If I could even get into the positions for #1 & #4, I'd probably be able to get into jeans. Just trying 'em, I'm more likely to need to get into a chiropractor. That 4th one is going to be tough on back issues. Sorry, not for me.
I thought this was great (but yeah, the scissor crunch should definitely be done in private) - I logged it on the fitness tracker as "Strength Training (bodyweight) exercise" and then the number of minutes it took (7 for me). I don't know that I am correct on this, but it seemed to make sense. I hope that helps!

Wow, I love this skinny jean routine:) This is my 20th Day of the work out and I feel each move is getting me closer to my skinny jeans ('-'). Bring it On!!!
I made it through Skinny Jeans, BUT at age 74 and a tendency toward back and hip problems (3 back surgeries, recent hip problem) found some of the exercises could be painful. The lunges in particular are a problem for me. I would like to see more alternatives as I find in some of the SP videos. Tomorrow I finish the challenge and will see if my skinny jeans fit better! Thanks for the challenge!
Oh God, no way I am doing the scissor crunch in the middle of a gym full of people! This is an at-home workout! LOL

I did this just after returning from my strength training class, so I felt them all! I especially loved number 3, that was a new one for me. Keep them coming!

These are great exercises! I must concur with many other people that having these on the tracker would be beneficial. The only exercise that I had to modify was the scissors. I had neck surgery and can't lift my neck and shoulders as instructed; if I do I am in great pain later in the day.
