The EMOM Playbook: Training Templates - Andrew Tracey
Brought to you by Men's Health Senior Fitness Editor - Andrew Tracey...
I’m a firm believer that rest time is one of the most criminally overlooked elements in most people’s training regimes, it doesn’t take much critical thinking to realise just how much of an impact rest intervals can have on your workout, in fact, the decision to hit the start button on a stopwatch can be the difference between an hour-long plod around the gym and a 30-minute calorie-torching, metabolic stress-inducing crucible, all without changing a single other variable.
It should come as no surprise then that I’m a big fan of exercise formats that are predicated primarily on keeping one eye on the clock at all times, and my absolute favourite among these is the ‘EMOM’.
This is NOT a programme to follow, or a collection of workouts to try, this is a tool to help assemble a workout sequence that allows you to maximise your training within your own schedule, whilst also potentiating your recovery.
