  • Did you get any primal christmas gifts?

    Thought it would be interesting to hear if anyone got some primal loot this year ?

    This was what I got:
    2 x ab-wheels: Awesome when the family doesn't talk about who's getting what Given it a roll a few times and I must say it is the first core exercise I actually enjoy doing.

    2 pairs of hand-grippers: Got tired of my grip being the limiting factor in deadlifts! Luckily they were different strengths so I can progress.

    A pair of push-up handles: Seeing a trend yet? It's good to be able to do something useful in my own room on days I don't go to the gym. The increased depth from using these things really targets the chest. Fun.

    A mushroom collecting guide: "Avoid poisonous things" aye aye, still want to eat wild shrooms though!

    Misc: A basket with dark chocolate, infused olive oil, nuts, tea. Yum.

    Did anyone else get anything health/fitness/primal oriented?

        I got a pair of vffs and an outdoor meat smoker. My husband got some 50lb dumbbells that I'll make use of as well. Oh, and my parents are giving me part of a deer that their friend hunted and is giving away. A very primal chrristmas indeed!

          My wife gave me Robb Wolf's Paleo Solution and Art DeVany's book as well. She thinks they were "gag" gifts, but I am pretty excited about reading them.

              I got some all natural bodywash, and a balaclava.

              I just bought myself a doorway pull-up bar yesterday, though. Played around on it all last night and my arms are good-sore.

                  A pair of Vivo Barefoot sneakers, the Primal Blueprint Cookbook, a gift certificate to US Wellness Meats, and a hot chocolate mix made of just cocoa powder and raw honey. Good times.

                        Asked my husband for CalRopes (I think that is what they are called -- weighted ropes) and got them. First time I used them I was surprised at how much my heart was pounding! I thought it would be a great arm workout but it gets the whole system pumping.

                          A couple of amazing Shun knives that DH scored at a warehouse sale, and a gift card for Dick's Sporting Goods so I can go get a new sports bra and probably some additional dumbbells. Oh, and a pound of frozen ground elk meat.

                            was really hoping for a pair of vibrams but the wifey got me two pair of saucony trail running shoes , not primal but much appreciated since I wear them out so fast .
                            oh yea and a kinda primal gift , got another dozen arrows and a few broadheads for the bow.

                              2 date nights (without child) (that's play, right?)

                              and LOTS of unprimal cookies, etc from family and friends. Not sure what to do with it all besides poisoning co-workers.
