Mama Sana Life

I’m Julie. A 28 year old mama, daughter, sister, friend, and lover. Actor turned pre-Med and environmental science student. Big city dweller to small town settler. Certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. “Mama sana” means “healthy mama”; Mama Sana Life is a healthy lifestyle blog for all mamas. It’s helpful, inspiring, and most of all, attainable. 


In honor of #workoutwednesday (yes, I HAVE to put the hashtag, okay!?), I'm sharing three of my favorite, go-to high intensity interval training, or HIIT, workouts. For days when "I have no time" is the most qualified excuse, these are the secret weapons! They are short and sweat. I say short and sweat, cause, although short, you 'gone sweat! 

Like Tabata; 9 exercises done in 6, 20 second sets with 10 second rest periods in between
-Jumping Jacks (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off, repeated 6 times)
-Push ups
-High Knees
-Tricep Dips
-Sit ups
-Mountain Climbers
-Alternating Lunges
This is a basic formula for a HIIT workout. Feel free to interchange and mix it up!


7 exercises done in 4, 30 second sets with 30 second rest periods in between
-Clean & Press (30 seconds on, 30 seconds off, repeated 4 times)
-Plank Row
-Alternating Lunges with Bicep Curls
-Arnold press
-Goblet Squat

So, there you have it! Three HIIT workouts in your back pocket for "those days". Get your sweat on, mamas!
