  16. Wow. Jake is amazing and SOOOOOO fit!

  17. I died and went to hell last night and it turns out that Jake is satan and hell is an eternity of ballet barre exercises while he laughs the way he does at 04:18.

  18. In 2019 how can people still believe that doing stomach and core exercises will give you a flat belly? Stomach and core exercises strengthen your stomach and core muscles, but have almost NO IMPACT on your belly size. If you want to reduce your belly size you need to do some cardio, and, most importantly, eat less. How can anyone still be making videos with titles like this in 2019? Has no one ever heard of the internet?

  19. You are more than awesome <3

  20. This man has no mercy.Great workout

  25. If I was there he would have been fed up of telling ur welcome….cuz I was moaning all the time…
    But m happy I cmplted it..!!

  26. Jake's form is a thing of beauty! Love his energy and comments! Great moves!

  27. Just did this video for the first time. I had to pause it 4 or 5 times. I hope to do it more and one day not need to pause it at all.

  28. Usually you don’t rush ab work and this workout is way fast. Not sure it’s very effective.


  30. Ouch.

  31. Jake! Where can I send that thank you note? πŸ˜€ I've been weightlifting religiously in the past and then life got busy, I managed to take an introductory ballet class half a year ago in college to stay active and loved it! Obviously I'm no ballerina but I love the lengthening of the body and the overall strength and how everything works together. I love this work out!!! This is SO great! It's refreshing to see something other than planks and regular crunches. And it's so effective! I keep going to the bathroom lifting my shirt up to check on the progress how excited I am. Thank you!

  32. Jake is cute….n his exercises do help in burning fats….. experiencing…😎
