Hello Coaching Corner Members –
I have received a few email request with questions regarding what particular abbreviations mean. I want to make sure you can read & completely understand the Weekly WOD’s. I will continue to add to this list over time and leave it for you to either print or reference back to as needed.
SW = Swing
If you see SW x 20 (this would mean 20 – 2 handed swings)
If you see SW x 10/10 or x 10 R/L (this would mean 10 swing per side – 1 handed swings)
1H SW = 1 handed swings
2H SW = 2 handed swings
H2H SW = Hand to hand swings (alternating swings or transfers between hands each rep)
DSW or dbl SW = Double kb swings
TGU = Turkish GetUp
1/2GU = Turkish GetUp (only up to the tall sit position)
SQ = Squat (could be bodyweight or goblet)
FSQ = Front Squat (can be barbell if you select to go heavy, or hold a bell on one side in the rack)
DSQ or dbl SQ = Double kb squat
CL = Clean
MP = Military Press
C&P = Clean and Press
PP = Push Press
If you see a D or dbl in front of any of these it would be double kb
SN = Snatch
HP = High Pull
If you see HP x 10 (this means that you hold both hands on bell and pull up right from dead start to standing)
If you see HP x 10/10 or 10 R/L (this would mean that you do 10 reps on the right and then left)
DHP = Double kb high pull
DL = Deadlift
SLDL = Single leg Deadlift
C&J = Clean and Jerk
BW = Bodyweight
KB = Kettlebell
BB = Barbell
DB = Dumbbell
Dynamic Lunges = Jumping or Explosive Lunges
Walking Lunges = Forward walking Lunges
Lunges = Either Fwd or Rev Lunges in place
If you see Heavy Deadlifts x 5/3 = 5 reps / 3 sets
If you see a Circuit = Do all exercises prior to rest.
If you see Stacking = Do one exercise then rest, then do same exercise and add next exercise then rest, continue.
If you see Stacked Pressing = Holding two bells in one hand for a single arm press.
If you see Ladders = Do the listed rungs of the ladder. Ex. 1,2,3 or 2, 4, 6 and can be full ladder 1 up to 10 and reverse.
Hope these helps, and as I mention I will add more over time. If you find other exercises or abbreviations you are not familiar with, please feel free to message me.
