    whats the difference between them ? I know a deadlift is when you keep two dumbells at the sides of ur feet and then lift them with a straight back .

    Isnt a Dumbell Squat the same thing ?

    No no no!

    Ask at a gym, read a decent book and browse the web. Or click below:

    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...s/BBSquat.html

    These are the two most fundamental exercises one can do. Learn them and love them.

    When executing the deadlift and squat, the lifter MUST keep his back arched. DO NOT bend your back. If it helps, look up. Follow the links on my previous post. The bar should rest on your traps, with your hands supporting it.

    It's a common misconception among females that weight training will make them huge and Arnold-like. Only a few (lucky?) individuals have the genetics to develop their bodies in such a way. Weight training is a great way to improve yourself, both physically and mentally.

    I assume you have pastel-pink plastic dumbells. And I won't ask why you need your hands shaped.

    Exactly, women dont have enough testosterone to develop massive physiques, natural women bodybuilders dont actually look particularly 'musclely'

    Have a look at these pics:

    http://www.lamuscle.com/docs/magazin...ges/234/55.jpg

    http://www.lamuscle.com/docs/magazin...ges/234/54.jpg

    Id hardly describe these physiques as unattractive, or 'disgusting'

    Youve probably seen some female bodybuilders on steroids, in which case theyll actually have more testosterone in their system than most men, which is why they look the way they do..
