Filthy 50 - fun workout :/

Muti-tasking right now... in a group project meeting and quietly recovering from my workout today (modified).

Today I did the Filthy 50, a CrossFit WOD.

For time:
50 Box jump, 24 inch box
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood
Walking Lunge, 50 steps
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 45 pounds
50 Back extensions
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
50 Burpees
50 Double unders

If you haven't already, try it out! It's definitely a mind over matter workout. Back extensions which I thought would be one of the easier exercises ended up being one of the more difficult ones. My lower back definitely needs some strengthening.

Different ways to modify could be to do 25 reps rather than 50, lowering the box jump height, lighter weights, jump roping rather than double unders...

Anyone have any other suggestions for fun workouts or exercises?
