WOD Workout of the day

This is the metabolic conditioning part of the workout that comes at the end of the session.

AMRAP As Many Reps/Rounds as Possible

Usually put into the WOD; you will be given a selection of exercises and your aim will be to do as many rounds of these exercises within the time scale given.

EMOM Every minute on the minute

So EMOM 10min means that you do a certain exercise every minute on the minute for 10 minutes and rest for the remainder of the minute after you have completed the exercise.

E2MOM would mean every 2minutes on the minute. So you will do a certain exercise with the timer going every 2minutes.

Finally, what is Rx? Rx is an abbreviation for “Prescription”, which means the prescribed WOD without any adjustments. Rx is supposed to be challenging. It is a bench-mark to work towards and it is there to even challenge the elite athletes. It makes us feel great to overcome tough workouts, however sometimes, the Rx WOD might be a little over our capabilities, potentially leaving some room for bad form or even completely hitting the wall by misjudging it. All because we want to “Rx” it. Instead, we should focus on the process of getting better and fitter. Remember, it is not a bad thing to scale. It’s all about getting that base, good form and progression in the long run!
