    Default Barbell Training as Rehab: Brian Jones' Story

    by Karl Schudt

    “My name is Brian Jones. I am a forty five-year-old father of six in Lexington, Kentucky. In April of 2011, during the course of my duties as an insurance adjuster, I fell over twenty feet from a roof in North Carolina; landing in a standing position on the concrete drive. Imagine grabbing a rebound from your second floor and coming down with it. Long story not as long – I incurred severe pilon fractures in both legs.” . . . His doctor told him that it wasn’t a matter of whether he would be disabled, but how severely…The doctor told him that he would certainly be crippled for life, and probably wouldn’t be able to walk unassisted. If you were in his situation, what would you do? Would you accept the prognosis, and sit in a chair for the rest of your life?

    If that article does not motivate you to get to the gym and do real work, I don't know what will.

    Fucking incredible read. This article is now tied with Dr. Sullivan's "Big Medicine" as my favorite SS articles.

    Many thanks to both Karl for writting it, and Brian for sharing his story and amazing progress. Although now I really feel like a great big pussy after reading and re-reading the article....I'm going to quit bitching so much about 1st world problems from now on.

    Keep up the inspiring progress, Brian!

    Breaking news!

    The Brian Jones story is total BS. A fabrication to sell books. I have proof....

    IF the story is true, THEN I am pathetic. THEREFORE, .......


    Brian, what you have accomplished has changed MY life! Thank you! You have given back more than you have taken. Keep us up to date. Please.

    It would be better if it was in all the peer-reviewed medical journals someday.

    Impossible, since the work was all done Against Medical Advice.
