“Filthy 50s”
For time:
50 Box jump, 24 20 inch box
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 .75 pood
Walking Lunge, 50 steps
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 45 15 pounds
50 Back extensions
50 Wall ball shots, 20 6 pound ball
50 Burpees
50 Double unders

Last time I did Filthy 50 was in June of 2011. My time was 38:04. I did strict K2E because I couldn't kip and string them together. I had to lower the weight for the Push Press cause my intercostal muscle was strained the day before during "Nate."

  1. Jumping Pull ups done in 2 sets
  2. KB Swings done in 3 sets
  3. Was able to kip my K2E and string them together for the first time
  4. Wall Balls were complete in 3 sets
  5. Burpees I did not break once, did them straight through. Albeit very slow but I never took a moment to rest. 
  6. Did all 50 double unders straight, unbroken. 
Here is my shitty mid 50 burpees face. I love it!

I think my eating clean really help me put on the intensity for this WOD. Not really sure where I got the energy to dig deep and pull out some many reps at one time per set. I even surprised myself. Like during the wall ball, I would get to 10 reps and think should I stop and rest... No, just a few more, then a few more... It was crazy. 

Well the outcome of doing 50 burpees straight, taking a calculated 30 sec rest before going into my Double Unders, was that my post wod state was a dire one. My face went completely numb and I was dizzy for about 40 mins after calling time. I couldn't sit up, but had to lay on my back not being able to feel my lips, not unclench my jaw. It was pretty trippy. 

It feels good to know that I can take myself to that edge of intensity.

Super happy.
