Muscle Up EMOM for 4/22/2016

An “EMOM” (short for Every Minute on the Minute) is a great way to train for volume over a short, controlled period of time.  The idea is to pick a movement and reps that forces the athlete to work at a high intensity for 20-30 seconds.  Then after a 30-40 second rest, the athlete does the same work again.  This continues for a predetermined amount of time.  One reason that EMOM’s are so effective is that we can easily manipulate one aspect of the work in order to make it slightly harder without killing the athlete.  For example, we can add 10 lbs to a clean, or we can add 2 more reps to a pullup.  In a way, we are tricking our bodies to do more over a long period of time.
