All EMOMs are not equal

August 29, 2018

 

 

Hey all,

 

Last week you all took on the EMOMSTER workout.  It was an intensive emom, meaning that you spend a series of minutes working intensively on one movement before moving on.

 

That type of EMOM is great for building volume in skills that you already possess and are quite familiar with.  It is tougher in that you encounter more and more specific muscular fatigue as the minutes roll by.  It really helps you to prepare for chipper style workouts with large chunks of reps in a row.

 

The other type of EMOM is a "rotating" EMOM, in which you switch to a different movement each minute.  In this case, you can "recover" certain muscles or movement patterns while doing a different movement.  This allows you to push a bit harder in each exercise, or try some harder scaling knowing that it will be a certain time before you come back to that same movement.

 

This week's EMOM is the rotating style, so see if you can ramp up to a higher weight, rep count, or difficulty level on some of the movements in the rotation (not all of them at once!).

 

See you in the gym,
