Perfect of the Week

R.I.P. John Thomas Suggs 9/1/36 –2/1/22

Mark Rippetoe

My outdated pal Tommy Suggs died this morning on the age of 85. “Supe” – (for “Tremendous Suggs”) as Starr known as him for many years — used to be a just right guy. He used to be essential to the iron recreation, some of the perfect coaches in Olympic weightlifting again once we had been just right at it, and used to be only one helluva lot of a laugh too. He’s survived through his loving spouse Karen and a ways too many children and grandkids. A toast this night for Tommy Suggs!


Rip, thank you for exposing us to Tommy. I might have by no means recognized about him if it were not for you. RIP Tommy!


Thanks for introducing him to us. His reminiscence and knowledge lives on.

Mark Rippetoe

A very good tribute to Supe.

Head Harm w/ Blank CT


Slipped on ice closing evening and bashed the again of my head in opposition to the door jamb. I noticed stars and used to be disoriented for a couple of mins and, after understanding I had a just right sized laceration at the again of my noggin, went to the ER.

Were given stapled up and requested for the CT scan, which got here up blank. I haven’t any nausea and no headache (apart from for ache on the laceration) and in a different way really feel totally effective. In truth, I credit score my coaching for no longer having any again, neck, or limb harm because of the autumn.

Additionally, I’ve learn Mark’s admonition in an outdated thread of “Have you ever had a cranial CT? If no longer, get one now. And don’t ask some shithead on the net about your closed-head harm ever once more.” However, I’ve had the CT. The fellow in that thread didn’t and had different signs.

The ER physician stated to take every week off as a result of I’ve a “head” harm. However, if the entirety got here up blank and I haven’t any different signs, I’m questioning if I actually have a “head harm” or only a laceration that occurs to be on my head.

Understanding that docs will have a tendency to be overly wary, I simply don’t know if a blank CT is sufficient to take me out of the world of reputable clinical recommendation, to which I will have to adhere, and again into the world of paying attention to shitheads on the net.

Every week off sounds over the top, taking into consideration I haven’t overlooked a coaching day in two years. I wish to simply shift my time table again someday to look how I believe nowadays sooner than getting below the bar once more the next day. However, if I’m actually in a “don’t be an asshole and concentrate to the physician” scenario, I’ll simply suck it up. Death below the bar with a mind bleed sounds not up to productive for my coaching targets.

Mark Rippetoe

I do not believe you might have a “head harm” consistent with se, however quite a reduce for your head. Heat up in moderation and spot if anything else ugly happens.


Feeling good enough nowadays, no longer nice. However that may have one thing to do with loss of sleep after an evening within the ER.

My spouse says I used to be disoriented for extra like an hour, no longer only a few mins, so I suppose that’s extra reason why to take it sluggish. I’ll really feel it out with the warmups the next day and check out to not be a hero.

Matt James

I had what I believed used to be a light concussion in 2016. Used to be a good bit disoriented for many of the night. Did not assume an excessive amount of of it and went off on every week’s holiday that concerned mountain climbing/operating everywhere the Black Hills and beneficiant amounts of excellent bourbon. By the point I were given again I used to be in unhealthy form, and handled the after results for months (complications, reminiscence loss). I were given a CT after I were given again from the travel and it used to be transparent, for what it is value.

Every week off is also over the top assuming it is gentle. However watch out. You might really feel effective all the way through your exercise and really feel like shit the following day. Clearly if that occurs you wish to have to leisure till your signs are long gone. If you are feeling off nowadays, it might not be a nasty concept to offer your self every other day or two of leisure sooner than you educate once more.

Simply my two cents. Don’t be a dumbass like me. A pair days off from coaching is significantly better than weeks or months of bullshit.

Mark Rippetoe

Sure, you’ll concuss and not using a bleed. Have in mind: heat up in moderation and take note of what’s going on.
