Details aren't finalized yet but we will have a Pros vs. Bros event on Sunday, 3/6 @ 3:00pm at The Cage. The event will be comprised of diverse members of the Animal Crew (athletes & staff) 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 2016 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!

Keep in mind we may not be able to accommodate everyone. If there is someone specific you'd like to lift against feel free to call them out.

No there won't be and never will be. Because everyone from corporate to sponsored athletes to forvm members all make it that way by discussing it before hand in detail and adding to it from all of their various experiences. That is animal. Ull learn that the more u are around.

And yes ur correct I'm concerned with details of this event and every other one, as we all are, every year. Because more than anything I'm a fan of strength athletics and the athletes that will represent all of us by being permitted to lift in the cage.

I have nowhere near the numbers to lift in this event, but I know a lot of fellow Forvm members do. I don't know what you have planned video wise, but I'd love to see a whole chapter on the Bros Vs. Pros lifting. This sort of event is what strives me to want to lift more.

P

After serving many years working in The Cage, and being a victim of this myself, I agree with this. Full reps with a down command. Some guys get caught up in the moment and reps starts to get slack jawed. Doesn't need to be anything formal, but someone within the Cage just saying 'down' isn't too hard to implement.

Josh is a lil Monster, just hitting 10x his BW in his last raw meet at just 22 yrs old..... Id love to see one of you Pros out there going head to head with him either in the squat or deadlift. I've seen his rep capacity and even think he can go rep for rep with the ANT...... Where are you Mr. Hawthorne?

I see we have some new forum members getting in on the action, First off welcome to the Animal Family rockyroadgym and JoshMarosi! A lot if us have been around here a long time so I give you props for the call outs on the bros vs. pros, I guess it will be up to them to accept, however if they don't another way will be to come to the National ABC on Sat night and show what you got. Just giving you the heads up, since your membership to the forum is new. Again welcome the to fam, looking forward to seeing everyone soon! As for the call outs, well Give em Hell!

Also typically, the pro's that are doing a lift in the cage (i.e. the Ant) don't usually compete in the Pro v Bro competition. Would be tough to max out 2 days in a row

http://forum.animalpak.com/showthread.php?44298-National-ABC-Ticket-now-Live

This is where you can find out about grabbing a ticket to train... It's free, but you have to get a "ticket confirmation" to get in.... They shut down the Powerhouse Gym (formerly Metro Fitness) on Saturday night and ONLY Animal folks with a ticket confirmation can get it (checked at the door)....

If you guys are able to get there for Sat night, I highly suggest grabbing a ticket.... At the ABC, you can meet and greet, train with and shoot the shit with athletes and the rest of us....lol It's a great time, great atmosphere and definitely nothing like you've ever seen before (and then we will be able to get one in the works for Rocky Road...lol) It's just what we do!! NOTHING matches the NATIONAL ABC though....

Glad to see that you guys made it to The Forvm!! You'll find your way around, meet great people, and then you will be able to see why we are so different from everyone else... It's about support, brotherhood, family, inspiration, motivation, and perseverance... Welcome to our "humble" abode... :)

If you have any questions, just message me...

I got to see most of the PvB except for Enforcer, JMass, and Higa (which I am not happy about missing) but I did get to hear it from the Shop side!!! I hope someone grabbed some video!!

I want to say that I am so proud of our ladies and their pulls in the event... It is SO inspiring to see young ladies embracing their strength. I know that those that are involved in the lifestyle see it as "normal" but as an educator of young minds, we as ladies are conditioned to be the weaker sex... Well, times they are a changin' and I want my students to embrace their strength and use it to empower themselves toward independence... I know that wasn't the goal that they set forth to achieve, but that's what I want women to take from it!

All of the ladies kick ass and I can't wait to see your progression in this crazy world!!! I especially want to metion Beth, Kelly, and Amanda... You all did a great job on Sunday!! You are setting the bar high... Keep inspiring!!
