Have you started shopping yet? Here’s another pair of gifts that are game changers to any fitness-minded person.
1) Starting Strength : Basic Barbell Training 3rd Edition– 9.99 -Kindle Edition- 29.99 (Paperback)
This is the standard that all training books are compared to. Inside you’ll find in depth analysis of the basic barbell exercises, the squat, deadlift, press, bench press, power clean and snatch, as well as various assistance exercises. These movements are described based on kinematics of the human skeleton, relevant anatomy, and biomechanics. In short, this is a no BS book that I still get pearls of every time I read it. If you or someone you know is even half interested in exercise or training, this book is a must-have.
2) Bluetooth Headphones– 79.99 +
Everybody likes to listen to their own jams when training, but sometimes those headphone wires get tangled or caught in various moving body segments. Enter Bluetooth headphones! No need to carry your phone/iPod on you while working out anymore. It can be pretty far away from you while you’re training and still get Bluetooth reception (although how far remains yet to be seen). These things are super handy when squatting and deadlifting where a MP3 player or headphone cords would definitely be in the way. Check these out!
