Jennifer, a chipper is a workout comprising a series of different drills that you go through only once. One recent example is the filthy fifty that seems to be coming round quite regularly these days. Basically in one end and out the other, just like a wood chipper.

Not sure where the idea came from but GymJones used breathing ladders quite a lot late last year and early this year. Basic idea is do one rep, take one breath, do two reps, two breaths etc ...

For more info and thoughts on them try these two links

the chipper usually follow one of several rep schemes:
same # of reps for all exercises ie 50,50, 50, 50
pyramids ie 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10
increasing reps 10,20, .....80, 90
decreasing reps 100, 90, ......, 20, 10
most chippers contain a minimum of 3 exercises or movements up to a maximum of 10
plan on spending a minimum of 30 to 60 minutes completing a chipper
