Well, Olympia is done. Now time to focus our collective attention on the Arnold and The Cage. Fellas, what would you like to see Corporate change this year? What did you like best last year and what could use improvement? Speak up.

Yeah The Cage talk begins.

I would say, a bigger section. Its kinda tight in there most of the time. Plus it'll give more space for events and expand the box (I think ya'll should keep the box!)

Awesome LE Stuff!!!

I just happen to check on them to see when they'd be available, and they are soooo freakin' cheap, I just had to jump on it!

Maybe hook up a web cam for live streaming video?

He didn't bring in a grill but he had already had them grilled up. Just slapped them on a bun and ate up. His name is Shaun and his forvm name is "cstmgp". Those burgers were damn good!

I already have everything booked for myself and my family really looking forward to it. I will be 8 weeks or so out of a show so "i will be in the fucking zone but I wouldnt miss it for the world. looking forward to the ABC..

As for changes... did a black out, a sea of yellow how about a white out. everything else was cool last year maybe alittle more space if it is at all possible the little area that was roped off was cool with the supps and microwave but it took up alot of space for the average guy to come in and check it out, really not anyones fault but the expo has grown so much it is very cramped. but one plus would be dont sell out of everything the first day haha

InkdMuscle
09-29-09, 4:03 pm
honestly a bigger spot. the cage was cool but because ANIMAL was limited with the size the "box" was small. and when the big events were going on with the bro's vs. pro's it was cramped and everyone trying to snap pics was hard. So i would go with a bigger area if at all possible. and please keep the usage of intra-aid and eaa stack and all those goodies avail to the vip animals like the last year.

also bring a lot more gear. luckily i was there the first day of the expo. but 90% of the gear got sold out the first day. so a lot of animals missed out on sat. other then that im going again this year.

Haha Freak, I was helping out working The Box and I saw you working on naturalguy and Big Byrd. Damn if you got a table set up Id be first in line, with a pocket full of 50's!!!! lol

Yep, yellow s been done, blacks been done, now its time for a slayer type theme "reign in blood" all red, LE red hats, zip up hoodies shirts, u can really push the new cuts formula there. Just a few ideas, i will post up tonnes more in the next little while.

flyin back today from Vegas, and the ABC was a blast, just athought, how about doing 2 ABCs?, or settin up a tonne of free weight in a small cage section and having animals who are goin to be there register ahead of time, and actually train right on the spot, with an animal or universal pro or rep, right there on the spot?

I have said it a hundred times. The Arnold is my personal superbowl. It is more important than the world championships, think about that. For those that read POWERLIFTING USA this months issue page 38 has my story. My mom died suddenly a few weeks ago and before she did, we talked about the worlds and the Cage. I told her I was going to win worlds again, take my world record back,then take that momentum to the Cage and put on a show NEVER SEEN. With mom as my angel nothing has changed guys! I will have logs and vids to detail my trek. This is as real as it gets. See you in the Cage. IT IS AN, HONOR TO BE A PRO ATHLETE REPRESENTING MY TRUE LIFESTYLE.ARE YOU READY? I CANNOT HEAR YOU?!!

I'm with Shaffer on the White out... Make everything LE white and do it big! Nah FUCK big lets do it Animal and do it HUGE!

We could theme something off red too... Hell we treat the FORVM as a family and last time I checked we all bleed red. Something along those lines if we don't go with the white out.


I like the LE lids and all the gear.... please bring a lot!

The box was cool. It was great to have all the supps there and handy for FORVM members.

Pros vs. Joes need to be there again.

I like where the Iron Animal is going, and think we should push that hard.

Since you guys did Dog Tags at The O is there anyway we could get something customizable on the spot similar to this at The Cage.

09-29-09, 10:50 pm
I'd say the only thing would be a bigger box, as the forvm grows, the box does too lol.

But for real, Im taking the Friday before off for sure this year. No more of this Saturday afternoon, Sunday all day bullshit.

ABCs everything, not missing a moment this year. Hell, I'd practically camp in the cage if I was allowed, overnight style.

This will be my 5th Arnold and 5th trip to the Cage. It just keeps getting better. Every year.

