Chris Duffin's Powerlifting Holiday Wish List
EDITOR'S NOTE: We know how hard it is to gift shop, so we thought we would help you out with ideas. Coach Chris, who coaches and competes in powerilfting, provided us with a wish list that any strength athlete would be happy with.
1. Demon Bells "Hannya" - $119.99
I am a lifter who loves kettlebells who goes by the name Kabuki Warrior. A set of kettlebells shaped in the form of a Kabuki Warrior seems to be just way too coincidental for me to pass up.
2. Genuine Python Skin Lever Belt - $300.00
The cast aluminum lever on my current belt has broken yet again. Want to upgrade to a steel lever, so why not get something uber over the top.
3. Professional Haulin Hook Straps - $65.95
So I never set my straps loose and drop the bar if I compete in Bros vs Pros again.
4. Westside Bandbell (Bamboo) Bar - $289.00
Work your stabilizers to the maximum using this very flexible bar combined with hanging kettlebells from bands while pressing. I’ve always wanted one.
5. Bioforce HRV Monitor - $197.00-279.00
Measure your autonomic nervous system response with a heart rate variability monitor to maximize your training loads and also prevent overtraining. As someone who over trains frequently maybe a little data otherwise will suggest otherwise. Okay, I cheated and got this one already - and it says go crush some weights today!
6. Converse Shoes - $55.00-80.00
7. Superfeet Insoles - $39.95
For said lifting shoes.
8. Massage Therapy Gift Certificates – $100+
Oh yeah, always go with more recuperation!
9. Grass Fed Beef from Tx Bar Organics - $1,350
Well maybe a quarter-cow would be a more reasonable request. Need to fill up the freezer with grass-fed beef again so I can empty it.
10. RKC Kettlebell Set - $41.75-241.95
Yes I already own tons of kettlebells but they are all at my gym. Can never have too many kettleblells so why not a set or two for the home. That way I don’t always need to the gym to do some kettlebell work.
