Whats up animals, here in SA its difficult to get hold of animal gear, does anyone know who or where i can get gear from? or what its gonna take to make it happen? Is there an animal rep in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, if not why not! I want guys who join the S.A ABC to have access to the right gear when we go to shows and do promos....any help is good.

Durban, its not so bad, the drive down might be a bitch, but can always fly pretty cheap on one time! Once the East London chapter is running well, I'll let you know about some events and maybe see if you can't make it down and we'll put you up with another animal for a few days.

Howzit bra, I am out here in W.Cape. I don't think Animal has any reps in SA, I usually have to get T's and shit via the net. You should check with D-bomb if he knows of any.

Well I get it here from ''the shop'' and have it FEDEX to here, with the exchange rate as it is, it's cheaper than get'n it from England.

Well no they don't, but try and hook-up with a fellow animal in the US and kinda get him to be ''middle man''

SA animals in da house!
nice one Hulk, good to see another bredren in the FORVM.
Bro, if u wanna get animal gear, hit up the shop with ur order, then in the additional info box, mention that u need international shipping & give the address u want the stuff shipped to...the shop should contact u back with a price on the shipping with USPS...
i ordered the new animal hockey jersey thru this process & im pleased to say i got my order fine from USPS/ sa post office.....but it was pricy, ended up paying like R950 for it, but shit, id have paid my left nut for it...haha...did i mention i got an animal jersey?...haha...haha.....
other than that, if ur in need of supps hit up BB.com, they ship internationaly via fedex, & even with the extortionate shipping fees it still works out cheaper than dischem or whatever....i bought test when it came out last year, had it a full 2 months before it was available in dischem & alot cheaper, when i say ALOT, i mean shit loads, it was like R950+ in dischem when it came out, & i paid R500 thru BB.com....even pak these days is like R450 in the shops & my last order cost me R320.....

man....we should like organise a ABC south africa where we all meet up in the karoo, lift in 50 degree weather in summer & then eat some fresh slaughtered karoo lamb on a spit....oooooh yeahh.....

viva RSA animals!

Mmmm braai, I think I remember what that is. Been storm'n so long and hard out here that I've started to sniff the Blitz just to keep the memories of a braai alive.
At least I'm saving petrol cause I have to swim to gym ( every damn roads flooded)


On a side note- Think maybe you should start a thread in ''The Life'' section to put this in.

damn bru,. wish i could get 2 tha EC for a session, alas a 1000km drive is a bit far neh?

about the online orders, i wait 5-7 days for fedex(if u take the international premium shipping option, id reccommend this as i dont trust SA post for shit), for door to door delivery, yup, thats right, they deliver to wherever u are, even work....5-7 days max...
if u order thru the animal shop, theyll take 6-8 weeks & deliver to ur local post office branch...

like osiris said, maybe u should start a journey or somethin, would be a good one to follow....

Shot bro, BB.com ships internationally, so thats spot on, will def go for the premium shipping option :)

Next year im going to organise people to come to the EC for the SA champs, animals down here will provide digs for animals from a far. Then hitting the Muscle evo GP next year also.

Maybe we could get started by seeing who's interesting in buying some Ts--sizes, quantities, etc.?

I've got 12 guys all ready down here in the EC of SA already, ive got T-shirt sizes and colours ready to order - was going to go through BB.com as they ship internationally. All want Iconic T's at the moment. Not all of my guys are members of the forvm as internet access is expensive, and these animals need cash for meat, and supps!

Thanx for the help U-rep

Ok Guys, I'm hoping for the *9th of August* for our first ABC meet here in the Eastern Cape of the sunny RSA.
We'll be meeting in the Carpark of the Body Classique Gym in the Quigney (beach front gym), for team photos - 09:00 sharp.
Then back to my place for a proper big Braai!
For those of you who can not attend - fear not, other meetings are on their way in more central areas.

Where in South Africa are you located? We could just break up SA into different regions.

SA-Hulk
07-24-08, 3:46 am
I would reccomend breaking South Africa up into Major Cities at first then maybe provicial divides as the ABCs gets bigger over here.
Start with maybe:
- East London - where i am
- Jozi - violators patch
- Cape town - osiris
- Durban
I know we have guys in each of these cities who can head up an ABC - even D-Bomb is over here somewhere, not sure where tho bro?
Its not many, but its a start?

Thoughts Animals?

yeah....sounds like a good idea, but theres not so many of us on the forvm yet...jozi consists of only me & D-Bomb...this forvm rocks!, i wouldnt have found an inspiring guy like him to work out with.....

SA-Hulk
07-25-08, 6:36 am

That is true, and net access is expensive and slow over here. That said you don't HAVE to be a member of the forvm to be an ANIMAL!
Try this out....
Organise your first ABC meet, get interest from your gym, find the animals get them up for it, get them shirts, and set a date.
Then after the meet, go back to an Animals place for food - make sure he has the net - and anyone who isn't a forvm member can sign up there and then!
Animals working together!