I'm digging the Whiteout idea... White shirt.. with an oversized A across the back, and the various slogans across the chest.

Definately keep the Box, and if possible make it a bit bigger. The supps, water, and microwave were a BIG help last year. Especially on Saturday when the expo was sooo packed. Pros and Joes was a big hit, and should definately be continued. Also, the Workout with a Pro was a great idea and should definately be expanded if possible.

I also agree that there needs to be more supps and more gear available. Lots of guys complaining about things being sold out. You know this stuff is going to go... so, why miss the chance to sell twice as much? Just an idea but if space is an issue for storage, how about using all the lockers to store extra stuff? Stuff the full, and slide one of those bars throught the locks and a padlock on the end. Might free up some space in the back to allow the Cage and the Box a little more room.

Also.. keep the volunteer idea from last year. It was cool that members of the Forum got to be personaly involved, and also worked out for cheap labor for Animal.

See everyone there!

09-30-09, 12:40 pm
Yep a few more ideas, i liked seeing the volunteer idea, i think forvm members would kill to help out in the cage, and a bbq would be off the chains.

Just a thought, with the Breach happening, if you dont do a red theme with the re-release of cuts, How about setting up a large booth based on the cellar the guy is working out in in the Breach ads? Have the whole booth setup as if it were that guys basement, and the LE gear could be white n black to accompany it, like the white out ideas everyone is coming up with.

Or, go with a cartoon skit setup on the walls and and new LE gear with all the Breach stuff, and really blast the new promo into the supplement community, along with hats that have the cartoon storyboard on em in black and white, and several new legacy t's with all of the old ads, starting with the cardio sucks ad etc, as i have the adds saved in a scrapbook but on Ts they d be monsterous

Black Out was kick ass last year, but everyone expects black from Animal. Look at the vids and everything else. There is an infinite amount of black. If we go all white it will be so out of the box it will draw even more people to The Cage. It'd be like bugs to a light!

I like both SGT Rocks idea of Red and Gold or Vinny's "back in black". I have one animal shirt that's white that I never wear because it's white and I know I'll get it dirty or ruined one way or another.

In one of my earlier posts, i suggested setting up the weightlifting room/basement from the breach promo inside the cage, why not do a pros vs. bros in the weightroom from the breach?

Yeah they were. I remember becuase I was one of the lucky few chosen to help. I would love to do it again. I got to bounce The Box and loved every second of it. Helped load weight for bench comp too. Man it was too much fun!

If the Crew needs any more hands, Id be more than happy to help, adn Ill be in town seeing as I live in CBus haha.

Hard to believe it is that time of year again already. If I could add only one thing to the weekend it would be a seminar with Bobby and Kat on powerlifting. I was able to workout with Bobby and chat with Kat and they have a ton of knowledge.

By the time I get out there, I'll be 7 weeks or so out from the California, so no Squat till You Drop for me this go around. And if someone does take The Freak on, you better start training now because he is one tough guy to beat. Look forward to seeing everyone.

I would like to see the Pro's .v. Bro's again though. This go around, I would like to see Big C take on HOUSE in a curling contest.

I spoke to the Enforcer today and he wants to take on The Freak at The Cage. Also when we were at the Europa The Freak called out Steve Kuclo for a squat off at The Cage, maybe we can have a triple header???

I'm with all my fellow interns in that working The Cage was an honor! It was definitely an experience of a life time and the energy generated from it provided me with the momentum I needed to start my prep. Hell I was so wrapped up in the experience I stayed and helped pack things up after most had left on Sunday.

It would be a privilege to be an intern again this year, if I'm fortunate enough to be selected and if Corporate decides to go the intern route again. I'm always down to help the best damn company in the biz.

U Rep I'd like to help out this year as an Animal intern. For the past 4 or 5 years I've come to the classic and I always end up hanging around the cage anyway. That's not gonna change, so I figure, why not help out the company that does so much for us.

