EMOMs are one of the many protocols utilized fairly often in the CrossFit affiliate world. This previous Friday we used it simply as a timing tool to gradually increase load and intensity.

The main purpose of its normal usage is to test or challenge an athlete’s capacity of work, depending on the movement and loading. Generally the gym’s programming has an expectation to be met, but as always it can be scalable to every body.

Today’s workout would see an athlete completing 5 one-arm overhead squats with a single dumbbell or kettlebell per side with :10-:20 of rest before completing 15 perfect (no bend in the posture from head to toes) pushups.