Gentleman,
I will expect to see all RSA EC animals at both the Mr. Border show and the NAC the following week.
Border is the 24th Aug, and the NAC is the 30th
- we have competitors in both, one of which i am training, another trains at my gym.
Both will be looking good.

Marius Dohne will also be guest posing at the NAC, he's looking pretty sharp and will be worth seeing.

See you there - Yellow Iconic T's a MUST - we want to be seen

Peace

08-15-08, 4:07 am
Yo Gentlemen,

I just want to let everyone know i have not given up the fight to start the first RSA ABC meeting, i am just waiting on arrival of the care package Natural Guy sent a few weeks back. Being Africa this package is taking its sweet ass time to arrive!

On a side note - I'm looking for reccomendations for places to host the National RSA ABC meeting next year some time....suggestions welcome, we need a gym and accomodation.

I thought holding it down here in East London may work if we do it for the SA champs meet?

Ok guys, i've asked D-Bomb to head up the Jozi meet.
Anyone who is in jozi post up on the thread here and let us know where you are, and when you're available.

The meet doesn't need to be big - as many peeps as possible - invite anyone who you feel has animal in their blood, they don't have to be forvm members - we can sign them up to the forvm after the training part of the meet.

I will organise you guys a care package from corporate asap.

D-Bomb - hook me up with an address i can send your package to.

Animal t-shirts are a must (if you dont have dont panic). We need a team photo, and pics of the event. After the training session, head to somewhere for some eats. make a day of it, or get a lekker braai going.

Get it started gents, its a new revolution.

Peace

So the weekend of the NAC (National Athletics Commission) bodybuilding show has just past, and with only 3 weeks prep my man Rudi took 2nd place.
In all honesty i think he was robbed of 1st - he had it all dialled in, but i fear politics cost us the top spot.
I'll be working with Rudi again next year and KNOW we'll be rocking the stage with trophy wins all over.

yo, Sorry this has taken a total backseat in my life...but i got some good free time so i will look into it, i do know Violator goes to a more "private" and not so "globalized" gym which may allow a fee to be paid to get entry.

i think the main things we need or will be able to do to make this a proper ABC is to all have Animal shirts, i am not sure on whether Universal is able to send a package for that but id have to talk to that dude who got it set up in the Eastern side if i remember right if he got the things he ordered etc...

i would also like to get official participants who can hit it up around the Joburg side...

lets co-ordinate this shit and get it done brother, we both gotta get the plans DONE...haha...

- we need solid animals (true to the life, helpful and hard working...)
- a time that suits everyone and allows for a lot of free space (not rush hour...)
- somewhere where we can whip a camera out
- yeah...and then somewhere to eat some grub...

which will lead to a successful ABC!

welcome.

Nice dude, i would also enjoy seeing one, just got to get enough people to gather in one gym and find a gym which wont mind some photos and reduced fees in case of membership clashing.

i think there was an attempt unless im mistaken it never happened?

since most cats in SA have either vigin or planetfuckedupness memberships, i have managed to find an independant gym that charges a day fee...so we can all get in on the action regardless....i think its around R35 for a session...but its by Northgate off Malibongwe drive...

Just a question/suggestion: Seeing we are only going to be a small group. Could we organize that we do the same muscle groups, else we end up getting there and everyone is in their own corner doing their own thing.

I gym solo, but hitting weights with a group of people is something Iím looking forward to.

Jozi ABC;

Date: saturday 14th august
time: 10h30
location: Just physical gym, Northriding square (see map & co-ords above)
we'll figure out where to eat afterward, theres a heap of choices in the centre and another 2 shopping centres close by (northgate & bellairs centre)

any other brothers or sisters that read this & would like to attend, you are more than welcome...

Our boy C.Coronato aka Treetrunklegs aka one cool dude... has hooked us all up with a FREE ANIMAL ICONIC T-SHIRT (THE YELLOW ONE) EACH, ill give em to you guys tommorow at the event. however, they must think were monsters out here in south africa, cause they sent us XXXL sizes...haha...

in the care package, there was also a banner for us to display & 1x new universal bumper sticker & a sample of ANIMAL CUTS.. so since theres only 1 of them, i think it would be fitting to award it as a prize to the ANIMAL that shows the most intensity tommorrow, we'll all vote on that...so bring your A game mofos....

the countdown begins.... be there or be hunted down like a bitch...haha

08-16-10, 4:58 am
alright guys...South African ABC in Joburg was killer, 4 animals and im sure it will grow. The pictures are coming i have not been NEAR a pc since the event held at Just Physical Gym. About to go to College but will start updating soon...

Unfortunately my phone charger has been a bit fucked up and my phone did not charge the previous night before the event, so my pictures of the abc fell short half way through the event, Luckily Grue (am i right?) had a phone with him and we got some more good shots in.

We just gotta get some email addresses and ill set up a photobucket account or something as such.

