just build muscle he creates muscle. You can't be a robot."

As I said before, lifting helps in muscle development, especially the upper and lower back. Heavy cleans, high pulls, and dead-hang snatches, I have found, are some of the best exercises for trapezius development. Even though I am by no means exceptionally strong, these exercises are in part responsible for the improvements I have made recently. I still include them in my workouts, even when I do not include lifting.

- Red Lerille

Note: This is from 1961. "Lifting" in the above quote is referring to Olympic lifting.

"It is harder to be a lifter than a bodybuilder...lifting is purely masculine whereas bodybuilding entails feminine traits. Bodybuilding reminds me of a woman getting ready to go somewhere. Can you tell me that greasing your body up and posing in front of a mirror is masculine? A bodybuilder puts strength secondary to his physique, whereas the lifter puts strength foremost because it is more masculine to do so."

Doug Hepburn, Taken from Ironman, September 1954.
