Could there be a thread about terminology specificity in relation to some adjectives here? For example with the term 'lying'
In many cases "lying" is used in different contexts. It doesn't specify whether one is lying on one's back or one's chest or even the side.
This is a suggestion I am wondering if we could contact the ExRx article writers about. I'll provide some article links to explain what I mean:
"lying" > "supine lying" : http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Bac ... ngRow.html
(wish we had more pages like this, along the lines of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4i8SpNgzA4&t=20
it is an open-chain light-weight version of bodyweight rows like http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Bac ... neRow.html
which would, unlike prone rowing, have less of the chest compression involved with chest-supported, and less of the erector exhaustion involved with unsupported)
This shows doing a cable row while lying on one's back, from a high pulley. You can also do a cable row while lying on your chest while using a low pulley, which would be a "prone lying" cable row.
"lying" > "prone lying" : http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Bac ... ngRow.html
and http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Bac ... ngRow.html
I know you can't exactly do a "supine row" with free weights like you can with pulleys, for for conistency's sake I think it would be good to use the term 'prone' if only to keep it in people's vocabulary and help us with collectively categorizing "prone rows" versus "supine rows".
Prone and supine are terms that also have a broader context than "lying" as well. A bent-over barbell row, for example, is a prone row you do without lying down, while an inverted row (australian pull up) is a supine row you do without lying down.
"lying" > "side lying" : http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Inf ... ation.html
and http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Del ... Raise.html
In this case I might even add "horizantal lying" because you can lie on an incline bench to do lateral raises too. Actually yeah, specifying the angle of bench in pretty much any 'lying' exercise should be done because horizantal isn't necessarily going to be implied.
