The F!@#-Me Forty Seven, and a birthday present for my readers

You may remember that a couple weeks ago I decided it would be a good idea to celebrate my birthday by doing the following workout for time:

47 box jumps (18" box)
47 pull-ups
47 kettlebell swings (16 kg)
47 Bulgarian split squats on each leg (94 total)
47 dumbbell push presses (15's)
47 hanging leg raises
47 stability ball rollouts
47 burpees
47 tuck jumps

So, that's what I did. Except I didn't go all out the way I might've done if I hadn't just about killed myself yesterday, and if I wasn't planning to do my final (for now) ETK Rite of Passage heavy day workout tomorrow. I took about 37 minutes to get through it. The hanging leg raises were really hard after the pullups, and the tuck jumps were really hard after the burpees. I mean, I knew they would be and I planned it that way ... but all the same it was hard. Anyway, not a stellar performance but I really needed a lighter day today, not that this was lighter exactly.

And now for the present:

Let the vulgar comments ensue!
