re: How much does the bar weigh on a smith machine? - Dixie Normus on 12/1/20 at 12:21 pm
I’ve always thought it was 45 pounds, but feels lighter because of its mechanics and the way it is leveraged against a slanted spire. I have no idea the real answer and am now curious though.

re: Home gym advice - Dixie Normus on 12/1/20 at 7:37 am
It’s a tight fit, but people have made it work in worse. I’d suggest at least a half rack over a squat stand to add more versatility because versatility is king when it comes to home gyms. Also, make sure you check your ceiling height. The racks and stands are taller than you think....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - Dixie Normus on 11/30/20 at 6:12 pm
The replies in this thread now have me somewhat glad that I’m just buying Carson’s prebuilt with the 3800X and plugging my 1070 in until I can decide what to do on processor/gpu. Let’s me wait to see how intel does on next gen and let the dust settle on the new cards because all I’ve been getting...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Xbox One or X Series WWYB? - Dixie Normus on 11/30/20 at 7:52 am
I would go Series S ($300) or Series X ($500). S doesn’t have the same hardware as Series X, but games will be optimized for it for the foreseeable future. I know Xbox has said they plan to continue support for the One models, but I just can’t see that happening for this entire console generation g...

re: Creatine and BCAA’s - Dixie Normus on 11/30/20 at 7:24 am
Plenty of research online on creatine. Arguably the most researched supplement in the fitness industry and it flat out works if used consistently. The only recommendation you’ll see online is that you should drink plenty of water when using it as a supplement, but we should all be doing that anyway...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Need Advice- best amino acids and best protein products? - Dixie Normus on 11/30/20 at 7:23 am
Whole foods are best for protein, but MyProtein and True Nutrition are best if you need to supplement (as almost anyone with a 9 to 5 does). MyProtein is the cheaper option and True Nutrition is the flat out best quality you can get IMO....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Current Sources for Weight Plates - Dixie Normus on 11/29/20 at 8:22 pm
Echo’s are great. You’ll be happy with them. I have a mix-match of echo’s and HG’s because I just had to get what I could when I could. Definitely prefer the echo’s as the HG’s take up a lot of room on the bar and I’ll probably have to buy a pair or two of iron plates by the middle of next year....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Proper Squat Form - Dixie Normus on 11/29/20 at 5:58 pm
A lot of it results in a similar argument that people have between conventional and sumo deadlift. It’s the same exercise, just emphasizes different muscles based on foot/bar placement. As long as someone is getting parallel, it doesn’t matter IMO. Do what feels right for you body and gets you ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Accuracy of workout trackers? - Dixie Normus on 11/27/20 at 2:15 pm
Yeah, that’s par for the course. By no means do I think they’re bad nor would I encourage someone not to wear one. It’s actually the opposite because I think they at least give the average person a barometer to know that they are putting in some work and give them that satisfaction of “I’ve burned X...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Accuracy of workout trackers? - Dixie Normus on 11/26/20 at 2:57 pm
I’m sure someone smarter than me will find a way, but at the moment they seem to use heart rate as the estimator which is not really a good barometer as people from all sizes have varying heart rates....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: 401K under Biden - Dixie Normus on 11/26/20 at 12:12 pm

re: 401K under Biden - Dixie Normus on 11/25/20 at 6:48 pm
What a cop out post. You specifically said if it’s a 26% credit, then the vast majority will be better off and you’d have to make ~325k to be negatively impacted. That statement simply isn’t true. [quote]it's been floated that the credit will be 26% for every dollar put in. If that's the case, t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
