J Reps (Johnston Reps) - Where you perform the bottom half to fatigue (not failure), and then perform the top half. You will find
the top half is now as challenging as the bottom half, and the top half also becomes as productive in developing strength and
recruiting muscle fibers as the bottom half.
Judging Rounds - In the universally accepted and applied IFBB system of judging, bodybuilders are evaluated in three distinctly different rounds of judging, plus a final posedown round for only the top five competitors after the first three rounds have been adjudicated. In Round One, they are viewed semi-relaxed from the front, both sides, and back. In Round Two, the competitors are viewed in groups and individually in seven well-defined compulsory poses. And in Round Three, they perform their own uniquely personal free-posing routines to their own choice of music. Overall, this use of three rounds of judging and a posedown round results in a very fair choice of the final winners of a bodybuilding championship.
Juice - A slang term for anabolic steroids. Other slang words for steroids include gear, sauce, roids.
