3.
A manly hug between to bros.

A bro hug is executed my first initiating a mid-five/handshake, in which the bros then pull into eachother from hand contact. Then, each bro swings one arm around the back of the other bro, and gives 1-3 open palmed slaps on the opposing bro's shoulder, all while the mid-five/handshake is still interlocked, effectively sandwiching the arms between the bros.

It's hard to mess up a bro hug, but it is often done in one of two ways:

1) Not being rigid or forceful enough.

2) Using both arms to hug (that's gay, bro).

3) Holding it too long (timing is everything, bro).
The Bro Hug must be seen, not heard or read.

4.
An epic hug between brofriends. It's so epic it's awesome, and nobody will ever lampoon a brohug for fear of social annihilation.

Often takes place at inappropriate or random times when the emotion of a brofriendship becomes too much to bear.

Brohugs are never awkward, and always involve full on body contact, rather than awkward hovering or back patting.

Do not fear the brohug, for it is beautiful.

6.
Executed when two males are too insecure in their sexuality to just hug another man with both arms.
Why are those two guys so scared of being seen as gay that they need to bro hug each other? Why dont they just act like men and hug each other?
