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.

12:18 Woop! (includes time running from in my apt, down 3 flights to go outside to do ropes and 400m).

30# DL, 4# wall ball (GOTTA go get a real ball to do these...), 12" box (1" higher than I've been doing, but I need to get a box or a step!)
Run was a bit more than 400m, down then up hill.

I loved this one!!

Kirsten said...

Hey! I just found your site and it is exactly what I've been looking for: exercise at home (without a cheesy video), short but intense, and only competing against myself, thank you!!! I'm like you, 30s, 4 kids, at a good weight but definitely needed some toning and wanting to feel more fit. I'm so excited to start!

This was my first workout:
13:47ish but no wall ball and no 400 run (I was going to substitute with more jacks but 200 killed me), oh and the push ups were with knees to the ground and deadlift was with 45 bar.

Kirsten said...

oh! and b-day is 2/7

Anonymous said...

10:46!!! Oh my! I completed all the exercises without a single hitch, but when I got to the 400m dash! I am probably the worst long distance runner! I can run 100m and start foaming at the mouth...completely pathetic :)

Brent and Britta said...

Compared to 11:34 last september
Boy push-ups
20 lb. deadlifts
Jump rope

gilchrist said...

18:00 it probably was more but I'm not for sure since while I was doing my sit ups my 2 year old stopped my stop watch.

Duke~N~Morghan said...

9:47 compared to 13:05. And sweating like crazy!

Sara said...

Girl PU
12# wall balls
Jump squats...no box or steps

Totally winded.

Jen Morse said...

55# deadlifts
This time is without the run, I wanted to do a long run so sloped the sprint and did a 10km, at an easy pace, especially considering the amount of squats I've done in the past 3 days! :) love it!

Jen Morse said...

Skipped, not sloped, can anyone say proofread...lol

There Once Was A Bee said...

11:38. Wow. A good workout. Thanks!

Carolyn said...

16:35. Felt pretty good. I think I'm getting stronger. Yay!!

Jenelle said...

9:56. Boy PU, 12 lbs KB instead of wall ball. Awesome workout. Thought I would rest today because I am sore, but so glad I did the WOD! Thanks Jenni!

kto1s said...

Thanks for the bday love. Couldn't NOT do the workout after that!;)

65 lbs deadlift

Meagan said...

This is my first time doing anything related to CrossFit, but it will not be my last!!

11:16, with Jump Squats instead of box jumps and Dumbbell Thrusters instead of wall ball shots. I felt really nauseous during the last 20 jumping jacks, but I hadn't eaten yet so I'm thinking that's probably why...? Thanks for this!!

Jenni said...

60 lb deadlift

Trying to figure out how a heavier deadlift made me 3 minutes slower than last time and 4 minutes slower than Britta!!!

Tabitha Davis said...

as far as the thrusters are concerned are we actually supposed to do the same amount of thrusters as compared to wall balls? That seems a lot but I may be wrong.

Sarah said...

loved this!!!
gurly push ups
40lb deadlift
Thrusters for wall ball - made myself a wall but the glue isn't dry yet =)
jump rope anyone else have to stop 1/2 way through to pee during those?? yikes! the joys of motherhood
800 m bike

Bethany Ingram said...


after 1 mile swim.

Tabitha Davis said...

okay 14:59 45# lift, girl pu, jumps only ab 12" and glad for it since this was my first time and MAN was that tough! Thrusters instead too. Everything else rx'd. Then through around some baseball.

christina said...

HOLY MOLY! First WOD and omg Im a sweaty mess!


only 20 lbs on the deadlifts (not enough, will increase next time)

Dont have a thing to jump on so used my step.

Sarah said...


Everything as rx'd, but my deadlift was only 38#. Sit-ups were on a decline for a little extra. I don't have a 10# ball, but I tossed a 10# dumbell up in the air.

Great work-out.

Cassi said...

10:57 with mods of jump rope without rope, 2 steps for box jump, 10# thrusters instead of wall ball with a pause in the middle for a phone call with my hubby

Kim Stewart said...

Boy PUs
High knees for box jumps
rest as rx'd

Sarah said...

Still waiting to get some heavier weights. Boy push ups, 13 lb dead lifts, 12" box and, a soccer ball fir wall balls. 2:30 on the run, though, pretty good!

Josh, Kim & Kids said...

Boy pu!
20# dead lift
Thrusters instead of wall ball

Paul & Janice said...

First time here...dumb question...do you do each excercise completely, even if you have to rest to be able to finish it? In other words, can you get in 200 jumping jacks in increments, between other exercises?

Anonymous said...

I worried about leaving a comment but decided to check out the other comments first! I'm glad I did.

Push ups on my knees, 30lbs deadlift, 3 lb wall ball (my shoulders are crap!), all the jumping jacks and running!

Thank you! Now to run out and get the groceries before I pick up the kids from school!

My bday is Oct. 9, btw! ;)

SWiemers said...

14:15. 20lb db's on deadlift, thrusters instead of wall ball, jump rope.

I did this workout in the driveway while my 3-year old and 1-year old were playing in the driveway as well. I LOVE THIS BLOG!!! Jenni, you ROCK! :)

Jenni said...

Yay! Welcome Kristen! :)

Jenni said...

Yes. 1 thruster = 1 wall ball

Jenni said...

Ha ha! I have learned to pee my little heart out before I start any WOD!! ;)

Jenni said...

I would say, try to get the WOD done as prescribed if you can. If you get to an exercise and need a break and can get a few reps of the next exercise done while you recover, go for it and then come back to finish the set. Does that make sense?

Jenni said...

Thank you!! :)

Why can't I remember to post??? 12:43 done on Friday.
