HIGA MONSTER wins at "RAB Fitness Summer Strength Wars" powerlifting contest (Kennewick, WA)

HIGA trying to pull 733 lbs off the floor...

Saw this braddah wearing his Bulky Boy island chain hat.
He wore it the entire day at the contest!  Thanks for reppin the brand!

Colby, Jake, Brandon & me were representing Maple Valley, Washington!
These 3 guys workout at Thrive Community Fitness here by my house.

Me & Jason Payne won Best Lifters for Raw & Classic Raw.
Scored a box of supplements & $100 cash.

I was also able to win the Best Masters Lifter.
Scored another box of supps and another $100 cash.

This guy Chris had the most EPIC beard of all the competitors!!
Chris is from Walla Walla.

After a very long day, I was fortunate to win both the Open Men Raw and Masters (40-44) Men Raw 308.5 lbs class.

I broke 4 American records in the Masters 40-44 age group: 
711 lbs squat, 441 lbs bench press, 711 lbs deadlift and a 1863 lbs Total.

The 711 lbs deadlift is also a new Washington state record for the Open Men Raw 308.5 lbs class.

These are not the numbers I was shooting for at this contest, but its truly an honor to break the American records in my Masters weight class.

Thanks to family & friends who helped me with the preparation of this contest.  And also to Bulky Boy Clothing for all the kokua!
