I would consider the bear as GPP as long as you keep the weights light. In the past I have done sets of 6 with the bear and it is pretty tough. Just keep the rest to a minimum, I would say 30-60 seconds. Try to decrease the rest periods with every session you do.

One technique that I enjoyed with the bear was to count the sets I did in 20 minutes. And then try to beat that number the next time I did the bear. Good way to progress.
