Just when you thought you knew all of the CrossFit-speak, were talking EMOMs. EMOM means every minute on the minute, and gives you a specific number of reps for something thats meant to be completed in 60 seconds or less. Then the clock resets and you repeat the process. Especially if you think EMOMs arent for you, read on. There are some pretty awesome benefits to them that you need to know about. You learn about pacing yourself EMOM workouts naturally encourage you to move at a fast pace. Once the minute is up, youll start from the beginning again. If you want valuable rest time, youll need to complete the work before the minute is up. The faster you finish, the more rest you get. You can modify 10 C2B pullups in a minute are beyond your skill level, but 5 is doable? Adjust to what worksfor you. EMOMs are short Itll be over before you know it. EMOMs are generally no more than 15 minutes. Make no mistake, EMOMs are not easy by any means. But you get to embrace the challenge, enjoy the rest periods, and take pleasure in knowing youll have a foam roller in your hand soon enough. You can track results easily Who doesnt like to see progress, right? Heres a great opportunity. For example, if you can bang out 10 burpees in 40 seconds, that leaves you 20 seconds for recovery. Fast forward a few weeks and test yourself. If those same 10 burpees were done in less time, youve got even more proof that your hard work is paying off. EMOMs can be done almost anywhere Cant get to class tomorrow? No problem. You can still get a workout in with an EMOM at home, and the best part is that youve got a ton of options that use bodyweight so you dont even need exercise equipment. Heres an idea to get you started: try a 10 minute EMOM of 10 push-ups and 10 air squats. And don't forget to record how you did. So get psyched and keep an eye out. You may be seeing a new EMOM workout sooner than you think.
