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.

When you say 20# thrusters. Do you mean two 10# db's or two 20# dbs? First day. I think I did it in under 20 mins.

So I just realized I did 1/2 mile each round instead of just 500 meters. No wonder my time was so long. ( I saw 500 meters and thought 1/2 mile instead.)

eliptical for run
accidentally did 20 30# thrusters instead of 30 20# lol
did knee push ups

did a bad thing and stepped on the scale today as I felt my clothes were fitting better and I gained 2 lbs . . .:( hoping it really is just muscle mass! I will keep going no matter what - even if I don't loose weight, I know what I'm doing is a benefit to my health and that's what's important :D

Yes. You should add your total lifted weight! :)

Jenni said...

Listed weight is always total lifted weight. So 20 lbs would be two 10 lb dumbbells.
