The Perfect EMOM Workout For Busy Professionals

Are you short on time but still want an effective workout? This EMOM workout might be perfect for all you busy professionals out there.

EMOM stands for "every minute on the minute." Before you begin your EMOM workout, you'll want to set up a one-minute timer for the minute-long intervals.

We're going to lead you through 10 different exercises. Each exercise has a certain number of reps you need to complete. The goal is to finish the reps before the minute is over so that the remaining time in the interval is your rest.

You can go through this circuit once for a 10-minute workout, twice for a 20-minute workout, or three times for a 30-minute workout—depending on how busy you are! Make sure you warm up before you start.

Grab a water, take a look at the moves, and try this EMOM workout for yourself!
