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.

Any of you who think you are slow for not making it past the first 4 mins... Rich Froning, lay years winner of the crossfit , and leader in the open this year, just barely got past 8 mins... If I can do half what he does I think im doing ok :)
He had a total of 226... Not to shabby, I can't do that, that's for sure :)

2.5 rounds = 75 reps.

Pull ups were suuuuper slow. Mostly it was me, halfway up, looking longingly at the bar and mentally shaming my biceps. I gave in and assisted for the 2nd round pull ups and just made it through 3rd round thrusters when the timer went off.

Congrats everyone!!!
