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.

    Never thought of using a stability ball like this but it would be a GREAT help

  3. Now these are awesome and something I think I can do. thank you.

  4. Thanks for this post. I have bad knees so these exercises would work for me. I've never tried a stability ball before but it looks like fun.
