Gym terms

I just got home from the gym and that gave me the idea to write about a few “gym terms”.  lets start with gym, when I first moved to the US I did not know what a gym was, I knew fitness studios – that’s what we call those places back in Germany – but gym, as in the abbreviation of gymnasium  – no idea, or rather the wrong idea as Gymnasium is a form of high-school in Germany.

Anyway, I got gym sorted out and have morphed into somewhat of a gym rat over the last couple of years.  A gym rat is somebody who frequents a gym regularly.  Sometimes people like that are also called gym bunnies – but when in doubt I personally prefer to be a gym rat over a gym bunny.  Bunnies just don’t portrait the idea of a strong body all that well.

Other than working out one might see a ripped body or two at the gym.  Ripped means very low body fat therefore showing of the muscles nicely.   Sometimes one sees a nice six-pack – abdominal muscles that are so well developed that they can be seen as separate muscles strands. It is mostly guys who sport six packs (also called washboard)

Ideally all those muscles are achieve without juice – anabolic steroids that help guys to bulk up but tend to have nasty side effect also known as roid rage (Aggressive behavior after taking large amounts of steroids).
