The first, true and original Pros vs. Bros returns yet again to where it all began--The Cage. Pitting two Animal teams comprised of diverse members of the Animal crew, including IFBB pros like Wrath and Ox against an upstart band of Universal brothers, like Antoine Vaillant and Josh Halladay, plus incorporating several game members from the FORVM in a three-way throw-down for lifting supremacy. Staying with the powerlifting theme of The Cage, the fellas will go rep-for-rep on the Big Three—bench, squats and deadlifts, and the team with the highest total number of reps wins. It is just that easy. So close down The Cage with us on Sunday afternoon, March 3rd at 3pm with the blowout FORVM member event, headlined by Pros vs. Bros and pull for Team Red, Team Yellow or the boys from Universal.

I think a FORVM event would be awesome. Maybe have a drawing, something special to honor the watchmen... Tickets to the night show/prejudging, gym bags full of gear. All FORVM exclusive. Maybe have something special lined up for Active Duty/Veteran Animals. Something small and exclusive. We aren't hard to please and we love things the general public/fans can't get their hands on.

Pros vs Bros etc would be sweet addition to the professional vid. Allow some of the long standing "bros" to get a little FaceTime. I know enforcer, big c, guns, a few other guys would love to throw some heavy shit around and show what they are made of.

Who's down??? Seems like every year this is always something fun to watch, and I had the honor to be apart of the 500 lbs deadlift marathon a few years ago. It pushes one another and lets some of the "lesser known" members of the Legion get to lift on the big stage like the Pro's do..

I'm down for whatever... name your terms. I may be having my knee scoped and cleaned first week of Feb, so squats may be out, but either way... my hat is officially in the ring.

If the head honchos allow, I'd be willing to throw my hat into the ring for 315 deads for reps with anyone sub 190. Fuck.... anyone actually, win or lose. Always been a dream of mine to do something in there.

Or perhaps a team medley. 3 guys on a team, >200 pounds at 315, 200-250 at 405 and 250+ at 495 for reps, highest total wins?

Idk, just tossin around ideas is all.

Kowboy
01-18-13, 1:36 pm
wish I could hang w/ 495 for reps but even at 260 that is out of my league except maybe for 1. really need to get my strength up to match my size lol I would love to get involved in one of these contests though.

Crew* vs. Legion** (Pros vs. Bros and Bros vs. Bros)
Legion vs. Legion (Bros vs. Bros)
Pros vs. Pros
Pros vs. Bros (Crew or Legion)

* Crew = Animal Crew (sponsored Athletes and/or Staff)
** Legion = Any member of the FORVM here

I'm in the same boat as you my man, my strength does not match my size. But yeah, I would love to take part.

You know, if they do team events and have us on opposite teams, it would probably equal out. Or we could go head-to-head on something...hmm...

For sure get the Legion here involved and mebbe sum Pros too, but also I think fellas like Enforcer, G, NG and the rest of the fellas want a piece of the action... Esp. as they are in powerlifting mode, prepping for their meet at the end of this month...

I smell a deadlift challenge in our future.... *hopefully*

I like the idea of Pro's vs Bro's (maybe one of each per team... ex.- GDiesel and BamBam vs Enforcer and Trebin or whatever...) and Bro's vs Bro's cuz it gives the guys a chance to shine at The Cage like the Pros do.

I like 315 for reps, not super impressive like 405 or 500 but I think it will relate to more people watching in the cage. Probably a weight they have picked up before ya know. Squatting for reps is brutal and squats are not my strength but I would hit that as well. Log press, axle press, a press medley, grip medley or mini strongman I am down for as well. I could see if I could get some farmers handles, stones or some shit like that (can't guarantee it).

Could be three teams, black, red and yellow with G, CC and NG the captains too. More teams, but smaller...

I read URep's post a little ways back on having 6-8 per team and I think 6 would be good... that way on each of the "Big 3" lifts, you have a 2 on 2 matchup. Would maybe even things out if you had an experienced lifter and a younger guy vs a team of the same? Idk,... just brainstorming.

Phil800101
01-22-13, 4:48 pm
I like the Team Animal vs Team Universal idea. Here's my thoughts on how to make it happen.

Like URep said, have G captain Team Animal and CC captain Team Universal, with J-Dawg on one team and NG on another, and then maybe one other pro on each team. So at the top we have 2-3 on each team. Follow that with 3-4 bros per team, but ultimately coming down to a team number that is divisible by 3. Teams would therefore look something like this:

Animal
G-Diesel
J-Dawg
Pro
Bro
Bro
Bro

Universal
CC
NG
Pro
Bro
Bro
Bro

For events, we go with the classic squat/bench/dead. Each team would enter two competitors in each event. For numbers, go with body weight for bench, and (based on what I've seen in here so far) 315 each for squat and deadlift (maybe heavier based on the competitors). The idea would be to have bros represented in each event, with a mix of pros and the Animal crew. Matchups would look something like this:

Squat
J-Dawg
NG
Bro(Animal)
Bro (Universal)

Bench
G-Diesel
Pro (Universal)
Bro (Animal)
Bro (Universal)

Deadlift
Pro (Animal)
CC
Bro (Animal)
Bro (Universal)

The winner of each event would be determined by the total number of reps each team put up in the event. The overall winner would be determined by whichever team wins the most events, whether two out of three or three out of three.

