    Weirdest workout words.

    What are some of the most whimsical words used in the gym/fitness world? I hear some odd ones from time to time and quickly forget what they were. Remind me!

    the buttstuff...never interested.
    Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!

    Not so sure whimsical, but I attend a lot of classes at the gym and instructors are always saying "burning calories now" or "we are toning." I tend to find those pretty funny.

    'building lean muscle'

    'supine glute lift' vs 'bridge'
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    I will give my list of expressions:

    "Pick a spot on the wall!!!!!" said a lot when I used to workout for football. What does that mean, exactly? Stare at it?
    "Buttercup" = said a lot in my current gym, in reference to special snowflakes that think squats are just too hard.
    "EMOM, Rx, AMRAP" and all the Cfit inspired words that actually came from the military. "We are gonna EMOM on your mom", etc
    "Rip-snorting" = said by NZ lifting partner. "That's a rip-snorting snatcher there mate." It all sounds vaguely dirty.

    I got plenty more....
    "They now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry." - Thomas Jefferson, 1826

    Oh yes "Suck it up, Buttercup" is a popular one.

    I've always heard it as, "Cowboy up, cupcake".

    "butt wink"

    "Dude, I just got wheysted!"

    "I can't squat because my glutes aren't firing."
    In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

    I've been pondering on the word 'swole'

    There is a guy I see every week who clearly has been doing a very 'successful' hypertrophy program but his upper body literally looks swollen beyond any utilitarion value. I don't know if that can be totally a program thing or if you have to juice to look like that.
