Arms & Abs
I enjoyed the workout. I was unable to do some of the workout because I have a shoulder injury that bothers me, so I do what I can! Anna your 21 day challenge rocks and I really enjoy working out to your videos!!! πŸ™‚

Arms and abs
I had no idea I lacked shoulder mobility until starting this program. This was a great workout!

Good arm workout
I could feel this a lot in my shoulders and only a little bit in my abs with the seated twists. its great for arm strength.

Great for all levels
I love the modifications in the moves to make it either more challenging or more accessible for you based on your body. I have bad shoulders (torn labrum in both, had surgery in one), and I was able to modify the weights on certain moves to make sure I could still do the exercises. I know my body, but might be good for the videos to acknowledge taking care with certain motions if you have had injuries. Reminders to listen to your body are important. Anna is motivating and encouraging, and I look forward to working out with her each time.

Good Arm Burn/Need More Ab Work
Anna's workouts emphasize upper body which can strain the shoulders when there is no break in between workouts. I wished that this workout included more abdominal exercises.

My arms are shaking!!
I woke up with a headache this morning, so I am glad, especially today, that there's different versions to follow. Since it's my second round of this program, my arms got stonger already but still I was shaking during the bonus rounds. Loved it!

Great for arms
My arms have always been weak, but exercises with just weights are boring for me. I like the way this combines arm toning + strengthening the rotator cuff while also increasing core strength through balance. The half an hour just flies by. Thank you!

Love the side-winders!
I took a break this weekend so this is the first video for this week. I did videos one through four last week and I feel like the two day break helped me to be able to do this workout with more strength. I love the side-winders and the woodchop moves. The narrow plank push-up was very difficult for me so I just modified and did some push-ups from my knees. A great start for my week! Thank you for these great workouts Anna!

My Shoulders!!!
After the last two days, my shoulders were already starting to feel fatigued, but after this, my shoulders are dead! Looking forward to giving my poor shoulders a rest for the next couple days...

Great Workout
I really enjoyed this workout. The moves were challenging even with light free weights. I can definitely feel the workout in my triceps. Looking forward to doing this video again on Day 9!

Great workout
I am enjoying the workouts so far. I like how each day has a focus. Knowing that I should do more arm work out, i really like the different levels that I can work towards and I thought this video did a great job.

Arms and Abs
The focus was more on the arms, but I really enjoyed all the moves and felt like I got a good workout in.

Arms and abs - nice workout
Today I discovered that my arms are totally useless! Some of the movements I couldn't do the whole time, my arms just wouldn't do it anymore. I did finish the whole thing, just had to pause a lot in between! I will definitely come back to this one some day, because I really want to master these exercises and strengthen my arms and shoulders!
