    Does anyone know of an acronym site that deals with acronyms for lifting?


    I have been reading some posts here, and am having a hard time understanding a lot of it without knowing what these acronyms mean.

    just post the ones you dont know and we'll tell you something completely wrong. it's just that simple.

    db = dumbbell
    bb = barbell
    1RM = 1 rep max (the most weight you can do once)
    ss = superset (two or more exercises done back to back without rest)
    ds = drop set (repeated sets of the same exercise with a decreasing amount of weight; done without resting between sets, except to change weight)
    pl = powerlift
    s/b/d = squat/bench/dead
    plflb = pur loves fucking little boys
    oly = olympic
    bw = bodyweight
    pr = personal record
    p/c/f = protein/carbs/fat
    OL = olympic lift (clean & jerk and snatch)
    asit = ass shot in thong
    kiss = keep it simple, stupid

    An acronym is an abbreviation that is turned into a pronounceable word, whereas an abbreviation is just letters that are spoken individually. Many of these terms are abbreviations and not acronyms.
