5 EMOM Workouts For You To Try At Home
What is an EMOM workout?
Ever searched for workout ideas and came across the acronym ‘EMOM’? Like the majority of fitness acronyms, it’s not instantly clear what it exactly means. It stands for “every minute on the minute” and is a quick yet effective way to increase your heart rate, break a sweat and burn some calories. Understanding the benefits and how to do it will help you get the most out of your EMOM workouts.
How to do an EMOM Workout
- Predetermine your exercise movements (e.g. push-ups, squats, burpees).
- Predetermine how many reps you will perform for each exercise.
- Predetermine how long you want the workout to last.
- Start the timer.
- Every time a new minute starts, start the next exercise!
The aim is to finish your predetermined number of reps in under a minute. If you complete your reps fast, you will get a longer rest break before the next minute begins. If you exercise slowly, you will have a limited rest time.
5 Benefits of the EMOM Workout
They’re Quick! EMOM workouts are typically between 10 and 20 minutes long, and that time includes rest breaks! (if you complete your reps fast enough)
Easy to Customize – you can choose an achievable amount of reps that matches your fitness level.
Versatility – you can apply the EMOM workout to almost any type of exercise – just make sure you do them one minute at a time.
Post-Exercise Calorie Burn – unlike a yoga session or a leisurely walk, this intense interval workout will help you to keep burning calories long after the work out has ended.
Progression – EMOM workouts are a great way to measure progress as you gradually increase your reps per minute.
