Filthy Fifty and Dead Hangs

Friday, 3/25/2011

Ah, the “Filthy Fifty”… this brings back some bad, bad memories… the last time I did this WOD, I couldn’t do double-unders, knees to elbows, and I pretty much sucked wind the entire time. I think that I even asked Robin if I could do more than 45# on the push presses b/c “Trevor said to”. Ha.

This time around was much different. Again, here’s what the “Filthy Fifty” is:

  • 50 Box jumps
  • 50 Jumping pull-ups
  • 50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood
  • 50 Walking Lunges (50 steps)
  • 50 Knees to elbows
  • 50 Push press, 45 pounds
  • 50 Back extensions
  • 50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
  • 50 Burpees
  • 50 Double unders

My time this time around was 29:42; ~7 minutes better than last time and most importantly [to me], UNDER 30 minutes!! The big difference here from last time was that I can now do double-unders and for some reason, the K2E’s just clicked and was able to get the rhythm. Don’t get me wrong.. this is a miserable 30 minutes. The burpees were by far the worst. They felt like they’d never be over.

Tonight’s WOD was FUN! It was:


  • 5 strict pull ups
  • 7 strict press @ 95#
  • 15 air squats

This took me 4:44, WAY less time than I thought it would. So, thanks, Fio! I guess those extensive warm-ups really DO help!
