Never too late to talk about what can happen next year. One important lesson from this year--give athletes more time to prepare for a specific event and give the fans more time to get excited about an event. So if you have ideas or suggestions about who we should bring in for next year, post it up here.

We already have a challenge event, Sam Byrd calling out Eric Lilliebridge for squats.

i like the idea of all the biggest pullers in a last man stading faceoff for max weight. no weight class, equipped or unequipped doesnt matter. everyone hits the pull, move the bar weight up and so on until people begin to fall. last man to pull biggest weight wins. dan greene, brandon lilly, brent willis, marshall johnson, myself, invite young jesse norris back

This sounds awesome

Plus the Byrd v. Lilliebridge squat would be insance, either 1 on 1 or 3 on 3.

Would be cool to have Lilly and Spoto back again next year, the Westside gang was awesome last year, Donnie Thompson would be awesome, Mark Bell would be cool

Maybe a 3 day event! Each day the lifters do a lift, Squat(day1)/Bench(day2)/Dead(day3). See what kind of total we can get!

I would love to see Marshall Back in there! Really hard to top this lineup! Would like to see McBeast in there going for the 500 for reps!

A new goal of mine after seeing everyone get fucking crazy this weekend.. Is to eventually work up to a lift that is Cage worthy and throw it down in the next few years.

im with you on this Chase, it would be insane to step inside the cage and complete a lift. Deads are my best lift, but outta respect for the other guys there im not gonna step in the cage to pull a number that Ant is warming up with!

I would love to see a nice strongman demo. I know Steve Slater would probably let you use some of hte stuff so you wouldn't have to buy or ship it. Just for the advertising aspect of it. The events I would like to see:

Stone Loading, Log Press, 18" Deads, Circus Dumbbell, Grip or something.

I am a huge fan of strongman and I know P and Higa are both badasses. I would step in to hit it from an amateur side or mc it or whatever. Strongman is one of my passions so I would love to see it.

We also plan to record each lift at future Cage events. Maybe even print a sign of the previous great lifts. This way we can create a "Hall of Fame" for all the great lifters and their accomplishments. This way, veterans and rookies of The Cage have something to look up at and up to.

Donnie couldn't stick around for long at the Arnold, he had a seminar to do on Sunday and had to head out Saturday. He came around the Cage and hung out for awhile. I'm sure he would love to do a lifting exhibition in there. I can put the bug in his ear if you guys want him to. :) :) :) He's good people and such a big teddy bear - you guys would absolutely love him!! Everything he does for the sport he does for all the lifters. He loves helping out and is such a modest and humble person - genuinely golden-hearted.



That is a great idea, I am sure ed coan would be down for judging again as well.


Ed Coan was so stoked about being asked to judge/count P and Higa's lifts. He kept coming back to the Cage to see more of the action and absolutely loved everyone. He loves the sport and more importantly he loves everyone doing it - from the beginner/amateur to the top level athletes. I'm sure he would be down for it again. :) :) :)

I know one thing that needs to stay in the lineup, even though it's unofficial...Friday night dinner at Rodizio.

Squat-off sounds like it could be epic, I also like the "last man standing" max deadlift idea.

I agree, a strongman demo would be sweet. I remember the awesome one that Higa and Tyler put on the one year (2010?), with the famed "Civic Stone."

I always like seeing something that is educational as well as inspiring, where you can take something away and apply it to your own training. Don't get me wrong, the straight up demos are always mind-blowing and you can definitely learn something. However, it's cool when you see some different and/or unique training methods put on display and explained. For example, the Fields/Fields/Barth demo this year, the demos that Skiba has put on with some of his crew in the past, Byrd's squat seminar the year he was injured (2010 or 2011 if I recall correctly), and also the one year when Byrd hit up a session with some of his crew from Train Station Fitness. With each of those, not only did I see some cool shit but I also learned something as well.

Sam Vs Lilly? Epic

if we plan on strongman, beyond limits would be the place to get our stuff, that place was unreal.

Wrath and Ox should have a posedown just for kicks, idk lol

maybe an arm wrestling competition

Hall of Fame is a must

Nope, I am going to "retire" from competition right before Punani Diesel gets a chance to lift against me again...

Just to fuck with his head...cause he wont be able to sleep for another year knowing that an Old Man beat him AGAIN.

it is a sought after thing to perform a lift or compete in The Cage. so for one it will honor those who have had outstanding performances and second make a Cage record something to chase down. talked about in the same breath as other records. some that may never be broken, other that will set new standards for lifting.

