The Cage: "Brotherhood" Chapter II

What makes Animal and our mission different from that vast sea of supplement companies out there? We believe the first step is to shift focus away from ourselves. Though we work The Cage from the moment the first piece of flooring goes down to the last person we speak to at the end of the expo, we know the event is not about us. Though many come to see a spectacle -- elite lifters putting it all on the line and performing incredible feats of strength -- we ultimately know Animal is not about them either. It never was. We know The Cage is about that person who walks into The Cage. Whether it's your first time or you've been coming for over a decade, we are there to educate you. To inspire you. To motivate you to become better than you are, better than you want to be today. That's our goal, that's our mission. When you step foot into our world, whether at the National ABC Event, The CAGE or even our website, Animalpak.com, we want you to feel like you are part of the family. Though we are all different, though we all come from different places, we want Animal to be that table where there's an open chair waiting for you. Come in. Sit down. Make yourself at home.

675 lb Raw Deadlift @ 242 & 19 Years Old

Watch young Lexington Plummer in his recent training session.

"Birthday was yesterday and now it's back to training. Felt like I could have pulled something crazy like 771 / 350 kg. It'll have to wait until the meet since I found one an hour away from me."

Kevin OAK 801 Lb Squat Raw w/Wraps @231 lbs RPS HeatWave Training


Finally played with 800 lbs. Speed felt great coming out of the hole. The last 2 sets I wrapped my knees much tighter than usually and I should've adjusted by pushing into the wraps harder so I could hit depth. Both sets ended up at about parallel. I just need to be more cognizant of that next weekend on the platform. Besides that it felt great. I thought I had another 25 lbs in me. I just need to sink 800 on the platform for the time being.

Tom Kallas Breaks All Time Raw Wrapped Record Squat! 677 @ 165!!!

Past weekend competed at WUAP Nationals in Peoria, IL. Was able to break previous all time world record of 672.2 squat with wraps in 165lb class. I squatted 677.7 (307.5kg) at 165lbs (75kg). Can't thank my team
enough for support for this meet.

BEAST: 855lb squat for 2 reps PR

"855 for 2 reps in prep for USPA Nationals 2014. 308lb Single ply Double PR. We have planned and now things are coming together. Strongest I have ever felt. Instead of going for a heavy single on my last heavy day, i backed it down from 870-880 for 1 to 855 for 2 which proved to be better for my confidence. I again study these videos like football tapes lol and my depth finder needs to drag alittle lower. Even though the 1st one was on target, the 2nd was questionable. Corrections will be made. This is why taping my videos for me is important.
