The Filthy Fifty

I haven't been able to get this one out of my head since Deb mentioned it on Sandi's blog a couple days ago.

I had to modify some to make it appropriate for my size, gender, fitness level, and availability of equipment, but I did it:

50 18" box jumps (instead of 24")
50 band-assisted pullups (instead of jumping)
50 KB swings with a 12 kg bell (instead of 16 kg)
50 walking lunges
50 hanging leg raises (instead of knees-to-elbows, which I'm too feeble to do; legs were pretty damn bent toward the end, but at least my knees were right up in my armpits and I wasn't swinging wildly)
50 BB push presses with 35 lbs (instead of 45)
50 SB back extensions (instead of regular back extensions)
50 flip & squats with an 8 kg bell (instead of wall ball shots with a 20 lb ball, which would be hell on the drywall)
50 squat thrust pushups (instead of burpee pushups)
50 airborne jumps (instead of double unders, because I tend to trip over myself when I jump rope)

I got it done in a little less than 40 minutes. Not bad for an old lady.
