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.

Not sure I'll have time for this today so I'm subbing 100 squats for now and hoping I can get the run in between errands and activities today.

Kat Miller said...

Wow, exhausted! I've never done 150 pushups in the same day!

I just did the following workout.

3 front squats

I could have sworn that this was the for today but now it is different. Maybe in my early morning sleepiness I went to an old workout?

I will save this one for later today.

Staci Owens said...

Had a little incident with my water cup and the treadmill, but made it thru all 3 rounds! Great workout! Have a great day everyone.

Holy cow. This was tough. 1000 meters intimated me. I did 1000 meters round 1, 800 meters round 2, and 600 meters round 3. 45:45

katyjrogers said...

April Burke said...

Question from someone who just stumbled upon this blog through pinterest. Do you need to be in fairly good shape to start crossfit? Or can anyone do it? I've reached a point in life at 31 where I know dieting is stupid but I hate conventional exercise. Crossfit seems to be exciting enough to keep me interested.

Jen Morse said...

As rx'd
I do love these running wod's!

Jen Roe, you are crazy fast! Do you do long run's, marathons etc? I assume you are a long time runner?

Katie said...

Ronna James said...

45:07 as rx'd.

Great workout.

Staci Owens said...

To April Burke...anyone can start this program at any fitness level. You can adjust the prescribed weights to suit your fitness level. Its so nice to wake up and have a workout waiting for you. Good luck!

Valentine said...

Kelli A, that is what I saw too early this morning! I was a bit surprised when I was ready to do it and the WOD changed... odd.

50:29. That was a good, tough one. The pushups slowed me down a little.

Jenni said...

Sorry about the mix up this morning everyone! I had accidentally used today's date for Thursday's WOD so they both posted this morning. I fixed it but some did Thursday's and they can just do today's tomorrow. My bad.

Becky said...

First day for me! Wow, I thought I was in mildy decent shape with at least some stamina after running 3-4 miles per day 3-5 times per week, but this kicked my butt! I guess that's the idea. I completed all of the workout as written but it took me 1:19:30 :(
Hope to see some improvement in the future!

Anita Schlabach a.k.a. The Untamed Mouse said...

48 minutes. So slow! I feel like I must have done something wrong.

Carla Thompson said...

April, I am a 27 y/o who has not worked out regularly a day in her life. I started from couch potato and I've been doing alright. I'm slower than most, and my form is a little wonky, but I've managed to keep up alright. This has been the only workout plan I've come across that I actually enjoy doing. It's tough, but it's different every day, which keeps it from getting boring. Good luck! You can do it!

Jen Roe said...

Jen M.

I do run 6 days a week for mental health (4 busy kids). I do local 5k, 10k and the occaisional 1/2 marathon or triathlon. I was a college distance runner a VERY long time ago.

Gina Tate said...

54:00 as rx'd
Will I ever be a runner? lol I didn't feel my h like a hero but I did complete it..there were points when I was unsure I was ever gonna make it back home! definitely a good one!

All Unmodified push ups

Aub said...

You can start this no matter what your fitness level is. You're only going to get stronger by doing this and you're only competing with yourself and your previous times.

Jenni said...

Dang Jen Roe! I just killed myself and you still beat me by 10 minutes doing boy push-ups!!! You inspire me. Give me one more year..... ;)

Jenni said...

44:18
As RXed.
Deficit girl push-ups.
Finished everything but the last push-ups in 40 minutes but then took 4:18 for 50 stupid push-ups.

Gillian Monte said...

Managed to catch myself a cold and couldn't bring myself to do the runs so did 200 jump ropes in place of 1000m run. Did girl push ups.

Alea Herrmann said...

Did 800 meters instead of 1000. 40:00

Jen Morse said...

Jen R. Thats great! Running is def good for mental health! I have 3 kids who stretch my patience daily :)
I may catch you someday, I've only been running for around 5 years now... But I love it :)

ethiopia said...

first day at this. So glad i found crossfit mamas! time- 42:48

Mandy said...

Finally back from whole family flu, invasion of the in-laws, whole family stomach flu, and hockey tournament... Or, as I decided today to call it, too many excuses-get back to it and stop being lazy:-(

50:15, and I skipped the last run because the kids needed to be tucked in. Did all the cfsu and push ups, though. Girl push ups.

Feels good to be back at it. I missed feeling awesomely miserable :-)

Jen said...

45:15, girl pu - love the running days!

Kim V said...

The Roberts Family said...

Went hiking today for over an hour, 2.27 miles. Maybe will do this WOD this weekend

Michelle said...

1:14:58. Killer! I get so motivated by the "hero" work outs. I even got an unexpected text from my hero ( AKA boyfriend) during the workout who's in basic training right now! made my day :)

Alea Herrmann said...

Awesome and absolutely motivating :)!

The Fuller's said...

Lavi said...

Hello! I'm new here and i have some questions (wasn't sure where to post this). I read the faq page but can you please let me know what the VI Shake is and where could i buy it? Also, i have been sedentary for the past 7-8 years...and i mean no work out at ALL. I feel that my body is starting to fall apart so have to do something about it. I am 30 years old, i have a 17 year old baby, 5'6 and 138lbs. What would be a good starting point for me? I know you said to do the WOD if we are new here...but i can barely do 3 push ups...that's how out of shape i am!! I appreciate your help!

mommaof5 said...

Rough day..
43...only did 2 rounds GPU
Didn't runas much as I should have....but I just couldn't make myself move.

Tambra M said...

30::41

erin.dwyer said...

46:40 with all regular push-ups! I started it anticipating having to drop to my knees at some point and was so proud I managed to not have to :)

I've been doing these for a few weeks but having been posting my results. Love these workouts; looking forward to them actually gets me through my day!

bkbishopfamily said...

47:47

not gonna lie, i've been dreading this wod all day long...frist i wasnt gonna do it at all, then i was just going to do 25 ea su&pu for each round. then this evening after dinner i got on and read through the comments and you ladies inspired me, yet again, with your times & determination (thankyousomuch!) and in the end i threw all caution to the wind and just went for it-with (not great) but better results than i expected.

mpu and slightly msu

only time will tell if i will be able to drag my body out of bed in the am for tomorrows wod-already feeling a bit stiff...

Heidi Gallagher said...

Hannah said...

51:43

Only ran about 850 meters each time instead of 1000 though.

Did more than half of the pushups against the wall each round... those are so hard for me.

SO glad this is done.... before I even started I thought I would quit about halfway through but I'm so happy I didn't!

Aimie said...

Ran on a very slippely snow in pouring rain. The guys going to an d from hockey practice were asking about my sanity when I did the situps and push ups at the hall entrance.

Deeneese said...

That was great! Took me a lot longer than the rest of you, but I completed it all, proud of myself for that.... 60 min....

Christy Homan said...

46:36 Can you say Jell-o arms and quivering gut? Or maybe it's quivering arms and Jell-o gut?!?!?! Wonderful feeling when I was finished with this one!

kewallace said...

Did not have a great measure for how far 1000 meter run would be...ran 7 laps around a track (basketball court) which is WAY more then .6 miles (1000 meters). Did the workout in 72 minutes...rough workout!

Bethyfly said...

I have truly never run so far in a single day. My push ups may not have been very low but I did it!
