The exercises are more challenging than I expected , how can I modify the exercises?
Every exercise in the DVD has a basic form. I suggest that you practice the basic form until you feel comfortable with it. Don't worry about completing a specific number of repetitions, just focus on doing each repetition correctly. You could practice each basic form for 2-4 reps with rest between each set. When you feel comfortable with the basic movements, move to the more challenging variations and/or increase the number of reps. It's a good idea to practice the form and movement pattern and then incrementally add challenges (load, speed, etc). Progression is important...add one thing at time and practice well before you up the challenge.
Example: You could practice walking out into the plank and holding. You don't need to add the push ups or any of the other variations until you are ready.
