Today’s Wednesday Workout is a perfectly crafted EMOM with your name on it, courtesy of Coach Michelle. EMOM (Every Minute on the Minute) workouts are designed to help you simplify your movements and go at your own pace, based on your fitness level. This straightforward method is simple yet effective, making it well suited for a DIY workout in a group or individual setting. BJ GADDOUR described this training method best in his Men’s Health article:“by doing something at the top of every minute and then resting the remainder of that minute, you have a very simple structure with which to manage fatigue and implement progressive overload…EMOM allows you to do quality work at your own pace while establishing a clean training skeleton to work within.” The EMOM portion of this workout is just 10 minutes. As you progress through this workout, concentrate on your form and then allow yourself a proper break for the remainder of the minute. Keeping this pattern up for the full 10 minute stretch will help you achieve a great workout in a short period of time.
