Default Building Bow Strength?

Hey I am a new Bow hunter. I am a freshman in college. I am not weak but I am not used to pulling a bow back. What are some good ways to pull a bow back. My bow is from 60-70# draw weight. Thanks for any help.

just do it a few times every day... just like regular weight training/ lifting it takes a little bit to build up the muscles.

Drawing the bow back is a good exercise, but makes for a bad day if you let go. Since you are in college I assume you have access to some type of workout equipment. A rowing machine or an eliptical (use your arms more than your legs) would work some of the muscles you should be concentrating on.
