If you are attending the Arnold this year, you have an opportunity to train with an Animal. We did this the past few years and this is really a unique opportunity. Here's the deal. Tell us which Animal from the FORVM you would want to train with... And why.

- Wrath
- Ox
- Kuclo
- The House
- The Freak
- Vinny
- BigAnt
- Big Al
- G Diesel

The Animal Crew will pick the best entries. This will go down on the Friday night of the Arnold weekend (March 5th) so you gotta be there to qualify.

Post your entries right here in this thread.

Seriously, if you haven't had the opportunity to get with meet these guys at an ABC, make sure you get in on this one. It's a chance of a lifetime to pick their brains for training info, diet tips, and so on.... PLUS I guarantee it will be an experience you won't soon forget.... Just sayin...

I'd have to say, Vinny!!! I've followed his career for quite some time, and have followed him from bodyspace, to here, to myspace, and facebook, and it would be an incredible opportunity to train with him, and pick his brain in person!!! (And, finally, it wouldn't look like I was stalkin' him, or something... *LOL*)

if i got chosen to train with a pro i would love to train with ox...his dedication and work ethic are the first two things that come to mind with me on reasons why i already idolize him and his growning career...i also share a similar past as him so i feel i directly relate to the certain things that drove him to become the class act that he is and even though were are only i think about a year apart in age i look up to him and follow his posts on here and other forums so that i may always have a chance to learn something else from him...so to be able to directly train with him would not only be the greatest privilege but also a huge freakin honor...i really appreciate ene the oppurtunity to be considered for this and chosen or not i look forward to seeing ox and all the animal athletes at the cage this year....thanks!

I want to train with Evan. At the National ABC last year, he asked to work in me on a few sets of Back and I want the oppurtunity to really pick his brain on back training on a full training session this year. He gave me some really good pointers and I still use them today. Plus with me being on a keto diet and I know he has used this diet a lot in the past, I have a lot of questions and I trust his advice on this subject.

I know I learned a lot from Vinny last year, in our workout with Sanga.

This year, I'd love to train with either BigAnt, Wrath, or Kuclo.

BigAnt, because I like his training philosophy, and he's another trainer, um, with experience.

Wrath, because he's about my own height, and knows about adding mass to the taller frame.

Kuclo, just because I like the guy a lot, and would love to throw the weights around with him.

This is a pretty awesome promo.

Kinda torn between House and Wrath.

House - juggles a family and bodybuilding with amazing success. Would like to hear some info from him on how he goes about it all. His training sessions pack the punch.

Wrath - No glamour, just trains balls to the wall and doesn't seem to get caught up with all the little details that can come with bodybuilding. He knows what works and sticks with it.

Good luck guys, can't wait to get to the ABC with everyone.

This is a hell of an experience! Every pro on that list brings a tremendous amount of experince and above all else are approachable and down to earth.

I'm ready to see a ton of entries in here!

Man, what an opportunity this is!

I would KILL to get a chance to workout with THE House! This guy is sensational, not to mention hes HUGE.

The intensity he trains with and the way, like Kon Rock said, how he balances his family with bodybuilding. He seems like a friendly feller and would take me under his wing for a workout.

I have watched many of his workouts on Muscle-Development and seeing one of those makes me want to get in the gym and work my butt off.

Im a young gun being only 17 and ANY info about ANYTHING would help me tremendously and i feel that House would help me out and answer any questions i may have and even throw in some pointers anyways. His arms are very massive and mine has always been a little lacking so im hoping i could get some great tips on this. His legs are also quite large and honestly, who doesnt want legs like his.

House, if you pick me, i can promise i will come with 200% intensity and train like a mad man. You would not be disappointed.

The House isn't just a Animal in the gym but one out in life also. He is a great guy and would love to be picked. I am not a guy of many words so i will end this here before i begin to bore everyone.


Good luck to all entries, people need to jump on this ASAP.

