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.

What It Feels Like... said...

16:21. That. Was. Brutal.

Running T. said...

If I stare at this WOD long enough will it go away?
Guess I better just tackle it...I. Hate. Burpees. :)

Running T. said...

OK....Did I mention I hate burpees? Here is why:

31:06

Mod su because of diastisis and the burpees became modified as the work out went on too...

The last 50 burpees took me 8:40 - JUST the burpees!!!
I almost walked away and didn't come back and just took a DNF...
But my SUCCESS today is that I did finish and I stuck with it, regardless of a crappy time.

That was the hardest physical challenge I had to mentally push myself through in a very long time.

For the record, I still hate burpees...

Jen Morse said...

WTG Running T!! Time means nothing here! I'm saving this one for the weekend, I can bet I will take as long, most likely longer! Lol
I second the feelings toward burpees!
I like the little quote that says "no matter how slow you are, you are still lapping everyone on the couch!" It's my mantra... :)
Keep up the great work!

Ruth Anne said...

28:07 boy PU with burpees, mod su (tailbone injury). Almost changed to wall burpees, but I took it SLOW and finished! Feels like a great accomplishment!
Thanks for a good challenge!

mama chelly said...

I am completely new to this and am recovering from a complete achilles rupture (surgery in early May). There really is no way I can do burpees so I'll alternate between squats (10/30/50) and planks with leg extensions (on knees...can't go on toes yet...20/40). Does that sound reasonable? I'll let you know how it goes (and how long)!

Mindy Kroll said...

18:07 with half boy PU burpees and half no PU burpees. YIKES!

Jackie said...

26:21...those last 50 burpees, wow.

mama chelly said...

12:58
With all the comments on burpees, I def have it easy.
Knee planks not really good alternative. Maybe push ups next time.

Sarah said...

I am laying here hoping the same thing!

Kirsten said...

40:35.
I am dyyyyyyyying!

liza favaro said...

18:45, no pu on the burpees. I just couldn't face that!

Kristie Beeler said...

17:06 with competition burpees. ouch.
Also, I went to my very first CrossFit class yesterday.
Loved it.

jamie said...

17 minutes, girl pushups. and now I want to die.

therams said...

30:28 with girl pu's and varying sit-up exercises. Did not think I'd finish this.

Ian and Amy said...

21:12
Brutal. That was burpee hell!

Sarah said...

agreed burpee hell!
12 yr old son did it with me - 14:07
me - 16:59 BUT I somehow stopped the clock for 30 of the last burpbees so I'm estimating around 20:00??

Happy Friday - enjoy the weekend ladies!

Shelly said...

I am embarrassed to say... I really did try but could not finish this workout... I am hoping it's cause I am still sore from yesterday. This is only my 3rd day in... I promise to keep trying!

christina said...

I really really hate burpees... amazing to hate something so much that I had never tried before today.

WOW I SUCKED!

I massively modified and still couldnt complete all of the reps.

wow.

Annie Lindsey said...

This is my first time commenting, I wasn't going to do today's because I just finished teaching a spin class but my 10 year old niece wanted to do it with me. Our time was 32:40, tough stuff!!


BDay is 10/27

Carolyn said...

38:50. Girl pushups on all the burpees. It took a long time, but I finished!!

Lisa H said...

19:11

Boy PU for all burpees....which I have a love hate relationship! I love to see them in the workout and how I feel after them but I still hate them!!

Jenni said...

LOL! Do you know how hard it was to click "publish" on this one!?! Dread.

Jenni said...

Truth. :)

Jenni said...

Great way to modify. :)

Jenni said...

Dang Kristie! You're my hero.

Jenni said...

Wow Jamie!!!!!

Jenni said...

You will do this again in a year and look back at this comment and be shocked that you couldn't finish because your time will be so good. :)

Jenni said...

20:03
Beat my time from a year ago by 2 minutes. I have no idea how that can be done in 13 minutes!! Summer, you must be a fem-bot! ;)

Jenni said...

Chris:
17:05
modified burpees- only down to a plank (shoulder injury)

Julie Fraser said...

Only did 10 burpees per round. Totally of 50
8:35

SarahMC said...

This is my first time posting. I've been doing your workouts a few times a week and this one was so painfully awesome that I decided to finally post.

