30-31OCT18: Crosstown Cup

Today’s met.con will showcase our first ‘EMOM‘ format, which stands for ‘Every Minute On the Minute.’ EMOM’s give you a round of work to complete on a running clock, and you simply have one minute to complete each round of work, with each round often alternating between two different  work sets. Sometimes EMOM’s can be really short, and sometimes they can be really long (like today!). Sometimes EMOMs will have AMRAP’s imbedded into one of the work sets, other time you will get some rest each round (like today!). Regardless, it’s a race against the clock, so try not to fall behind!

In the spirit of Los Angeles having a huge rivalry between two of our local universities (UCLA & USC) and who compete every year in varsity athletics through the Crosstown Cup, I will be dividing each platoon into two different groups so that the workout will flow much smoother: half the class will be ‘USC;’ the other half will be ‘UCLA.’ Here the breakdown for today’s WOD:
