Patrick, thanks. 1 rep being touching both plates adds to it. Is it still 25 with each arm for the 1 arm C&Press, or 50 with each?

DB C&P is 25 reps with each arm in whatever split works for you.

(Sorry for the delayed response- I did not see this question until today.)

Re: The 300 workout
I saw guys doing this workout when I got back from Iraq. To me it's like another routine with a name and a time standard to guage yourself against yourself and others.

That being said when it comes to the "300" what is a time to guage yourself.

Re: The 300 workout
In general these are good points....but a contrary item: ....I have a trainee with no CrossFit training backround who did Filthy Fifty first time Rx'd: 20:07! (a basketball player)

It's just a cute name attached to a work-out of the day, nothing more. The "1775" workout (celebrating the birth of the USMC) would be another.

The dangerous part is that people are not being properly warned in the popular articles that these work-outs are dangerous. Imagine trying the Filthy Fifty unscaled your first time at CrossFit. You'd sport some nasty injuries if you got even half way through it. That means that soon you'll have more moronic people claiming CrossFit (by virtue of its tangent association with GymJones and the "300" workout) is bad for you. My guess that will be the 5th guy that crushes his chest doing 135# floor wipers without using large diameter plates.