Bottom line... you want an intern, I'm in. I'll be there all three days and I'm down to help for at least one, maybe two. I've been waiting for this since last year!

im all for a squat off with enforcer or big steve.. but hmm... with all the shit going on in the country, im wondering if we could do a little charity at the same time?u got 3 big animal freaks, hmmm 3 of us do ''X'' amount of reps as a team? maybe do same thing with bench / curls... say the 3 to 5 of us go for 500 reps total...3 or 400 on bar.. and we just keep altermnating out til we get 500 reps..get friends / companies to sponsor us? a penny a rep up to a dollar a rep... u know this would be a true test of blood and guts..
just an idea, but maybe puts a spin on the pros vs. joes.. more of a team effort to help a cause of the ''ANIMAL'' COMP. choice.. it'll get more guys involved and build more comdradery among our animal family...

I love the idea, Freak. It would be a great gesture to show that the bodybuilding community (and Animal in particular) can contribute to a worthwhile cause. Maybe a small step toward showing people that not all bodybuilders are selfish and uncaring.

This is a great idea. And to take it a step further maybe we could challenge all of the ABC's to have a liftoff day where they get donations on how much weight they can lift. Maybe go for max lift days and donate per pound. Or you could have the lifts at the national ABC at the Arnold. If you do it at the local ABC then that would at least give someone the opportunity who could not make it the feeling of taking part in the Arnold.

I really really like this idea. Most of us are live a nice life- were able to consistently eat 6 times a day and have a roof over our head etc. I think this idea would be great. Im sure many many Animals on here could afford a penny a rep. For fucks sake thats 5 dollars! Think of how much money we could raise for an organization in need. Not to mention a combined total of 500 reps with 315 on the bar would be nasty! Just keep rotating like you said....get the puke bucket ready!!!!!

Oh boy, i just had a little idea to build off the charity idea, What if the Cage was a continuation of the compound, with a full military setup, fake guns, tanks, bullet chains, sandbag pits etc.

I think Animal missed the boat a little at the compound, the ltd ed hats were sick, but they coulda used a ltd ed green iconic, and green animal fidel cadet hats like the blackout hats at the cage. The Ts the guys were wearing were killer though!!!

Along with a bigger military theme, Do a pros vs bros or bros vs. bros while lifting military setups like bars loaded with sandbags, dips with chains of shells around guys necks etc., and have guys collect sponsorship for the reps with proceeds going towards supporting the military in the States.

10-04-09, 9:57 pm
I like the color idea Sgt. Rock had, that would be bad ass

I did enjoy the Pros vs. Joes and a possible idea going with The Freak's team approach is have two joes go up against two pros, highest total of weight lifted "wins" for that event. But the charity idea is great, speaks to the true meaning of giving back, which is overlooked by a lot of different comapanies

The Cage was the best stand last yaer by FAR!!!!

I loved it, I like the idea of some screens, maybe showing whats going on inside the cage if possible, the screens would be up high so people could see them as sometimes you just can`t get near the cage (Ok I was lucky as I had a VIP pass and was in the box most of the time) at times as people gather round to watch the events.

I`m pretty sure I won`t be able to make it as we have a wedding to sort out for daughter in Cyprus which will cost a bomb! Have to wait and see.

I`d keep the barrels and the stand the same, its hardcore and says it all.

I agree with the charity idea, thats a great idea.

The pain we torture ourselves with...the love/hate realtionship is ongoing....Every workout we have, we try to force more blood into our bodies with one more struggling rep!

Hope you can make it, if you can, we will grab a workout together and food...what we do all weekend at night! LOL

Saturday is the BUSIEST day of the expo...very very VERY crowded....if you see something you like on Friday...buy it, most likely if you wait until Sunday...it will be sold out!

Best advice is book early... Rates are up there for that weekend, and if something better comes along, you can always cancel... I have the info on the hotel that we booked last year... They gave me the same rate as 2009, maybe it still stands..

And How much a nite, if u dont mind.

$150.00 a night... I have heard of people paying MUCH more for MUCH farther away... They offered the same price upon check out if you booked, so I jumped on it. I just figure if a better opportunity arises, I can cancel..

I'm actually debating on going to the finals...

I'm booking my room NOW as well.

