Whats the most exhausting thing you have done?

either the gym, a triathlon or something job related.

for me it was doing roof ventilation with a chain saw as a firefighter. You have to be in full gear (70lbs) and climb a ladder with a chain saw, while on 2nd ladder, cut a specific pattern into roof, make hole to let smoke and heat out.

alternatively you can use an axe and just wail on it.

That really took my breath. Another thing was after 7 hours of firefighting it was time to roll up hoses. The big hoses are heavy and in 100ft sections. It was cold so most of them had frozen water weighting them down. roll em up and walk them to the truck. My body almost seized up. Felt good cause a lot of other guys were standing around avoiding the work.

Depends on the type of exhaustion.

But pure physical one would be riding ~60km cold turkey on heavy old ass shock-less steel bicycle together with seasoned racers during their training. In forest. During rain. When i returned home 3 hours later i was shaking and feeling weird coldness all over myself.

I'm still puzzled how i kept up with them. When i'm doing >100km on road my legs start cramping etc before total exhaustion occurs.

Probably the high cadence required to beat sand and moss combined with intensive upper body work to compensate lack of shock.

A couple years ago I was on a canoe trip in a 17ft indigenous cedar Canoe and we did about 90mi in 4 days camping along the river. The first day was the longest 31mi and we were out on the water at sun rise barely making it to our landing before it got dark. One day we had crazy head wind and fighting the tide was a total bitch, took us 8+hrs to go 16-17miles.

Absolutely exhausting, but probably the best experience of my life

Breaking a 5 inch concrete floor up with a sledge and throwing it into a skip fucking did for me. Apart from that rendering is exhausting and kills your wrists.
>>
>>35986777
The only con to that is having to work on a rescue/medic. I will say fighting fire is one of the most exhausting jobs you can do, even if you are in fantastic shape.

I have a lot of respect for firefighters and cops because I have a lot of both in my family and I know how much being on call and working night shift sucks. But let's be real. As a construction worker, I deal with that shit, too, and I don't get a sweet pension after 20 years.

Hardest thing I ever did was a 28 hr Electrical shutdown repair job. Emergency power in a parking garage in my city wasn't working, and my company warranties all installations for a year.

Everyone has their likes and dislikes. I work in a tiered system, I don't take the ambulance out unless its ALS and if its not when we get there the EMTs take the patient. Running 3-5 true ALS calls in a 24 hour period is perfect.

Running 3 cardiac arrests in a shift is about as exciting to me as getting a good half shift long (start to finish) true structure fire.

Bro, shoulda been a cop or firefighter or figure out what your union (please tell me you at least are in a union) isn't securing decent benefits.

No one made you do X instead of Y.

Just a few weeks ago I went snowshoeing for the first time at a west coast BC mountain. 6 hours uphill, in snow gear with at least 50lb backpack on, maybe heavier. Plus I didn't realize until after, but I had had mono before that and hadn't really recovered from it yet.

When I got to the top with everyone I passed out for a nap, woke up, ate and drank a lot, then passed out for like 12 hours.

Not sure if that's the most taxing I've ever done, but definitely the most in recent memory
>>
>>35987014

Not union, I live in the South. It's actually a bad decision to be union in a right to work state.

Just because I'm not sucking a career's dick doesn't mean it's not a respectable career. Plus, I get a lot of perks that you don't, like over time, and the ability to quit and get a new job in a matter of days.

I had to carry home a girl from a party because she was having a panic attack after catching her bf cheating

she wasn't heavy but she was completely limp and shaking and i chucked her on my back and carried her almost 5 kilometres uphill

she gave me head the next morning lol

Try ocean kayaking. It motivates you to get your timing right - It once took me three hours to paddle three miles because I fucked up and was fighting an 8-knot tidal ebb. A reasonable paddler averages 5 knots - I had to average 10 knots just to move forwards. For three fucking hours. Still, it beat drowning.

Once Tabbed 40 miles with the British Army in 9 hours 45 minutes carrying 25kgs over hills in Scotland with a rifle.

Literally couldn't walk properly for about a week, incredibly fucked feet, entire body was just fucked, the Bergen cut the blood off to my arms and shoulders, lower back was ruined, and just general pain everywhere.

Fuck doing anything like that ever again, the Army does retarded shit but that was just stupid.

Super Spartan race...

The obstacles were easy, tbqh as they were almost all strength based and being /fit/ I blasted through all of them.

The hardest part, by far, was 3 "death marches" up an almost mile long incline and then going back down through very very rocky terrain.

It was fuckin brutal... people were laying all around the course passing out. I made it through without sitting down once and without failing an obstacle, albeit very slowly. Not bad for someone who literally never does cardio.

Sucking a careers dick?

Overtime? You do realize that is how I make double my salary annually.

Most firefighters are salaried on the west coast $60,000-100,000 and anything over our scheduled ABC platoon days (could be 48, detroit, modified detroit) is overtime. At my agency anything over my 8-13 days a month is double time. Making $60 bucks an hour for a 24 hour shift is well worth my $150 a month in union dues.

Why would I quit?

Not doing a whos dick is bigger contest because we are comparing apples to oranges but you brought it on by comparing these supposed perks you have which I fail to see as exclusive to your industry.

Ice hockey in full pads in an arena.

I had played on the pond many a time before and was in pretty good shape from lots of football & basketball, but it was just on a different level. By my third or fourth shift my fucking stick felt like it weighed 30 pounds.

There's nothing quite like an all out 400m sprints under racing conditions. Even worse if you have to do several in one day.

The mental fortitude to keep on pace for that last 100m--when your body has nothing left--is more exhausting than pretty much anything. You can't think or even walk after. You get fluish for 2-3 days.

My brother had be try some barbell complex that he called a "bear complex." That and the exercises I did afterwards caused me to puke, and it's the only time exercise has ever done that to me. I won't be doing it again, barbell complexes are gay and if by some miracle I decide to do cardio, I'd rather not mix it with lifting.

I worked for a party rental/florist one time when they needed extra people. It was loading and unloading chairs on my back 6-7 chairs at a time and setting them up where the party was being held. The first party was about an hour drive. we had to set up 2 days before because of how big it was. It was about 500 guests or more. Me and a few other guys would set up chairs, tables, sofas, and the bar. We spent those 2 days driving back and forth and setting up. The worst part was the people in charge would forget things so we would have to drive back and forth a few times. We only went home for about 3-4 hours to rest then had to come back to work so i would just sleep in my car. we finished setting up a few hours before the party. After those 2 and a half days we went to a hotel about an hour and a half away to set up. Same thing as the first party, but felt a bit easier, but only sleeping 6-8 hours total in 2 and a half days made me so tired that I couldn't even think straight. The set up and pick up for this party was also 2 and a half days and by the last day I was so sleep deprived and exhausted everything felt like I was in a dream. I was left sore and exhausted for almost a whole week after.

in a single session, one day of wrestling practice in high school we did such an absurd amount of conditioning I think back and wonder how the fuck none of us dropped dead


in a more spread out fashion, during a summer home when I was in college I worked at a day camp and a movie theater, so having double days sometimes and working for 13 days straight left me perpetually exhausted. Still lifted tho

I really do want to get into kayaking I know a couple that owns a dinky kayaking tour company ran off a hippy sustainable farm down on the river. I'm sure they'd be glad to make an opening for me to help out in the summer but work/school has me all fucked up idk if I could ever take the time to actually get down therr. Maybe next summer though
