Seth Feroce Smashes 20,000-Pound Challenge in Record Time
Seth Feroce, a retired bodybuilding champ, is still flexing his muscles, proving that he’s got the strength to match his physique. Recently, he took on a weightlifting challenge of his own design, inviting fans to join him in lifting a whopping 20,000 pounds across three exercises of their choice.
Feroce, known for his candid rants on bodybuilding topics, remains a gym enthusiast, crafting intense workouts that would make even the most seasoned lifters sweat. His latest challenge? Lift a total of 20,000 pounds using squats, deadlifts, and bench press.
“The video you’re about to watch is me completing 20,000 pounds lifted cumulatively between squats, deadlifts, and bench press with 135. In order to get to 20,000 pounds with 135 pounds, you have to get 150 reps,” Feroce explained before diving into the challenge, which he completed in a mere six minutes.
Feroce’s strategy was simple: choose three exercises and a manageable weight to crank out rapid reps. “You have to pick a weight on the barbell and lift that cumulatively to get to 20,000 pounds. Any exercises you want so I was like okay, bench, squat, deadlift. I can do all those and I can do a lot of them, anywhere between 135 and 225 pounds but how quick can you get that done?”
After the grueling workout, Feroce reflected on the challenge, “Six minutes and one second. I lost count and I ended up doing 155 reps with 135 to get a grand total of 20,000 pounds, in like 20,950 pounds or some sh*t like that I think is what it was. Passed. Put myself through it. My thing is, I think this is one that everybody could do.”
The gauntlet has been thrown. Feroce is encouraging fans to take on the fitness challenge, sharing their completion times. It’s not just about strength and endurance, but also strategy – choosing a weight that can be lifted repeatedly is key.
