“Traps for the chaps” (weightlifting saying)

Entry in progress—B.P.

“Curls for the girls” is a similar saying that has been cited in print since at least 1981. Other weightlifting sayings include “benches for the wenches,” “bis for the guys,” “calves for the chavs,” “cuts for the sluts,” “flies for the guys,” “glutes for the sloots” “lats for the brats,” “no pecs, no sex,” “planks for the skanks,” “quads for the broads,” “rows for the hoes,” “squats for the hots,” “squats for the thots,” “squats for the twats” and “tris for the guys.”

squats for the tots
traps for the chaps
calves for the chavs
rows for the hoes
quads for the Todd’s
pecs for the secks
back for the blacks (no racist)
shrugs for the hugs
EDIT:
lats for the brats
