    Default Glossary Of Common Gym Terms

    Glossary Of Common Gym Terms If you've ever had occasion to visit a gym, you've no doubt heard people talking about "feeling the burn" and "pumping up." But did you ever wonder what people were really saying? Here are some common terms and phrases that will help you to learn what is really going on in the gym.

    1. In The Zone - Tired and incoherent during a workout. Commonly described out of the gym as "spaced out."

    2. Extended Warm-Up - 20 minutes at low tension on the stationary bike then 20 minutes of casual stretching thena shower.

    3. "Just One More Rep" - Said to a spotter during a set. Really means: "Lift the weight for me."

    4. Forced Reps - For the reluctant exerciser, every single rep of a workout is a forced rep. This is especially true when they have a mean trainer.

    5. Hack Squat - The position a cat gets into when he's coughing up a hairball, commonly mistaken as a leg exercise.

    6. "Can I work in with you?" - Translation: "Can I remove all your weights and sweat all over your bench?"

    7. Drop Sets - What sometimes happens after doing a hard set of dumbell bench presses. A triple drop set occurs when you drop two dumbells and yourself to the floor.

    8. Bulking Up - Name for the phase during which an otherwise healthy trainer will try to get bigger and fatter on purpose.

    9. "I'm maxing out" - Translation: "I was going for 6 reps but I put too much weight on the bar and only got 1."

    10. Cool-down - Sit on a bench and drink from a water bottle while talking about how much more you'll lift next time.

    11. Olympic Bar - Athlete's nightclub.

    12. E-Z Bar - "How dare you! I'm not that type of bar."

    13. Squat rack - The lonliest piece of equipment in the gym.

    14. "It's all you!" - Said by spotter during the last few reps of a set. Translatation: "It's mostly me."

    15. Pro-hormones - Hormones that have lost their amateur status.

    16. Meal Replacement Supplement - Cold pizza and warm beer.

    17. Clean and Press - Surprisingly enough, it's a shoulder exercise, not laundry instructions. A variation of it is even known as the Hang Clean and Press.

    18. High Intensity Interval Training - Occurs when there are two or more flights of stairs leading up to the gym.

    19. Skullcrushers - An exercise where you make like you're going to bash your own head in with a barbell, a.k.a. lying tricep extensions.

    20. "Hold the contraction at the top and squeeze for 10 seconds" - Said by a personal trainer when he or she wants to punish the client for missing a session.

    Now that you've got an idea of what is being said at the gym, you'll be able to converse comfortably with the natives. You will be completely understood in any gym in the world when you walk in and say "I just did two sets of high intensity intervals and now I'm ready for some forced reps" or "I'm taking a lot of meal replacement supplements because I'm bulking up."

    Gym lingo is an important aspect of making your gym experience both entertaining and safe. There’s a lot of crazy shit that goes on in most gyms


    1) The Joker: This is the lady that wears a full-on clown mask each time she comes to the gym.


    2) The Tea-Bagger: This is the guy who spots his buddy on the bench press, and thinks it’s necessary to get so close that he’s actually straddling his workout partners face. Gross but it happens all the time!


    3) The 7-Day Traveler: These are the guys that carry around their oversized duffle bags from machine to machine the entire duration of their workout. They have so much unnecessary shit in there, you’d think they were going on vacation for a week.
    4) The Moth-Man: This is the guy that wears the shirt that’s been attacked by moths. He’ll spend $30 a month on a gym membership, but won’t go to KMart and buy 10 new shirts for $5ea.
    5) Cardio Queens: These are the people that spend all their time on the cardio equipment and never physically change. They usually get great enjoyment from taking 45-60 minute “cortisol showers” each time they do their cardio.



    6) The Disappearing Heart: This happens when you sit on a bench or seat with a sweaty ass. When you stand up, your ass leaves an imprint of a heart on the bench, and within 10 seconds it magically disappears. Now some people’s heart looks more like a round bar-table, but we’ll save that for another post.


