Re: RXD meaning

Rx'd is an American term meaning as prescribed; all exercises are performed at specified weights/reps/distances etc.

Re: RXD meaning

Simon, a common abbreviation for "Prescription drug" or "pharmacy" in the US is a capital letter R with a lower case x superimposed on it. Rx is shorthand for prescriptions, ergo "as rx'd" = "as prescribed". Where the symbol of Rx for prescriptions came from is for some etymological whiz to enlighten us.