I gotta go with HOUSE on this one...first off, he's got the best wheelz in the business, would love for him to torture me thru a leg session, second of all he juggles family and work and bodybuilding...thats very comendable...and lastly he seems like such a down to earth guy...very approachable, he'd be very easy to talk with...and the man is all ANIMAL...thanks for the great opportunity...if your gonna be there fellas, get in on this.

My pick is Big Al. I had the pleasure at the last Cage and this years Olympia of chatn with him and picking his brain. Hes a very down to earth ANIMAL who takes his training seriously and always tries to push his body to new limits and heights. Not to mention always doing it with a joke or two. =) Al has the freak standard that I want to be able to reach one day in my training and efforts in this sport. So after chatn with him and seeing him put in work at the gym i know for a fact that big al can definitely help me pick up my game and improve it as well. With his knowledge in and outside of the gym i know there will be no limits on how hard i can push myself harder and further then i ever have. So it would be a great honor for me to work with Big Al at this years cage.

Last year I was lucky enough to train chest with Wrath and it was an awesome experience! So if anyone is considering trying to train with Wrath, it is definately worth trying!

Kuclo.
He's right in the middle of his rise to greatness as we speak, and I think getting to train and talk with him at this point in his life when he's working his hardest to get to the top would be very cool. And, after seeing his "Day in the Life" vid on MD, he just seems like a laid back dude.

I'm with mritter3 on picking HOUSE. Not only because I'm going with Ritter to the Arnold ;-), but I've always thought it was cool how House manages to juggle his responsibilities so well. I would love to pick his brain on ways to save time on things (including workouts) and stay organized, as my wife is pregnant with twins and I will need all the help I can get!! Another great promo Animal. Thanks for the opportunity.

I remember i got the opportunity to train with ox while prepping for the ny pro!

I have gone back through and read some of the entries... What I have noticed is, knowing most of these guys personally, all the reasons that you have quoted are SO true, from work ethic, intensity, to individual body part training (i.e. House's leg training)...

I hope more of you get in on this...

Kuclo and The Freak.

Steve basically because we're both 23-24 and I would love to pick his brain on how he's done what he has to his body.

Derik because I will be 8 weeks out from my show and wanna try to learn some new ways to hit my legs to bring them up. I know he's definitely full of knowledge in that area.

Not to announce The House's secret weapon without his ok but I have heard he has a pretty awesome wife that believes in him 150% and is thankful for what he does for his family therefore she does anything and everything she can so that all he has to worry about is work and training! ;)

I'm surprised this page doesn't have WAY more entries, this is the experience of a lifetime.

I was one of the winners in 2008. My boy Josh (Poptarts81) and I hit up chest with G-Diesel. It's an experience I'll never forget...I learned alot and had one hell of an awesome workout.

All I'm saying is, don't pass this up...

Don't give away the secret, Heather. We don't want the rest of the world catching up... The strong woman supporting her man makes the world go 'round.

I know man. This is crazy. Hell if people don't want to train with these guys, I have no problem training with more than one, haha. Training chest with Wrath last year was a great experience and it also gave me a chance to see that he was a really cool guy and no some asshole like some of the pro bodybuilders out there. Everyone associated with Universal/Animal are a class act and extremely down to earth guys! Thing I thought was awesome was having dinner @ Max & Erma's with all of them Friday and Saturday night last year! Definately a great experience and people should be jumping all over this!

im pickin G diesel. The guys the definition of what animal is. No bullshit, no frills, hard workin. His work, "On the Grind: Lessons from Three Decades of Hustle." has influenced me in all routes of my life, not just lifting. I have the 7 titles bulleted on a dry erase board that i see every morning, and i have them written on my straps, reminding me to be work hard and be a self made man, to be humble and defend the new guy at the rec, to protect my reputation.

He's been through the life and he knows whats goin on. I'd love to smash a back workout in with G.

