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.

Leg lifts.

Sarah said...

Erin, I don't have a bar yet either. Just did some searching.... some posts on the Crossfit boards say reverse crunches or v sit ups

Sarah said...

shawntae said...

7:13 v sit ups...I have no core!

vanessa said...

Is anyone else very sore on back of shoulders today? Guess the box dips got me more than I thought yesterday.

Jenelle said...

So 10lbs in each hand, or just one hand with a 10lb dumbbell? Youtube demos have me confused...

Jenni said...

20 lbs total. Make sure when you YouTube, you include Crossfit in your search.

Jenni said...

Good suggestions. Thanks. :)

Jenelle said...

7:11 as rx'd. Struggled on KTE. Thanks for the clarification earlier. :)

Doing 75 KTE that close together is rough. Blisters.

The KTE were not the best but I'm trying. First attempt at them and I know they will get better!!

Heather said...

6:05...I lay on the ground and do the knees to elbows there since I don't have a pullup bar. Same motion, just making sure your back is pressed into the ground to protect your spine!

My hands hurt!

ladyhello said...

I did this with my12 yo daughter... we did 6 sets before we both had blisters on our hands and decided to play volley ball instead. great workout 17minutes for the 6 rounds...
will chalk help from getting blisters? We use the park monkey bars for our knees to elbows.

ladyhello said...

HAHA we did MORE than we were supposed to!! I thought is was 25 knees to elbows and 10 rounds LOL woops..high five all around :)

I can honestly say that I hated every second of this.
Having said that, I am proud that I stuck with it.

First round - 15# bar. My upper inner thighs (groin?) are KILLING me - I think I stretched them out too much after yesterdays WOD. I ended up getting rid of weight so I could do the lunges...otherwise I could not have done them.

My K2E are getting so much better - not there yet, but I'm half way up and I can do about 6 or 7 before I need a break! :) That's improvement!!!

12# dumbbells
V-ups

Sandy said...

My 1st time participating in these workouts! 7:35 laid on floor for KTE.

mary said...

9:36
didn't know 25 yards so did 25 lunges
15 sit-ups and 15 leg lifts in place of KTE

Brittany said...

8:14
I really struggled with the KTE. That was my first time. It was more like knees almost to chest. Ended doing leg lifts for the last two rounds. Next time I will wear gloves on the pull up bar. My hands bein ripped to shreds was the deal breaker.

Lauren said...

Candy said...

8:46...this was my very first Crossfit workout! :) I didn't have 10's, so had to use 8's. Also, did reverse crunches because I don't have a pullup bar.

Carolyn said...

My very first crossfit workout and loved it!! My time was 15 min. Not to shabby for being 9 weeks postpartum on my 4th baby.
