As the time of year gradually progresses toward the open with training, the goal of the strength portion of class also shifts. Instead of only focusing on increasing the maximum amount of load you can lift for a certain number of repetitions to improve strength and power qualities, the focus partially shifts towards improving and capacity and efficiency.
During the Emom training with repetitions on the upper end (3-5 per minute), the goal is to move more weight total per Emom rather than lifting as heavy of a weight as possible by the end of the Emom, for example:
10x5@185 (capacity focused, weights across each set)
10x5@95-215 (strength focused, weights building)
Also if you aren’t feeling up to lifting heavier then you did the previous week, than the goal can be to lift the same weight you did the previous week but at a lower RPE. Meaning you got the same amount of work done, but at a lower effort
