The Filthy Fifty Exercises in Pictures:
That was filthy wasn’t it? Ten exercises. Fifty each. If you’re new you did the Dirty Thirty which is also rough. This type of WOD is known as a metabolic conditioning “chipper”. Mainly because you chip away at each exercise and move on and also because at the end of it you feel like you were run through the wood chipper. I don’t program chipper WOD’s often. They have their purpose, but they are kind of an easy way out for a CrossFit workout; the “throw it all together and go” stew of hard to coach movements and impossible to remember the order combinations. They do however vary the training modality, as they tend to run longer in time duration and by bunching the reps up you are forced to execute them all with little recovery on that movement.
Advanced RX Class starts tomorrow at 10:45am after the normal Saturday 9:30am class. If you didn’t test into the Adv. Class then make sure to show up for the 9:30am class.
Reminder: CF Kids Session II will begin on Saturday 7/9 and run every Saturday through 8/13 (we will be closed July 28 through August 1 for the CrossFit Games) for a total of 5 classes. Go here for more details.
Good luck to Curtis who is attempting to summit Mt. Rainier this weekend. Be safe. Stay out danger and have fun!
