Weightlifting Slang and Abbreviations

The goal of this thread is to accumulate weightlifting slang and abbreviations to serve as a resource for beginners (or just so that there can be less confusion in general, no need to ask what an acronym stands for) and also to standardize said slang. Certainly I am not the sole authority on this to...

Topic: The Best Back Exercise?
Replies: 28

My favorite pure back exercise would probably be the bent-over row, but recently my favorite exercise has been deadlifting which I use primarily to target legs (I couple them with squats) though their benefits to the back I can feel for sure.

Change of pace

Well, I've been thinking about it, and it's been very hard to motivate myself to get into the gym for upper body recently. In fact, I haven't been in a little while. But I was just evaluating myself in the mirror recently, and am thinking about a different focus for upper body for the next few comin...

I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere, maybe somewhere on this site, that one should wait between 1hr and 2hrs after eating (ideally about 1.5hrs) in order for insulin levels to return to normal and the body to be prepared for weightlifting, but I'm sure longer waits are fine too.

Tim is definitely right, except I would combine squat and deadlift (if you can do squat then you have the equipment for deadlift) as I feel that they are very natural complements. Good luck!

Well I've never puked from a workout, but I remember the first couple of times I really squatted heavy, boy was I sore for 2-3 days afterwards. It was kind of funny though, my roommate (lifting buddy) and I were making comments about how sore our asses were that I'm pretty sure nearly everyone else ...

You're supposed to go 90% at least for each sprint in your workout. Also, each sprint should be shorter, 30 seconds at most. If you're running 300m in 30 seconds then you're already in incredible shape, so I see that as unlikely. You're supposed to run (I think) between 60 and 220m for each sprint.

Squatting is one of the best exercises for the body, and while I love deadlift, both is much more effective than only one. Both? I am a 47 yo male, overweight and (frankly) in pretty bad shape, doing a full body routine 3x / week. I am a little afraid of deadlifting 3x / week, let alone deadlifting...

Can a muscle selectively contract fibers in a certain region of a muscle?
No, I believe that's something covered in this, but I could be wrong.

Well I tried the different warmup sequence, and while I thought it was okay, I didn't really like it, to be honest, I kinda like the jump in weight from warmup to work set, makes me feel like I'm really lifting, and I never get that 'oh shi***' feeling from my work sets of 205lbs (though today I did...

Well, today I was feeling a lot better, though still not 100%, and unfortunately, my resulting overconfidence was my undoing... read on upper body lift- bench 135x5 155x3 175x2 195x1 (all for warmup, as Jeff suggested in my feedback, I'll respond there my feelings on it) 1s 8r 205lbs (had a random g...
