"The Higa Monsters" training crew. Best workout partners I could ever have!
My friend/training partner Laurion Burchal came up with a great idea for us to have a get together for dinner. He and Arlene also thought that we should have a little grip contest and provide prizes for the winners!
We had a great time and have decided to make this an annual event in the summer. I will also try to organize having one at my house in the Fall.
Mahalo to Cedar River BBQ in Renton, WA for letting us eat some great food and lift inside of their restaurant!
Have a great day!
