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.

1st post ever: 72 back extensions, 64 push ups, 120 sit ups, and I modified my squats to wall squats for a time of 15.05. I also did a 2.5 mile jog as a warm up.

OK, Jenni....why is this hard for me to figure out? (Monday brain?). Do I do all 8 of one exercise, then go on to the next? So all 8 sets of BE, then go to PU, etc....or do I do 1 set of BE, 1 set PU, etc then start over - almost like a circuit.

Thanks. ;)

(Thanks for clarifying for me Jenni...I'm atotal flake today).

I'm not in it today and I let my brain keep telling me that instead of using the workout to push out the negativity. :( Could've done better...but it is what it is.

5 min jump rope warm up (this I am getting much better at, so I have that to be proud of today).

Back - 128
Push (mod) - 60 (blah)
Sit - 60 (2x blah)
Squat - 75 (blah cubed)

Still sweating and as always a good workout! :)

Jenni said...

I keep a note pad and pen on the floor next to me and during my 10 second rests, I write down my reps. It keeps ne motivated to keep my next set of reps just as high! Plus, I am horrible at keeping track in my head.
