HIGA & P Diesel in the weightroom of Glen Mills School

HIGA MONSTER visits Glen Mills School powerlifting team (Pennsylvania)

Truly an honor to visit my bro, P Diesel, at this school tonight.
I flew in from Seattle to Philadelphia & my friend Shukin drove us straight to here.

I brought some Bulky Boy stickers, shirts & air fresheners to give to some of the Powerlifters.

Glen Mills School has won multiple High School state powerlifting championships.

Check out these Old Skool YORK 100 lbs plates!
They are so small compared to the 45 lbs plate on the left.

The Powerlifting Coaches gave me a Hoodie & 2 Polo shirts.
Thanks so much guys!

After a 4.5 hour plane ride, then speaking to the kids, it was time to EAT!!

"Mahalo" to P Diesel for having me and Shukin Moderski visit Glen Mills!
It was a life-changing experience and some of these boys had come up through so rough times in their lives, but I hope I made an impact and want to see them succeed in life.

Kick ass in the High School Powerlifting Championships tomorrow, Glen Mills!!
