  • I thought the length of the plank was perfect the way you did it, beginning with 15 and now increasing to 30. Thank you!

  • Have loved having a new routine every morning 😊, surprised myself that I managed the 30 second plank. Have a lovely weekend and thank you for keeping us motivated πŸ’•

  • Why only next week? πŸ™
    May these days with you, Jules last 365 days a year! And if you don’t have the time or the strength to do new workouts then post the archives. People generally like to have something put under their nose. They don’t want to look in the archives themselves.
    As a single person I don’t count, but I do this plank for a minute and then on my forearms for half a minute.
    If you can, always incorporate some sort of balance exercise into every workout.
    Thanks for your valuable advice and comments! πŸ’›

  • “As we age, being strong is a choice”….so true, Jules, thank you very much for helping me every day to stay with this choice.
    My shoulders are on fire today, but in a nice way…am not fatigued. It was a wonderful workout.
    You introduced the plank 3 months ago, in a 35- min session…I’ve been working on it I am able to hold it for a minute..(.on my palms and toes)..Looking forward to a new surprise from you on Monday…hope you have a lovely weekend..πŸ’–

  • Day 5 in the books! YAY I did find the plank for 15 seconds too easy but I just would get into the plank before you started counting down and would stop when I felt I couldn’t hold up any longer. If there is one thing I learned from you, everyone is different and you just need to do what is challenging to you. Since I had other things that got in the way of me doing a day, I would double up a day, but I recommend resting the next day if you do it that way. I’ll say that my muscles were a little sore but nothing that I couldn’t handle, plus I always like the sore feeling because it means I worked my muscles. Excited to see what comes next. Thanks so much for putting these together for us.

  • Your tips are so helpful. I like that many of the exercises can be done seated. I’m one of the wall plankers and I was actually able to do the 30 seconds, which surprised me! I am enjoying this series very much. You explain the moves and options very well. I admit that I’m not a fan of the reverse flies but I make it work. Thank you for all the thought you’ve put into this program!

  • I have really enjoyed and benefited from this week. And I could do the 30 seconds on plank! My strength workouts have been hit and miss, so this is what I needed. Looking forward to next week! Have a great weekend everybody!

  • Thank you so much for the week of strength training videos! They’re great as usual, I really need these, I like that they’re not too long. Looking forward to next weeks videos. Have a great weekend, Jules! πŸ’žπŸ’ͺ🏻

  • These workouts have been so beneficial to me! Being able to workout with you after my hip surgery has made my recovery a breeze! I’m gaining my strength and confidence back and I feel great!! Thank you so much! Maybe we can add a few seconds to our blank everyday and build weekly towards a full minute. Thanks again for this program! 🀩
