Jenna Wolfe’s Camera-Ready Routine
As a longtime Today Show fitness correspondent and author of the new book Thinner in 30, Jenna Wolfe spends a ton of time on the road. This makes having a stable of do-anywhere workouts vital. She stays camera-ready with this short but intense circuit — and don’t be deceived by its length: “It may be short but it’s BEAST mode,” she says.
Warm-Up: Start with five walkouts. For these you’ll stand straight up, bend over, walk your hands out to a push-up position, do two slow push-ups, then walk your hands back to a standing position. Next, jog in place for one minute, then do jumping jacks for one minute. Finally, hold a body weight squat for one minute and do one minute of arm circles.
Mountain Climbers and Push-Ups: Start by alternating between 10 mountain climbers and five push-ups. Do 10 sets total, with no rest between them, meaning you’ve done 100 mountain climbers and 50 push-ups.
Squats and Burpees: Do 50 bodyweight squats. Since you’re not weighted down, focus on keeping your form tight, your posture straight, and going as deep as you can. Every fifth squat, pause to do two burpees.
Plank Pyramid: On your hands or forearms (or switch between the two during the plank for extra intensity), perform the following plank pyramid with 10 seconds of rest after each: 120 seconds, 90 seconds, 60 seconds, 90 seconds, 120 seconds.
More Mountain Climbers and Burpees: Finish by repeating the 10 mountain climbers and five push-up circuits 10 times.
Cool Down: Wolfe suggests spending at least five minutes doing light stretching. Make sure to stretch your glutes, hamstrings, and quads.
