Standout, stalwart member of Animal Nation for several years running, Bobby “Powerswitch” Fields is a world-record holding powerlifter who trains out of Universal Athletics in Allentown (PA) with his wife Kathy and another fellow champion, Dave Barth. Powerswitch has held numerous world records in powerlifting/Superlifting, including an 850 lb squat (220 lb Masters) and an IPA total world record in his class, at 2170. He’s also hit 755 on the bench press. An all-around gifted lifter, Fields has displayed his versatility during past iterations of The Cage, having benched, squatted and deadlifted in stellar fashion, both for reps and heavy singles.

In 2013, Powerswitch and his clan will take it all to the next level inside The Cage, with Bobby stepping up to deadlift big numbers. Just how big? Stop by and see for yourself. We know it's going to be electrifying. See how the "Bulgarian Pull" technique has helped improve his deadlift and learn about the technique itself. So If you want to witness the switch get flipped on the deadlift, there’s only one place to see it happen live—The Cage at the Arnold Expo.

My goal this year is to introduce an odd exercise that has helped bring my deadlift out of the gutter...At Universal Athletics we call it the "Bulgarian Pull"...I've recently been studying the European Block lifters who seem to really excel in their pulls...Lifters like Koklyaev, Pozdeev, Belyaev and Ano Turtiainen...It was through studying these lifters that I came across this odd lift that happened to really jolt my deadlift training...After several training sessions with my Westside bros Dave Hoff and Joe Jester my form and set up of this lift were strengthened (not perfected...yet) and my pull started to really improve...Since this lift requires weight across the shoulders while performing a deadlift from the floor the total weight lifted will be combined weight...I'll be looking to hit a combined weight of between 650-700lbs. It will be a PR for me so we'll just have to see how this training cycle goes and what The Cage atmosphere will bring....See you in the Cage bros........Powerswitch

I am sooooo looking forward to this event!!!! Expect some freaky lifts from all of us!!! ;)

My hubby, myself and our partner Dave are very appreciative for this opportunity to put on a good show for all the Animals! We absolutely LOVE the Animal Family and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. You won't find another company out there who takes care of their customers and fans like Universal Nutrition. Think about it, who else has elite lifters and bodybuilders showcasing their talent and knowledge AND provides numerous opportunities for fans to rub elbows with them as well as train with them? NOBODY else!!!

This is always one of my favorite exhibitions.

Completely badass when Dave Barth's nose started bleeding mid-set a couple years ago.

had the privelage to put in sum work with Bobby today. super excited to try out this Bulgarian Pull movement, no idea what to expect. after hitting a few rounds, struggling with another, and flat out failing on the last...i have a complete understanding and respect for it. not to mention a new found love for the movement. Bobby hit a 70lb PR with them today far surpassing me. extremely difficult move, very humbling. after seeing them first hand and doing them myself it is not something anyone will want to miss in The Cage this year, expecially with the weight Bobby will b moving..

The honor was all mine big man! I want to thank you for travelling down and pushing me. The ABC was awesome and it was so great to see the Animal family again. You described the lift to a tee - it is a very humbling exercise. As per our discussion at dinner, I definitely feel we're a part of a small percent that have the privilege of representing Universal Nutrition in the Cage. I'm really looking forward to training with you in our preparation for the Cage. Good luck in your meet next weekend - and good luck to all our Animal brethren competing as well. Stay safe and God Bless...Powerswitch
