Strongman workout at Powerhouse Gym of Honolulu (11/30/09)

The shirt on Tony Le'iato's back says it all.

Tony Le'iato, me, Andy Ramos & Dave Silva. (left to right) Damn, were we sweating or what? We totally shocked our bodies with a bad ass workout and was ready to eat.

Lunch at Young's Fish Market. Roasted turkey tails, kalua pig, laulau, sweet potatoe, pipi kaula, scoops of rice, mac salad, beef stew bowl, squid luau and a large Fruit Punch. "ONO!"

Higa about to throw down some Hawaiian food!

This morning I met up with my friends Andy "THE HAWAIIAN HULK" Ramos, and legendary Hawai'i powerlifting champion Tony Le'iato at Powerhouse Gym.
Tony has also won the Hawaii's Strongest Man 2-times.

We met at 8:30am and had the most BRUTAL workout that I have ever experienced in a long time.

Plus, IMO it was so hot and humid in that back part of the gym. Living in Seattle has made me feel like 74 degrees is sticky hot to me. My legs were like jello after this workout.

Afterwards, we ate some mean post-workout grindz at "Young's Fish Market" off of Dillingham Blvd. KILLER HAWAIIAN FOOD THEY SERVE OVER THERE!

Flying back to Seattle tomorrow...its been a great trip! A hui hou!
