This isn’t the terms and conditions and small print of a contract! I promise!

I understand that some members of the team, maybe new to gym terminology and are starting from scratch to transform their lives.

And when you start from scratch you are pursuing and learning all the time so here are some gym terms that you will find in the programme or in the gyms.

These are here for you to make sure you understand what they mean so you have the confidence that you know what you are talking about when going into a gym or if someone starts talking to.

**Gym Terms:-**

**Repetitions (reps)** – The number of times you lift and put down the weight.

**Set(s) **– The number of times you will repeat an exercise that you will complete.

**Rest** – The amount of time you will rest between a set.

**Superset** – Two exercises repeated one after the other with minimal rest between each exercise.

**Triset **– Three exercises repeated one after the another with minimal rest between each exercise.

**Giant set **– Four exercises repeated one after the other with minimal rest in between each exercise.

**Circuit** – Five or more exercises repeated one after the other with minimal rest in between each exercise.

**Tabata **– This is used in cardio workouts. It means that for 20 seconds you will do an exercise, the rest for 10 seconds before repeating the exercise again for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. This will continue for a certain amount of sets.

**45/15 **– The same concept at Tabata but you will do an exercise for 45 seconds and rest for 15 seconds and repeat for a certain number of sets.

**30s** – You will complete an exercise for 30 seconds and with no rest the next 30 seconds will be a new exercise and this will be repeated for a certain number of sets. The rest will come at the end of the last exercise of the set or circuit.

**1min** – You will complete as many repetitions of an exercise for 1 min, you may rest when you need to in that minute but then keep going until the 1 minute is complete.

**MAX reps** – This is the maximum amount of repetitions you are able to perform before you can not do any more with good form.
