Im telling you. WORDS CAN NOT DESCRIBE the atmosphere in The Cage when he squatted at the O. It was in the fucking air. It was seriously like a high. The Cage was packed. The isles were packed on all sides. The music was cranked up. Vinny G on the mic. Shit was unfucking real. Even now when I watch the videos, I can feel it in my chest. Pumps me the hell up.

HIGA always puts on a kick ass strongman lifting exhibition. I wonder what he'll have up his sleeve for this year's Arnold.

Two big squatters! Gonna kick ass and get the crowd amped up

Mono lift = even more crazy squat exhibitions.


It's time to step up our game............................

Gotta step it up every year.


I hope you are referring to yourself and J-Dawg in a battle royal

One year, NG will man up to it.


No, J-Dawg is always ducking me

I'm fuckin pumped to see hoss and powerswitch doing their thing again in the cage. I still talk about both those dude regularly when discussing squats and DL's with people. I'm always like "ya that's impressive that u know a guy that did (whatever weight) but I've seen with my own eyes 2 dudes that are monsters lift weights I can't even fathom"

Shit is so cool to see and be a part of. I'm like a little kid in the front row all the time.
