What are all those Acronyms?

It is pretty normal in the strength and fitness world to see acronyms, shortened words and nicknames for exercises. We write warmups,workouts and programs daily and most things are repeated.  It just makes sense to condense things.  While i was in the Marine Corps almost everything had acronyms it just made things easier.  I have made a list of common and not common acronyms and maybe some I made up.
