This foam roller comes in 3 sizes, which one is better?

They have them in Decathlon, they 're intermediate basic level (or begginer 2 I guess?) for running.
Considering how much I punish them with the type of workout I put them through (not exactly running) the durability is acceptable.
Definitely nowhere near top notch but hey I live on a budget

Gloves hurt your grip. A mans hands should have some callouses on them too. No serious lifter should use gloves.

Lifting gloves are kinda Gay, no offense. Callouses are badass, man!

If you don't have access to chalk (or your gym - like mine - doesn't allow it) then gloves are certainly worth looking into. My palms sweat profusely when I lift, and the only way I can hang onto the pullup bar or bust out a set of deadlifts is to use the gloves (although I do use chalk when I travel and have access to gyms that don't mind it).

I'll second the Harbinger recommendation, been using them for years.

This could be viewed as both a pro and a con.

I have this one with the same leather band. I find it a good alternative.

Nice. What model is it, and how did you swap out the band?

It's the Seiko 5 SNK809.

I bought a cheap spring bar tool set along with a strap separately (18mm) on Amazon. Both came out to $20.

I also have canvas straps too. I use the following from time to time:

If you can't use chalk then try this liquid chalk out. Very discrete, once it dries it only really comes off on knurling. I just put it on in the locker room and walk around the gym for a couple mins to dry it out, then ready to rumble.

If the gym doesn't let you use chalk, find a new gym. Liquid chalk feels like you just came all over your hands.

Key wallet. Keeps your keys from scratching your clothes and other things they scrape against, helps prevent losing them, and makes you look much more put together:

Ozark 20oz trail tumbler (or if you want to spend way more for the same product, Yeti). They keep my coffee warm or my cold drink cold all day.

Truly one of my most utilized possessions. I have one at work and one at home.

They have a can model too, great for keeping beer cold.

1. Leather money clip:


Keep your back pocket light and all your stuff together. I used to carry too much extra cards, ids, coupons and stuff. I bought a fossil money clip similar to this one for around 35USD. Fits much better in my jeans and is comfortable to use.

2. Decent lifting shoes:


Wearing your every day air max kicks is making your lifts weak and unstable. I bought my reebok lifter´s on the reebok website, for about 60-70 USD. They make a huge difference in terms of PRs and posture.

3. a decent external battery:

Since I´m moving all day between classes, lunch place and around campus, I don´t have time to plug my cellphone to a wall for half an hour. I can just turn on my battery and get going. It costs 15-40 USD and it can charge you phone, tablet (my father has one that can kickstart your car).

4. decent pair of headphones:

i used to have a qc25 bose until i got mugged. i decided to buy jbl. they are not noise cancelling but sound pretty good and theyre wireless.

Pressure cooker (cooks stuff fast as shit).
Foam roller.
Essentials oils (mix with moisturizers, shampoo etc).
Spotify Premium (perfect for when chicks are over, way more bang-friendly than TV).

This is what i use:

Quote:Instant Pot IP-DUO50 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 5Qt/900W

7-In-1 multi-functional cooker--pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté/browning, yogurt maker, steamer & warmer

https://www.amazon.com/Instant-Pot-Multi...B00FQ6VEKS

And I second anyone who suggests a Leatherman.

Can you recommend a solid pair for under $100?

I'd like to pick up some but most of the ones I see touted around the internet are a few hundred dollars or so.

Well if you can get to $200, these were just released. They are considered the best sound-quality/noise-reduction to price ratio. Won't be shipping out until the end of the month, and as mine haven't arrived, I can't personally vouch yet. But based on my research, they are the ones to get.

To be honest, that is the least you can expect to pay for a set of this kind. Otherwise you are compromising on sound quality or noise reduction. Bose are over-priced, and while they have the best noise-reduction, their sound quality is not as good as Sennheiser.

These arrived yesterday. They are decent quality. Not as good as reviews portrayed. Noise-cancellng earphones will never match audio quality of normal ones. But they are certainly good enough for the price, and cancel noise well.

Anker 15,000 mAh charger
Naturehike Cloud up 2 ( awesome lightweight 2 man tent)

A key wallet is nifty. Any recommendations for a good one?

Razer ferox portable speakers. Carry the party with you, everywhere you go! These are not bluetooth speakers, so your phone battery won't be drained quickly. 50-70$

[Image: hqdefault.jpg]

Ontario Rat 2 knife. 3 inch blade, great steel. EDC for me. 30-40$.

[Image: ontario-rat-2-vs-rat-1.jpg]

Money clip, since I detest bulky wallets. This one holds cash and cards. 3-10$.

[Image: 41bi%2BNdlQNL.jpg]

Card beer opener. Has a novelty factor, but proved handy many times. Fits in the money clip. 10$.

And I second the external battery recommendation. Great thing to have when you're outdoors, but still need your phone. Just steer clear of the cheap ebay shit that has false mAh count. 30$.

I haven't seen that one, but I have been using a Duckbill clip for about 5 years and it's still tight as the day I got it, even after having been stuffed with way too many cards at one point or another.

Agree that you get what you pay for with headphones. Hard to find a good pair for sub $100. But if you can get to $250+ you can pick up some good ones. Once you hear that full sexy sound you will never be able to go back to those shitty ear plugs.

That is the SlimClip. They used to advertise them on TV about 8-10 years ago. I received one for Christmas around the same time frame and I've had it ever since. It easily holds my 7 cards and it retains its ability to hold bills. It doesn't get stretched and fail to bounce back after holding a large wad, lets say a stack of $1's for the strip club. I recommend to everyone.
