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.

First set bpu burpees, last two sets kpu burpees.
Was just thinking last night that its been a while since we did burpees and was wondering if they get any easier. They were easier today, but still not fun!!

Then
20lb thrusters
Girl push-ups for bar burpees
Counted down in reps... 35,30,25,20,15,10

Don't know if that was just a hard workout or if I was just exhausted from the run. Either way, that was a good tough & sweaty workout. ;)

I had finished the first 3 rounds and was just getting started on my 25 burpees when balloons (from yesterday's birthday) started getting sucked into and tangled in the fan! It took me 1:58 to get not even halfway through the wod and 15 minutes to untangle the fan...

Theresa Bryant said...

What are bar facing burpees? Do you do a burpee and jump over a bar when u jump upthen turn and go back over? That would be aweful! They are already hard enough!

Tammy Kelly said...

12:22
as rx'd except backward counting - did 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10 instead - I sincerely hate burpees!! All bpu, however not as low as I'd like to be eventually - lots of room for improvement!!

Tammy Kelly said...

Ooops plus 45 minutes of walking!

Nissa V said...

Why do I still get caught off guard by the hero WODs? I thought this one looked relatively easy. HA! 20:04! I'm sure I have the highest time today.

I'm not in my cool basement anymore...it was about 78* in our temp quarters this morning, and I always suck in the heat. I did a lot of stopping to breathe (light-headed). I was seriously wondering how badly my 5 year old would freak out if I passed out. We might have to have a talk.

But I did it!

PS I would have to think that doing the counts backwards is not the same things as doing them forwards. Much like Jenni encourages us to do the sprints & rests, thrusters, etc as rx'd. Doing more when you're already tired is the point. Just my two cents.

Ronna James said...

12:07
25# thrusters

Katie Fuller said...

10:51

ran 1 mile after

Beattie Family said...

14:45 barely made my goal of under 15. I don't know why, but every time I see burpees in the WOD I know I'm going to be on the higher time side! Oh well, did it as RDex and I am literally dripping!

paola said...

15:07

Jessica Timmons said...

First WOD since straining lower back last Thursday teaching KB. Tried to baby it a bit, moving a little slowly, lighter weight. But it's feeling good!

no jumps on last burpee set and no pushups...do burpees always have pushups?

Mrs. Stamp said...

12:26

tried the "bow and flex" for the first 15 burpees - (it works well in socks on hardwood)
rest of burpees to plank (my moto was one at a time and they weren't pretty!)
20# thrusters

Kate Huether said...

15:28 with 30#. Finals week and I am exhausted... quite a few catch my breath moments in there.

one of us said...

17:06 as rx'd. That extra jump over the bar really slowed me down. Blah.

Andrea McElvaine said...

12:03 jumped over rolled up mat full up burpees to ground and pushup. thrusters with 2x15lb dumbbells. so tired and sore from yesterdays wods and long day at work. can barely type.

The Opposite of Imagination said...

13:03 as rx'd... so hard.
Thanks!

laura said...

9:37 as rxd. I really didnt feel like working out tonight, but seeing everyone's posts & how challenging it was i really wanted to see how much it sucked too lol! And boy did it suck, hate burpees but sooooo glad i did the wod. I even made it under my 10 min goal. Had to take lots of breaks & had to push @ the end to make my goal but very happy!

Jana Pace said...

12:50 as rx'd bpu

Jenni said...

10:17
Killer.

Alison Ramey said...

13:30. Followed by 100m sprint, 6 push ups, 6 sit ups, 6 squat jumps x4

Jenni said...

You don't need a bar, just a line on the floor. I have used a broom, tonight I used my sons crutch because it was already laying close by. You can tape a line on the floor or use anything!

Erika Sullivan said...

So I put off this workout until later in the day and it was a mistake. I gave up and decided to do a 15-minute workout from my Nike Trainer app. My goal is to do a Hero WOD during this challenge! (Not sure if I've done one yet!)

Lora Halttunen said...

9:11

Allison said...

11:29, 24 lb thrusters and regular burpees due to lack of space. Either way burpees will always be a challenge!

Nikki French said...

10:30ish - did this one on May 23, with the May 23rd one combined. Our shoulders were screaming! I really like those burpees!

Katie C. said...

I.Hate.Burpees!
Did about 13 regular burpees, the rest were step back and jump forward. It's the most regular burpees I've ever done, so that's a good thing!

Shavanah Moya said...

40# thrusters. Had to stop a few times to entertain the baby and had to jump around her while she was crawling.

That was tough!!

Kari F. said...

Thalyta said...

I am still amazed at anyone who can do more than 10 burpees in a row- so hard!! It takes me forever!

KPgr8ful said...

11:15 as rx'd. Whew! is an understatement :-)

Berta Crowe said...

17:41 - 24 lb thrusters - I found I out the hard way that my stomach is sunburned. Yeah...ouch...thanks, burpees. Struggled through the last set of burpees - my timer was at 12:11 after completing 30 thrusters, so you can see - it was a struggle!

Nissa V said...

Somebody has to be, I guess. today you, tomorrow me. we are both faster than all the people sitting on the couch! congrats for finishing!

beckylinn said...
