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.
- 50 Box Jumps – 12” Box

- 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!!!

Yeah!!! 50 of anything is hard. 50 of lots of things… well that just plain ole sucks.
Whew! That does look tough!!! Good job for pushing through the pain (and tears).
Loved the workout. I mean, I hated it when it was happening, but loved that we survived. Why are the burpees so hard?!?!
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. 😉
Tough workout; GREAT job!!!
