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.

Getting things organized for my birthday tomorrow, but still got the time to do this while the kids are taking a nap :)

12.04

Swinged a 35 pound kettlebell, and used about 17 pounds for thrusters, but got to swap some push-ups to sissy-girlyones...

Only 7 rounds? Why not 70? ;) This one was deceiving in its difficulty for me - very good challenge.

Time probably is not good, but: 16:30
The burpees absolutely kill me. They take me
f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

Mods: 15# thrusters (up'd it! Yay!)
Used 10# for kettlebells

Fastest round: 1:36 (last set - yeehaw!)
Slowest: 2:58 (set 5...mental push needed!)

Thanks Jenni!

Ugh! Day two and i am wiped! Does this get easier??!!

16:57- not great but i fid it!!

Sarah said...

Oops, forgot to mention that i only have 3kg (6.6 lb) hand weights right now. I used both for the thrusters and a single for the kettle bells.

Well, Jenni, decided to go ahead and start this today, not wait until next week. So, this was my very first WOD. I've been lifting weights for almost a year, but not doing a ton of cardio. Still, I expected this to be pretty doable. Well, it was doable, but took me forever!! 36:12. I did do boy pushups for all pushups and burpees (except for one round where I did girl.) And did 30# thrusts for 1-5, then dropped to 10# for 6-7. I'll stick with a lower weight until I get used to this! Also used 15# for swings 1-5, 10# for 6-7. Hope no one is laughing at my time. Hey, I wanted to quit after only 4 rounds, so to actually get through all 7 was a miracle.

Turning 33 on 9/24.

9:36 compared to 18:09! Wow, I have come a long way!

I ended up doing 8 rounds in my sleep deprived state!!! 12:52, 20# thrusters, boy PU, rest as Rxd. Feeling like I should've upped the swings to 20lbs as well.

Sarah H said...

First cross fit workout - WOW!! 5 rounds at around 16:30 - the kids stopped the timer once... It was harder than I thought....definitely need to work on burpees...
I finished the last two rounds after clearing the room - hard to focus with 5 boys watching!

Second day of the WOd and it took me 15 min give or take a few seconds! I love this and it was hard! I'm a distance runner yet I'm totally beat right now! YAY! Hope to see improvements!

Jenni said...

20 lb thrusters

Jenni said...

Compare:

Both with less weights. :)

AmyP said...

23:03 all girl push ups, 18lb thrusters and 15.5 kettle-bell. I actually used an adjustable dumbbell for the kettle bell but the weight plate had a cut out so I could grip it and swing it just like a kettle bell so it worked out great. Man those burpees are the hardest!

On thrusters, first two rounds were with 20lb db's. Next three rounds with 15lb-er's. Last two were with 10lb-er's. With swings, 15lb-er's whole time. Rest as RX'ed.

Thanks Jenni!!!! I so look forward to these workouts!!!!

Rachel said...

This was my first time doing a Crossfit workout. It was hardly graceful, but I finished in 23:19. I'm so happy to see Crossfit workouts designed with women in mind using inexpensive equipment.

Rachel said...

Tabitha Davis said...

Alright this is my first time doing this. I can NOT tell you how excited I was to find this site! I've been out of working out for a while bc last February on my third week doing p90x all of a sudden I couldn't breath. apparently I became an asthmatic. Anyhow it's taken me this long to get my asthma under control and I was DETERMINED to get back in shape (cause after all that I gained 30 lbs I worked so hard to lose)..ANYHOW. I'm Tabitha my bday is 04/18/88 and this was my first WOD. I finished in 15:30 thrusting 45 lbs and swinging 25. Around rep 3 and a half or four I almost gave up but then I prayed and remembered I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!! and I finished out. It took A LOT...kicked my tail..but I LOVE IT! Ugh! What am amazing feeling!!!! Thanks so much!

Tabitha Davis said...

oh and started with boy puch ups but ended with girl and started with normal burpees ended with my own version of modified burpees not sure what the "technical" modified is but I stepped out instead of jumping out and jumped in like normal.

Jen Morse said...

19:09, Did 10 reps in the first round, 7 in the rest, girl pu's and 30# for the kb swings. I feel like I'm soo slow, but hey, it can only get better! :) This is a great site!

Thanks so much!

Andrea @ Eat Run Work Play said...

My first crossfit workout at home, with my 3 year old. I did squats instead of thrusters since I don't have the equipment at home. I also did 10# kettle.
Time 14:40.

Andrea @ Eat Run Work Play said...

Any other suggestions for something you can do at home besides thrusters?!?

Jenni said...

All you need for thrusters are 10 lb dumbbells which you can get at Target for around $12. Until then, you can use soup cans, a broom stick, etc.

Keri said...

35 lb KB for thrusters and swings
Boy pushups

I am new to crossfit. This completed my first full week. I am a runner! Ran a couple miles of hills for a warm up and then my time was 30 mins. I did bump all sets up to 10. This is tough!
