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.

Wednesday 05.29.13

Every 5 minutes for 6 rounds:
Sprint 200 meters, for time
Run 400 meters

Rest the remainder of each five minute period. Post 200 meter sprint times to comments.

How this will look:
Start timer, sprint 200 meters, note time (lap button) and slow down and run 400 more meters. Rest  until the running clock hits 5 minutes. Reset timer and repeat 6 times total.

Oh summertime ;) slept too late to be on track this morning and try treadmill while 2.5 yr old played in basement. Didn't work out because she kept coming over to me and I was nervous she was going to get too close.

I did a no-equipment workout instead ("At Home Chipper"). 22:07

Kirsten said...

not to bring up the legal stuff again, but did someone take the califitmamas domain name just to stop you from it? it just looked a little fishy. anyway, so so glad i found cfmamas and i echo everyone else's comments: keep up the good work! not since i did water aerobics in college (and found the same helpful, supportive environment) have i been able to find an exercise regime that i've been so passionate about (and the results here have been way better!), and part of the reason why i love it is the fact that i can keep up with it at home and at my own convenience. all the best to you, jenni, and if they bother you again, just change the name to something like "kittens and bunnies for the lazy" and that'll throw them off the scent ;)

It was hard doing this on the treadmill. I think the timing is right. But at least I did it.

Hi there! Happy to see you posting times. Great way to track progress!

I modified the time slightly. I had limited time today so I did them every 4 minutes.

I also did 10 pushups each round after I ran the 400. This is definitely a track workout. I would not have enjoyed this on a treadmill.

Rachael said...

So being the non-runner that I am, my times are pitifully slow compared to you ladies, but I'm so proud I finished! I had to walk some after the sprint to catch my breath, but I still finished the total 600 meters in the five minutes. Yay! Not as rx'd for sure, but I gave it good effort!

Sprint times: (some are approximate because my treadmill is a super basic model that you have to wait for it to click through all the options before it shows you the distance)

As rx'd until last round when it started pouring. The baby and I took shelter and my husband and I took turns running the last 400m. That wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I actually had fun!! Thanks for this one!

Amy said...

Loved this one!!!! I was at exactly one minute for all but number 3, I was 58 sec (must have been downhill!) Thanks!

Well, that was simply AWEFUL!! Blew it on my first sprint and slowed way down in the middle. Total times were about 3 1/2 min. The 1 1/2 reat was amazing!!!

mbrous2 said...

Lap timer malfunction. Total distance was 4.04km.
As rx'd...I think each sprint was about 1 minute. Outside run, walked during rest periods.

Becky said...

After seeing everyone's times I went back and remeasured my distances. I know I'm slow but I didn't think I was that slow!! My sprints were 300 meters and runs were about 450 meters. Still slow but better :)

Ran every 4 minutes since I finished every run at 2:30, rested 1:30 then went again. Great workout. Starting my training for the Spartan Beast in October. 13+ miles 25+ obstacles. I am so excited to see how my body will handle that. Any pointers?

Went to the track for this one, I usually guesstimate along my busy street, wanted to validate how close I was....

Sprint portion was uphill on grass, plus dragging my slow @$$ dog for first 3 rounds until I tied him to a tree and just let him bark about being left behind.

pulling dog along behind me:
1:12 (2:01)
1:06 (2.39)
1:14 (2:33)

without dog:
1:00 (2:52)

route in reverse so that sprint was on the flat and the run was up/down hill:
0:42 (3:11)

I had a major user/equipment malfunction on the first round. It doesn't seem like my Garmin does laps properly and it stops the timer when I stop moving. I'll have to play with the settings. Because I was fussing with it I can't tell if I reset my watch after the first round and thus don't have the times for it, or if I only did 5 rounds. At any rate, I did another run with my 5 year old as "her workout" which was 600m of sprints, resting every 50m for several seconds. She's pretty fast when she runs, though!

KPgr8ful said...

All about :36 w/ 4 min. rests. (Outside in neighborhood)

Ran 200m, walked until 5 minutes (not necessarily 400m) then ran again. Way too hot outside for me but I did it anyway. Proud of myself for trying!
