Course Overview

Our cornerstone Principles of Loaded Movement course is an interactive, in-person continuing education course through which attendees will develop mastery around the core barbell lifts and foundational human movement. We invite you to join the over 1000 individuals who have attended Kabuki Strength courses over the last 4 years by signing up for one of our upcoming courses spread throughout the United States.



Together with other athletes, coaches, and clinicians – you will spend 16 hours over 2 days in a hybrid lecture-workshop format learning from and working hands-on with an experienced group of Kabuki Strength coaches. Outside of our public events; our skilled educators regularly present this curriculum to professional and collegiate strength & conditioning staff, as well as at professional conferences and events. Attendees from all professions and sports – and with differing goals - find incredible value in developing strength, resilience to injury, and gaining a better understanding of their own physiology and individual mechanics as it relates to movement.



You will be introduced and take a deep dive into our principle-based movement system as well as cover higher level physiology and biomechanics from a clinical, research- based perspective. Topics covered include spinal mechanics, breathing and bracing, foot strength and ankle mobility, and principles behind the complex relationships of hip, spine, and shoulder function.


Each lecture section is followed up with a corresponding breakout session that will have you working with a coach in a collaborative small group setting. Attendees will take the role of both demonstrating, assessing, and coaching correctives and drills – all under the watchful eyes of a Kabuki Strength coach.



After a short review, the second day of the course involves short lectures and demonstration of practical applications to barbell training after which attendees will individually squat, bench press, and deadlift. This practicum typically results in many “aha” moments of clarity for lifters who quickly develop self-awareness of their previous movement faults as well as an understanding of why those faults existed and how to overcome them. It’s not uncommon for attendees during this second day to hit personal bests or lift pain-free after years of frustration and no progress.



Our mission for this course is to provide you with the education and tools necessary to achieve your goals – whether you are attending as an athlete, coach, clinician, or simply curious to learn and grown in your knowledge and abilities. Correct, safe movement is foundational to our function not just as athletes, but human beings.

Ask a Question
  • I have been silently following Chris and Kabuki Strength during my journey from fat middle aged couch potato to a mildly-in-shape couch potato. 1. Is there a cancellation policy in the event of further COVID lockdowns? I feel completely safe with other (Im fully vaccinated) and I will wear a mask of required, but its large investment with a high risk. 2. I am very much a novice in terms of strength training, however I am no novice to the gym. My big 3 compound movements combined are very little weight. Do I need to be a certain level for this course to be appropriate? Thank you!

    1. Yes, if we had to cancel due to Covid issues, the cost would be transferable to another seminar, usable toward equipment you may want to purchase, or refundable to your original form of payment.
    2.  We only require the desire to learn and get better! We help people from all walks of life, with all types of goals and all skill levels!

  • does the course provide CEUs for the NSCA specifically a CSCS.

    Our Seminars are not NSCA approved for CEUs, because the 3 of them culminate in our Coach’s Certification.  Unfortunately, the NSCA will not allow other certifications outside of their organization to count towards their CEUs.  However, we offer some of the best continuing education in the industry and that is why many coaches attend our courses.  Keep an eye out for other learning opportunities from Kabuki Strength (like the Kabuki Education Week) that are NSCA CEU approved!