    7) The Crash-Test Dummy: This is the guy that feels that it’s necessary to wear every piece of protective brace available. He’ll often be seen wearing gloves, lifting straps, elbow braces, knee braces, ankle braces, and of course a weight belt. I’ve even seen some guys lifting weights with a mouthpiece in.
    8) The Illusionist: This is the guy that only wears shirts one-size too small. With the extra small shirt on, he gives off the illusion that he’s bigger than he actually is. That sneaky bastard!


    9) Sticky Fingers: We’ve all seen these people. These are the people that go to use the bathroom and don’t think it’s necessary to wash their hands before going back onto the workout floor and grab all the handles and weights. Definitely think about this one next time you feel like rubbing your eyes and face with your hands while training.
    10) The Crop Duster: This is that person who lays that silent fart in the middle of the workout floor and then knowingly scurries across the workout room spraying everybody that’s in his or her path. (


    11) Spiderman: This is the guy that wears the skin-tight spandex shirts while he works out. His reasoning must be that there is so much wind-resistance in the gym that all the excess wind-drag from a regular shirt would hinder his bench press and bicep curl performance. Go climb a wall Spidey!


    12) The Night-Club Bouncer: This is the person that sits on a machine or bench for hours and will not move. And if that wasn’t bad enough, they make up some B.S. excuse as to why you can’t work in with them. Guess that’s why they don’t have a real job, right? Ouch!
    13) The Fish-Out-Of-Water: This is that person who decides that form and technique are never a concern. Whether they are squatting, pressing, rowing, or curling, they flail around like a fish-out-of-water using nothing but momentum to lift the weight, and wonder why their back is sore the next morning.
    14) The Walking Waterfall: This is the person that sweats profusely on everything. Typically these people begin to sweat just from changing in the locker room. Small lakes have been known to form around them if they remain in one spot for too long. )
    15) The Labor Room: This is also sometimes referred to as the Brothel, because you’re either going to experience one of two sounds the loud grunts similar to a mother giving birth, or moans that make you feel like you’ve just stumbled upon an underground Brothel. Either way, we all know who these people are and have heard their ludicrous “I’m lifting so heavy I have to moan and grunt” sounds quite often.




    16) The Peeping-Tom: This is the pervert that comes to the gym everyday and always decides to go on the back row of the cardio equipment. He does nothing more then walk on the treadmill and look at all the eye-candy in front of him. You’re not fooling anyone and we all know who you are!


    17) The Slip N’ Slide: This is that person who sweats like a pig on a bench and doesn’t think they need to wipe it up. If you catch someone doing this, you have my permission to take off your sweaty sock and slap them across the face with it.
    18) The Fruit Basket: This is in reference to all those guys who find it necessary to wear biker shorts or spandex to they gym while they workout. I don’t care if you rode your bike to the gym. Roll up a pair of real gym shorts, stuff them in your bike fanny pack and CHANGE! We’re all tired of looking at that compact-little fruit basket when you lay down to do bench presses.


    19) The California Raisins: These are the group of old guys that do nothing more than sit in the sauna every day. They can often be spotted by their wrinkly skin and over-developed man boobs. The stationary bike and a few push-ups would be a much better investment of time for these guys!

    20) The Porn Star: Dressed like they've just filmed a vegan bukkake scene during a bilkram yoga session, these fine specimens strategically leave snail trails of exotic wonders on every seat that they perch on, then pay scrupulous attention via multi angled mirror reflections to catch any thirsty male victims succumbing to such deadly biological pheromone bait. Other tricks up their g-spotted sleeve include romanian deadlifting in ultra sheer lululemon in front just as you're attempting a 1.M.R bench, dribbling water drown their crop tops before launching into cable flyes with ultra slow negatives, and hitching up their already one size too small tights as a prelude to spectacular displays of barbell hip thrusts complete with colourmatched bitch pad.
