I should have trademarked that at the outset....

Gant Grimes: Thank you for that notation glossary. This helps quite a bit!

hey Gant, when you say singles and doubles in your program, do you mean sets of 1-2 reps?

Dave,
What's your opinion on "strongman tomfoolery" (ST)?

As a very "weak performer" in this regard, I like to think of it as remedial leverage and gravity therapy but to each his own.

Yes that is what he means.

I saw Greg's tag line and you can't forget the venerated AKP or arse kicking potential.

No. Some things, like the word "Texas," need to be spelled out every time. The abbreviation just doesn't have the same flavor.

Is there a KJ? (Kettlebell Juggling?)

Also as one of my offline trainer buddies likes to call the stuff that trainers try and do in the gym with 100 core products....NT (Ninja Training)

When one of his clients asked why they weren't using a bosu ball and jumping all around and just doing boring lunges and using boring weights....he asked "Do you want to be a Ninja or look good in your pants?".....love that line.
