    Your favorite workout and gym slang. Let it rip

    Hey everyone,
    As well as an avid gym rat I'm also a writer and doing a little research. I usually post things of a serious and respectful nature here but thought this would be appropriate and perhaps a little fun for us all.
    I was wondering what some of your favorite terms and expressions are in the gym. Some people have some pretty creative expressions for training specific body parts like "baking some hams" for working hamstrings as well as some humorous nick names for body parts, gym equipment, steroids , and other people in the gym etc. Any and all input is helpful.
    I'd love to hear some of yours so if you'd entertain me on this it would be much appreciated and I'm sure entertaining for our fellow members.
    Thanks in advance guys
    LET IT RIP!

    lats being called wings
    legs called wheels, trunks
    arms called guns, cannons,
    forearms called hammers..

    i don't really talk to anyone at the gym though.. so i don't know much about what people say.

    Training shoulders/traps is my favorite followed by chest. I workout alone unless i need a spot. But i'm constantly telling myself before sets and during sets that "it's time to go to work!"
