Feeling Chipper?

A chipper is a piece of equipment that grinds down a tree branch into bits of mulch.  

In CrossFit, a chipper is a workout without repeating movements that you complete just once.  The idea is you start off whole, like the tree branch, and then the workout spits you out like mulch.  Given that analogy, you would think chippers are feared by all, but for some strange reason, people love doing CrossFit chippers.  Well, here’s your chance to do CrossFit’s most famous and loved chipper, the Filthy 50.

This is a classic WOD that is often used to test someone’s work capacity on long workouts with lightweight but for high reps.

Here are some top times from the world’s best:

Chris Spealler – 13:18

Annie Thorisdottir – 15:07

Jason Khalipa – 16:00

Julie Foucher – 17:18

Check out this video of an unbroken Filthy 50.  500 total reps unbroken.
