Details aren't finalized yet but we will have a Pros vs. Bros event on Sunday, 3/2 @ 2:30pm at The Cage. The event will be comprised of diverse members of the Animal Crew (athletes & staff) including Wrath, P Diesel, J Wong, Ibn Mahama, G Diesel and Enforcer. We will then add several members from the FORVM in a 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.

If you're interested in competing in our 2014 edition of Pros vs. Bros, add your name and the lift you'd like to compete in here. Please be aware that slots will be limited. Get your entries in sooner, rather than later!

Weights that will be used for the competition:
Bench for reps @ 225
Squats for reps @ 315
Deads for reps @ 315

Date: Sunday, 3/2/13 at 2:30pm
Location; The CAGE, Booth #419

I am excited to watch this, unfortunatly after the weight loss my strength isn't where it needs to be. Although if you don't get enough and need someone I would always sub in for deads.

This is one of my favorite moments of the cage weekend. The loyal fans getting to interact with the animal family in tests of their strength and determination. Can't wait for this yet once again

Can't believe there isn't more interest in this. This was one of the highlights of the Cage last year seeing members Animal legion battling it out with fellow Animal Pros.

Actually haven't been able to go crazy on squats because of the shoulder, the external rotation and holding the bar bothers it although I squatted with Nix0r and Phil on Sunday

Good question--last year we had 225 for bench, 315 for squats and deads. I believe it will be the same but am confirming now.

315 for max reps on squats is going to kill me.

One of you guys make sure to bring an oxygen tank!

The last time I did something like this was 8 months ago when I was training reps very often!

I think Gunjak is a worthy opponent for J Wong. Where is that big bastard?

I'm DEFINITELY in for the DL, and maybe even the squat as well! Just need a time and a day-doing the CF games open workout Friday night, though. I'll bail on that if it conflicts with this.

Can we touch-and-go on DL? Can I pull sumo? It's my preferred stance.

Ugh. I need to learn to read! I'll be on my way back home on Sunday! Can I lift early?

I ended up squatting against G-Six and it was an amazing experience. I felt like complete crap going into this event, but the atmosphere of the cage makes all of that go out the window. It was honestly more of a "rush" for myself than I have ever received at a powerlifting meet. I hope to be able to lift again in the cage next year..this was definitely one of the most fun things I have ever done.