God yes that woman was annoying as all get out! She made it impossible to hear the seminars even from within the cage. Maybe Animal should just buy up a bunch of booth spaces to make sure annoying vendors aren't around the cage. You could provide seating outside the cage portion then for ppl to sit and watch seminars and exhibitions, Animal Fan Stands. I know that probably is out of the question bc of how expensive spots are in the Convention Center during the Arnold, but hey... here's to wishing :)

But speaking of people outside the cage getting a better view of inside the cage... how about some display monitors or tvs or something outside the cage so if ppl can't get right up on it they can still see what's going on. And just in case some annoyingly loud booth ends up in the vicinity of the cage I say louder music with the base cranked all the way up :)


All the other suggestions I've read so far sound amazing! Can't wait!

P Diesel's idea of a 'last man standing' event for deads would be insane. That hour long block would be non-stop action. There wouldn't be any stalemate between attempts if there's 5-6 guys all pulling. Would be insane. Last man standing would get a specially made '2014 Arnold Classic Animal CAGE Deadlift Champ (x-lbs)' customized pullover Animal hoodie ... yes.

Then we can use that guy to promote 2015's event via YouTube, calling out any/all challengers to come knock him off in 2015. Imagine how enticed the elite of the elite would be to come into The Cage and knock off the reigning champ. In time, with the right publicity/promotion, I can see the pull reaching 1,000lbs and people training year-round just to beat the current number in The Cage every year. In a way, it would become it's own meet for the best of the best ...

I have one request, could there be a small board or something that lists the top 3 lifters throughout the weekend!?

I see what ur sayin but easier said then done. If we picked leaders and eventually winners, we would have to judge each participant for correct reps and form instead of just counting their reps. Create a standard for a correct press as opposed to letting fans come and showcase their skills. If that were the case many would leave w zero reps. And will inevitabley deter many from coming to participate because many or all of their reps would not count. It's just for fun for most. If u take it seriously that's awesome, come out and hammer out a billion strict reps and we will all applaud u. But what about the girl who has shit form but just wants to try, or the young kid who just started training and can squeak out one? Like I said I always felt this event is 90% for ppl to come be a part of the cage and hve sum fun saying they dd sumthin in the same arena where the freaks get it in.

Everybody wants to win. Pick a counter, have a huge board. Give a cool prize to top 3 at the end of each day. DOnt be so technical- if it clearly sucks it wont count. The counter has the final word on the lift count. end of story. How would this be any different than the charity benches done against Gaspari group? its not.

Everybody wants to win. Pick a counter, have a huge board. Give a cool prize to top 3 at the end of each day. DOnt be so technical- if it clearly sucks it wont count. The counter has the final word on the lift count. end of story. How would this be any different than the charity benches done against Gaspari group? its not.

i think itd b very diffeent then Gaspari, fuck that soft shit.

I may be spitballing here... but I vote for Pro's vs Bro's again or Bro's vs Bro's or the "Team Event" like last year. Didn't get in on the action but you can bet Im ready and waiting..

You could do any of these lifts on a pro and a "bro" level.. squat off, last man on deads, bench reps, etc.

Plus, again I know I am biased because I am one of the bro's here.. but when i got to hit the 500 for reps on deads a few years ago with everyone it made me feel that much stronger and apart of the family. Letting the other guys get involved is what it's all about. YES, I fucking love to see the elite guys lift and throw up numbers I'm still thirsting for... but to see the young guns go at it and lift and push themselves is great in it's own right.

Strongman is a must as well and I volunteer as the guinea pig and or test monkey.

Hard to put so many great lifts and also seminars into what becomes a short weekend. But ANIMAL NEVER lets us down.

Ya'll better be training.. my ass will be ready if I get the chance and if not I'll still be loading weight and cheering everyone on.

God Bless-

Honestly, I'd like to see a Pro vs Bros or Bro vs Bros event on Saturday morning for the first event to kick off the big day! Having it on Sunday I wasn't a fan of, simply because the majority of us have to fly back Sunday morning. I believe it would electrify the day/crowds having some of us regular guys perform in some events!

This will happen at RUM with best of the best judging!!! And Richard lb for lb is a mother fucker to beat!!! My experience in Cage was sick, as a lifter we love to give back to the fans and that's what the Cage is all about, they take out the judges and all the other stresses and we just get to do what we love and put on a good show. Face off are good, but full meets would take up the whole day and to me its not what the Cage is about.
