i would just like to say that i would be willing to do the 500 for reps in the deadlift in the cage this year. i would like to be on Big C's team as well.

Big C

We could use a guy like Kolb anchoring the team.

I would prefer a lower weight (405 to 455) for higher reps....but if it's 500 so be it. That's fine with me. As long as I can do it how I'm used to training, with straps. I'm a bodybuilder not a powerlifter or strongman lol.

Yeah bro.. I can't wait to lift! I know u said u would go up against Wycked but then nobody else seemed to want to other than you so I just said that meaning if they needed more people or whatever for a competition I'd gladly step up! It seems that there are only a select few who want to lift, but many who want to watch.. just my 2 cents.

I understand....to hell with being a spectator, get ya'lls asses in there and do something. To hell with how strong you may or may not be. It's not about all that, it's about getting in there, getting involved....being a part of something. The camaraderie that goes on in these events are priceless. I'd rather get in there and make a complete ass of myself than just sit by and watch someone else.

Here are a list of those that have stated they want in. If anyone wants to be added, state your intentions in this thread.

From here we can begin to set up match ups. I have some ideas of what I think would be some great events.

Pros

VinnyG (bodyweight squats for reps)
House
Wycked
BigAl
Wrath
HigaMonster
S.Clarida
Seath242 (deads)
BigBen (deads)
Big D (deads)

Bros

G Diesel
C.Coronato
Aggression
Enforcer
Big C
Dannynb
Scals17
T.Kemble (military press - Sunday only)
Iceiktitan
BamBam92 (deads)
jesse45690

Now every match up does not have to be a "Pro" vs a "Bro". It could be a Bro vs a Bro, a Pro vs a Pro and it could be a triple match or even teams (2 on 2).

If you guys have a preference on a particular lift let me know and we will try to pair it up.

If you are not going to be in Ohio for the Arnold or want off the list, let me know.

Took out my name. Can't wait to watch these strong bastards move some weight.

I can't wait for this shit!! It's going to be HUGE!! I want to bring the fucking roof down!! Big C, Enforcer.. you ready?! PRIME TIME DEADLIFTS!! You gotta love it!!

And I'll gladly take him on.. should hit the Cage about 240-250 myself and could hope to hit either one of those weights for 20-30 reps.. When r we looking to do the bench competition?

Or touch and go Deadlifts. Pause every DL on the ground.

HIGA MONSTER


This is the plan right? All deads come to a "Dead" stop on the ground ....No bouncing the reps or touch and go? have all the weight deload on the floor then pull again.

Big C
01-11-11, 8:10 pm
If we are gonna be deadlifting that much weight for reps....there were no rules before about "how" to do the rep, I will deadlift how I am accoustomed to doing it. When I go that high, I tend to move a little faster.

For instance, I use straps so that's how I'll do my reps. Take a look back at Cage '09 each guy did it their own way.

Well I figured if we are all going to use the same weight we would do the same type of lift. There "was" no rules at the previous cages but this year I thought we were having judges for the lifts. I know Higa judging the Squats for depth so everyone lifts are the same difficulty. I figured we would do the same for the deadlift.

Right right bro I get what you're saying. I hadn't heard anything about judges...usually we just get in there and do our thing and Vinny G counts the reps. I know I've competed in the curls the past couple years and by the end, those last several reps are "cheat" reps because we are do damn tired. But they still count. Pretty hard to cheat on a deadlift though....either you come up with it or you don't lol. But I know you guys do powerlifting and meets have rules on how the lift should be performed. Bros/Pros is more for fun....and bragging rights of course lol.

HIGA MONSTER
01-11-11, 11:10 pm
Any word on the judging?
No hitching, no high squats, no straps, etc...
HIGA MONSTER


Do you want to be the judge (except for your lift obviously)?


Sure. I will fuckin do it.

Let the people speak...if they want me to do it, I will do it.
Rules will be stated clear way before the Cage. If everyone is in agreement of what the rules are, don't hate if you don't get a rep from me.

Count me in for 500 lb Deadlift for reps NG...if you want me to do that. No belt, no straps...RAW DOG.
HIGA MONSTER


I think Higa would be a great judge, great guy who knows his shit. And if Im doin deads, Im using a belt bro, after years of abuse playing football, I need it...lol
I thought this was settled already, but I will let naturalguy confirm that I was going to be the judge of all the Powerlifting lifts in The Cage, except for.

If I am picked to be the judge, I want to specifically make a video showing the rules that I will follow. These rules will also be approved by Corporate so that everyone understands what I am watching to judge as a legal rep.

