Jumping Jack For Those With Bad Knees Or A Bad Back

I did a high intensity workout yesterday that involved a lot of jumping.  The program consisted of 4 exercises, flutter squats, high knee running in place, burpees and jumping jacks.  It was too much for the little old knees so I modified some of the exercises and replaced the jumping jacks with stability ball jumping jack.  I still got an intense workout.  If you want to check out how I do jumping jacks on a stability ball, check out my video here or below. *Make sure to buy an anti burst ball and I suggest that you purchase your ball from Power Systems or Spri.



Have you ever done jumping jacks on a stability ball?  Would you use this in your workout routine?

  1. Honestly I have never tried jumping jacks on a stability ball. Very interesting concept though. How many calories do you burn with this? #wowlinkup

    1. I don't know but it is really for people who can't jump but would like to do higher intensity classes such as boot camp.
