"The annual cost of being overweight is $524 for women and $432 for men; annual costs for being obese are even higher: $4,879 for women and $2,646 for men."

- Recent workout Equipment Purchases:
- Champion Revolving Multi-Exercise Bar (I'll be using this for cable rows, cable bent over triceps, and cable tricep push downs.)
- Harbinger 29000 16-Inch Olympic Bar Pad (For Squats)
- Valeo 4-Inch VLP Performance Low Profile Belt (X-Large) (Squats mostly, barbell hack squats as well)
- Powerlifting Wrist Wraps by terriFI
- Harbinger Power StretchBack Glove (Black, Large) (None of my weights have the rubber coating)
- Body Champ Olympic Weight Bench with Leg Developer, Gray/Silver (Squat racks cost way too much and my basement ceilings are short, I also wanted something I could use for benchpress (free weights or dumbbells) and hams. This should do for now. The split unit will allow me to pull the bench out so I can get the bar for squats. I'll probably build some spotter catchers or a mini-squat rack.)
- Music I'm listening to:
