Are you kidding? Is there really a question as to whether pushing a 3000lb object would grow muscles? Here's a goddamn good option/solution. Buy a bike or try walking. I live in the midwest. It's a 3 mile round trip for me to go to the grocery store. 3 months out of the year(now until march) it's freezing cold...literally. I go to the store just about everyday. How do I get there? On my fucking feet even though it's cold and far. The return trip is great! 50lbs of groceries to carry. Boy, do I love that<sarcasm> You live in LA where it's 70 all the fucking time. Suck it up, dude. Walk or ride a bike. 10 miles is a piece of cake on a bike. I hate those things, but you do what you've got to do. 6 year school? Where the fuck are you planning on going. Sure, I've taken 6 1/2 years to graduate, but I also have 2 degrees, 5 classes I took for fun and 7 I ended up not needing and I've taken 4 classes in the last 1 1/2 years. If we break this down, I should have been out in 4 1/2 to 5 yrs with TWO degrees. It's not a 6 year deal, bro. Hogg's right. Go to home depot or something. You'll make more. Point is, instead of bitching about how everything is fucked up, do something about it. The bicycle being the best idea. Then you could build your legs everywhere you go.
