my comfort zone (I am definitely not a powerlifter). I've done a lot of similar continuing education as the Kabuki folks in the physical therapy realm, so seeing how they apply their takeaways to their sport as illuminating. And, we of course got to discuss and joke about the consistent "point missing" that most folks have with regards to movement practice. If you're enjoying the show, why not a leave a review?
