AO: Meathouse

When: 03/21/2023

QIC: Dinghy

PAX (6): Angus, BallBoy, Flip Flop (that's singular), McCracken, Stroller


Meathouse is generally intended as a full body, near 0.0 workout. YHC worked this am to adhere to that…..mostly. The good news is that Meathouse as many options, and the scary stairway adds much a whole new dynamic if you’re wearing a ruck. So, with a veteran crew requiring just a short preamble, off we went…..


10 each of the following: Weedpickers, Hillbillies

15 Moroccan Night Clubs (was going to need that)

Carry blocks to the bottom of the stairwell

The Thang:

  1. Tabata A – alternating Goblet Squats and Stiff Leg Deadlifts, doing 15 during active period, continue into rest period if you don’t get your 15
  2. 11’s (with a twist) – At bottom of the stairs, conduct 10 bent rows. Go to the top of the steps, where it gets interesting. Do 1 Carolina DryDock PLUS 2 Monkey Humpers (i.e., DryHumps). Return down for 2 rows, up for 2 DD / 4 MH. Continue on through to 1 Bent Row, and then 10 DD’s / 20 MH’s. Imperial Walker for the 6
  3. Tabata B – alternating curls and overhead presses, doing 12 minimum during the active period, continue into rest period if you don’t get them. Carry blocks back to the flag
  4. 11’s with Sumo Squats and Wall Dips. Drop the rucks for…..
  5. Bloody Mary: Every cycle starts and ends with 10 pickle pounders and 10 second hold low plank. Individual cycles include 15 Gas Pumpers, 15 American Hammers, 15 Flutter Kicks, 15 LBC’s. Completed the last cycle with LBC’s, got through 5 Pickle Pounders and that was time!


  1. April 21st, be ready for the 12 hours of beatdowns CSAUP at The Rubicon. Will start at 8 PM, complete at 8 AM Saturday. We will need folks to run (and attend) beatdowns every hour on the hour (normal 45 minutes BD’s). See Slack for details from Stroller.
  2. Prayers up for Flo as he travels to/from difficult meetings; Also, praises for the prayers done on behalf of YHC – it’s definitely uplifting and keeping the spirits high!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It was neat to get an opportunity to Q at the Meathouse, as there was an open spot. Many other AO’s are full up, but Meathouse (and Bridge) need to keep those Q entries coming. Let’s keep that thing Q sheet full, here and at all the other AO’s!
