The last workout of 2011 with HIGA MONSTER and "MANA BARBELL" (Honolulu, HI)

I was fortunate to be invited to the blessing of "Mana Barbell"in Honolulu today.

Larry Wassman, HIGA MONSTER & Kamuela Wassman.

3 of the 5 owners Jon Bareng, Darren Matsumoto & Justin Pascual.

A big mahalo to Mana Barbell for letting me workout with them today!  Best of luck to you all because you guys have a solid squad of Powerlifters that support each other!  It was an honor to be a part of your gym's blessing today!

Happy New Year!

Pa'ina at Bryce's house w/HIGA MONSTER (Ewa Beach, HI)

Stopped by braddah Bryce Takaki's house tonight to watch the UFC with my friends, Jessie Yokoyama, Bryce & Joe Gulisao.

Then Bryce busted out his HIGA MONSTER signature series shirt he bought on Black Friday while Joe imitated "American Gothic" with da Garden Weasel.  LMAO

Always good to see my boys from Hilo!  Happy New Year to you all!

Burying a 710.7 lbs squat for a new Washington state record!

My friends from Animal Pak came to support me, Eddie & Chris.

Casey from Trapper's Sushi came to the contest to cheer me on.  Thanks bro!

I was wearing the Bulky Boy beach towel to help keep me warm in b/w attempts.

My first 2 awards that I won from tonight...

But this is the BEST award of them all!  Raw baby!  No suits or knee wraps!

I ended up squatting 710.7 lbs, bench pressing 429.7 lbs and deadlifting 727.5 lbs for a total of 1867.9 lbs.  I broke 3 Washington state records in the squat, deadlift and the total for my weight class.
Not bad for a 40 year old BULKY BOY.  LOL

"Mahalo nui loa" to my wife Michelle & daughters Kaiea and Kalani, my mother in law Eloise, Allen Velasco of Imperial CrossFit, PJ Couvillion, Jaysin Reyna & Casey from Trapper's Sushi, Tim Nagy, Ken & Caleb Ralston of BelieveMedia, Kristyn Whisman, Pete Marcoff, Zack McCarley, Eddie McLaughlin and Chris Gumm for driving all the way to Fife to cheer me on and sit all that time at a Powerlifting meet.

And especially to my Animal Pak brother, 21 year old Ben Seath for lighting a fire under my ass so that I could break 3 of his Washington state records in the Raw Division.  "NEXT!"
