Ora crushes a serious EMOM workout

The British singer, songwriter, actress, and workout pro is seen in Farmer's Instagram video doing some serious cyclist goblet squats, back rack lunges, dumbbell step ups, and box jump step downs. Farmer's caption reads, "Tight on time? Sometimes only having 30 minutes to train is a part of life so on days like today its good to have a game plan that gets the most out of every minute. Pro Tip: Pick the top 4 movements from your full session and put them in an EMOM."

If you're not familiar with EMOM, it means "every minute on the minute," so essentially, you'll do an exercise for however many reps in under 60 seconds. Farmer breaks down exactly what Ora did—a total of 6 rounds of the following exercises, which adds up to a 30-minute workout:

  • Min 1: Cyclist Goblet Squat
  • Min 2: Back Rack Lunge
  • Min 3: Dumbbell Step Up
  • Min 4: Box Jump Step Down
  • Min 5: Rest

Farmer closes off his post with, "Set reps and tempo that allow you to finish each exercise with 15-20 seconds spare." Ora commented on the post, "I love it!!"

Staying fit and practicing self-love is not new to Ora

In 2017, Ora graced the cover of Shape Magazine and was quoted saying, "I didn't start working out to get skinnier—I started working out to feel better. And I think it's important for women to know that." (One of the many reasons we love Rita Ora, right?) Back in 2014, the star also graced the cover of Cosmo and shared another admirable quote about self-love: "You have to come to terms with loving your body. Stand naked in front of the mirror and say, 'I'm f***ing sexy.' That's where it starts."

Loving, celebrating, and taking care of your body is ridiculously important

It's sometimes easier to make excuses than to carve out enough "me time" in your hectic schedule. It's also so easy to talk yourself out of exercise when you're having a particularly busy week. But take a page out of Ora's playbook. The star has released albums, including Ora in 2012 and Phoenix in 2018, and in between that, she's been in some of our favorite movies and shows like "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Fifty Shades Darker," "Fifty Shades Freed," and "Southpaw."

You can't make changes to your body and gain a six-pack just by snapping your fingers. It's important to maintain a healthy, consistent lifestyle of eating healthy and exercising on a regular basis. That's how you can work towards your goal. "In order for your health to change, you must change. It's a long-term process," explains Evan M. Chait, a clinical nutritionist, physical therapist, and acupuncturist.

So, as suspected, no pain, no gain. If you are inspired by Ora's healthy physique and epic workout, so are we! There's no better time like the present to get started—springtime is right around the corner. And next up, be sure to check out The "Simple" Exercise Rebel Wilson Did To Drop 75 Pounds.
