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.

How can I mod the Thruster or can I sub something? I don't have weights or a bar...I have a TRX (I made....cheaper....)though...maybe something with that? Thanks!

The push ups were super hard in round two my arms were like noodles. haha I used 30 pounds for round one and two then used 20 pounds for round three. Great workout!

Kelly said...

First time doing a CrossFit workout and I loved it! Can't wait to see my times drop. Great website!

6:02 (push-ups nearly killed me)

Jenni said...

Well, I don't know what a TRX is but you can modify by using soup cans or a broom stick until you can run to Target and get some weights. :)

Jenni said...

No I don't but maybe I should create one..

Jenni said...

Thanks for posting that. I try to find Crossfit demos with dumbbells but it is difficult.

Jenni said...

Total: 10:50
20 lbs

Wow Mamas! That was a lot of thrusters! 135 thrusters!! Can't believe that. Felt it.

Caprichos said...

@Jenni No problem! I only have dumbbells, but I have always been able to find some modifications. www.exrx.net is great for that. I always find demos there to do the exercises with proper form with dumbbells.

Thanks for the effort of keeping the blog up. The workouts are always quick, tough and effective.

Laura Fiore said...

First time joining you and I really appreciate you making the time to share your workouts with us!

4:25 Even the last set of situps killed me!

Running T. said...

Wow. That was excruciating...I can't even type...my arms are jell-o. 2nd day at Crossfit. I had to talk myself through this. I haven't sweat so much in a long time (granted it's also actually 81 degrees in my apt - no AC...but still). Thank you, Jenni. It was so hard. But I feel so proud of myself - even though my times are crazy slow.
I modified the thrusts by using a resistance tube that I have. I stepped on it so it was taut through the thrusts. It's rated at 10 pounds resistance, but it felt like 1,000. :) Modified push ups too.

9:26 (I had to stop a lot, but I did it!!!)

Jenni, Here is a video on building your own suspension trainer "TRX" (cost me about $25 and I love it, vs the $200 TRX)):


Great work out.

Mary said...

All with a broomstick since I am still new and wanting to make sure my form is good before adding to much weight.
Do you recommend doing a run before or after the workout? Thanks!!

Kelly said...

Kelly S here day 3!


I'm a sweaty mess but feel great!!

Kelly said...

You definitely should!!

Jenni said...

I would say that if you do want to run, definitely do it after so it won't mess with your times.

Day 2!! So intense! For the first round I used a barbell but I couldn't find clips for the weights so I switched to dumbbells. 20# every round.

3:53 (girlie push-ups for now!)

Not sure I'll be able to walk tomorrow but I'm loving it!

Mary said...

Great Thanks! I'll start that tomorrow for sure!
