These are great exercises. I am in my 50's, and until a few months ago, I would have sworn I could NEVER do lunges or my knees would kill me! However, if you are a beginner, you don't have to lunge as low as Coach Nicole in the video! Do them slowly, use proper form (never let your front knee go past your toes!) and lunge as far as you can. If you continue doing this regularly, your quads and glute muscles will get stronger, and their support will protect your knees. Strong muscles are the best way to protect ALL joints!

Cannot do the lunges as knees would give way but the leg lifts are ok
