If any knuckle head ever tells you he lifts Hardcore for 3 hours trust me he doesn’t even know the meaning of hardcore lifting.
If I need to simplfy it even more “If said knuckle head actually lifted Hard Core he wouldn’t be able to lift for 3 hours.”
First, this is by far the dumbest thread since last week.
Second, I agree for the most part. If you can train for 3 full hours lifting weights at full out intensity, you are either Kryptonian or you aren’t lifting anywhere near as “hardcore” as you think you are.
Also, the entire concept of this thread just shows flat out stupidity. It is as if some people actually believe that there are no levels of experience, intensity, or effort.
Someone who can only curl 35lbs has no fucking clue what it is like to curl a 90lbs dumbbell with one hand and has never experienced the overall stress of using that much weight. That alone can separate intensity levels.
There is no such thing as “relative strength” in terms of how your body deals with stress. If you’ve never experienced truly heavy weight, you have no clue what type of stress on your body that would present.[/quote]
This whole idea of relativity in training is pretty overrated if you ask me. In the grand scheme of things, there’s very little difference between the bodies of a huge man and a small man. Its a factor of two, maybe a little more, not even an order of magnitude.
For all intents and purposes it’s the same. Thucydides knew it when he said “All men are much the same, therefore he is best who is trained in the severest of schoolest.”
