First a 5 minute EMOM, then a fast-paced HIIT, finishing with a 5 minute AMRAP. Ready? http://www.intervaltimer.com/timers/8091883 Your EMOM (every minute on the minute) will be: 10 x squat thrusts 10 x low side shuffle (sitting low and staying low, shuffle three to the right and then back to the left three. Each way counts as 1). Repeat the moves at the top of the minute for 5 minutes. The timer will move on the the HIIT portion. You know all of the moves. Your AMRAP (as many reps as possible) consists of the following moves: -4 rounds of 1 star jump + Narrow squat and tap your foot front, side and back. You'll do a star jump between each leg, so a total of 4 star jumps. -16 twisting mountain climbers (8 each side) -8 leg drop + toe touch crunches Move through the three moves as many rounds as you can in the 5 minutes.
