I noticed a bunch of updates here, ExRx used to define Chin/Pull in some terms where it seemed to be dependent on the path the body took relative to the arms or something like that.

Now it seems like it's been changed to reflect the "chin = underhand/supine" and "pull = overhand/prone" grip-type definition which has been meme-infecting bodybuilding.com

Am I missing something or did they just make a huge change in stance?

I also noticed that one of the exercises you used to have listed in the lats section does not seem to be linked from there. Was it taken down, or am I overlooking it? The page is currently still up even though it's not on the list anymore. I'm going to take a screenshot to prove that it existed in case the page is removed in response to this thread.

Is ExRx going to try and pretend that they've never called an overhand grip a chin-up? Are they just going to go mainstream and back on everything they stood for? Are they afraid of the controversy?

I found links to how they used to be represented. Looking there I found a bunch of other pages which still list the lats as the target muscle, but which no longer appear on the lats section linked on the top. As of this post, here's another screenshot to prove it exists:

Is this your question?

If it is, then your question is redundant. I'm sure you've been told before that the forum has no influence over the main site.

If you seriously want an answer, you need to direct it to the sites owner.

Keep fighting the powerlifters-that-be and their flagrant attempts to cover up the chin/pull conspiracy, dude. You're the Bob Woodward of exrx.net and now all you have to do is find your undercover informant, Deep Squat.

As usual, the detail:information ratio is approaching infinity.

Why are you telling us? You think we can do anything that you can't do? The forum is read by forum members. If you have a problem with the main site, contact James, the site owner. There are "contact" links in several places in the main site.

Yup, the rest is context.

I figured they might hang out here, and it's probably good to get opinions from forumgoers before making any personal appeals like that.

The tool of whom?

I'm scared of him! And I was wondering about others' opinions on this.
