Workout Rationale

 

Capacity is defined as “the ability to contain or deal with something”.

Longer EMOM workouts, such as this one, are meant to build your capacity for each movement programmed with increasing difficulty as the workout progresses.

EMOM workouts can be programmed in many different ways, this specific format focuses on the athlete’s own ability to perform each movement at a sustainable pace over the course of the workout. The given timeframe of 40sec to work encourages each athlete to find their own pace in the beginning, and then trying to stick to that rep scheme throughout. This is not meant to be a 100% effort in the first couple of rounds and 20% effort towards the later rounds… Rather, start slower and ramp up towards the end if you can. Stay in control.

If you are unsure as to how you should approach this workout, try and hold at least a 65-70% effort for the first half, then consider increasing your effort by another 5-10% if you feel you can.

Your score will be calculated as the total amount of reps performed over the course of 18 minutes. This means you should try and keep score by counting your reps during each minute. You can use a whiteboard or keep a piece of paper nearby or write your reps on the floor with chalk (consult your box owner first before writing on his/her floor).
