    No, a chinup is if you get your chin up over the bar. Grip doesn't matter. Any situation where you pull something up (yourself or a barbell) can be called a pull-up.

    To clarify: it's not distinguishing the grips that is wrong, just the names that've been chosen for them. Overhand/underhand is better since that's how people would describe lat pulldowns or rows or...

    Why's this article say that the middle head's called the medial deltoid? There's a better argument for calling it lateral, because it's origin on the acromion is actually further away from the...

    What you're describing sounds like what's called 'transverse extension' on ExRx. Moving from arms-forward to arms-sides.

    What do you mean by gym myths? These muscle variations exist... I don't think it's comparable at all. Pullovers don't seem to include any of the functions that the serratus performs, so it deserves...

    Dips are a great chest exercise.

    Doing flies is a way to emphasize the chest over the anterior deltoid, but only if done as transverse abduction. This is where the biceps point superior towards...

    Perhaps you have grown more muscle or contractile fibre or something? Carbs do effect endurance but I'm not sure how large of an effect they have on short term explosive strength.
