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.

Monday 07.08.13


3 rounds of:
Power snatch, 20 lbs
Box jump, 18" box
Thrusters, 20 lbs
Pull-ups (assist as needed)

"Faith" has the same format as Cat Fight. In this workout you move from each of 5 stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of "rotate," the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.

Add your points and post them to comments.

no caffeine
I want to remind all my Challenge Mamas to do your before picture, measurements and weight today. Very important. Then put your scale far, far, far, far away where it will never be used until Day 90! Did you know that constantly checking your weight and worrying about your weight contributes to belly fat!?!???! The stress hormone cortisol is directly linked to abdominal fat storage. Besides, when you are strength training, sometimes you can gain weight even though you are burning fat because you are adding muscle which weighs more. The number is not important. What is important is being strong, fit, and healthy and looking fierce naked, right?!? 
I also wanted to tell all of you about Project 10. Every week in 2013, Visalus is giving $10,000 to 10 people who have lost 10 pounds. Here is the link to enter: https://challenge.com/enter/project_ten

All of you who have just completed our last 90 Day Challenge, please send me your pictures, results, and testimonials so that you can inspire all of our new comers on their first 90 Day Challenge! califitmamas@gmail.com

And...if I have missed any of you on our Challenge Roll Call, just let me know when you post your time and I will add you! :)

Two years ago I was in the best shape of my life. Now, after some serious medical and other issues, I'm at my worst. Today, I start going back to the best me I can be.

With modifications and I didn't do the power snatch.
Today, I am stronger than yesterday.

Lesa said...

Totally dying.
Giving up caffeine did not go well. Had a HUGE headache all day. Gave in and drank a little pop but didn't help. Finally got meds and started feeling better. Didn't realize I was so addicted.

315 with assisted pull-ups

laura said...

Did my kids speed workout with ladder drills, sprint cones, & quick feet workouts before this.

315. 20# db alternating hand snatch, 20# thrusters, 12" box jumps. Ok, 1st time not using my hated 18" box but i really didn't want to workout today so i convinced myself that to do it by going smaller with the box, as my nemisis burpees & box jumps were in this wod. Glad i did it tho, but did get in quite a bit more jumps than usual in!
