    Stick with basic compound movements using free weights. Heavy poundage. Low reps, and high sets.

    Compound movements involve at least two joints like squats, rows, presses or pullups. Don't waste your time with curls, extensions, raises or flys. (Bicep curls are allowed, but they really are extra). Although deadlifts just affect the hips, they are great for adding thickness to your entire body and giving you a cute butt.

    These exercises absolutely require warm-up sets. I learned that the hard way, again, a couple weeks ago.

    You’ would be hard-pressed to find a single weight-training movement that’s more complete than the deadlift. It’s not just an upper or lower back exercise, or a grip exercise, or a posterior chain exercise, or a core exercise; it’s an everything exercise. To that end, it’s a must-have in any lifter, athlete, or weekend warrior’s training arsenal.

    I'm not that knowledgeable in kinesiology so I had to check it out. The dead lift is considered a compound exercise.

    LOL.

    How fat are you then?

    I love the little self-declarations some folks use.

    So, what's the difference between a cub, bear, and a fat ass? How do we quantify the labeling?

    I have no idea what you're working with. You're a pictureless., etc.

    First thing you need to learn is how to do your home work. Get pictured, Get profiled. Clearly state your goals.

    What's the bear label mean to you?
    What's the cub label mean to you?

    My observations at the gym lead me to believe that in order to obtain what I think of as a "bear" physique, one should load up as many 45 pound weights as possible, then throw your body weight to lift the load very quickly, using momentum to move the weights a few times -- and then proceed to another lifting station, leaving the 45 pound weights for someone else to put away.

    The problem is, what I think of as a "bear" physique may not be a widely accepted definition, and although I could not find any scholarly articles on the subject of "bear" culture, there is an entry in Wikipedia. It states that "Some are heavy-set; some project an image of working-class masculinity in their grooming and appearance, though neither of these are requirements or unique indicators . . . and there is ongoing debate in bear communities about what constitutes a bear."

    Damn, I thought we were talking about making a wild animal from clay or some other construction material. My mistake.

    LMAO. TOO funny.

    It was a good read.

    I'm always baffled by folks who say they don't want to be stereotyped, yet,...they label themselves.
