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.

As if this workout weren't tough enough, my fiance made me do it (with him) outside in the 90 degree / 100% humidity! Needless to say, I was not speedy. :-(

His: 15:00

Joy said...

14:30.... Used a step stool as a box and it's about 20" so I did mostly step-ups but some jumps...

Kimberly said...

Started box jumps on a kitchen chair (18in) and after 1st round the chair started to wiggle. I guess it's not made for box jumps! Lol. Went to stairs (11in) if anyone has a good idea for box jumps that is higher than the 2 stairs please let me know.
Also only had a 10lb dumbbell for kettle bell.

Beth said...

Had to do step-ups for 2-5 (so sore from the one leg squats still!)
25# kettlebell

Lauren said...

Step Ups
15lb dumbbell
Water break in middle

Jessica R. said...

Step ups on 2nd stair
16lb KB
When the reps are high like that and I start to get tired, I start to lose count. I know I had to recount a few times. Does that happen to anyone else? Total brain fizz!
