HIGA MONSTER wins at the "USAPL Fife Holiday Classic" (Fife, WA)

Me BURYING my 2nd attempt squat of 335 kilos/738.5 lbs.

Trying to stay warm with my Bulky Boy beach towel & a Lava-lava.

Bull Stewart & Todd Christensen informed me that I can possibly break the American Record in the squat, so I told them that I would try to break it.

Trying to bury this 340 kilos/749.5 lbs squat...

Success!  I broke the American Record for Masters (40-44 yrs) with 749.5 lbs.
The previous record was 744 lbs by Beau Moore in 2008.

Had to snap a pic with my old Gateway Athletic Club friends after breaking the record!
I am sure Willie Austin was smiling down on us.  :)

Trying to get psyched for Deadlifts.

Opening attempt deadlift of 325 kilos/716.5 lbs

My crew from Imperial CrossFit came to support me!
And a special apperance by Rocco Liogghio!


Had to do my Drug Test for steroids...since I broke the American Record.

I was able to win the Raw Open & Masters Men classes.
And got the Best Lifter for Raw Open & Masters Men.

Post contest all you can eat dinner at Mika Japanese Buffet!

Medium-rare Prime Rib was on my 4th plate at the buffet.
Just trying to get more BULKY!

Thank you to all my family & friends who came to support me today!  Love you all!
And a special thank you to Bulky Boy and Animal Pak for your support!
