“Hi Jenni! I hope your back is healing well for you! I just wanted to say thank you again for the workouts and all of your hard
work. It’s easy to take these workouts for granted because they just show up
everyday on my phone but I know you work at it and for that I am thankful. Thanks again!” -Denise

    1. Thank you for the kind words. If you have any advice, I will take it 😉
      During my last pregnancies I did exclusively running workouts so this is new to me. Thanks again!!

    2. I did a lot of these workouts while pregnant last year. My main advice is to pause often to keep your breathing under vontrol, and stop when it feels uncomfortable. And no situps!

    3. Me too, slydegirl, and I agree. Not really any advice, just listen to your body and it sounds like you're doing that already!

  4. Ran 3.5 miles

    30# front squats
    18in step ups

    Jenni thanks for the workouts! Really appreciate it. Hope to see you back soon.

    1. Thank you! I think this is the best workout program ever!

  6. Made my own wod

    30 pu
    40 crunches
    50 lunges
    Followed by lots if biking & some paddle board time!

    Denise- thanks for introducing me to this site! You inspire so many people! Very blessed to call you a friend 🙂

    1. Aww–thanks Julie!! You are adorable and I feel just as blessed. See you next week!

  7. Beautiful weather here so I decided to hike Y Mountain about a 1 1/2 mile hike with 10 switch backs! Got a good leg and lung work out!

  8. Good work, Denise! You look great!

  9. I'll do this workout later tonight after the kids are in bed, but I want to give a resounding second to Denise's thoughts! Jenni, For years with two tiny ones I've been looking for workouts that are decent intensity for cardio, but also incorporate some fun lifting and the workouts are fun themselves. And most of all – not 45 minutes or an hour and a half – I don't have that time!! These are perfect to do every day, make me feel stronger and happier, and fit my life SO well. Thanks for your commitment to keeping this blog going strong — we SO appreciate it!!

  10. Ditto tht comment above! Thanks for this! Xoxo
