Men of reddit. what makes you feel manly? pm mo weird stuH - 4h Carrying my sister's kids (two nephews and a niece) around. They always ask me to pick them up whenever I see them, so I started lifting weights a couple years ago just so that I could continue doing it as they got bigger. lt worked out as I intended. I got a lot stronger and now the boys are nine years old and I can still carry one of them under each arm. They love it since their mother can't pick them up anymore. and their happiness makes me feel good too.
