    I know this is day 1 and it is the 16th of July…I have done several of the other workouts and am not doing them in the same order they were presented.  This one is KILLER!!!!!  Don’t let Jessica’s wonderful demeanor fool  you!  I love how you had to use Peanut repellent in this one.  Love Peanut!  This workout is a do again for sure!!!

      That’s OK Karen – feel free to find the order that works best for you. What counts is that you do them 🙂 Glad you liked this one! Way to go!

    Just finished this after doing Day 8 2x, Ab routine that followed and this.  Feeling pumped and ready for the day!!  Yeah!!

  6. I made it through the second this morning also!  Whew!  I’m down 13 pounds from beginning of the year though – it’s paying off!

  7. Done 1st day of the new adventure!! I lost almost 20 pounds, feel lighter and stronger than ever!!!
    Thank you Jessica!

  8. OMG! Second day of #SpringAhead  challege … this one was a KILLER!  I persevered and made it through but I definitely utilized that pause button.  Whew!  I am dripping sweat and know that this work out will work on my stamina.  Thanks for the great workout and I got a good laugh at Peanut’s antics.

  9. Day 2 Video done. This was tough and had to modify a couple, but still felt them all. Got to get my walk in later today.

  10. I’m coming in way, way late! But I’m starting the 30 Day Flat Abs Challenge today. Day 1- complete! I’m a huge fan of Jessica and Peanut (both so inspirational)! Thanks for all y’all do!

  11. Once again I finished this thinking “I CANNOT BELIEVE I JUST DID THAT?!”
    PS– Peanut you are the best. hahaha!

  12. Nearly fainted 🙁

  13. WOW!! This was so tough that I barely made it thru I’m still shaking!! Couldn’t get the 8 minute ab & back workout in WHEW! What an intense and sweaty routine I can’t wait for the kickboxing workout tomorrow, Thank you jessica 🙂

    Completed this workout today since I couldn’t get it done on Thursday. I did better this time on the floor exercises. Thanks!

  15. Man, it’s apparently been a year since I’ve done this workout! It seems tougher than it should have been for my thighs, but I haven’t worked out regularly for about a month! Been moving to a new house! But reading back at the last times I did this one, it was still tough then! Still kicks my butt! Glad I got a workout in today though. Slowly but surely I will get back into my routine of 5-6 times a week! Thanks Jessica, and Peanut!

  16. Wow, this workouts made me real sweaty! I could hardly complete some of the exercises (and I’m not a beginner!)/ Jessica, thanks for the awesome WO!

  17. sweating! some of the exercises i did NOT like. but i tried my best. Perhaps make the videos more professional by sending the dog on a long walk?

    • Go to her website. She has professional videos if you’d like to buy those. These are “courtesy” videos that she’s provided free of charge…which is awesome.

    • These videos exude professionalism. Getting rid of the dog defeats the purpose. This channel has a relaxed workout setting showing people they can workout at home with or without distractions. It’s real life. Plus, Peanut is her masot 🙂 .

    • They’re free videos and the dog is a quirk.

  18. Killer workout, Jessica! That one caught me by surprise. 🙂

  19. Great workout! Had to take some breaks, but felt very good at the end. Thanks Jessica!
