Default Forum Shorthand

Hello everyone, I just discovered this site when looking for a hybrid strength/metcon program to enhance my Parkour performance. I discovered Gant's hybrid program, and it looked absolutely fantastic. But I am confused by the shorthand used in the post. I figured out what some was, like OHS, metcon, ME, etc. But I am wondering what do these mean: PR, PP, BS, HS, etc? I may have been doing CF for a couple months, but I still don't know what most of these mean. Can anyone help out?

Neil.. I apologize. That's probably annoying. I will try to correct that in my posts.
OHS= overhead squat
PR= personal record
PP= push press
BS= Back Squat
HS=...probably hand stand..i don't know i don't go in for that sort of thing.

I think handstand is correct. I think I have figured out what some others are
HPC=high-pull clean
PC=pull-clean
FS=front squat
P-Sn=Pull-snatch

Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

Welcome. Probably got those wrong.

HPC = HANG POWER CLEAN
PC = POWER CLEAN
PSn = POWER SNATCH

I hope that helps. Anytime you see something you aren't sure of and can't find just ask.

Some stuff from my log:

**I only log work sets. Eg. if I'm working up to a max single on snatch, I might only list one weight. I don't log warmup sets.

notation:

AxBxC= weight x sets x reps
BxC= sets x reps (Greg E. does the opposite on this forum's WOD)

gymnastical jackassery

FL=front lever
BL=back lever
prog.= progressions
HS= handstand
PL=planche

weights (all weights in kilos unless they have a # sign)

H=hang
P=power
M=muscle
C/Cl=clean
C&J= clean & jerk
SN/Sn= snatch
pos.=position (eg. 3 pos. Cl)

so...HPC= hang power clean

S=squat
F=front
B=back
OH=overhead
P= press (overhead)
PP=push press
BP=bench press
DB=dumbbell

so...OH DB P= overhead dumbbell press (thanks a lot, Louie, you MF...)

other

max=Circa max or max for day. Not a true max
ME=max effort
DE=dynamic effort
sec.=seconds (usually for rest)
alt. 3 grip= alternating 3 grips, usually on DE BP (3 sets narrow, 3 sets medium, 3 grips wide)
J=judo
JJ=ju jitsu
BJJ= Brazilian jiujitsu
tab=Tabata intervals (in my case, 6 rounds)

Yes, indeed. A very important distinction between this forum and the CF forum.

Ah yes. But surely you'd agree that a six-pack of Guiness bottles is preferable to the quest for six visible abdominal muscles.