As for the Deadlift, I will pick Rage to be my head judge. He can give me the down signal. If Rage doesn't want to do it, I nominate Skibas Gym to do it for me.
I will not touch and go, I will not hitch and I expect my judge to not give me a rep if it doesn't qualify.

I'd rather live with the fact that I got all my reps legit, even if its for fun and braggging rights. I don't want to tarnish the lifting in The Cage by doing half-reps or touch and go lifting. That is not Grant Higa.

I want the audience inside & out of The Cage to know that Animal Pak puts on a huge show in our booth with legit lifting exhibitions and walk away saying, "Holy shit, I can't wait for these motherfuckers to come back next year!"

The last thing I want to hear in person, or online is that Animal Pak doesn't put on good lifting exhibitions in the Cage because one guy didn't touch his chest on a couple of reps in the Bench, or he didn't bury his Squats, or he didn't stand erect with shoulders back on the Deadlift.

Fuck that shit. Do it legit, or we spit on our very name itself. Am I'm a fuckin ANIMAL...
HIGA MONSTER

Big C
01-12-11, 12:05 am
I respect that....but don't fix it if it ain't broke. What exactly needs fixed with Pros/Bros? Kuclo didn't sink his squats as far as some others yet he still won last year and no one complained or said Animal didn't showcase legit lifting exhibitions. I'm 110% Animal and would never disrespect the Cage...and I've never heard anything negative about Pros/Bros in the past from anyone. Just seems like we are making these events catered to powerlifting "rules." The bar has already been set to 500 pounds just because a group of guys wanted it that high.

If there are judges so be it, if you want to count or not count my reps so be it....I plan on doing a lift how I am used to doing the lift and giving the crowd a good show.

Things didn't go down the way I felt they should have last year with the high rep deads. Vinny was even calling it done before one of them was finished. When it comes to pros vs bros or bros vs bros, I personally feel it's important to use proper form and I will stick with that this year and each year hereafter. When I did my prep for the squat till you drop, I lowered my depth to make them legit. The rules need to be established and enforced. Have fun, but do it right.

I agree with you Rage, I missed the high rep deads comp last year so I didn't see it. It's just that when you get up there in reps (such as curls or whatever), it's hard not to sacrifice form a bit as the body starts to tire out.

Here is how I feel, we should have a judge - Higa - however this is a fun competition and guys will be doing high reps so it doesn't have to be contest strict. If there is an obvious rep that is missed then it should not be counted. We can all come to an agreement on proper form for each lift before hand.

Does that make sense? Do you guys agree?

Agree. Let's not get too carried away here. If someone is hitting up 40+ reps on a deadlift, then form should be strict from start to finish. A little hitch on the 40th rep is no problem in my mind. Barbell curls, as Big C stated, is fine when you have a few cheat curls at the end, but obvious half-reps shouldn't count. Squats, parallel, or ATG, whatever is agreed upon, should be enforced, strictly. Bench Press .. hit your chest. Full lockout? I guess that's to be decided by the competitors. On high rep presses, maybe slightly before lockout. Maxes or big weight presses, full lockout.

It's a combo of not being Debbie Downer (lol) and taking the fun out of the event and still moving the weight in the proper range of motion. I don't think we should restrict some of the more basic bodybuilding gear like straps or wrist wraps or belts or knee wraps (esp. if some of the guys involved aren't powerlifters). And everyone involved in the lifts should come to agreement on the rules prior to the day of the lift.

Agreed. I think once it gets to be so serious it gets out of hand. No need for videos or "powerlifting" style rules. Like it has been stated, if it blatant it is not a rep. Most guys dont have any problem with that.

My apologies if I feel like I offended anyone with my post.

Its second nature for me to get defensive with lifting rules in Powerlifting & Strongman because we either get 3 red lights, or lose points in the overall standings due to a missed rep. Again, I am sorry but that is just me.
Thats why I inquired about the rules earlier in this thread.

The comraderie and reputation of The Cage is second to none, and I got to experience that for the first time last year. I am just a guy that lets my lifting do the talking as best as possible and hope to continue that for Animal Pak.

See you in March,
HIGA

01-12-11, 10:26 am
I agree with ya NG. If your going to do the lift just do it right. Your going to get tired on these high reps...your form is going to suffer...but if your doing a dead, at least hit the floor on each rep....if your doing a squat...at least get close to parallel. You guys know what I'm talking about. It's about being competitive but having a great time and setting an example for everyone.

I guess if we if we have to "man" up, House will have to ditch his straps he uses to curl also. He used them against me last year, who cares? He isn't a powerlifter.

if the lift is being judged, and being judge PROPERLY, straps would automatically get you a red light.

