Tip & How-To about Exercise & Fitness


Hi, for those of you who are, like me, the kind of person who doesn't like to depend on apparatus and dumbells and all of that, there are some good news!

You may have heard about calisthenics, where we can do exercise with our own bodyweight! So, here are some suggestions for you :)

1.- Install a bar in your house (It's pretty easy if you have a power drill so the bar gets fixed).
2.- In the bar you can do pull ups. The basic pull ups are with your hands separated at shoulders distance, and for biceps, the palm of your hand is facing towards you; for concentrating the effort at the back, the palm is facing forward (opposite to you).
3.- For exercising the chest, you can do push ups. Different positioning of the hand can work for triceps too.
4.- For exercising the legs, you can do squats.
5.- For abs, you can do it on the floor.

So, you don't need to pay for a gym after all, all you need is consistency and determination! :D

is motorola a100 or a90 bettr to buy

The A100 has some features that the A90 doesn't, but it costs more. It depends on whether those features are worth the extra price. I'd personally be happy with either one.

The tripod legs on my manfrotto 3433 slip. the clamping apparatus doesn't have enough grip and just the weight of my video camera is enough to make the legs start sliding down. I see an allen socket on the inside of the clamping apparatus...is that where to begin?

Hi toolroom347,

There are different clips on the tripod which allow you to adjust the settings for a firmer grip, you also need to extent the gap between the legs of the tripod for a firmer grip, this will help you to set the optimal settings for your tripod which will be fair enough to carry the weight of your camera.

Also a simple solution to stop this slip problem is to carry a small piece of cloth which has guide good grip or a rubber material and then place your camera on it , this will work excellent for a firmer grip.
This has definitely worked for me.

Hope this helps you as well...:)

on dsi my r4 card comes up with an error

Hi Cagg,

This problem is likely because the latest Nintendo based firmware doesn't actually support old R4 and fake R4i cards, only very specific R4i cards support it (namely the official R4i 3DS). You can probably swap your R4 card for a newer card like the Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTWO, Cyclo DS iEvolution, or frankly any of a number of cards that will work on the new DSi XL and 3DS consoles. I would personally recommend the Supercard DSTWO, though, I use it myself. It also has GBA emulation built-in which is kind of awesome if you want to play older games. The Acekard 2i is cheaper, but doesn't have the GBA functionality.

I'm not sure where you're based but if you're in the US, use "dsmagazine" as a voucher (I found this on an online DS news site) for DSCardWorld.com, they're authorised retailers of the Acekard and Supercard - I think also a few others. NDS-gear.com is probably better if you live in the Europe or in the UK though since they have cheaper shipping there. They still stock authentic cards so you should be all right either way.

Good luck, and please kindly upvote my answer if you've found it useful! :-)
