re: OTC Testosterone boosters - Dixie Normus

re: Why are Mr. Olympia Body Builders so respected? - Dixie Normus
That doesn’t say anything about diet. Could play a significant factor. I’m not doubting the study. Increased test levels = more muscle capability. However, without knowing diet, that would be a very easy study to manipulate....

re: Do you believe your spouse is obligated to stay beautiful for you? - Dixie Normus
I’m of the opinion that people should stay fit for themselves. If that’s not enough motivation, then a SO should provide that motivation at a bare minimum....

re: Anyone watch the Larry Nassar/USA Gymnastics documentary on HBO yet? - Dixie Normus
There’s this weird concrete belief in America that all doctors are incredibly noble people and above something like that and it flies in the face of common sense and reason. This isn’t to say doctors don’t do incredible things-they do. The problem is people act like there isn’t a portion of the ...

re: Daily Strength Check-In - Dixie Normus
Brave man :lol: I’ll roll with what DeafJam did. I’m 5’10” and weighed 166.7 this morning. Probably around 12% BF. I don’t have chicken legs or anything, but I definitely carry more weight in my upper body. ETA: Workout this morning: Back/bicep hypertrophy, with strength DLs to start out. ...

re: Pre-workout recommendations - Dixie Normus
I wouldn’t recommend anything with proprietary blends. What you just leaked doesn’t contain dosings on each individual ingredient, and from the weight of the three blends all of the ingredients are likely woefully underdosed....

re: Mental block on pre-set number of reps - Dixie Normus
I had never really thought of how I broke through the mindset, but now that you’ve typed it I do the exact same thing :lol: When you just blast through the reps it definitely gets you to do more. Another thing I started to do is gripping the bar as hard as I physically can. For some reason tha...

re: Mental block on pre-set number of reps - Dixie Normus
It’s a pretty natural mental block. Just focus on blasting away until you can’t and forget about the numbers. Tough to do, but you’ll figure out how to block it out with practice....

re: Daily Strength Check-In - Dixie Normus
Yesterday’s workout: Flat Bench: 2x5, 1x6 @ 275 (pretty happy with this one) Trap Bar DL: 1x8 @320 I’ve been doing more trap bar DL because it’s just way easier on my upper back for some reason. I have really short arms so I think my upper back takes a beating more so on BB than trap bar, but...

re: Pre-workout recommendations - Dixie Normus
Pre-jym is about as solid all around as they come because of the aminos + creatine, it's just expensive. It really just depends on what you like in a pre. If you're a stim junkie, AREZ "God of the Gym" (not sure if they make it anymore) is fricking ridiculous. I've been using the Bucked Up "Lit AF...

re: Sore knees after leg day... - Dixie Normus
I do IF every now and then for a month or so when I’m trying to shed some bad weight. I don’t see a problem with doing 3 when you break your fast and 3 at the end of it. As long as you’re getting the 8-10g (my caps are 1.5g each) in, it’s fine imo. Experiment around with it and just see what work...

re: Sore knees after leg day... - Dixie Normus
Fish oil helps a ton with inflammation. I take 3 in the morning and 3 before bed and my tendinitis has really subsided and I lift heavy 3x a week. The morning/night timing is probably not this board’s recommendation (I think the guys on here take a pill every few hours), but it works for me. Mig...

re: Best workout supplements? - Dixie Normus
I guess this is a good place for a product review. Just tried a new preworkout called "LIT AF" made by the people that do Bucked Up I think. Stupid name, but it's one of the better pre's I've had. It's a nootropic, which I used to think was BS marketing, but it really works. Workouts are super...