I think it depends. I dont Deadlift with straps at home, Especially singles., but thats simply because i dont go above 10 reps. When i hit 21 with 315, i needed those straps. Same went for Aggression and Scals, 50+ reps, isnt exactly powerlifting, i dont see any problem with straps in higher rep movements like that.

Aggression
01-12-11, 11:24 am
High rep lifts, such as deadlifting 225lbs for 30, 40, 50 reps warrant straps. No if, and's, or buts. The World's Strongest Man even uses straps in the events when deadlifting trucks and cars.

Stop this nonsense in here about straps, belts, raw, eqipped, whatever the fuck. I'm tired of it. If you're in the ring to compete, then decide then and there to use 'help' or not. Leave it up to those competing against each other to make a decision for THEIR event. All this talk is pointless.

I know John from powerlifting meet and have trained with him a couple times in this video he calls these Bulllshit Deadlift

815 X 3 on Deadlift

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4EU4bt2AVw


See this is not what I want to see Bounceing the weight off the floor abusing the use of the straps to help hitch the weight. I'm pretty sure everyone agrees that no reps that looks like this should count. Use the straps if you need to I really don't mind at all but lets at least do the same type of lift.

"Can't we all just get along...???" *LOL*

Haha we are. This is what happens when you get a bunch of passionate guys discussing weightlifting.

It's all good. And I agree with what you said Seath.....those are ugly and reps like that shouldn't count.

815 X 3 on Deadlift

Haha! That was horrid form by Connor!

The problem is, not too many guys can get away with telling Big Jon Connor that his deadlift form sucks when he weighs 410 lbs!!

I can talk shit to him though cause I've seen him blow almost all of his prize money on lap dances at a strip bar in Gatineau, Quebec 2 years ago! Leverage baby!
Last year, we competed in Cheneville, Quebec and this guy came up to us and said, "I remember you. You were the guy laying on the stage while the girl was ALL OVER you doing her dance!" Classic!

Well yeah I guess so! If I get to talk to the big man at the Arnold, I'll see if I can borrow a wig and skirt if he has one. I think Evan is one of the world's top bodybuilders too...but damn what do I know, right?

Evan will actually be ONSTAGE there, so until you are standing next to him, dont put youself in the same boat.
BUT after he gets OFFSTAGE, and he decides to deadlift 500lbs with straps.. ill ask him.

He HOWEVER isnt lifting in the cage and the only 1 begging to not only 1) use a lighter weight but 2) use straps.
i didnt see any of the other 5 contestants ask for them... did you?

so next time ya show me a youtube video about deadlifting with straps how about you look up Andy Bolten pullin 1008lbs with NO straps and just kinda holding it there hangin the fuck out.

shush. thanks.

I think it depends. I dont Deadlift with straps at home, Especially singles., but thats simply because i dont go above 10 reps. When i hit 21 with 315, i needed those straps. Same went for Aggression and Scals, 50+ reps, isnt exactly powerlifting, i dont see any problem with straps in higher rep movements like that.

Well said big bro. You gonna be competing this year? Hope to see your name in one of the matchups soon...

You've def turned it up a notch since last year's match.

High rep lifts, such as deadlifting 225lbs for 30, 40, 50 reps warrant straps. No if, and's, or buts. The World's Strongest Man even uses straps in the events when deadlifting trucks and cars.

Stop this nonsense in here about straps, belts, raw, eqipped, whatever the fuck. I'm tired of it. If you're in the ring to compete, then decide then and there to use 'help' or not. Leave it up to those competing against each other to make a decision for THEIR event. All this talk is pointless.

I agree with this completely... if the World's Strongest Men can use straps, then use them. Powerlifting has it's own rules, BUT this isn't a powerlifting competition. Big C has proven himself in the Cage before.. I don't see anyone challenging him to a curl contest. LOL

Here is how I feel, we should have a judge - Higa - however this is a fun competition and guys will be doing high reps so it doesn't have to be contest strict. If there is an obvious rep that is missed then it should not be counted. We can all come to an agreement on proper form for each lift before hand.

Does that make sense? Do you guys agree?

Agreed homie

Enforcer
01-14-11, 1:14 pm
Higa will keep an eye on form and keep everybody honest... But let's not ruin the spirit of this competition. This is for fun and to put on a good show for the folks that come out to the expo.

Peace, G


Agreed. I think once it gets to be so serious it gets out of hand. No need for videos or "powerlifting" style rules. Like it has been stated, if it blatant it is not a rep. Most guys dont have any problem with that.

Agreed and I couldnt have said it better myself
