    Every time I see these exercises they are always for already-skinny people. There are those who are quite stout and cannot kick and squat, YET, like in these exercises. Can't you post some exercises for heavier women who are trying to get to that point of doing these exercises? I'm just sayin'........ - 10/23/2013 4:53:36 PM
  • It would have been nice if the names of the exercises were included so they could added to the fitness tracker... otherwise, I'm giving it a go... - 9/23/2013 8:49:12 PM
    Yippe! I'm already doing all those moves in various workouts I do. I've only gotten back to exercising a few weeks ago so happy to see where I'll advance. :-) - 7/21/2013 4:18:27 PM
  • Like these exercises. Going to give it a try - 7/21/2013 12:12:30 PM
  • Thanks for the article. I will try this to help with the butt. - 5/2/2013 9:20:48 AM
  • So going to do these exercises! - 2/20/2013 12:03:35 PM
  • I have a herniated disk in my lower back which causes problems with my knees - there is no way I can do a lot of these exercises without putting my back out. I would like some ideas on exercises I can do. I workout 5 days a week between the elliptical, walking on the treadmill, and also the stair stepper machine. - 2/20/2013 10:10:38 AM
    On the butt exercies should you do 3 sets on each leg one at atime or should you alternate sets? - 2/20/2013 8:52:10 AM
  • Really love these exercises and they are making a difference. But I wish the proper name for the exercises had been included so I could add them to the fitness tracker. Anyone know what some of them are called? - 9/10/2012 10:43:30 AM
  • This is great, I do these and more, but every other day. Is it o.k. to work this area everyday like abs?
    My current set is cardio & abs S.T.Th and weights & allover toning M.W.F off on Saturday

  • Revise that last comment. My daughter printed it for me by clicking the wrench in the top right corner of the tool bar. From there I followed the prompts and now have a copy of the article. - 6/13/2012 1:39:55 PM
  • To everyone that is having trouble printing this article try to e-mail it to your self and print it from there. That is what I had my daughter do for me. Good luck!! - 6/13/2012 1:29:16 PM
