Hi;
Does someone of you guys know what is the meaning of "ab lab" in this sentence?
This gym junkie was so determined to show off her time in the ab lab, she was only wearing a boob tube and matching hot pants made from mesh.

The only word that comes to my knowledge for ab lab is "abnormal laboratory" and, of course, it doesn't match in this context.
I hope somebody can help me. I need to translate it into Spanish.
Thanks in advance. Bye!

    "Ab lab," in my reading, is short for "abdominal laboratory." It functions as a metaphor for the part of the gym in which there is a lot of ab/abdominal equipment.

    I'm guessing that the reason the writer uses that is to avoid being redundant.

    Saying "This gym junkie was so determined to show off her time in the ab lab..." is better than saying "This gym junkie was so determined to show off her time at the gym..."