First timer tips:
-Don't drink all the samples you see around or you will spend all your time in the bathroom.
-Wear boots as the mens bathroom ALWAYS floods and its nasty as hell...
-Buy or bring a big bag to carry your food and whatever goodies you get in.
-Get your LE items EARLY or you may not have a chance to get 'em...

The O is great, but the Arnold weekend is the best...Expo is crazy crazy...and The Cage is the hottest spot in town to be...other vendors have gates-lines-booths that you have to WAIT to see your favorite Bodybuilder-Pro...The Cage you can walk right in and talk shop with them, have pics taken with them, grab an autograph...VERY COOL!

Hope you can make it, if you can, we will grab a workout together and food...what we do all weekend at night! LOL

Saturday is the BUSIEST day of the expo...very very VERY crowded....if you see something you like on Friday...buy it, most likely if you wait until Sunday...it will be sold out!

And the Columbus ABC...on Saturday night..We have the enire gym to ourselves, just ABC people...COOL!

Damn that sounds amazing....if i could afford it and wasn't planning a wedding (hahaha) i'd do it for sure!

just a little tip for those who are lookin for a room, there is a double tree down the street from the convention center, along the river. if youve never been to a double tree, you get two double beds in one room, and a foldout couch in the living room, theres also plenty of space on the floor as well, so if a few of you guys want to save some money, you could all pitch in and pay almost nothing. We got 12 people in a room once, and there were no complaints. throwin it out there.... rooms aint that expensive to start with either.

The hotel room is booked and it is only like a 5 hour drive from Chicago to Columbus. I am so pumped up for this. Holiday Inn Downtown had a good military discount....just saying from my fellow Brothers in Arms!!

1) BigAnt's "Infared" idea is sweet. Loved the explanation.

2) Since I am in the military, I do like the para-military theme the compound had. Only concern is that since imitation is the sincerist form of flattery, how many of the "competitors" will take the army theme and do some kinda cheap knock-off? But hell, if Animal keeps the military theme, at least I already got some duds to blend in!!!!

3) Would like to help out if I am allowed. I am bringing the wife and can send her out on her own to scavenge and do the hunter/gatherer thing while I support corparate.

4). As chessy as it sounds, I don't know what I am more excited about, the Expo and the Cage, or finally meeting some of the key forvm members. It will be an honor to shake hands with my brothers (and a few sisters) that have provided me some great advice, direction, and tons of motivation these last two years!

Later...

A cool new idea would be...if we have someone going into explanation of certain exercises...Examaple>+: Biceps, telling about different biceps exercises and have maybe Evan flexing showing the biceps short and long head...than out of nowhere with loud music in the background comes Big Al and House, and they go into a bicpe posedown with Evan, the crowd votes who is the best, than we pull 3-5 people from the crowd/Forum and they pose down for the bicpes, again, a vote for the winner, and the winner gets a Animal poster/bumper sticker/shirt (a prize pack) and their picture will be taken with the Pro biceps winner. How cool will this be? When The Cage of 2010 is over people go home and see their picture on the Forum winning the posedown stading/flexing with the Pro winner!

We can do this all weekend, different body parts for different days....

Also maybe some ready made to drink samples of Shock Therapy, Storm, Intra-Aid,
Ultra Iso Whey already to serve like in those boxed/chilled mixers vendors use....

Yeah, a lot easier access than what you would think. I went out there in 2008 during the "Reign of Yellow" theme and wearing your yellow shirt was pretty much a ticket into the action. The Cage is very unique in that respect. It's cool...it's almost like everyone is part of it. Forvm members were involved in many different things and we had front row seats to all the excitement. The ABC event was unreal. Last year some forvm members even got to be interns in The Cage. Read through some of The Cage sections here on the forvm, it really is just like everyone says. The pros are very approachable, same with everyone else you see posting on here. It's like running into an old friend. You'll have a great time!

Last year that The Black out the added "The Box." A section specifically for FORVM members. It had all of the powder supps available, plus you got a mix boy. They had a mini fridge and microwave for the dieters as well. It was watched and you had to have FORVM membership to get in it. Pretty neat way of keeping things solely for the family.

Called to reserve a room today. They said that some companies had rooms reserved if I had a company code. Does this include Animal and are these for FORVM members, or reps, pros, etc?
