10-Minute Creative Core Workout

Back to the Video
This is way too difficult for someone who has both knees replaced and can't get up if I'm on the ground. I watched and just felt bad that I couldn't even begin to do it. Wish that SP would have more core exercises like Coach Nicole's chair video---just sick of doing that one over and over again.
I couldn't do all of this, and modified as best as I could. The commentary doesn't describe the move clearly enough, so need to watch first really. However, it certainly does hit the abs, sobi might come back to it!
This chick is NO JOKE. NO JOKE i tell you!
I couldn't do this series because of problems getting on ground and problems with right elbow
wow this was a very hard workout for me i did what i could
This is way too hard for a 50 something needing to lose 50+ lbs. I still did as much as I could as I told the lady off.
This one definitely is beyond my beginner ability! I lasted about 1 minute before quitting.
I have wonky knees, and this is a little too strenuous, but I go through it just to be able to laugh at myself. I look more whale than ballerina, even "turning my head gracefully,"rofl.
Look, folks, we have the ability to MODIFY or just avoid any exercise that doesn't work for our bodies. Coach Nicole says," if it hurts, STOP." I definitely need to do that on this one.
Like Leslie Sansone says, "The goal is to keep moving,"
The reason I'm doing this challenge is to VARY my workouts and keep from getting bored. With this one I got some laughs, too.
No Ballerina Here!
This comment is for the "Creative Core Work-out."
All I have to say is COME ON!!!!!! This work-out is great if you are a ballerina or some kind of dancer. PULEEEZE! And this work out would be fine...nice and challenging...HOWEVER, this instructor gives no notion as to how to modify these moves. Why is Spark People using it???? COME ON!!!! GET REAL! I know it is part of Acacia TV but, SP has no choice in the videos they use? Again I say, show me modifications or don't show me at all. I do not mean this post to be abusive and I don't think it is. I do mean to speak for the many of us that are thinking this but are too nice to actually post.
This actually hurt my back. Not doing this one until I am closer to my weight loss and in better shape. Really?
Wish these workouts in the 28 HOme Workout Challenge were trackable like they used to be! I agree, this one is too advanced for those of us who are a bit on the senior side or blind! I couldn't follow most of what she was saying! gimme coach Nicole or some of the other workouts here on SP!
I have to concur with previous comments. For people just beginning their journey, this work out, even with the modifications is very challenging. I am glad it was only 10 minutes or I would have quit. Yes, we need to be challenged to reap the benefit, but when the challenge even modified is very difficult to reach you become discourage and give up. Many of us give up which is why we are where we are. I did not find this workout inspiring at all. Won't do again.
