Filthy Fifty

Filthy Fifty is a classic Crossfit workout which usually welcomes beginners into the intense world of chippers. To put some variety into your plan, try doing the reverse version as well.

People love this workout – and I don’t know why. It is chaos and just reps for reps’ sake. Fifty reps of ten different movements with no real flow, design, or purpose other than to give you a highly overstated score. Having a 21:03 “Filthy Fifty” time means nothing when there is little quality control over movement standards. I’ve seen your wall balls and your knees to elbow, Alfred, so your “new PR” is a lie.http://breakingmuscle.com/crossfit/the-3-best-and-3-worst-crossfit-workouts

It’s definitely not for everyone. It is very brutal one. If you are very curious about this WOD, you can try and see if it’s great for you or not.
