CrossFit Benchmark WOD
- EMOM For as Long as Possible
- 1 Rep in the first minute
- 2 Rep in the second minute
- 3 Rep in the third minute
Choose any single movement (pull-ups, thrusters, burpees, cleans, snatches, rope climbs, etc.). Then, each minute on the minute (EMOM), starting at the top of the minute, with 1 repetition in minute 1, complete one more repetition per minute each subsequent minute (2 reps from 1:00-2:00, 3 reps from 2:00-3:00, etc.). Continue until you can no longer complete the number of reps prescribed in under a minute.
Score is the number of full rounds completed plus number of reps completed in the last round.
About the wod
The pull-up version has been repeated many times in the years since on the CrossFit Main Site, but never (as of 2019) with a name. Still, this format, ascending ladder interval until failure, is well known within the CrossFit community as "Death By."
