10/01/2016 Happy October!

For the entire month of October, Every Monday of the Month (EMOM) we have programmed some sort of Every Minute on the Minute (EMOM) Workout. Get it!? An EMOM for EMOM! 🙂

Why we love EMOMs:
* They are a great way to get volume in a specific time frame. We especially like using them to get volume at heavy loads.
* They are mentally challenging— When you give people a specific workload goal that needs to be achieved in a given time frame, they are generally more motivated to complete it.
* They teach people how to manage fatigue and work close to their physical and psychological thresholds, which ties in with the points above. Because people are forced to perform more volume in a shorter space of time, they are working closer to their thresholds, and because they are motivated to complete their goal, they are also forced to manage their fatigue better than in a regularly timed workout (when they have infinite time to rest).

We hope you have fun with the EMOMs we’ve programmed. Let us know if you have any questions or feedback!
