Seems there are a lot of us who can't put pressure on knees. Love the 5-min idea though. Report

What a neat idea & I have both the mat & exercise ball so I'm definitely trying these exercises! Report
I can't get on my knees either. Maybe there are more videos with the ball? I just got one. Report
Nicole: This looks like it would really be good for my abs, BUT there is no way I can do anything on my knees. Please show us more exercises we can do without involving our knees. Thanks, sweetie.

I used to love ball exercises. I still have my ball, but sadly I have not been able to use it for 10 year's due to 3 bulging disc with arthritis and a pinched sciatic nerve. Report

That's one I can't do because I've had 2 knee replacements. I can't put weight on my knees! Report
Pretty cool but, the harder plank would take some practice. Someone could get really hurt with that one. Maybe she could teach what is the best way to balance? Report
