A buddy of mine just told me that his girlfriend wasn't sure what to get him and just bought a whole bunch of protein...

She ended up getting him about 30 lbs total!

Hope he likes shakes as much as I do :)

Not much this year in terms of powerlifting gear, but last year I got:

Metal V-type squatter
Mini bands
monster mini bands
light bands
2 captain of crusher grippers (1 and 2)

My sister got me the jay cutler biography DVD which I thought was pretty cool. Even though i'm not into bodybuilding, I respect those guys alot.

i got some elitefts gift cards that total up to 150, i cant decide what i want to get with them, the band pack (which isnt online anymore) or start a chain collection, or just get a whole bunch of little stuff like a belt, chalk, foam roller, dip belt, neck harness, coc gripper, knee wraps (i have tendonitis) or a stone trainer, etc. (problem is all that stuff is cheaper at ATP)

Right now I'm following wendlers 5/3/1 and its working great so I dont know how much I'd use bands or chains but I guess if i get them id throw them in there some way. But chains look sexy. Anyone want to help me pick something?

My wife took the iniative and got me some soccer socks to protect my shins. She thinks, and I can't blame her, I might get a nasty infection from all the blood I keep leaving on the bar(s). The socks are awesome, little bit of padding on the shin and smoot so the bar doesn't catch on the fabric as I pull the bar up.

A pair of Tyler Grip fat bar grip insert from my step-son. He knew I was looking for ways to improve my DL grip. These things are cool. Just slip them over the Bar or DB handle and you have a fat grip apparatus. Tried them some tonight. Really makes the hands and forearms work!

cost wise, i'd skip the chains and stone trainer from elite and go for the bands or the hodge podge of things you listed.

I got a mousepad and the E hat from EFS from my cousin as a secret santa gift. I need to stretch out the large hat. I must have quit the dome.

I would skip the bands and chains for now and get yourself a belt, foam roller, dip belt, knee wraps, and chalk. Get the bands when you stop making gains on 5/3/1. You can get 3/8 inch chain from Home Depot or ask around hardware stores where you can find 5/8 inch chain.

Reko,

I have the same problems with their hats. You would think that an EFS hat would be made for a larger dome but sadly it is not. Perhaps we should start a petition.

I got an early Chistmas present in a Metal King Pro Deadlifter.

the reason they take the band pack off is because with the band sale its cheaper to buy them individually

Strange thing is, I have a flexfit from high school that is a size S/M and that is the largest of the three I have, others being larges. I guess wearing it almost every day for 6 years or so will wear it out haha.

No PLstuff for me, but did get some cash so might pick up a newer/bigger belt.

A pretty lucky crew here overall, I’d say, but here’s a bit of advice from an old hand. (This might cross over with the “marriage and kids” thread going on as well..). Buy what you can for yourself throughout the year. Slip it in under the wife/girlfriends radar whenever you can. Really, do we want them to have any idea how much this s**t costs and how much we spend on it?

I love them dearly but if I waited for Christmas presents from my family, I’d still be lifting in nothing but an Altus belt from Walmart…LOL

Happy Holidays to All,

It's like that old saying about dying, that you're afraid when you die your wife will sell all your stuff for what you told her you paid for it. :)
