Default Bodybuilding Glossary .. Help Add to it

I thought Eric made a good suggestion with the bodybuilding glossary so I am going to roll with it. Please post any terms you think are used commonly on the boards and I will make it into a post and stick somewhere in the future. This way we don't have to keep explaining the terms to new comers, we can just point to the glossary.

Heres some I collected:

PWO = post work out
HIT= High intensity training
HIIT= High intensity interval training
GI= Glycemic Index
HST= Hypertrophy Specific Training
BW= Body Weight
RM=rep maximum (maximum weight at that number of reps)
PCT=post cycle therapy
CNS = central nervous system
BCAA=branched chain amino acid
GVT=German volume training
PH - Prohormone
PS - Prosteroid
AAS - Anabolic Androgenic Steroid
ROM - Range of Motion
CEE - Creatine Ethyl Ester
CM - Citrulline Malate
NO - Nitric Oxide
BF%= Body Fat %
BMR= Basal metabolic rate
EFA= essential fatty acid

Abduction = moving a limb away from the midline of the body. An example is moving an arm from the side of the body to shoulder height.
Adduction = moving a limb toward the midline of the body. An example is bringing the arm to the side from an extended position at the shoulder.
Aerobic Exercise = With Oxygen. Prolonged moderate intensity exercise that uses up oxygen at a rate at or below the the level that cardiorespiratory system can replenish it. Examples are running, walking, cycling, and swimming. Develops cardorespirotory fitness and is used to burn fat to achieve maximum defintion, but can be highly catabolic if done in excess.
Agonist = muscle that is contracting during a movement and which is primarily responsible for the movement of a certain bodypart.
Anerobic Exercise = higher intensity exercise than aerobic exercise which uses up oxygen more quickly than it can be replenished in the muscles. Bodybuilding is anerobic exercise and it burns up muscle glycogen to supply energy to the working muscles.
Antagonist = a muscle that counteracts the agonist. It lengthens when the agonist contracts.
Circuit Training = going form on exercise to another (10 to 20) as quickly as possible in a circuit around the gym, keeping the pulse rate high. A rest period of two to five minutes is taken and then the circuit is repeated for a planned number of times.
Compound Exercise = Also called a basic exercise. Multi-joint movement that involves a large number of muscles (and generally the largest muscle groups like thighs, back or chest) and enable you to lift the heaviest weights. Examples are squats, bench presses, deadlifts, and pull-ups.
Concentric Movement = the part of a movement where the muscle shortens or contracts. It is the lifting part of the exercise such as when you press a barbell from your chest. Also called the positive.
Eccentric Movement = the part of a movement where the muscle elongates. When you lower the weight back to the starting position. Also called the negative.

Default Volume and Intensity

These two terms I think begginners will see thrown around a lot on the boards, but it is very difficult to arrive at a consistent definition for them.

IMO, they are frequently mixed up. Expecially, people talk about ways of increasing intensity when they are really talking about volume and density. But I realize other people may think differently on this. Trying to keep it simple, here are the definitions I've arrived at. If anyone has any thoughts on this, please speak up.

Volume = The amount of work performed in an exercise session. Traditionally calculated as the amount of weight lifted multiplied by the number of sets multiplied by the number of reps (i.e. total reps), time under tension and amount of rest between sets can also be considered as ways to increase or decrease volume.

Intensity = Normally expressed as the percentage of weight you are lifting relative to your one rep maximum. In other words, how much weight is on the bar in relation to your maximal ability.
