Bodybuilding philosophy[edit]

Hendershott's training consists of a combination of simple compound movements with free weights and body weight exercises such as push-ups and bodyweight squats (she sometimes uses machines and cables). She typically trains five days a week in the off-season and on-season focusing on her chest, back, and arms as primary muscle groups in order to make them match her strong legs and shoulders. Jen usually trains two body parts per day in the off-season, and performs one or two cardio sessions a day (one with her weight training and another one at night). She also trains her abs three times a week.