I've actually had the opportunity to train in the same gym with Frank, not necessarily with him, but, just to be in the same gym inspires me to go balls to the wall. Wrath is super cool too, he's not one of those guys who shrugs you off because your half his size or asking dumb questions. He's definatly become my biggest inspiration and would kill for the opportunity to actually train WITH him.
This will be my first time attending the Arnold (not my last i hope) and training with Frank would make it memorable and just EPIC.

Here is my entry. I want to train with Wrath because he is a warrior. . . Every meal every set every trip to the grocery store is one step closer to the goal . . .

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Teddy Roosevelt

to me that is the enbodyment of Wrath. I want to walk in the step of a true warrior !!!

I would love the chance to train the Steve Kuclo. He's always been a huge inspiration, well before the Animal crew picked him up...I remember a few years back watchin videos of him and Justin Harris squattin and deadliftin 500 and 600+ lbs, thinkin how the HELL are this dude and I almost the same age lol. Those videos, and his more recent ones have powered me through a lot of leg days and deadlifting days. All this on top of being on the Dallas fire dept working 24 hour shifts. He seems like a real, genuine blue collar dude and it would be an incredible honor to get to train with him. Whether I get picked or not, HUGE props on being able to hold it down on the national stage, inspiring others like myself, and serving your community as a firefighter. Best of luck on gettin your pro card!

I'm planning on attending the Arnold this year for the first time and I would consider it a HUGE honor to workout with any of the pros occupying the cage this year. So toss my name in the hat and if it gets pulled by anyone I'll be blessed. I'd love to be put through a grueling back or arms workout. Rock on Brothers.

Not to announce The House's secret weapon without his ok but I have heard he has a pretty awesome wife that believes in him 150% and is thankful for what he does for his family therefore she does anything and everything she can so that all he has to worry about is work and training! ;)

Yeah Erik seems to be a very hard worker... very admirable guy.

Did I mention in this promo that I want to train with House? 'cause I want to train with House ;)

I'd have to say, Vinny!!! I've followed his career for quite some time, and have followed him from bodyspace, to here, to myspace, and facebook, and it would be an incredible opportunity to train with him, and pick his brain in person!!! (And, finally, it wouldn't look like I was stalkin' him, or something... *LOL*)

*A little bump...* Definitely would be priceless to train with him, or any of the pros on here...

Wondering whether or not if I was good enough to get the bike, in this case workout with one of the pros, or the bag full of switches for not making the cut. LOL. For me, I'll be happy either way for just being among my peers. Let's go Animals, start pestering the pros for that awesome workout.

If I had to chose, I'd love an opportunity to train with Wrath. The man's got the sickest arms in the game, plus watching the Animal DVD's and seeing how he trains, it seems like he's all business in the weight room, same way I approach my training. I try to instill the same type of mentality to my clients that I train on a daily basis, as well as quality knowledge. At my gym, I seem to get a hold of quite a few young men who want to add size, and Wrath has plenty to throw around. I know a thing or two about trianing for size, but I don't know everything. Hopefully, if I am chosen, Frank could give me a few tips to take back to Evansville to help my clients (and myself of course) put on that coveted size! I would be thrilled at the chance to train with ANY of the Animal Pros, hands down. It is obviously a rare opportunity that many people dream about. As a trainer, I see too many people in my line of work not give a fuck about their clientel. Well, brothers, that's how I make a living while I'm still in school. I don't try to suck people out of money, but rather try to give them as much knowledge as possible and make teaching points whenever I can. I take my job as serious as my training, and what better way to learn a few things than to train with someone who is atop the professional ranks in the IFBB? I want to get a lot more out of this than a night of lifting. Hopefully I'm lucky enough to be chosen!

For those who aren't aware Big Ant is a freak of nature and an invaluable wealth of knowledge. I trained legs with him last year at the National ABC, and my legs were a wreck the day after. The best part of it though, is it was without doubt the funnest leg day I have been through in my life. He kept it real and we worked hard, but had a damn good time. Ant is someone I look up to as I start a quest towards a natural pro card. He has withstood the test of time, and gets it in despite having one of the busiest schedules of anyone around.

