Holiday Gift Ideas for that Special Meat Head in Your Life

It’s that time of year, when your crazy Aunt Wendy asks for your Christmas List, your wife or husband complain that you’re too hard to shop for, and all the online deals are hard to resist, and you end up buying more for yourself than anyone else.

To save you, your significant other, friends and weird relatives the hassle, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite weightlifter gadgets, gear and books for the holiday season. I’ve either used, borrowed, bought, worn out, read, or personally loved all of the below. Enjoy!
