12-Minute Kettlebell EMOM Workout

Whether you’re struggling to find time to work out or you’re just looking for a new way to mix up your workouts, you’ll love our new video series, Busy Burner, in which the top trainers in the country deliver quick, effective workouts right to your phone via your social media feeds.

But before you do that, check out the video above for a ferocious full-body workout you can do with a single kettlebell; best of all, the whole thing takes only 12 minutes.

Fhitting Room instructor and Nike trainer Dennys Lozada stopped by the MH Rec Room to show us this one, swiftly obliterating any excuses even the busiest MH editors could come up with to not get their sweat on.

This EMOM (every minute, on the minute) workout is made up of just four exercises, but you’ll complete the circuit three times.

Here’s how it works: When the clock starts, you begin with the first exercise—a kettlebell cluster (Lozada demonstrates all the moves in the video above), performing all your reps as quickly as you can.

Why does speed matter? Because the remainder of that minute is your rest; when the second minute starts, you go right into your second exercise—burpees.

At the top of the third minute you’ll launch into kettlebell swings, followed by sit-ups in the fourth. That’s one round, and you’re going for three.

Get it? Got it? Good. Give this workout a shot and let us (@menshealthmag) and Lozada (@fftstrong) know how you did. Don’t forget to include the #MHRecRoom hashtag in your posts!
