15 for Pain Lab, 2 for a tandem bicycle ride
Def Leppard reached out to me awhile back wondering if I would bring Pain Lab out to Midoriyama. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and obliged to his request. Midoriyama has a large space and also a few extra hidden toys YHC could not possibly fit in his “Prius”, like large Folsom truck tires. Knowing the amount of HIM that would post I knew the weinke had to be large enough to accommodate all that showed up. This was by far the largest Pain Lab group YHC has ever had and I believe it was enjoyed by all.
I pre-blasted on the Twitter that there would be no running as this is a low to no impact workout. As I arrived early to setup, I saw some PAX getting some EC running in. I laughed as they ran by as these guys probably thought this would be an easy workout. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
As the PAX began to arrive, the amount of kettlebells grew. YHC had the battle rope present and decided to do something fun. Lined the kettlebells up and threaded the battle rope through them all. Mind you the rope is 50ft in length. Yes, we will be group carrying this for a hot minute.
No FNG’s, so quick disclaimer

Alright, let’s grab the kettlebell rope and other misc toys (sledge hammer, slam ball, large speaker, block) and fellowship mosey to the small soccer field.
Wait, what’s this? We have a sudden walk up by a young Gentleman asking what we are doing. “Large group workout, wanna join us?” Young guy, “I would but I have a bum knee” (is this Medicine Woman’s cousin??). “Bum knee? Then you came to the right workout today! Low to No Impact so cmon!” FNG Erick Silva joined us. FYI, EH’ng on the fly is an awesome high. Disclaimer with FNG as we finished our mosey.
***This is Pain Lab so loud music was present. Today’s tracks: Drum and Bass playlist or “Twerking” music as most, if not all PAX, referred to it as.

Def Leppard took us out
By now you should realize that nothing in this life is easy. While something may appear easy from the outside, you often find it is not. The struggle is real! Thank you to everyone that came out this evening and pushed hard through it. The reward is much greater than the pain. Welcome again FNG Erick Silva “Soccer Arms”. It was a pleasure meeting you and hope to see you out here often!
