“Benches for the wenches” (weightlifting saying)

“Benches for the wenches” is a weightlifting saying meaning that women (wenches) will love a man’s body after some bench presses. “Curls for the girls” is a similar saying that has been cited in print since at least 1981.
“Beginning lifters male especially seem to concentrate on bench and curls (benches for the wenches, curls for the girls ... gee why do they do that?)” was cited in print in 1991.
Other weightlifting sayings include “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,” “traps for the chaps” and “tris for the guys.”
Wikipedia: Bench press
The bench press is an upper body strength training exercise that consists of pressing a weight upwards from a supine position. The exercise works the pectoralis major as well as supporting chest, arm, and shoulder muscles such as the anterior deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis, scapulae fixers, trapezii, and the triceps. A barbell is generally used to hold the weight, but a pair of dumbbells can also be used.