26:07 and only did 10 girl push ups!

birthday: 11/9

ccdean said...

26 min. Finished the last two sets with sit-ups and push-ups. I hope next time to get all the burpee's in. Ughhhh....Don't give up....right?

Jen Morse said...

Doesn't matter that you finish, as long as you know you did your best! Your only competition is you!

Jen Morse said...

Keep at it! You can do it!

Running T. said...

Thanks Jen Morse!! You are right - sometimes my competitive brain takes over and I get stuck in the "I'm slow" mindset, when I should focus on the fact that I'm at least doing it and doing my best at it. I like the "no matter how slow you are, you are still lapping everyone on the couch!" - I'm going to use that as my mantra too!
Everybody who even started this WOD and put the effort in to try it deserves a pat on the back, regardless of if you finished, did every burpee, modified, or had your best (or worst!) time ever!! This one was tough!!
Great job, all! I love this community of support!!

On a side note though, ANYONE that broke less than 20 minutes on this one is a total XFit Goddess to me!!! ;) Haha!

Running T. said...

Jenni -

When I woke up and saw all those burpees I thought, really?!! Couldn't she throw us a bone on Friday and have changed it up!? BUT, I'm glad you did hit the publish button and keep it as is - it's that challenge that makes us strong and makes us feel accomplished!

Thanks again for the awesome blog!!!

Liz said...

I kinda cheated. I did from 30. I was working out with a friend new to crossfit, and I'm still trying to heal my shoulder. So for 30 sit ups, 10 burpees, 20 SU, 20 burpees, 10 SU, 30 burpees I finished in 8:47. Full and correct burpees the whole time.

Jenni said...

Ha ha! I want to pick an "easy" WOD every day but I know I won't progress if I don't push myself. Thanks for all your great comments. I love our community of Mamas!

Josh, Kim & Kids said...

21:55
Girl pu
Alternated 10 mod to 10 regular burpees

Sarah said...

Holy crap this was hell. I did the first two sets of burpees with the pushup, but had to drop that out of the last 3 rounds in order to finish. My Iphone (with timer) died toward the end, so I'm guessing on time, but it was around 28 minutes. Not so good, but I'll have a huge window to improve next time it comes up!

Jen Morse said...

See Running T. I told you you'd beat me!
32.48
The only modification in that I did all girl push ups. Other than that I did it as rx'd.
Then went for a 10k run. Trying to build my endurance...
This was a really hard one! WTG everyone!

Kristie Beeler said...

Far as I'm concerned, anyone who attempted this beast is a ROCKSTAR!

Running T. said...

Still a great time Jen Morse!!! :) And you beat everyone still on the couch! Haha!

PS - Who else is totally sore today? My arms and back are achy achy!!

Jenni said...

I woke up this morning so sore and then I smiled because I knew that meant that I had pushed myself past my comfort level and that made me excited for how my body is changing and progressing! I love being sore because that means it is working! ;)

Cassi said...

20:37 boy pu, while talking with my Dad. Brutal

Karissa said...

26.50..tough!! first cross fit workout!!! birthday July.4th

Velcro Soul said...

Decided to give it a try. I like not knowing what tomorrow's workout will bring.

Age - almost 53 - October 12

First attempt:

Sustituted squat jumps for final burpees
32:30, bu I have not worked out for about 12 weeks due to a back injury.

Thanks for the blog

Running T. said...

Jenni - I agree! Soreness is the how strength grows!!

SWiemers said...

21:22. Mod SU with leg lifts and did boy pu until number 13 of the third set. YIKES!!!!

Kimberly said...

22:13
Girl push ups in burpees but I did it!!

Jenni said...

I need your name for your birthday WOD. And your welcome! I like not knowing too. :)

Allison said...

19:31
ouch

Duke~N~Morghan said...

18:50. Last year was 23:00. I've been dreading doin this all weekend. Glad it's done!

Anna Jackson said...

35:31--- I resisted this workout all weekend because I honestly didn't know if I could do it-(- I hate burpees!!!!!) but I made myself today. I knew it would haunt me if i didnt gove it a go. I had to let myself be about finishing with form and drop the competitive nature on time. I have to say I am proud of every second, burpee and situp! I did it!

sickboiiii said...

18:01 but I cut out the last 50 burpees. that was effin killer!
