What Does Hardcore Mean?

I withdraw money from the ATM machine in a hardcore fashion. I’m hardcore when I buy groceries. Not as hardcore as the “dime a dozen” wannabe MMA boys. It seems like every dickweed puts a Tapout sticker on his/her vehicle.

I got that part but how do you achieve this in an 1-2 hour period weight training WITHOUT going towards injury and just plain stupidity.

I mean any old fool can set up a bar and just start doing endless sets of squats till he pukes and/or his body shuts down but how do you make it functional. To where 1 man does this “intense” workout as his normal routine 6 days a week, but when another lifter tries to go along with his program he drops out within a month or less.[/quote]

Was your last paragraph a question or a statement?

If you do endless sets of squats until you puke (assuming you recover and grow), how is it not functional? Having stronger legs is not a disfunction.

Hardcore generally means that you’ll kill an orphan and not feel bad.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

you are.

its actually when you kill a kid’s parents making them an orphan. b/c no one cares if an orphan dies or not.

Batman is an orphan…and pretty hardcore too. My bets or on him in terms of hardcoreness.

thinking

But technically…if you kill Batman…an epithome of hardcoreness…and an orphan, for that matter…what does that make you?

And what about hardcore porn?.. How hardcore are you when you’re deadlifting heavy with bruised and bloody shins while watching hardcore porn and chewing on beef jerkey…

I think the world would explode…

So maybe it’s best to ditch the hardcore-attitude, you might look stupid.

Lifting progressively heavier weights, caring for your family, doing your job and laughing at life…I think that would suffice.[/quote]

if you can deadlift and simotaneously watch porn you are super hardcore b/c im sure deadlifting with a boner must really fucking hurt.

Hardcore means your body quits before your mind does.

Yes, and I don’t think skinny people can handle “hardcore” workouts.

It means you wear a ski cap when it’s blistering hot outside. You drop the weights that are moderately heavy while making noise so everyone can turn and see how truly ‘hardcore’ you are. You never smile because you are ‘in the zone’, and other folks in the gym are nuisances, intending nothing more than to obstruct you from your quest for massiveness (because you’re already ‘huge’).

Probably not, but dickweeds nonetheless. Wait, you’re a dickweed? It all boils down to this fact: The human body isn’t bullet proof. Consequently, accidents happen in street brawls and someone in the pursuit of self defense, sometimes tragically, double taps the assailant.

Funny, this is like someone asking “how many sets should I do?”, or “which tricep-head do narrow-grip pushdowns isolate most?” but then stating that he is 280 lbs in contest shape.
Right.

Are you telling me that you’re the god of MMA(one of them, anyway) but have never had to really push yourself in order to get there and now log onto online forums to ask the kind of questions one would expect from a 13 year old?

Normally, experienced people (no matter whether they’re fighters or bodybuilders) demonstrate more common sense…

A quote by Frank McGrath (i think it was him), comes to mind: “if you have to tell someone how good you are, you ain’t that good”

Can be related to thinking you’re hardcore, etc.

this guy seems like he might be hardcore though.

He was hardocre in a sweet kind of way

Jesus Christ.

People are such arrogant fucks around here. Everyone’s a badass hardcore monster with a 600 lb bench and an 800 lb squat.

Holy shit - shut the fuck up and don’t post anything if you dislike this guy’s thread so much.

But no, we have an endless amount of badass motherfuckers around here with a burning desire to knock people down so they can post about how awesome their poundages are or how much they can handle, because of course, they’re just so much better than everyone else.

Fuck off…
