  1. I’m kind of new to the community and I wanted to know if K and K due weekly schedules for the whole year or if it’s just a summer thing. Thank you.

    1. Candace Sneed says:

      Its for the whole year. At the beginning of the month they post a new monthly calendar and then every Sunday they post your weekly schedule :).

  2. Elena Vázquez says:

    Hi Girls…i’ll apreciate if you design more workouts or give any advices to tone up the calves..thank you!!

    1. Cait Fairbanks says:

      Hi Elena! I’m not sure what K and K’s thoughts are on lower leg exercises, but calf raises are your best bet. You can hold dumbbells to make the raise more difficult, and also point your toes in and out to really target the inner and outer calves. Good luck!

    2. christinaeli says:

      Yes, I agree with Cait. Calve raises are your best bet to target calves. Even releves from a ballet/dance perspective. With regular calve raises it helps if you hold weights or a kettlebell and stand on a stair or short stool with you heels hanging off, then raise as high as you can keeping your legs and body straight and pressing through the front of your feet. Relax your feet to return to the beginning position and repeat.

    3. Brittney says:

      I like holding a low squat while doing calf raises. Also, weighted calf raises are good too :)

    Hey ladies, the friday Beach Ball workout video is different than the printable.

  4. SusannaFKJ says:

    Hey, maybe I’m doing something wrong, but is there a way to help prevent my shoulders from hurting during the various plank workouts?


    1. christinaeli says:

      Where are your shoulders hurting? Try resting on your knees instead of toes and see if that helps. If not, then I’d sit the planks out and/or go to a doctor.

      1. Emma says:

        For me it’s my wrists which won’t take the pressure through the planks. I’m not sure how to strengthen them. I stretch them by bending the hand gently in the opposing direction once I’m finished planking, but I’m thinking I just need to get them stronger by repetition and consistently working out :s

        1. Sara Barr says:

          I find modifying the move to your elbows puts in just as much if not more work on your core, especially when you have you palms facing upwards. Otherwise if you must have a full arm-extended plank I recommend making fists and putting the pressure on your knuckles instead. S x

        2. Brittney says:

          I have to wear wrists wraps when I work out because I experience wrist pain as well. However, make sure you also have proper form. If you have your weight over your arms then you are putting more weight on your arms than you should be.

        3. christinaeli says:

          My wrists are a problem for me too, but I know sensitive joints run in my family. My grandmother just joined a gym and her trainer to her this: Try extending your arm out in front of you, palm facing down, gripping a small dumbbell, then rotate your wrist up so you see the back of your hand, then back down flat. That strengthens your wrist muscles and should help you!

          1. Emma says:

            Really kind of you to pass this on, christinaeli – thank you!

          2. Jackie says:

            That is clever! Thanks!

    2. Brittney says:

      If you just worked out your shoulders than you will feel some pain in your shoulders. Also, make sure you are distributing your weight properly. Planks are supposed to work your entire body. Make sure your shoulders aren’t scrunched into your neck, push up through your arms, belly button to spine, the backs of your knees pointed to the sky. This might make it harder but that just means your working harder and smarter :)

      1. SusannaFKJ says:

        Thanks for the feedback! I think it may be that I just don’t do planks enough and am not used to them. I definitely need to make sure I am distributing my weight properly.

  5. Tiffany says:

    Where’s the new Crop Top workout for today?

  7. Mia says:

    For Wednesday’s workout, are you guys doing both routines 3 times?

      1. Mia says:

        You did!! You’re a beast! Ok! I’ll do as much as this body can handle. Thanks for the response.

  8. Ryann says:

    Hi everyone. I do not understand what the BFF workout move on Friday is asking me to do. Can someone please explain?
