Easiest of the Week

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

Mark Rippetoe

My previous pal Tommy Suggs died this morning on the age of 85. “Supe” – (for “Tremendous Suggs”) as Starr referred to as him for many years — used to be a excellent guy. He used to be crucial to the iron recreation, one of the most highest coaches in Olympic weightlifting again once we have been excellent at it, and used to be only one helluva lot of a laugh too. He’s survived via his loving spouse Karen and some distance too many youngsters and grandkids. A toast this night for Tommy Suggs!


Rip, thank you for exposing us to Tommy. I would 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 ultimate evening and bashed the again of my head towards the door jamb. I noticed stars and used to be disoriented for a couple of mins and, after understanding I had a excellent 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 don’t have any nausea and no headache (apart from for ache on the laceration) and in a different way really feel utterly high-quality. In truth, I credit score my coaching for now not having any again, neck, or limb damage on account of the autumn.

Additionally, I’ve learn Mark’s admonition in an previous thread of “Have you ever had a cranial CT? If now not, get one now. And don’t ask some shithead on the net about your closed-head damage ever once more.” However, I’ve had the CT. The fellow in that thread didn’t and had different signs.

The ER physician mentioned to take every week off as a result of I’ve a “head” damage. However, if the whole thing got here up blank and I don’t have any different signs, I’m questioning if I in reality have a “head damage” or only a laceration that occurs to be on my head.

Figuring out that medical doctors 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 legit clinical recommendation, to which I will have to adhere, and again into the world of taking note of shitheads on the net.

Per week off sounds over the top, taking into consideration I haven’t neglected a coaching day in two years. I need to simply shift my agenda again someday to peer how I think nowadays ahead of getting beneath the bar once more the next day. However, if I’m in reality in a “don’t be an asshole and concentrate to the physician” scenario, I’ll simply suck it up. Demise beneath the bar with a mind bleed sounds lower than productive for my coaching objectives.

Mark Rippetoe

I do not believe you might have a “head damage” according to se, however fairly a reduce for your head. Heat up moderately and notice if anything else ugly happens.


Feeling good enough nowadays, now not nice. However that would possibly 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, now not only some mins, so I assume that’s extra explanation why to take it sluggish. I’ll really feel it out with the warmups the next day and take a look at to not be a hero.

Matt James

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

Per week off could also be over the top assuming it is delicate. However watch out. You might really feel high-quality all over your exercise and really feel like shit tomorrow. Clearly if that occurs you wish to have to relaxation till your signs are long past. In case you are feeling off nowadays, it might not be a nasty concept to present your self every other day or two of relaxation ahead of 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 be able to concuss and not using a bleed. Take note: heat up moderately and take note of what’s going on.
