Welcome to Hiit Mamas! 

For those of you who don’t know, Hiit stands for High Intensity Interval Training which is another way to describe what we have always been doing without using certain key words, if you know what I mean. I hope all of you like the new name. This one will not be changing. You can find us for now at www.hiitmamas.blogspot.com. You can contact me at hiitmamas@gmail.com.

  1. Thanks again for all your hard work. I love your blog and the supportive community of women that follow it.

  2. Done!! But I didn't write down the reps. Thank you for this site!! It keeps me from getting into the boring rut routine! I have been slacking a little bit lately, but I still love knowing I can come on here and there will be a good different workout 🙂

  3. 373
    Mix of boy push-ups and girl push ups.

    Thanks for keeping the site going!!

  4. Thank you for your perseverance with this site! Great job!

    405 was my score.

    (Note to self: went to free session at a crossfit gym on Sat for some coaching and learned how to do better push-ups with hands in closer to torso to recruit more muscle groups and they are tough for me)

  5. I follow your site everyday. I tell everyone I know about it too. Have to say I love the name. I'm on a running team called the Hot Mommas and I work out with HIIT Mommas. It's perfect. 'Id HIIT that' should be your next tank.

  6. Can someone give a little more detail on the how to of this workout?? I get that it is essentially 16 minutes total but it's how to incorporate the exercises into each 20 second burst.

    1. You start with back extensions. Do as many as you can for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat this for 8 rounds and then immediately move to your next exercise for 8 rounds.

  7. Back extensions: 81 total
    Push-ups: 57 total– these were harddddd!
    Sit ups: 63 total
    Squats: 87 total
    288 reps all together.
    Great WOD

  8. This is how i did the workout today

    Do back extensions for 20 sec then rest for 10 sec. Record score for each interval. Repeat for 7 more intervals. Continue with remaining exercises in the same manner.

  9. 369-

    I tried bringing my arms in closer- much harder! Thanks for the tip Denise!

  10. 465 total
    Sub 20# row / rev fly for back extension
    47 boy push ups / 48 girl
    62 crunches / 30 sit-ups (tailbone!!!!)
    138 squats

  11. Jenni- I so appreciate your commitment and dedication with all your "difficulties " lately. Know you are apprciatated and you are doing good for others!

  12. BE 132
    PU 95
    BFSU 58

    Compared to:

    This time my back was absolutely killing me, need to work on that. PU started off 2 rounds boy, last 6 girl. BFSU were with arms crossed on chest today. Squats were butt to ground. Even though my number is lower I am pleased because of the strength I have gained to go deeper and harder with the exercises!

    Thanks again Jenni for all the effort you put into this site! I know that I wouldn't be where I am physically without it!

  13. 408

  15. Jenni, thanks for the workouts!! I've always gone through periods of being active then inactive off and on. But since I've found your blog, I've been exercising an average of 5 days a week since the beginning of January. This is the longest I've stayed with anything ever!! I love the variety of the workouts. Thank you so much for all you do! Thanks to your blog I'm in the best shape I ever have been!

  33. 401 – 88 FEWER; However….

    BE's were W/arms out, superman style VS under chin
    PU's were All Unmodified and up by 5 VS all Modifieds…
    SU's were Butterfly style rather than arms stretch to toes
    Squats fewer by 19… a little deeper but should have been greater improvement here….

    Love these Tabata's!

    Thanks again for all of the time and thought you put into this blog. I really look forward to the workouts! With little to no preparation, I was asked to hike Half Dome because somebody cancelled…. It was no problem and I am coninced it's due to Heather Foster and your blog! Thanks again ladies!
