Background: "Filthy Fifty" is a popular CrossFit chipper-style benchmark WOD that has been posted on the CrossFit Main Site many times since its first appearance in 2005, but never (as of 2017) actually with the name "Filthy Fifty." That name came from the CrossFit community and is now well known among CrossFit athletes and gyms.

Fun fact: In a 2007 post in the CrossFit Forum about "Filthy Fifty," one user pointed out that the workout "is also sometimes known as "Father's Day 500," for its 500 total reps and the fact that it first appeared on the Main Site on Father's Day, Sunday, June 19, 2005 (050619).
