Jenna, 33, and her personal trainer targeted her arms and her legs during 90-minute workouts which she did four days a week, and incorporated Jenna’s love of dance into her workouts.
“Working out kept me sane,” Jenna told Us Weekly. “I would feel a burst of energy and all my hormones would regulate.”
Mrs. Channing Tatum has been a dancer her entire life, so as soon as she could start working out after giving birth, she went back to her favorite routines. “I thought, ‘I’ve worked out and danced my whole, it will all fall into place,'” she told the magazine — and it did!
Jenna also credits breastfeeding her daughter with help in quickly dropping the baby weight, but admits slimming down was not as much of a concern as her newborn child. “I didn’t think much about losing weight,” she said. “I was overwhelmed and in love with my baby!”

But her one cheat food was french fries! “I could not get enough,” Jenna gushed. “They were completely my Kryptonite.”
