    20:24 scaled to Dirty Thirty. And scaled within some of the movements. Today was my first dance with this WOD. Now that I know the steps, I am ready to try the full fifty.

  • Mackenzie

    Funday Friday ? yup!! 26:00 on this one. didn’t realize I was using the 45 # bar until riggs told me… halfway through the good mornings…

    See everyone at the grill out tonight

  • JohnB

    28:34 Rx’d, felt pretty solid (except for Burpees, YAY BURPEES) 23 seconds slower than last time and about a minute off PR…I need to address this, I really need to mentally/physically attack the burpees, they defeat me everytime

    Will try to come tonight but worried about traffic and boys coming with me…

  • Iris

    WOD: 37:13 – 50 reps
    V-ups vs K2E
    Push press 45 lbs (thanks Riggs for letting me know I was using the wrong bar when I was at rep #45 – pay more attention next time, ha ha!!)
    15 lb wall ball
    Single unders

    As I was scanning the room in fear that I would need to pray to the orange bucket I was also praying Chef would call time – but apparently “he didn’t have the heart to stop me”… Thanks I think? This is my 3rd run at FF and first time I finished. Last 2 times I had time called during the burpees. I think finishing is within reach – lost a lot of time with push presses since I could only do 3 or 4 at a time by the end.

    Great send-off workout as we head to beach for 2 weeks. Will miss you all!!

  • Mike C

    Dirty Thirty: 26:55.

    Knees to Elbows was more like knees to arm pits. Need to work on this.

    Shout out to my lovely wife who finished Filthy Fifty for the first time. Yeah!

  • Jeff G

    90 day anniversary with rubicon today, and what better way to celebrate than with a filthy fifty!! Went for the full Rx 50 and finished in 37:02, thanks for not cutting me off Chef. Had to scale k2e to high knees after 30 and did 150 singles – du’s still not there yet – aargh – but psyched I gutted through this

    Will try to make the cookout, but have a great weekend if I miss you all

  • MattB

    WOD: 34:51. Filthy Fifty, with 150 singles subbed at the end. My D/Us are good when I’m fresh…not as desirable when I’m exhausted!

    I can not yet confirm or deny whether bright pink shirts improve workout times…

    Nice work 0700 – great way to close out the week!

    Filthy Fitty: 20:09 Rxd (good mornings)

    This is a 2 min PR for me. I was really hoping to break the 20 min mark but the burpees proved to be the biggest hurdle. (16:30 start of burps, 3 mins later I was starting DUs) Next time, I will break 20 mins!! :)

    Good job everyone in the 7am class, a lot of folks battling today. Inspiring to watch!!

  • Jamie

    20:47 for the 25 test drive. Feel a little bit like a sissy watching everyone else crush it at 30 and 50. Next time it’s 50.

    Just hit 6 months at the box last week. Thanks Chef and all of Team Rubicon.

  • Jack W.

    (34:11 last time)

    wow. AND no one died!

  • Rachel

    First time doing this one. Filthy Fifty 27:22 (singles) I still don’t have double unders well enough to have completed 50 as the slap in your face last movement. Next time I will RX the whole thing.

    Dessert: After I could breath I did complete 15 DU’s. :)

    A Little Knowledge: good read

  • JohnB

    Way to crush it for the first time attempt!…you burpee ninjas(you, Ryan, Linda, Kia…) scare me, make me feel old and slow :)

  • JD

    27:21 for this round of Filthy Fifty. A 9 second PR. Was shooting for sub 25 but got slowed down on the K2E, Wall Balls, and burpees. I did singles vs double unders too.

  • Amy

    Filthy Fifty: 25:49 this was the first time I have done this WOD. My K2E where more like knees to almost elbows and I did single unders because my doubles aren’t there yet. I managed to do push press and good mornings unbroken which helped me a great deal because I struggled in the burpees :)

  • Aaron L

    Filthy Fifty: 32:58 rx’d. First time I could get through the DU’s at the end, but gotta stop smoking so much weed. Sub 25 next time!

  • Kendra

    My first Filthy 50 and what a slog it was.

    39:40, mostly rx’d.

    20″ box jump, 35# KB swing, K2E — not all were truly legit :(, 45# PP, Wall Balls were 20# slamball to 8′ line. Also did single unders instead of DUs.

    It took forever, but I was glad to finish. Thanks for the encouragement from the fellow noon hour WODers!

  • Tiffany

    My wod today wasn’t the same without yall! Have fun at the cook out! I’ll be there in spirit :)

  • Mark T

    35:59 as RXd

  • Mike F

    35:55 rx’d – knees to elbows killed my time but were all done to form.

    Great work this morning 7am’ers!

  • Mark T

    Oops with 2 pood

  • Cyrus

    31:15 Rx’d

  • Kia

    Filthy 50: 25:26 Rx’d

    This was a beast of a workout. The only way to conquer was to find my INNER-BITCH! 😉 It worked out pretty well. The K2E’s and Burpees were my hurdles but I kept my goal of doing no less than 6 reps. Used the 20# ball for wallballs that wasn’t too fun. And did G’mornings instead of Back Ext.

    Finally got a chance to make it the Friday Grill’n’Chill and I had a blast!! Me and Bj couldn’t have asked for a better group of people. You all inspire and motivate us every single day to be better inside and out and we thank and love you all!! Have a Great Weekend! :)
