Today we are joined by Brandon Senn, Vice President of Athlete Education at Kabuki Strength. At Kabuki Strength, the team aims to educate and train through seminars, both online and in-person, as well as creating and selling fitness equipment. Brandon discusses how Kabuki Strength pivoted to online coaching, developing strong systems and processes, and utilizing data to create adaptive training programs.
“Now I rarely plan more than 4 weeks in advance; usually it’s 2, often it’s 1. I know where I want to get to but I’m not over-planning it anymore. Decision making has changed. I’d rather have a conversation about it, not a dictatorship.” – Brandon Senn
