Every time I walk in to the gym, I still cant believe my dream has came true!!!! Here are a few pics.
    Wow great looking gym. Congrats to you

    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.
