Strength Chat by Kabuki Strength

It was absolutely amazing to chat with Chris Duffin, Rudy Kadlub & Brandon Senn of KABUKI STRENGTH. We covered a lot of ground with this podcast - touching on some everything from athlete health, performance inhibition, female strength athletes, and even how much my deadlift sucks!

I’m so grateful to Chris, Rudy and Brandon for having me on the show!


“We are honored to have Victoria Felkar as today's guest on Strength Chat. She is an explorer, a renegade, and an advocate pushing the boundaries of performance and health through research, coaching, and teaching. 

Victoria is currently completing her doctoral studies at University of British Columbia, specializing in physical culture, medical and criminological knowledge, performance enhancement, and the muscular body. Her doctoral research explores women's health and female hormone manipulation within sport and medicine.

Tune in as the Mad Scientist, Dr. Rudolph, and the Wizard of Training discuss some of what Victoria has been working on lately. 

A great episode you won't want to miss!

Part 1: 2018 elitefts Sports Performance Summit Presentation

"Victoria Felkar's relationship with elitefts began in 2011 when she attended a Learn to Train seminar and experienced what she has described a "defining point" in her journey. Leading up to that point—and in the years since—her accomplishments have earned her the following and respect of individuals in both the academic world of strength and the industry of strength. As an interdisciplinary researcher at the University of British Columbia, Felkar has focused on sports medicine, as well as on sociology, psychology, anthropology, pharmacology, and the relationships between them. She has also worked for over ten years as a practitioner, consultant, author, and educator.

In this video, Felkar begins her 2018 elitefts Sports Performance Summit presentation by talking about the divide between academia and the strength industry, the athlete performance model, and an approach to better manage an athlete's training and well-being."
