Anyone have issues with recurring neck pain? - Dixie Normus
I’m not sure if it’s my neck or the top of my back technically, but I keep having this recurring issue where I get a crick-like pain on either side of my spine right below my trap. There’s no specific exercise that triggers it, today it was squats. It’s really getting frustrating because it’s not e...

Instagram is largely responsible for the pickup in fitness related activities nowadays but is more harmful to fitness than it is helpful. It gives people unreal expectations and bogus “plans” to get people fit, when in reality the people are either juicing or doing something totally different than ...

re: Daily Strength Check-In - Dixie Normus
As an experiment I’ve been doing some squats with a 2.5lb plate under my heel and it’s helping me get deeper into my squat. That makes me assume that a heeled shoe would help more in that department. I’m not much of a low bar squatter. I’m somewhere in between mid and high bar....

re: Daily Strength Check-In - Dixie Normus

re: Daily Strength Check-In - Dixie Normus
I’ve always done IIFYM. I’m big believer in just pure calories in, calories out and I’m taking that same approach to keto. I’m 5’10” and probably somewhere between 12-16% be right now. Goal here is to do a body recomp and try to stay the same weight but lose some fat, which is why I’m rolling wit...

If I’m LSU, I’m not taking Rodney’s LOI until Ish’s is in hand. I wrote this dude off a long time ago so I’m not expecting to get him and the last thing I want is to not get him but be stuck with his below average brother soaking up a scholarship. I don’t mind the package deal though. We have ro...
