You simply must watch this video. I say this not as a command, but because after watching it, you will agree. Listen to the story of how Brian gained his life back through getting strong after a devastating accident.

From Starting Strength:
"Brian Jones describes how barbell training was the rehabilitation tool that gave him his life back after medical professionals had all but given up on his ever walking again.

He tells his story in a very emotional, yet entertaining talk during the 2015 Starting Strength Coaches Association Conference held at Wichita Falls Athletic Club."

Personal note: I was there when Brian gave this talk - never have there been so many large and strong men with tears in their eyes as were in the room that day.
