View Full Version : BIG BYRD "Squats With No Hands: The Sequel"

02-21-13, 6:35 pm

Animal athlete Sam Byrd is one of the greatest squatters and most dynamic powerlifters of all-time. The former Marine and current attorney-by-day is a Cage veteran with a flair for the dramatic, best epitomized by his mythical no-hands squat of 635 with no belt and no wraps in 2012, or his squatting a monstrous 825 raw in 2011 while deep in a precontest bodybuilding diet.
Boasting five different all-time world records in the squat, there's literally no stopping Big Byrd. After a long training break, on practically no notice, Sam will step into the breach and attempt to top his mythical no-hands squat performance of 2012. Will he succeed? Is that even possible?

When asked about yet another logic-defying lift at The Cage, Big Byrd replied...

"One of the best things about The Cage is being able to witness feats of strength you have never seen before and may never see again. Watching Animals hoist insane poundage in the conventional lifts is awe-inspiring in and of itself, but I wanted to take it up a notch. I also want to have some fun. I remember back in the day when the strongmen of yore were in circus sideshows lifting objects and performing various unexpected feats of strength. To spice things up a bit I wanted to do my own circus left, a balancing act of sorts, hitting a huge squat while balancing the bar on my back with no hands. Come check it out. I promise you've never seen anything like this before."

Be sure you're there to see it go down... At The Cage. Saturday, March 2nd at 1:30pm, with special commentary by Dan "The Savage" Green.
