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.

3 rounds for time of:
15 Thrusters, 20 lbs
30 Butterfly sit-ups

Compare to 01.30.12

Hiit Mamas Julie, Melanie, and Andrea
Manitoba, Canada

"So my girlfriends and I have started this challenge together and thought we would send you a pic of our workout today.  It doesn't seem to want to melt here in Manitoba, Canada.  We decided, while everyone is tired of the extra long winter this year, we are just going to embrace it and go hard anyways in the snow!!  We go some days outside while the kiddies play around us.  We have become closer as friends and we feel we are setting a great example for our kids that we can have fun outside and stay healthy. We agreed we would try this 90 day challenge. So far, we have been getting together the days we can and doing it ourselves when we can't.  I am currently training for a half marathon on top of this and find that I am faster and stronger by the day because of Hiit Mamas!!  Every Monday night after the kids have gone to bed, the three of us also go to hot yoga while our hubbies stay at home with the kids (all 3 of us have that wonderful support and male cheerleaders)!  As you see we are very active!  We love your workouts and would really like to be accountable.  So it helps to have each other.  I find I have always been in ok shape, but want to get to a level I have never been before!  I would love to send you a before and after pic soon!
All this being said, thanks for the workouts, I truly love the fitness community.  We all want to see everyone healthy and happy.  That is what it's all about!!! Thanks again, Julie C."

I'm so glad I checked in today! (I haven't been as regularly because I'm getting so pregnant, I'm finding I need to modify practically everything now.) Good luck with all the legal stuff, that's gotta be a headache for you.

Rachael said...

I just got some new weights and I was wondering what the results are from using heavier weights. Will that make me bulky? Just wondering if I should push for heavier weight, or if the rx'd weights are designed for females.

Thank you for posting these workouts, and for doing everything you can to keep them going!

Theresa Bryant said...

unfortunately I did tuesday's workout yesterday with a 3 mile run and made it through 18 minutes. Today I attribute my poor time to a VERY VERY RAW coccyx! Anyone else get that from doing sit-ups so fast?

kasey said...

jenni....thank you for all the trouble you are going to for all of us. i have been doing your work outs since labor day, so almost 9 months in and i can say it is now just a way of life for me. even if you had to stop for some reason i now know i can do this and i know the fundamentals of how. that i don't need a gym, or their class schedules. i can do it on my terms. forget my body transformation, that isn't even the biggest part for me. it has changed my entire life. my confidence, my outlook, my energy, my relationships with my kids and my husband, my patience, EVERYTHING!!! So thank you!!!! It has done more than you can know.

kasey said...

rachael...up that weight. no you will not get bulky. but it will make a big difference in the lean muscle you will build. i know a lot of women who work out at our local crossfit box and are lifting very large weights and they are not bulky.

First WOD ever! Sit-ups were half sit-ups, my abs are still a work in progress, just could not get to full trying to go so fast. Really looking forward to adding your workouts to my routine!

I love these workouts! Thanks so much! This is only week 3 for me but I've been doing them with my sister who lives a long distance away and we text each other daily. There aren't many excuses to be made when a workout only takes 5-20 min and you still feel it the next day! Even in 3 weeks the sprints helped me shave a munite off my 5K PR and I finished at 27:03! Not bad for a mid-30's mom of 4!

Thank you for this blog!! I have been following u for a couple months now, and my strength and endurance on my long runs have improved tremendously! I'm running faster and longer than I did in cross country in high school. Thanks for what you do! I'm glad this is free, but I would pay if it wasnt!

This was my first workout. I did not even bother timing myself. I used a weight bar #25 lbs. This workout sounded easy but it kicked my butt. I hope to keep it up and get back into shape. Thanks for your blog!

Rachael said...

Yes, I get it too. I fold my yoga mat in half and put it under my tailbone. Makes it much better!!

Rachael said...

Good to know. Thanks for replying!

Kari F. said...

This was the second workout of the day, did 5-17 first. 6:08, had to stop and stretch out a kink in my hip, but finished much stronger with that stretch. Well worth the time. Plus my sit-ups are getting amazingly strong! Thanks!

These workouts are amazing, and I'm motivated to continue because you've taken out the guesswork. Much appreciated! Blessings to you, Jenni!
