"Your patter is absolutely lifting."
1. Picking up, or hauling an object.
2. Moving something from it's resting state by force.
3. Working out, such as using Free-weights (dumbells) or machines to perform an-aerobic exercises to build muscle strength and endurance.
I can't wait until school gets out so I can go lift.
It's so boring here, I wish I could go do some lifting.
