    That's quite a haul. I also admire that you donate to the animal shelter like that.

    Can't wait to see you test-drive the new equipment. Take videos!

    I know the shelters around our house always ask for towels, blankets and food.
    So we do the same thing and once it starts getting cold here we donate that kind of stuff.
    I dont know about you but one of our favorite person charities is Adopt A Family or Operation Christmas Child. Depends on how much money we have because Adopt A Family you tend to give more for because it isn't just one person(usually).
    I've done Operation Christmas Child a few years ago with the boxes, that one was really fun. Yeah I've heard of the Adopt a Family one, always sounded cool but yes like you said would cost way more if you're trying to cover a few people. I like getting to pick stuff out and making it more personal rather than just sending some money. I want to get something for Toys for Tots, trying to get an address of where the drop offs are out here. Went to the website and it's pretty vague, tells you who's doing it in what county/city but no actual address, I gotta look more into it.
    You also got a ton of equipment and a wicked deal on shipping jeez. Hope you at home gym is looking sharp!
    Yes! Most of it arrived yesterday, got one more box coming tomorrow. I unboxed everything so far - the football bar, curl bar, and DL bar are BEAUTIFUL. Will take pics. Mutt bar is sweet! And I gotta install my gun rack in my basement ASAP.

    Very fun bench day yesterday with some new equipment! The Football Bar is AWESOME! Takes some getting used to, especially reracking it. Really does take the pressure off your shoulders and hammers the chest HARD. Chest was fried by the time I got to inclines. I'll take some vids soon of bp with the football bar. Used my beautiful new EZ Curl Bar from Rogue, mannnn that thing is smooth, I love it! I gotta install my gun rack on the concrete wall and hang up my full size barbells. I have a little stand for the smaller stuff like curl bars to get them off the ground and organized. I have yet to try the new Rogue Deadlift Bar and Mutt Bar, maybe today on the Mutt Bar since I'm doing back/bi. Got some Rogue change plates and a couple t-shirts to get the $5 shipping deal. And the football bar needs specialty clamps to hold the plates (I have clamps that kinda lock down so I thought I'd try that first). Ordered the specialty clamps yesterday and another tee I had been eyeing so happy Rogue Xmas to me. Next year will upgrade to the Rogue 45 plates so I'm working with all Rogue stuff, had to stop myself this year because it was getting a little out of control with the Rogue purchases already lol. But so far everything I've tried out from them is excellent 10/10 totally worth it!

    Pics of Rogue gear...

    Football Bar, Curl Bar, Mutt Bar


    Mutt Bar, can do pretty much any exercise with this with a neutral grip, 44lb


    Football Bar in my rack, fits perfectly



    Friday was my 7th day in a row at work so I managed to get Sat/Sun off. Hitting the weights this morning and will go to the park and run later since it'll be 50 degrees out today. Trying to get the house in order too since I don't know when I'll get another day off work - laundry, meal prep, dishes, hung up the Xmas lights, bills, couple errands.

    Work has been extremely busy - record breaking season, I'm a F-E-D-E-X contractor. We started operating 7 days a week in November so I've got a lot of drivers on different shifts, like Sun-Wed, Tues-Sat, got 15 guys on my crew now so we can cover all of it. It's been tricky to get it to flow and a lot of changes for everyone. I don't like not even having one day where even if I'm personally off I have to worry about my guys and trucks out there possibly getting into an accident, or someone getting injured, or a truck breaking down and having to get towed on a Sunday when the mechanic isn't even open.

    Anyway F-E-D-E-X used to do a bunch of cool stuff for the drivers during Xmas, like really REALLY good food a couple times a week where they'd bring people in to cook breakfast or have really awesome boxed lunches which huge ass sandwiches for everyone, now they don't really do anything which sucks. So I'm doing my own Ham Day for my guys, srs. Ordered a giant platter of ham, turkey, bbq sandwiches from HoneyBaked Ham, and I got chips/pop/gatorade and will pick up a plate of Xmas cookies from the bakery so they can have a feast on Tuesday. Got some take-out containers too so people can take a bunch of food with them as well, we often don't have a lot of time to stop when it's this busy. And bringing my toaster oven in so people can toast their sammiches if they want lol. So hell yeah, let it be HAM DAY!

    You are a very generous hammy to do all that.

    Also, mirin gym swag porn! I love the neutral grip bars. I can see the benefits to those because of shoulder health and because frankly it seems like a much more natural position--not something I considered as much before training BJJ, but I rarely try to pull or push anything with my palms facing straight away from me. Usually it's gripping someone's lapel, so a neutral-type grip. Wrist health too, come to think of it.

    Oh wow your right they do look fantastic! The mat look is very nice, I think if I was to invest in an at home gym I would get those if possible. How long have you been building/upgrading your at home gym?
    Don't let yesterday be today.
