Hiit Mama workouts are timed so time yourself and go as FAST AS YOU CAN!! That is how you get the cardio in. If you are a new Hiit Mama, just start with the workout of the day (WOD)...no need to go back to the first post because we will eventually repeat all those workouts. Make sure and post your time in the comment section so you can track your progress! Also, there are video demos of each exercise we do down the right side bar.

13 reps. Single leg step ups on workout bench and sit ups instead of knees to elbows.

Valentine said...

8 reps.

Would like an answer:
Those who have the doorframe pull up bar... is there a step between hanging and knee to elbow that you did that helped? My knees are coming parallel to my hips. Do I just need to keep trying and eventually I can do it?

13 as Rx'd and it kicked my butt!

17 + box jumps and push press
I measured my step that I use for box jumps and it's only 10" so I'm going to have to find a bigger one.
Valentine, that is what I do. Jodie recently posted that she has been doing crossfit for 5 months and just recently was able to get her knees all the way to her elbows (maybe she well correct me if I'm wrong). I just figure if I keep trying hopefully I will eventually get there :)

Tiffany- it took me about 6 months to get my knees above my waist level and then I watched some instructional videos on YouTube and realized I was doing them incorrectly by throwing my head back. Once I corrected my form, it was much easier and put less strain on my back. Then I was out for over a month and now my knees are back to my waist but I am improving each time I attempt. :)

hmmmm, good to know! I have watched numerous videos on how to do them... I guess it will just take time. I just didn't know if there was an in-between step, couldn't find one online so I guess it doesn't exist. They look SOO easy!!! The only difference that I saw on the videos is that I can't let my legs fully extend like they do, I have to keep them bent while hanging.
Thanks, I will just keep practicing! So if I can't do them by September... :)

10 reps
Only used 10lbs for push press (dumbbell version)
And my step is 12"
Still sweating like a pig! :)

10 reps.
14 inch box jumps (up 2 stairs)
25lb push press
Situps

I don't have the arm strength to lift my 120+ pound body and do the knees to elbows so I substitute situps instead. Plus being 8 1/2 weeks pregnant, it doesn't seem like something I should be doing anyway. I am going to try to keep doing crossfit until I get bigger, but may do some adjustments to some of the WODs.
