In a traditional weight lifting set up, you would perform one exercise for a designated number of reps, doing a certain number of sets per exercise.
Your rest periods may often be dictated based on your goals.
They could be anywhere from 30 seconds – if you are going for more endurance / fat loss – to up to three minutes if you are really trying to aim for maximum strength and muscle development.
With the Every Minute On the Minute (EMOM) approach, rest periods will be determined by how quickly you are able to progress through the exercises you are supposed to be performing.
In an EMOM workout, you’ll typically have a list of exercises to go through. The number of exercises will depend entirely on the workout in question.
(In some cases, you may have just two exercises to perform, back to back, alternating between them. In other cases, it may be an entire circuit that you are attempting to get through.)
You’ll have a target number of reps to perform with every exercise, and once those reps are completed, the remainder of that minute is your rest period.
Once the next minute buzzer sounds, it’s off to do the exercise again.
This way, you are doing the exercises Every Minute On the Minute, as the name suggests 🙂
Here’s an example:
15 Min Swing / Push Up / Burpee EMOM Workout
Perform the exercises for reps starting on Every Minute On the Minute for 15 minutes straight:
– 20 two hand KB swings
– 15 push ups
– 10 burpees
That workout seems simple, but it’s quite tough!
You’ll end up doing 100 swings, 75 push ups, and 50 burpees, all in just 15 minutes.
The first round might not be too tough, but as the workout progresses and fatigue kicks in, you’ll see that it gets much harder, fast 🙂
This is one of the things that makes EMOM unique.
Also, with this style of training, you’ll end up getting improved cardio conditioning, enhanced muscle and strength endurance and superior fat burning results.
