Lower Body Blues

AO: Meathouse

When: 02/28/2023

QIC: Popper

PAX (8): Angus, BallBoy, Boomer, McCracken, Meatball, Mid-riff, Saint2O


YHC has been doing a lot of 0.0’s lately due to persistent plantar fasciitis and the advice of a podiatrist to lay off the running & jumping during treatment. The Meathouse is a great place for a 0.0 beatdown, with the ruck and coupon offering a good challenge even within a small radius. Friends don’t let friends skip leg day, and YHC dialed up a good program with lots of variety for the lower body.


Weed picker, Windmill, Imperial Walker, slow Butt Kickers, Michael Phelps in cadence.

The Thang:

Blues music is YHC’s happy place. Today’s program was six sets of exercises, each lasting the duration of a blues original and its cover that made the song famous. PAX were instructed to focus on form over speed and over finishing all reps within the time limit, told to take rests as they needed them, and to do the reps in whatever order or combination felt best.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It’s always a pleasure to lead, even in my temporarily restricted capacity. Can’t wait to have my full range of exercises back and available to me. Until then, will continue kicking my own butt and any others who will join me with these 0.0 beatdowns.
