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.

Forgot to post the weekly challenge on Friday!! 

THIS WEEK'S ADDED CHALLENGE: get 8 hours of sleep

5 Benefits of Sleep

1. Health: Not getting enough Z's can compromise your immune system making you more susceptible to viruses. Plus, living in a constant state of sleep debt can contribute to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. 

2. Smarts: Even though your body is at rest, your brain is buzzing. During sleep is when the brain sorts and processes information you absorbed while awake. 

3. Weight Control: Recent research indicates a relationship between insufficient sleep and inability to lose or even maintain weight. 

4. Coordination: Trying new activities that require coordination like step aerobics and playing the piano can be made more difficult after a bad night's sleep. 

5. Beauty: They don't call it "beauty sleep" for nothing. While you sleep, your body repairs itself. Experts say you need 8 hours of sleep to avoid puffy, bloodshot eyes, as well as dark under-eye circles and a pale washed-out complexion.

Thanks. Only once I didn't get enough momentum and fell back on my butt instead of standing up. 😆 Learned my lesson!
