Absolutely! As long as you're challenging yourself it's fine. Just make sure you don't push yourself too hard, and if there's any strength training ensure you use good form and only do as much as you can. For instance, if you're meant to do twenty push ups and you can't even do one full push-up, but can do ten incline push ups, do that then stop and walk on the spot or something to keep your heart rate up.

I have a lot of exercise DVD's but for various reasons (two left feet, not in good enough shape) i can't keep up with all the moves. I find myself modifying a lot. Should I be looking for easier dvd's (i.e. less coreographed)? Those dvd's can get boring and aren't always physically a challenge. Or is it ok as long as I am "moving"?
