#derekweida comes along and trains to deadlift 500lbs whilst missing one of his legs: https://www.instagram.com/p/BuuJO_-n57L/
Throughout my career I’ve handled a lot of concerns. People deal with pain. And it sucks. As much as we can, we organize movement patterns to work around the pain, address the pain, strengthen structures to mitigate future pain.
As I reflect over the thousands and thousands of clients I’ve known or directly coached, and the thousands of worries many had about knee stress during activity, not to make light of their plight… but COME ON. This man was shot sideways through the knee while serving our country, suffered through futile attempts to save the leg for 18 months, ultimately losing it.
Now, he does this. And HIM doing THIS makes makes even the tough guys look… well… not that impressive.
