Used to use the stopwatch or timer functions on my phone but I've switch to this app and it works great.

This app is a must have for CrossFit workouts. Ideal for emoms, amraps and for time workouts. I even use it for strength work like squats by programming beeps for 45 seconds work and 2 minutes rest. And it’s free! I mean come on. 👍🏼

What is a WOD?

WOD stands for "Workout of the day" and is a word often used in CrossFit gyms(or boxes as they also are called).

Most gyms have a programming where they have different workouts each day, that where workout of the day comes from.

For most athletes a WOD is a single workout regardless if it's the actual workout of the day for the gym. For example Fran, Cindy and Murph are popular WODs.

What is AMRAP, EMOM and Tabata?

There's a few different formats and ways to measure score of a WOD. These are almost always a combination of time, rounds or repitions. Because of that you can understand why a good timer is so useful when doing these types of workouts.

AMRAP is an abbreviation for as many rounds(or repitions) as possible. THe workout always have a time cap and the score is the rounds(or repititons) you completed during that time.

EMOM stands for every minute on the minute. It means that each minute you must start the movement and complete the prescribed repitions.

Tabata is a style of workout where you have a fixed time for work and rest. Usually that is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated for 4 minutes.

For time is the most basic workout format. You just have to complete the workout and however long it takes is the score.
