First TV Show
In June 2013, Jenna was first seen on the dance reality show, So You Think You Can Dance.
Running is an integral part of Jenna’s workout. She finds running therapeutic and makes sure that she runs 6 days a week. She gives herself Sundays off so that she can recover. Before she begins her running session, she makes sure that she has stretched her calves and hamstrings.
Her running and walking sessions stretch for about 50 minutes and she relies on interval training to get most out of it. On the treadmill, she starts by walking at 4 and finishes off by walking at the same speed by 11% incline and in between squeezes running intervals.
The body weight and core exercises are done after the running sessions. She starts off with 3 sets of pushups and follows it up with mountain climbers and side planks. After that comes twisties with a weighted ball, medicine ball crunches, and she finishes off with medicine ball pikes.
She has also learned the importance of a disciplined and clean diet. She has understood that no amount of workout can negate the effects of eating three donuts before a workout. And, a healthy diet plan combined with her intense workout routine has helped her shed 40 pounds over two years.
