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.

First time beginner here.. can you explain the 50-35-20?

vanessa said...

Kristen, do all three exercises 50 reps then start over and do all three for 35 reps finish with a round of 20.

Thanks for explaining the 50-35-20 I would have done 50 WB 35 PU and 20 JR and been done =) Somehow I missed that previously

Brent and Britta said...

8:50
Girl push-ups (and even struggled with those! My upper body is so weak!)

Donna R said...

I did 4:32, 10 year old son did 3:12

Jo Bethea said...

6:01 used a 25 and 20# weight for wall balls (not actually throwing it of course) Bday June 29th
Thanks

Jo Bethea said...

missed the push ups...guess I'll go back and do 3 rounds of those

Jess said...

10:25

Jo Bethea said...

adding 2:30 for all rounds of pushups...so 8:31 total though split....I'm learning

Donna R said...

Whoops, we did it wrong... Guess we have some more reps

Donna R said...

New times are 12:32 (me) and 7:32 (Jaden , age 10)

vanessa said...

10:02
10 lb med. ball
Pushups on toes (a real struggle but I'm stubborn and also knee pushups hurt my knees)

vanessa said...

Also, someone posted earlier about what size weighted ball to buy. I use the ones at our gym... but if I were buying one I'd get a 10 or 12 lb. Just my opinion though.

Kimberly said...

6:42.
Used a 10 lb dumbbell for the wall ball and did girl push ups. I did notice today though that I can do more push ups in a row. Hooray I'm getting stronger!

Jenelle said...

Had to re-do it because I didn't understand at first. Now my time is 6:39. And shaking!!! :)

Just to share.. If you go to www.crossfit.com and click on "faq" then on "substitutions" it lists good substitutions for a lot of their exercises.
They recommend dumbbel thrusters in place of wall balls.

Lori T. said...

10:40

Mod:
- 2 x 5# dumbbell thrusters
- girly pushups

ivonne said...

The Smith Family said...

Jenni said...

10:13 as RXed
10 lb wall ball
Always girl push-ups because I am a girl and proud.
Push-ups were brutal.

Jenni said...

Vanessa is correct. All exercises 50, then 35, then 20.

Jenni said...

Thanks Mama. :)

Jenni said...

Hi Jo! Welcome! You can sub thrusters (probably what you are basically doing) or you can use a basketball, etc. until you can buy a weight ball.

Jenni said...

I agree Vanessa. I picked up a nice 10 lb weight ball at Target for under $20.

Jenni said...

Thanks Lori! That is a great resource.

Jenni said...

Ian and Amy said...

7:56- pushups are so hard!
I don't have a jump rope yet. So do you think it is better to do simulated jump rope (do the motions of jump roping with out the rope) or just do jacks?

Jenni said...

I would think that simulated jump rope you could go faster so I would do that.

Erin said...

12:40. Girl pushups 10lb ball and jacks.

vanessa said...

Girl pushups would probably be better to do. I'm sure form would be better. I just have to get out a mat for that...what a thing to be lazy about! :-)

Dorothy said...

13:48 with 8#ball

ladyhello said...

This took me 20 minutes. I finished, so am proud of myself. Way to go everyone!!

Jenna Caldwell said...

The first workout I finished from start to finish! I even accidentally did 50-35-25 instead of 20 {oops!} 9:49! {btw, my birthday is May 15, can't wait for that birthday workout;) }

Anna Jackson said...

7:43
Girly push ups (she said as her arms quivered)

Logan said...

10:15.....basketball for wall balls

My bday is June 23

Mary said...

So good to be back after my maddening not expected two weeks off.
Finished with 12:14.7 with a 8# ball(what was I thinking, 6# would have been key!)
Modified PU
and I doubled up on jacks, since I knew I would get a better workout with a rope, but we don't have one yet.
I also messed up and did my last set of 25 and not 20...oh well. No pain no gain, right?
Thanks again for the workouts...really missed them while I was gone.

Yoshi said...

Wow! You all killed it, these times are super impressive. I'll be doing this first thing in the morning. I'm hoping to just make it past the first round of 50!!!

mary said...

6:35
a rx'd
8lb ball

Running T. said...

Happy Birthday, Kristin!

"Jenni" Pushups, 4# ball (need to buy a 10# one, at least).
I SUCK at pushups - 50!!!??? Hello! Jello! However, I was pleased that the first 25 were basically no problem, it was 26-50 that killed me and then every one from the other sets after that.

12:50 - eh. Not great (Those pushup slowed me down big time!!)

Did 200 jump ropes afterwards just to get my heart a little extra pumpin and for the practice.

Heather said...

7:58...girly pushups and did thrusters since I don't have a medicine ball. Upper body = weak sauce

Brittany said...

Returning after a long break. 10:22 with a 12 lb ball. Crap I'm weak.

Yasshira said...

Wow! My time was 13:40!!! I used 5# for thrusters since I'm nursing a shoulder. Pushups were a mix of regular & girl pushups and had to do jacks. I left my rope in the car. Still new to all of this, can't wait to one day post an awesome time like you ladies!! :)

Kimberly said...

12:00 - 10# ball, girl pushups. My arms still feel like jello (did the workout yesterday, just forgot to post).

Amber Flowers said...

10:23 i used 15lb for sub thrusters, half man half girly pushups, and sit ups instead of jumping because i did todays work out right before this which included high jumps.

Duke~N~Morghan said...

7:02, 8lb ball and jump rope

Beth said...
