CrossFit Day 25 …. Filthy Fifty

Yes, the damn awesome Filthy Fifty showed up on the white board again.  To be honest, I didn’t even look at all the exercises on the list, just helped get the equipment out and started with the buzzer. 

Filthy Fifty

  • 50 Box Jumps – 12” Box
  • 50 Jumping Pull-ups
  • 50 Kettelbell Swings – 35/26 – 35# for me
  • 50 Walking Lunges
  • 50 Knees to Elbows/Chest
  • 50 Push Press 45/33
  • 50 Supermans
  • 50 Wall Balls – 10#
  • 50 Burpees
  • 50 DU/100 Single Ropes

This workout was hard for me.  I’m not very strong in my upper body the weight bar shows up for anything, I groan internally.  I know I’m there because I WANT and NEED to be stronger but it still sucks isn’t fun.

The box jumps & jumping pull-ups were good.  The kettlebell swings were a hard push for 50 with the 35# bell.

Walking lunges & knees to chest were okay but my hands take a beating on the hanging “knees to chest”.  Plus, if I’m honest, I’m really a knees to hip type girl too.  The photo below shows me and my run friends on the “knees to chest” move.  I’m in the green socks.  The photos is a bit blurry cuz we are so amazing.  And fast.  And amazing.  And did I mention fast?

Push presses are definitely one of my weakness.  I did 10 with the 45# bar and then Julie M (pink top above) rescued me and traded me for the 33# bar.  SO.MUCH.BETTER but still super hard.  Here is a group of my run friends and I “push pressing” on a different day (I’m in the pink socks).

Supermans & wall balls done, even with my wobbly arms from the push presses. Then I got to the stupid  burpees.  OUCH!  I was just out of steam.  So tired.  No energy.  I may have even leaked a tear or two.  Yes, I still “hate” burpees.  And I agree with the lady below, I think this would curb my PSL craving IMMEDIATELY!!

I finished strong with 100 single rope jumps.  34 minutes & 45 seconds.  Done. Done.  DONE!!!

  1. Ugh, burpees! I don’t do CrossFit but I work out with my trainer. He had us doing 60 kettlebell swings this morning. Six minutes of rowing. Six and its multiples were the name of the game today. Hard workout but good! I also like it best when it’s over. 😉
