I hear it is on the slate this year as the last event of The Cage. Sunday afternoon.

Who wants to do battle for honor alone, within the chain link arena?

Peace, G

This event was insane to start off. I mean tark and rob going head to head, balls out, faces red gushing with sweat it was nuts. Then the bench, then the deadlift! With the late additions haha. It was so awesome and what a way to end another amazing weekend. Thanks to you guys that competed!

Tough to do, but I was willing to step up when G Diesel asked me to do Pros vs Bros deadlifts.
Especially after I deadlifted on Friday.

But that's what makes The Cage unique...LIFT AT ALL COSTS!
Hat's off to my boy, Chris Roth. He is a beast that I have known for years and knew he was gonna be tough in the Deadlift.

Great job boys! That 500 sq for reps was awesome, balls out with nothing left in the tank you guys killed it.

I'm down for it next year if there are any challengers right now :) It's a year away but I am in. I'm recovering from shoulder surgery at the moment but if there are any 198 lifters open for a challenges lets do it.

Stats :198 lifter, 525sq (sleeves), 315 b, 560d. We can do reps or max weight, let me know!

Thank you so much for this opportunity. To be able share the "stage" with my brothers and some of the strongest guys in the world is an honor. No other company out there allows you to be a part of the family, from just interning to the ABC to the Pros vs Bros. Animal is more than just a brand or a product, it goes deeper than any of that. I'm grateful to be a part of this family. I'll gladly step up anytime. Salute.
