    When is the last time you seen some bring there own chains to a commercial gym to do floor presses....Only for the hardcore I guess! I hope this gets some more entries rolling.
    I couldn't do it.

    Alright so My camera couldnt film my whole thing so i had to set it up in two different videos. only rest i take is to re-setup the camera...



    YouTube - i-Force Max-Out Hardcore Chest Competition part 1
    YouTube - i-Force Max-Out Hardcore Chest Competition


    Workout consisted of:
    BB flat: 225x5, 135x25
    DB flat: 65x12
    DB Incline: 60x6.5, 60x6
    Cable Cross: 35x8,25x15
    Pull-up: Bwx8

    Stats
    Ht:5'8.5
    Wt:166 Lbs

    Why Its Hardcore
    Not gonna lie, I could have done about 10-15 Reps with the first set of flat bench, but i made up for it with my other exercises. I blasted myself through this and ran a quadruple superset, literally. As you can see, I was quite winded and my upper body felt like a noodle. I went for intensity as well as rep/weight combination, not so much leaning towards weight or reps. Thanks for the consideration IFORCE!

    Nice

    Excessive, maybe for some but not for the Hardcore! Seriously though the bands and chains both add different types of resistance to the bar. For example I have 225 on the which is about 55% of my one rep max for a full range press raw. I plan on competing with a single ply shirt so I am really try to train my lockout which ofcourse is stronger than off of my chest now. The bands and chains both overload the top of the movement, but the bands are trying to force the bar down on me so it trains me to control the bar and stay tight on the bench. Also the bands are giving me additional tension throughout the whole lift so its much harder to outrun the band tension by pressing fast like you could with the chains. The chains on the other hand have absolutely no effect on the weight for the bottom half of the motion, I have them set so that the resistance begins right around my usual sticking point. This way I am working with heavy weight around my sticking point to get it stronger but keeping the weight light enough for the effects of dynamic pressing. Its rare that I use both but its killer when I do.

    Also whats all this " my arm looked like it was going to break stuff" , they are like steel girders lol no breaking under tension :bb3:

    You should only ever have to spot the last repetition, IF required. If you need to be touching the bar or holding the elbows the entire way through a set for fear of them dropping it on themselves, then they shouldn't even be pushing that weight in the first place.

  12. hey bud, if your not hardcore enough to push yourself through a set of near fails for 6 times in a row then maybe this thread isn't for you. he didn't need me the first few....but when you know you have a spotter and that your safe and can put your all into it....you do.

  13. I don't near fail 6 times in a row.

  14. drummer boy,

    Take a second and go back in the thread just a bit and watch Cubs vids. Thats all I am going to say about hardcore. This thread is about hardcore lifting, not hardcore spotting. You also seem to have a bit of an attitude about this, relax man. There are thousands of lifters many miles aways from you that you could obviously learn much from.

    Hell Yeah, A lot of people think shirt benching is easy but that couldn't be further from the truth. I am just starting my shirted training and I can't wait to be able to touch and press with a good amount of weight. Right now I am pressing 410 unequipped so I am hoping to get a good carry over in my first meet coming up in Oct.

  25. vikinginc's i-Force Are You HARDCORE Chest Workout Contest

    Here's my entry to this kick-a$$ opportunity!

    First Video shows Incline DB Presses - 110 lbs DB's for 8 reps.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW46tk0pqxA"]YouTube - i-Force Are You Hardcore Contest[/ame]

    Second Video shows Incline Hammer Flyes - 90 lbs * 12 reps

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCKayQktl2M"]YouTube - i-Force Are You Hardcore Chest Contest[/ame]

    Third Video (to show how hardcore $hit can get) shows my all-out Deadlift maxing session which was completed prior to my chest work - 605 lbs. for 1 rep - a 20 lbs gain on my deads since I maxed out about two weeks ago. -

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9oyhZdqDlU\


    August 23rd, 2008:

    Chest workout:
    Incline DB Press - 70 * 25, 90 * 15, 105 * 12, 120 * 4, 110 * 6
    Incline Hammer Machine Flyes - 70 * 15, 90 * 12, 110 * 5, 110 * 5
    Decline Cable Crossovers - 60 * 25, 70 * 25, 80 * 20

    This workout was proceeded by a max-day of Deadlifts;
    135 * 15, 225 * 12, 315 * 10, 405 * 8, 495 * 4, 605 * 1 (NEW PERSONAL RECORD), 405 * 4

    and followed the chest workout with some additional shoulder and arms touch-up work.

    Why It's Hardcore?
    - who walks in to the gym after four days off from training, slaps on two 45 lbs'ers or more for every weight increment on deads, maxes out @ 605 lbs (@ 6'3.75"), then continues on with 90-120 lbs dumbbells for incline presses, followed by two more chest exercises, then an all-out shoulder/bicep superset ?

    - I do !