A HUGE thank you to TTL and all those involved who got the care package to us in record time. That is service. The shirts are awesome and we all proudly wore them as we tore us a new one with Some Back training...the kind of Back training where i have not been able to Move without my whole back tensing up. My Rhomboids are screaming and it later has spread to my shoulders,lats and traps...kick ass session at about 2 hours and pushing.

I look forward to meeting up again in the future with these dudes and perhaps some new blood to do some damage.
Mikey is a character and always had a joke an kept the group all smiling no matter how painful the exercises were, Violator Busted through a messed up knee to deadlift some good numbers, Grue picked it up a level and kept with it strong, immediate camaraderie and its all for the Animal Spirit.
After there was a dire need for some sustenance, luckily the Dros is in the same center, we all had 300 grams of either rump, fillet, sirloin with a big glass of water to wash it down. good clean eating, good clean muscle building. Talked shop an shit for quite a good amount of time and then parted ways.

I personally hope to get my wrist 100% and pull through stronger.

Here's to more chapters in Joburg and the rest of South Africa!

Grue
08-16-10, 8:31 am
From my side, I also like to say thank you to the people who sent us the package. Really appreciate it. Finally, I also got an Animal shirt to wear.

I must say that this ABC was awesome. I learned allot, and got new goals for myself. The 180kg on deadlift, which by next time I hope I can lift lol.

It was moerse fun and hope we can do this again.

Violators moment of the first Jozi ABC: seeing Grue pull has ass off on the deads & scrape the flesh from his shins...i was like, "quick, get a photo!".. & the guy training his 12" guns on the preacher rack behind us was looking at us like we were mad...haha

(this also won Grue the intensity award for the session, which was a universal bumper sticker, the new stacking 101 guide & a sample of ANIMAL cuts...well deserved Grue!)

& i think that set the tone...the gym we held the event in, "Just physical" was a little different from the traditional health clubs we are all bound to on our regular grinds, because of our medical insurances...
this gym was owned by 4x SA champ Chris Forget, and it was good to have him come up and greet us when the deadlifting started getting heavy & heads started turning...
All of us clad in yellow iconic Ts, with the animalpak.com banner hanging from the squat rack, had people wondering what was going down...i cant wait till theres a legion of 10+ ANIMALS tearing it up in yellow....that will be quite a sight..!!

40 odd sets later, some solid lifts & some good laughs...A great bunch of ANIMALS & some good conversation over some quality south african steaks afterward... im looking forward to the next one guys...will keep ya'll posted!

Many thanks to universal & C.Coronato for the cool gear, the event wouldnt have been the same without it!

25 Sept sounds good to me. Im def there!

Well I did kinda found a gym.

It looks like a kewl place. Has chains and tires and all those powerlifter stuff, but its like a 100 and something rand a day. Also haven't been there myself, so I have no idea how the atmosphere is there. I'll say lets stick to the one we where last time, as its small and has a nice atmosphere.

nice goal to set for yourself!, good stuff grue, better do it rocking an ANIMAL T!
have you read about westside for skinny bastards3 ? download the Pdf below...

http://www.yale.edu/gradrugby/WS4SB.pdf

with all the barrel rolling, climbing & rope pulling they talk about in urbanmarathon, i think this system might be a perfect fir for it...

too bad u dont have a prowler... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ieOBgyq88E

that beauty would be the best tool 4 u to help with conditioning...
as it so happens, ive built myself one and am keen to get a conditioning club going...
if you feel like a drive 2 jozi, we can do a workout on a sunday afternoon...IT WILL BE BRUTAL! but will prep u nicely for the marathon...

Good day brothers

I am in Pretoria, South Africa.

Used to do good pumping and 120km cycle rides - then gave over to alcohol when I started a rock band.
Needless to say I never had the "power" to go to gym any more or even to get on the bicycle.

It is now 15 years and 85kg later. I started about 4 weeks ago- gr8 improvement in power, stamina, overall energy etc!

Good to feel the warm blood FLOW through my veins again!

Nothing beats a good set!


Looking forward to my journey with you!

Hey my Jozi Animals! Compliments of the Season to all. Well, I'm down in little 'ol Port Elizabeth. Went back to gym last week after taking Dec off. OUCH!!! Goal is 105kg of quality by end March. So far so good, with my mom's cooking (LOL)!!! Why so quiet??? Jozi ABC should be rolling! Going to try get a chapter going here as soon as I'm fully back into the swing of things. Quite a few posers and prancers here. Need to see "The Way of the Animal".
Keep in touch dudes! Push heavy, eat clean, get BIG!!!

I'm only in my fourth month now- been using Animal all the way- starting to grow a tail.

Awesome products.

I lost about 30kg of bodyfat and gained 16kg of lean mass.

Not bad for someone who last trained 15 years ago :-)

Hi guys,

I'm a lifter from Klerksdorp in the North-West, and I'm so glad I came across this blog!!
I'm looking for Animal gear like shirts and T's, where can I buy them from?

Hit me up for meets for the S.A-ABC!!! I want to start competing next year but if my 1st meet can be a ABC event that would be awesome!!!

Regards
Nick
