    supine hip extensions w/ leg curl

    Not that that helped a whole lot. You need a vid for that one.

    BF = Body Fat (it's not an exercise, but it is often discussed)

    135 X 4 X 6 means
    weight X sets X reps

    Erik has Noel demo'ing exercises on his site for clients.

    You can just google or search youtube, and you'll probably come up with something.

    There is this one, but i start with the ball closer to my butt.

    What about when it's written like this:
    3x8 w/120s rest

    Is that 3 sets, 8 reps?

    You have to be really coordinated to do that one. Erik lists it in the Basic Primer at the end. What are you working your hamstrings, and bootie?

    well it can depend... it can be a one rep max, or your 10rep max at a certain weight...

    basically just your personal best...

    so for example, squats, you've been working on them and have been doing 3x5... you've been stuck at a weight of 135, never surpassed. then you go and get it for 140, you just had a PR, set a new personal record for that exercise.

    does that make sense? :unsure:
