An invigorating total body challenge every-minute-on-the-minute.
Now THIS is how to start off your week! I love this workout! It has a little bit of everything and the EMOM time domain is where the fitness magic is! So stay true to that clock! Enjoy! -Carla
Tabata: 20sec work/10 sec rest x 6 min (3 rounds of all 4 exercises).

When you finish all 4 movements go back to the beginning and repeat all movements for a total of 3 rounds, a total of 6 min.
