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.

Can you suggest anything to sub for the runs? I'm doing these at naptime and don't have a treadmill.

vanessa said...

If I was subbing for the run I'd do 45-50 seconds of high knees, jumping jacks or jump rope.

Mel said...

Holy intense Batman! 28:56
That is the LAST time I eat a cinnamon bun for breakfast (son's bday breakfast) I almost puked!

subbed step ups for running
girl pushups - love you Jenni!!!
18lbs for presses. tried 20lbs for first 20 and almost didn't finish

Jenni said...

Vanessa has good suggestions. I would say 1 minute of jump rope or jacks for every 200 meters. When my babies were napping, I would run laps around my 100 meter court. Or if my little guy is awake, I set up his stroller in the front yard with some snacks, buckle him in and he watches me run around and around! Now we aren't in a court anymore :( so he watches me run up and down. :)

31:08 compared to 34:19 in October.

Only change for me was this time I combined all the running (had girls with me) and then finished the 5 rounds of the WOD at home.
This time I pushed the girls in the jogger for the run, and last time I didn't so I'm happy with that improvement!

Valentine said...

Only had time for 3 rounds, kind of disappointed because I wanted to finish...

Jodie said...


Compared to 5 min in Oct when I did one round :)

Jenni said...

Lol Jodie!


Compared to 35:05 in October with 10 lb press.
Both times 3 rounds would have been plenty! ;)

Jenni said...

1st round pull-ups
Next 4 rounds 60 lb press.

Maggie said...

35:37- girl push ups and subbed runs for 1 minute cardio. Did jumping jacks for the first 3 rounds then a minute of kettle bell swings for the last 2 rounds.

Lynn said...

Wow! That is crazy! 42:18 did 8lbs. Weights for the shoulder press (about killed myself after 4 reps at 20lbs.!) And did girlie PU.

Meag said...

Only 3 rounds...no excuses...this just really kicked my ass today. Loved it ;)

Heather @ Heather's Dish said...

I've been doing the workouts for a while but this is the first time commenting!


Subbed high knees for 60 seconds instead of runs and died half girly push-ups half regular...OUCH!

Kimberly said...

Ran 7 miles pushing my 1 year old then did workout. Probably should have looked at.the WOD before I ran. Oh well. Did 2 rounds with 10lb dumbells then switched to 5lb for shoulder press and did girlie push up! Nice one though!!

Jessica R. said...

Yeehaw! Sure glad that's over with!
Sub'd 50 single unders (jump rope) for running & did wall push ups after the first 2 rounds killed my shoulders.
During the last half of the last round, my 2yr old woke up super cranky. I pushed thru it pretending I could only save her if I completed the work out! It was good motivation, haha!

Jenni said...

Lol! Awesome.

Anna Jackson said...

Wow!! That was intense!!! I am soaked!!


Lauren said...

I'm soaked!

NTurner said...

Well, this took me 42:17. I combined all the runs (had to do that part before hubby went to work) (2.2 miles) did 10lb presses, girly PU, and lunges in place of squats.

Jennifer said...


This was a great workout!! I used 15 pound dumbbells for the first two rounds then 8 pound dumbbells the last three rounds for the shoulder press. Push ups from knees.
