Using a sledgehammer like that is A LOT of work. Do concrete work if you want practice or slam rods into rail road ties. It looks like they are building a sweet cabin.

you might feel that tomorrow, he won’t. people have no idea how much energy the human body can expend in relation to the paltry items put into it. it’s like magic.

Expending energy doesn't mean there isn't damage due to forces on joints and bones

Lol, yah dude. You sound like a real expert on the human body. That guy won't even be able to keep that pace up for 7 hours in one day. No fucking way. Hammer boy is gunna be spent by lunch at best.

Can you imagine? 3 guys, taking shifts, that structure would be together in the time it took for that guy to pull his jackhammer out of the truck.

No goy, if you don't want to be fat go to the gym and work isolation machines to get big shiny biceps! That's how you know someone is really strong!

That's cool. The guy with the hammer isn't going to have a backbone left after a few years of swinging a hammer like that. People forget that power tools aren't necessarily though made to be faster all of the time.

Yeah, if that guy keeps it going the way he is in the gif he might die, too.

A structure that isn't a piece of shit. If I'm a developer building 25 units on a subdivided farm I just bought everything will be framed in 1x3 and slapped together as cheap as possible. With fresh siding and shingles and roll out lawn I will sell it for exactly the same price as a properly built house, in fact more cause I can slap in a bay window and 5 extra bedrooms since those ^^^ the price. If I'm building a structure for myself that I intend to use in 25 years I'm going have a totally different set of criteria. This is why tract homes (especially those constructed after ~1975) are shit.

Too right. Most contractors are conmen. People have no idea what quality is anymore.

I could probably drive those nails in with 15oz framing hammer in rough the same amount of time with less work.

Also if your not going for blinding fucking speed. You should be sliding your hand up that shaft on your upswing to get better leverage as your bringing the weight up the hammer up then just let it fall let the hammer do the work. These guys swinging it like its a fucking sword.

All, these reddit kiddies who have never worked a day of construction and have never used a sledge. Bonus points if ya think that guy is gunna last all day at that pace.
