Christmas Gifts

What is everyone asking/hoping to get for Christmas that is fitness related?

I think I want the Iron Woody fractional plates here: http://www.ironwoodyfitness.com/fractionals.php (wfs) since I am doing a strength program, but I am not sure. Some loved them but others said that they stopped using them once they ditched the strength program they were on (I searched but didn't find much). For those that have these, did you get the standard size (1inch) or olympic (2inch)?

It would also be sweet to get a barbell and bumper plates, but I have no idea where I'll be living and working after I graduate, so that's on the sideburner for now.

I have already sent my husband a link to order a stand alone pull up bar with the words "Hint Hint" on it!

Cool thanks, I'll get them then. Making 5lb jumps on power cleans is not happening anymore.

Re: Christmas Gifts

What? My box has all the equipment I need. I'm asking for work clothes that actually fit! I've gone from an XL to a M shirt, and from a 40 waist to a 34. My current clothes make me look like a clown!


Okay, and maybe a jump rope...
