Extra Filthy

IMG_3150

So last night I used this blog to rant about burpees and how much I hate them and wish them a bloody death. Yes it is true that I am not the only one in the world that hates burpees. I actually found that there are places on the web and social media that are dedicated to the hatred of burpees. To these sites: You are my hero!

Enough of those crazy thought! Tonight I got to do a partner version of my favorite workout. You know the “Filthy Fifty” workout? It’s where you take basic crossfit movements and do 50 reps of each with a time cap. Our time cap is 35 minutes.

Tonight we made it a partner WOD and I got to do it with my crossfit partner in crime, Mike. The workout was the following:

‘Extra Filthy’:
For time: (Teams of 2)
100 Box jump 24/20″
100 Jumping pull-ups
100 KBS – 24/16kg
100 Lunge steps – 25/leg
100 Knees to elbows
100 Push press – 45/35lbs
100 KBS – 24/16kg
100 Wall balls – 20/14
100 Burpees
100 Double unders *200 Singles
Note from the Coach;
1) Time cap 40:00
2) Pairs of two work together; Repetitions MUST be broken down 25/25/25/25

Now this may look crazy to those who never tried it but the trick to this sort of workout is to never stop moving. If you need a break then stop and take a breath and jump back on it.

We came out of the gate really hot on this one. We killed it until we got to the second round of kettlebell swings(KBS). We struggled from there. Mike was getting tired. When we got to the wall balls we started to slow down. We managed to make it to the burpees but even I was struggling to get those 25 reps in.

We managed to end the workout at 864. I am proud of the 864 and I know that we earned that. I can’t wait to do this workout again with Mike. Next time we will finish it.
