These EMOMs are highly individualistic. You can't know if the suggested weights or reps are suited to you until you try. Rookies start light and low.
Thing is, your response to an EMOM changes day to day, sometimes hour to hour. An EMOM workout can be a different animal each time you perform it. Things that will affect your performance might have to do with your hydration levels, your energy, your sleep the night before, even stress.
What we are trying to say here is, stay plastic. Just because the workout calls for certain reps or weights doesn't mean you shouldn't personalize it. To get the most out of any workout, be open to scaling both down and UP!
If you find you are breezing an EMOM (and you are an experienced GPPeep) don't be afraid to pour some more reps/weight on.
We've been doing a little more DL lately. If you've been following along, don't be afraid of Rx'ing the weight. If you've been dogging it a bit - be VERY afraid.
Have a great weekend. If you are out and about and find yourself in some amazing place in the world, snap a pic and send it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We'd love to feature your pic here on the site.
You can chalk up. You can loosen your grip. You can jump off the bar at the slightest little "tingle." After all of that, you might still be jumping down to bloody hands. (Syd)
