A three-time Olympic gold medalist, Kerri Walsh Jennings knows what her body can handle.
And so it was easy when it came to exercising both before and after giving birth to daughter Scout Margery this spring.
"I took four weeks off when my baby was born, and then I just got to work," the beach-volleyball star, 34, said at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings admits she was concerned about the public reaction to her nude photos – taken while she was pregnant and then just nine weeks after she gave birth to her daughter, Scout Margery.
"I am so happy and relieved that people are receiving my pictures so warmly," the beach volleyball competitor tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I didn't realize how vulnerable I'd feel upon the release of the photos … I am happy and I am proud."

Olympic volleyball sensation Kerri Walsh Jennings has a new partner – and, no, she didn't ditch her husband.
The three-time gold medalist who dominated the sport with teammate Misty May-Treanor since 2001, has announced that she's teaming up with 31-year-old April Ross.
"She's a stud and has been working her butt off for the past couple years," says Walsh Jennings, 34, about Ross, who won a silver medal in the 2012 Games. "I want to be with a winner and that's why I asked her."

History was made Wednesday when Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings won their third consecutive Olympic gold in the women's beach volleyball finals.
"Winning the first gold medal, we were young, sweet, we did it. Winning back-to-back medals is very difficult. To go for a three-peat – I don't know if you could write the script the way it turned out. But we believed," May-Treanor told PEOPLE Wednesday.
May-Treanor, 35, and Walsh Jennings, 33, defeated fellow Team USA athletes Jen Kessy and April Ross in the all-American final.
But even May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings's opponents couldn't help but feel elated for the team who helped pioneer women's beach volleyball.
