It's funny, whenever I get around the holidays I usually end up buying stuff for myself. Yes, I get everyone their stuff as well. I guess I just get in a spending mood. I recently purchased plate holder attachments for my power cage and squat shoes. Even thinking about getting an ab wheel.

Who wants to or is getting what?

I started early. On Saturday I went to Lowes and got a wheel barrow and some hardware. I took the wheel barrow top and made a dragging sled out of it, a 2x4, some u-bolts, and some rope. All in all it cost me about 30 bucks.

I also got some lumber and made a box for squating. My girlfriend is getting her PT certification. I also got some mini-bands and some new lifting straps (I had surgery on my right hand twice this past year so my grip is still weak).

Got the Wei-Riu Warriors. They were one of the cheaper lifting shoes that came in my size. Figured I would not be putting a crazy amount of work in them anyway, so I'll give them a shot.

I'm asking Santa for a 4-ply poly Overkill suit to play with..... As much as I like my canvas I'd like to try a heavy poly suit.

It'll be after the recovery from Christmas shopping LOL!, but we'll finally be getting a quality squat bar. The one we have is a budget priced 'Brand X' (being kind to the company here). It was warped right out of the box! It has got us by training for about 2 years but it's time to get a Texas, Mastedon or other quality bar. Still shopping around. Best deal I can find for the best bar (new or used). Leaning towards the Texas Bar. Next gift occasion I have a REAL deadlift bar on my wish list!

I bought myself some elbow sleeves, knee wraps, and mini bands.

May pick up a couple of things for the garage gym as well (stone mold, etc.).

I got a new 3-ply Katana to break in while I wait for my 3-ply Overkill gets taken in and a new 1-ply Katana just in case I decide to try a single ply comp. I guess you could also count my multi-ply Overkill briefs. I ordered them a few months ago, but they did arrive in December.

My old land lord sells stone molds and other strongman stuff. Slaters. I used to go in and pay my rent and see logs, axel wheels, etc.

I just expanded my gym (Eaton Barbell) from 1,400 sq ft to over 4,000 sq ft. Added 14 ft Rogue wall mount power rack, Turf style carpet, Plyo boxes, Strongman Equipment, etc. I guess that is considered my Christmas gift to myself. Every time I walk in to the gym, I still cant believe my dream has came true!!!! Here are a few pics.

I want to get a prowler, but need to see if my gym is willing to free up some space for using it.

Got myself a Foam Roller. Been using it every evening. Works a treat.

Also got a food processor, so I can make myself some manlier shakes, haha.

12" pitbull log, pitbull yoke, some more bumpers (so in total 2-25kg(55lbs), 2-45lbs, 2-20kg(44lbs) and 2-25lbs bumpers), spartan stone sleeves, and some stall mats. Getting a piece made for the yoke to double as a squat stand/press stand, then I just need a good bar and a bench and I can do quite a bit of my "gym" training in the garage.

Well, this may not be powerlifting gear per-say, but I've always needed a way to better record my training movements.

I already have a Flipcam, but I have no easy way of mounting it or recording from angles I need to. I received a solution to that problem.


Enter the Gorillapod.

I can basically wrap the legs around a power rack and use various gym apparatuses as a mount for my camera.

Even though this is waaay past Xmas...i feel i'd add to the on going list of a GoPro hero 2 and a sling shot. Perhaps some Rehbands too.

I would like that camera you posted, a sling shot, and another set of bands. Squat shoes would be nice, but a little out of my price range at the moment.

Cards, if you have an old pair of dress shoes, they will suffice.

I sold off a bunch of stuff and bought a much better flat to incline bench and a pair of crepinsek hooks. I can't wait until they get here. Next is an 84 lb weight vest and maybe a 1000 lb trap bar.

I never though about this, i'll definitley have to give it a shot.

Thank you!
