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).
A bench shirt. Exact one TBD...

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.
Well i bought myself ace briefs and a katana for my christmas gifts
I usually end up getting myself something training related too.
Probably get one of these http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...e=grenade+ball I think it will be a fun grip thingy.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

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.
Squat and DL suits,wraps and mybe new shoes(WL adidas)
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.

I'm getting Mark Bell's Slingshot
A set of mini bands. IŽll leave the Super Centurion for my b-day.
we forge our bodies in the fire of our will
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.
I have had the farmers, sled and axle for a while, but never a garage, lol
