I also have an inner ear problem and understand your problem. I use DVD's at home to exercise and ocassionally have to modify them to avoid vertigo.

A lot of my DVD's include "standing ab" exercises. For example, the whole "Hip Hop Abs" program is based on standing ab moves. The old Zumba set (not the current "exhilerate" one) has a whole 20 minute standing routine for abs. You could use those -- find them used for cheap, check them out for free at your local library, etc. For "Hip Hop Abs," I think you can see clips on their website and/or tape their infomercial on TV. There are probably also examples on U-Tube.

I'm taking an exercise class, and I have a weird inner ear problem that makes me feel sick when I do sit ups or roll on the mat from side to side.

The class includes about 5 minutes of mat exercise including lots of sit ups and side to side rolling (it's mostly dance aerobics and stretching), and I'd like to do my own ab exercises that DON'T make me sick.

I know about the plank -- but that's less than a minute for me at this point. Any other ideas?? Ideal are exercises I can do either sitting or standing up, and I can't bring a ball with me because of insurance issues.

Thanks!
