I think that some of you clearly have some very old-fashioned notions that frankly sound like a '70s popular culture notion of "weight lifting". I don't think it's valid to assert that this antiquated Arnold Schwartzenegger stereotype is "generally" what "weight lifting" is about.
Who's talking about an "antiquated Arnold Schwartzenegger stereotype"? So far as I noticed - I never mentioned any specific types of weight lifting at all. In any case, what I'm talking about is what you'll see virtually everybody doing when you walk into the local gym. You may be doing something different, and that's fine.
