Fellow Animals, thanks for all the motivation this weekend in the cage! I was really draggin on low energy comin off a long layoff and i was scared i was gonna disappoint. But the intensity form the all of u in the cage pulled me out of it and pushed me to do more than i could imagine. The 765 was 30 pounds more than my best ever when everything was clicking just right; just goes to show how important havig great training partners and a positive training environment to push u thru the rough times we all have.

Its hard to tell depth from this angle, I am going to have to say it was a mile high! Plus he was wearing 2ply hanes underwear, so it doesn't count as raw.

haha mile high huh? So the quarter he handed me saying it was from him picking it up with his butt on that lift is not real? Darn, was hoping to turn that into cash on ebay!

Nope, he doesn't like to carry around a wallet so he keeps all his money, IDs, and credit cards between his cheeks at all times...... which makes it all the more impressive because he always gives correct change

Really great stuff to see. The only problem was I thought he was going to choke to death from the chalk on his back when people were hitting him.

Incredible squat, Byrd. To me, this was the 'best moment in the Cage' for me throughout the entire weekend.

This is kind of a funny story from Friday....

I introduced a friend of mine to Sam and we were BSing when I asked him if he was doing a Squat Exhibition at the Cage again. He said he didn't think so. I grabbed the little postcard and told him he was Saturday at 3:00. He just said "huh, wonder what I should do?" Then of course he ends up breaking the raw record. Truly an amazing accomplishment.

Definitely an insane lift. As Sam was telling me b/c of his studies and work, he hasn't been able to train consistently. Then he hits 730lb (a record) and then 765lb right after. Absolutely amazing. Way to go brother.
