    I got mostly Clothes and Gift Certificates but I also got a nice wad of cash which will be burnt at Iron Mind. I will be buying the COC #3 and probably some other toys from them.

    I received no money this year, but that's ok. Oddly enough I got shit for the kitchen mostly (cast iron skillet, dutch oven, ice cream maker). of more relevance to the forum, I received "strength training anatomy" by Frederic Delavier. It's kind of a fun book in that the pictures show what muscles are used in each exercise. The illustrations are all of typical men's health type guys, until you look at deadlifts and suddenly there's a superheavyweight PLer pulling on a bar. the pictures aren't photos, they're illustrations that show the muscles, you know, like if stripped the skin off somebody fromt he neck down, drained the blood, then colored the muscles being used in any particular exercise red. kinda like that.

    Maybe you win for gifts but I have a way better squat rack than you. HA HA. It has racks to spot you too. I'm telling you, you can get awesome deals from gyms that are going out of business. I spent 150 on a full size power rack, Both sides have spotting arms? and a place to rack the weights. Weight holders and a chin up bar the thing is pretty sweet. But yup, so far you've won.

    I looked at power racks, but i dont have room for one. Plus the one they had at my local fitness store had only a 700 lb limit.

    I've got that book, kind of amusing to leaf through now and then.

    I got a rolling thunder and some cash which will be used to get some books, including mastery of hand strength.

    my power rings are on their way, my lifting hooks got put to use today(holy fuck grip makes a difference), in addition to a nice simple timer(which neatly enough has a magnet, and mounts to my power rack).





    Sambo Fighter those squat racks are awesome, so much adjustment, strong as fuck. I almost got some, but I needed the spotting of a powerrack, and couldnt affoard the pillars of power as well.

    Socks, underwear and a free meal. My girlfriend bought me some of that Under Armour shit for when I go running. It actually works pretty good but it looks fucking gay, I mean it leaves NOTHING to the imagination!!!

    The sudden realization that I might read too many fantasy books hit about the time I pictured you using these power rings to battle evil.

    Frightening...