Now as we all know, the Cage is jam-packed with events and the schedule is tight as all hell. Therefore, if this were to be done I would say to have one event on each day. This allows for the greatest flexibility time and schedule-wise. Furthermore, doing it this way spreads the event out over the course of the entire weekend. This allows for greater visibility in that more people overall will have a chance to see it than if it were a one-day thing. I think this is important as to me one of the greatest things about pros versus bros is that it allows the general public who may be unfamiliar with Animal, Universal, and the Forum here to see how members of the Legion are included in events in The Cage...and on a broader scale how Animal/Universal includes their fans and gives something back to them.

Overall, I think this setup is relatively simple, easy to follow (for those outside the Cage watching), easy to squeeze in, and very doable. Based on the people we have interested right now, everyone could be included. Besides that, if there are more people interested it would be easy to add onto each team...I think the only limiting factor in that regard is time.

Thoughts?

Man always good to see support like this, was an awesome event. Even if it just turns into some kinda donation thing from members and those around to see someone do something totally off the wall and random. Maybe a random member will step up and say they want to squat XXXlbs, or DL XXXlbs and people can throw in to see it happen and get them more psyched up.

These are just ideas... I dont remember how many fellas are interested in this event. I figured teams of 6 would work, but that only leaves 5 open slots for the Legion. That enough? Or should we try to squeeze everyone in? Or, do we create events like 315 deads for reps, and then have the bros who want to join post up their numbers and only pick based on sum criteria?

Yeah, I like the setup but maybe with only 1 pro and 3-4 bros per team. Something like this:

Pro
Crew
Crew
Bro
Bro
Bro

I think the inclusion of pros is a good thing, as it draws the crowd in more than straight-up bros vs bros would. And we all know the Animal/Universal crew has some beasts who can really sling the iron. Having pros/crew/bros is really inclusive, and I think in some way serves as an example of what the Forvm is all about...brotherhood, access, and inclusion.

Nope. Too many cooks, blah blah blah...

If it were up to me, I'd continue with the Train with an Animal promo but also have more educational opportunities where ya can learn from the powerlifters. So if ya wanna learn the finer points of DL, Dan Green runs a mini-seminar at the ABC event with members signin up. Ya could also have an exhibition, with teams for fun, like G goin head to head with someone, etc. But if ya just want to lift with ur pal, ya can do that too. Etc.

You got my support on this one, 110%.

The learning seminars kind of happened last year without anything formal. I know Higa and Seath teamed up to teacha bunch of us last year and it turned into so much more with Higa, Seath, Randal, hawthorne, Skiba and many more teaching a large group of us on Squats and Deads.

Unfortunately, there aint time for everything. Only one FORVM event... So it you fellas want an event just for yourselves, that might work, but then thats all it would be... No Ox, no Wrath, etc.

Completely undersatand and if it comes to the big guys lifting heavy stuff and the pros giving seminars, I'll take that over me having an opportunity to lift in the cage any day. With this years line up, it seems like non stop hits all 3 days so either way, I'm set.

Universal Rep
02-01-13, 12:54 pm
Yup.



Yeah, I like the setup but maybe with only 1 pro and 3-4 bros per team. Something like this:

Pro
Crew
Crew
Bro
Bro
Bro

I think the inclusion of pros is a good thing, as it draws the crowd in more than straight-up bros vs bros would. And we all know the Animal/Universal crew has some beasts who can really sling the iron. Having pros/crew/bros is really inclusive, and I think in some way serves as an example of what the Forvm is all about...brotherhood, access, and inclusion.

Agreed. If ya include Pros, ya get a crowd. And when ya get a crowd, it gives lifters more adrenaline. Plus, with the videotapin, it looks cooler, haha... this setup means regular Bros from the Legion get to participate and rub shoulders with Corporate and with the Pros. Win-win, eh?

I am good with whatever Corp decides to do. If I am choosen to lift that would be sick, if I'm not, try again next year. Its not as if everyone who wants to lift in the Cage is going to be able to lift. With all the seminars and lifts and everything that goes on with the Cage, there is only so much time during the weekend and as Urep said before, the Pro's are what brings the fan over and builds the excitement of the Cage.

Agree. Only so much time. But i think it will still attract. Having a pro compete next to a bro is something g really cool. People will watch wo during how they can become a part of that. And that will bring them in to the forvm.

This year, as should be pretty clear, Corporate went out to get a slam dunk list of PLers do do their thing and youll see a lot of new faces. By far, this year's lineup is the biggest ever... Like the event thats gonna be announced today for example.

But, knowin that the brand is nuthin without the fans, Animal's life blood, Corporate knows to keep a dedicated event for the Legion. Win-win.

Yeah I know that pretty much the only event I would be able to get more than 3 or 4 reps would be the deads for 315. My bench isn't up to being able to rep my body weight and my max squat is only 335 or so. So if the dead lift spots are all filled up I can wait until next year to leave room for someone else. But if I am in for the dead lift I plan on getting a lot of reps haha