Those lucky enough to get to train with him during the Arnold weekend are in for an experience you won't forget!

Yeah, we (OUR CREW LAST YEAR) killed legs, and had a great time doing it...but my lowers cramped up all weekend long and the plane ride home was torture...

So this year...2010...I am training legs earlier in the week, at home (Mon. or Tues) and use Thurs/Fri/Sat---In OH for Upper Body!

It got me motivated and out of my chair..took my big ass to the gym..But with everything I have been going through these past few months, I am going to have to say I am in no way in shape enough to take up anyone's time.

I am 20 years old now and have lived with the iron for 3 years and have gone from 170 lbs to 220 lbs and would love an opportunity to train with a true Animal. The way he trains, eats, and breaths is a true inspiration and resonates deep within me. I hate when people screw around in the gym, it truely aggrivates me when people talk to their buddies during their set.... Anyway, I'd love a chance to train with a monster.

It's not just about training and lifting weights with these guys, but you actually get to talk with them, joke with them. See their personalities, not just their physiques. Hell I'd train with Erik again any day....hell first time I ever did front delt raises with 135 on the bar...wouldn't have happened without him there to motivate me. Hell I'll train with any of 'em House, BigAnt, Big Al, G, Vinny, Freak, Wrath....doesn't matter and I can't believe more people aren't signing up for this.

I would like to train with Wrath ( although training with any of the pros would be an honor). Wrath's dedication to the iron is just impressive to say the least. I believe getting the chance to workout with him and get tips/advice would give me that extra motivation to meet my goals. (which is to become a swole mother effer) I hope to hear back soon if I'm selected.

I have amazing respect for all the animal guys but I feel I have the most in common with Steve Kuclo and would love an opportunity to train with him. Im 19 years old and I know Steve is among the younger of the animal guys. I also use some DC style training techniques which I know Steve continues to use. Aside from training I have aspirations of becoming a police officer so I can appreciate what Steve does being a firefighter himself.

I would give both of my nuts to be given the oppurtunity to train with Wrath. Ive been pushin iron plates around for most of my high school and college careers and throughout this time period, Wrath has been a huge inspiration and his accomplishments/attitude has served as a great motivation tool. If i were to choose any bodybuilder, professional or amateur, that I could soak of knowledge from and train with, hands down it would be Frank. I would highly appreciate the oppurtunity to be able to work with such a person such as Frank. With that said, Animal, I think you need to pick me to be able to train with frank this year at the 2010 arnold sports festival.

I know, Shocker -- we're all waiting for him, Kuclo, Wrath and House to make their choices, among others.

I even sent Kuclo a message on facebook asking what I could bribe him with. <grin>

Any one of them would be a helluva workout experience. I know I learned loads from Vinny last year!

The House
02-18-10, 9:21 pm
Man, what an opportunity this is!

I would KILL to get a chance to workout with THE House! This guy is sensational, not to mention hes HUGE.

The intensity he trains with and the way, like Kon Rock said, how he balances his family with bodybuilding. He seems like a friendly feller and would take me under his wing for a workout.

I have watched many of his workouts on Muscle-Development and seeing one of those makes me want to get in the gym and work my butt off.

Im a young gun being only 17 and ANY info about ANYTHING would help me tremendously and i feel that House would help me out and answer any questions i may have and even throw in some pointers anyways. His arms are very massive and mine has always been a little lacking so im hoping i could get some great tips on this. His legs are also quite large and honestly, who doesnt want legs like his.

House, if you pick me, i can promise i will come with 200% intensity and train like a mad man. You would not be disappointed.

The House isn't just a Animal in the gym but one out in life also. He is a great guy and would love to be picked. I am not a guy of many words so i will end this here before i begin to bore everyone.


Good luck to all entries, people need to jump on this ASAP.
