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.

Took me a total of 1 hour. I had a 3rd grader to get off to school while I did this. I ran the first mile in 10:41, and I only had time for .41 miles for the second run. I did ALL the push-ups, sit-ups and squats :)

Katie C. said...

Nicole said...

Heather aka Proud Mama said...

I am joining in for the first time. I scaled the workout, because it is my second day. Since I am new I also didn't keep time. I ran the miles and did 25 GPU, 50 BSU and 75 squats. I am pleased that I stuck with it even though I was slow and sluggish. I am strong and getting stronger. Thanks!

Bethany Ingram said...

Ian and Amy said...

I've been kind of slacking lately. That was the butt kicking I needed!

Bean said...

Didn't get it timed, since 1 year old woke up part way through and I had to break it up. But I got through the whole thing plus a 5 mile run (43 min).

The Merriman Family said...

I am subscribed to the emails (through the old blog name) but I haven't got emails in the last two days since the name change. I tried to subscribe again, but it said I was already a subscribed.

Kari F. said...

A lot of us had the same idea! I broke mine into 5 rounds. The push-ups were easier today. 44:20. Oh, and instead of running (kids everywhere) I did 10 minutes on the bike for the running, so 20 minutes total.

Kari F. said...

Oh and btw, Jen Roe you are a beast!

Jenni said...


Jenni said...

I am fixing that today. Sorry.

Jenni said...

7:07 first mile- PR
8:45 second mile- legs were jello
I felt so dizzy at the end. I hate that feeling because it isn't something you can just power through.
After 225 squats on Friday and 100 squats yesterday, those 300 were tough.
My time in November was 37:37 but I wasn't doing butterfly sit-ups and I wasn't doing butt to floor squats. I pushed hard today so I'm ok with that time.

Chris- 42:00
First run 7:30
Second run 8:45

jroweton said...

martha said...

Around 41:00ish....got caught by talkative neighbor during last round/run :(
Broke up into 4 rounds....next time need to time distance and runs more carefully

Kjnobes said...

Ran 1 mile
100 push ups
Broke sit-ups and squats into sets of 50
Ran out of time before work so took the double stroller out for a mile run in the evening.....so need to add 10 min to above time.

Denise said...

You amaze me! Great work-Jen Roe!!!

K=37:15. J=35:43

Diana in Maine said...

42:15 whew holy crap! Took the dog running with me and even he was screaming uncle on that last mile!!

Mrs. Stamp said...


Time not so great, but to be honest the fact that I actually completed this is what counts! The entire time was a battle with my mind that kept telling me to quit but I didn't!
Split the push ups, sit ups and squats into 3 sets
First mile done in 10 min flat
Last mile was more walk/jog/sprint as I was getting a bit dizzy with double vision . . . (dehydrated?) so it took me a little over 12 min

toughest wod I've done so far!

Lea said...

45:28 (plus ~5min untimed breaks)

1st mile: 9:59
PU, SU, Squats: 22:40
2nd mile: 10:49

had to walk home ~0.25mi after the 1st mile and a 2 minute break before the 2nd run....

K Hall said...

I gave myself a 50 minute time limit to complete this BEAST WOD and I finished just as my timer hit 49 minutes. I was thrilled and overjoyed as I fell to my mat!! It wasn't pretty but I felt like wonder woman afterwards.

Jennifer Gores-Todd said...

55:58 ran 1.4 miles to a park, did the rest (gpu) then ran home

Carolyn Wiese said...

Sooo....loving this! First day and I got through it! Thought I was going to throw up at the end, but totally stoked I got through the whole thing. Post baby belly/ hips/thighs are on they're way out the door.

Broke it up into 4 sets with a 15-20 sec. rest in between:
Push-ups (girl kind): 25
Sit ups: 50
Squats (oh geez...the ol legs are going to be killing tomorrow): 75
Run 1 and 2: used the elliptical

Rissa W said...

Inside workout thanks to the Texas temp of 103 today. Didn't break it up. 9:00 mile, 20 bpu with hands in closer to body 80 gpu, all squats butt to ground. Wanted to quit around 100, but didn't. My legs are now jelly!

Marguerite Spriggs said...

39:58 broke into 10 rounds of 10 pushups, 20 situps and 30 squats. Probably should have done 5 rounds and bumped up the #s but this one was tough!!!

Janosky said...

That was a brutal one! 52:23

Donette said...

Didn't time the runs, but they were mostly walks today with my kids. Rest of the ex's took 29:38. Broke it up in fourths.

Noelle Rowe said...

36:41 as rx'd. Good one!

Duke~N~Morghan said...


Melody Hunsaker said...

My plan was to get thru this in 45 min. My time was 44:59! Did 10 rounds of 10 pu, 20 su, and 30 squats. Couldn't' get thru sit ups so ended up doing half knees to elbows.

Lourdes said...

I saw this one and got so scared I ran a 5k instead!

blueyezcryin said...

Is anyone on here from the Colorado Springs area and looking for a workout partner?

Steph said...

Omg, did everything but the 2 nd run! 39:22

Gillian Monte said...

Switched to girl push-ups after 20, and I know I didn't do all the squats, I lost count, I think I did somewhere around 260 or so.

Didn't quite finish the last mile. Probably won't wait until the afternoon to go running outside again.

laura said...

41:06. Broke it up into 5 rounds of 20 pu, 40 su, 60 sq.
Actually ended up running 1.5 miles the 1st run due to my distance miscalculation so the last run was only .5 miles. I wouldve run a full 1 miles on the 2nd run but i had a time constraint & i already started late. Nothing like pushing myself to go faster when i have to be somewhere soon. I think i wouldve been slower if i had my usual workout block of time.

katyjrogers said...

40:30. Guessed on mile distance - ran hills.

25 gpu, 50 bsu, 50 sq, 25 gpu, 50 bsu, 100 sq, 25 gpu, 50 bsu, 50 sq, 13 gpu, 25 bsu, 50 sq, 12 gpu, 25 bsu, 50 sq. It would have been easier to split it into 5 rounds to start with. :) (20/40/60)

Shavanah Moya said...


Did 10 rounds of 10 push ups, 20 modified sit ups for diastasis, and 30 squats. Pushed the jogging stroller the last mile and I was craaaawling! Lol!

I had originally set a 50 min goal, the adjusted to 47 min and was happy I finished just under 46! That week I took off when I was out of town really messed up the progress I was making. I'm looking toward to getting back tks

Shavanah Moya said...
