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.
Complete the following every minute for as long as possible:
40 Jump rope
Begin with 10 pounds and add 5 pounds each minute until you hit your max weight and then go back down by 5 pounds (or scale as
needed). The workout is finished when you cannot complete the snatch
within the minute.
Post how many minutes and max weight.
Tabata "Bottom to Bottom" Squat
Run 1 mile
Clock starts for run on rising from last squat.
For twenty seconds do as many reps of the assigned exercise as you can - then rest 10 seconds.
Repeat this seven more times for a total of 8 intervals, 4 minutes total exercise.
The score is the least number of reps for any of the eight intervals.
The Tabata Bottom to Bottom Squat is a Tabata Squat but each rep
begins at the bottom and ends at the bottom. The turn around at the top
is immediate - no pause. The ten-second rest for each interval is also
held at the bottom of the squat as opposed to the top. Interestingly,
this squat, in contrast to the "normal" Tabata squat, motivates full hip
extension. Also, the ten second rests don't seem as short with this
