Barbell EMOM Workouts From Crossfit For More Muscle


When the barbells come out, the big weights roll in. You can use all the kettlebell, dumbbell, rucking, strong man or weight vest workouts that you want, and we love them, but when you really want to pack on the muscle you need to use big weights. You need to use barbells.

When you start performing EMOM workouts with barbells you’ll notice your strength increases but your conditioning and endurance will go up as well.

EMOM stands for every minute on the minute. You’ll either perform a specific number of repetitions of specific exercise in a minute then rest with the reminder of time or one full movement for a minute. EMOM workouts are typically under 20 minutes and since they are shorter in time they are particularly good for building endurance strength.
