I realized that this morning I wasn't sore or anything from working out last night (Level 1)...should I go to Level 2 tonight?

I can't do as many push ups as they though, so I was thinking I should stay on Level 1 till I can do them all. But I'm not sore either.

How long have you been on Level 1, and are you able to do everything else they do? Are you able to do the modified push ups, just not the full pushups? Level 2 has a LOT of plank moves (plank jacks, plank twists, and another one that I can't remember) PLUS walkout pushups.

I still can't do both sets of full push ups. I do about 10 of the first set, then go to my knees. I've been through all 3 levels, so I don't think that you need to be able to do the full push ups. I'm back on level 1 now with heavier weights, and my goal is to get through without modifying the plank moves.

Yes, I'm on level 1 (with 2 lbs weights, I don't have anything heavier right now). I have been able to do about half of the regular pushups before having to go to the modified version. When on day 1 I couldn't even do 1 regular push up!

There are a few moves at the end (the one with the one leg front one leg back) that I have difficulty doing on my left side due to issues with balanced caused by Cerebral Palsy...

I agree, MOVE UP MOVE UP! Or.... AND some heavier weights. I use 5 pounders and at first I was like, this is nothing, bc in the weight room I warm up with 5 pounders, LOL, but Lordy I can feel the burn with those, LOL.

Christa...what do I do? I could only get part way though level 2! I have some pretty good issues with balance so that is why it was difficult.

As you strengthen your core your balance will improve. I liked moving up to level 2 because it's much more of a challenge. I also loved moving up to level 3 for the same reason. I actually lost the most weight (2 lbs) when I moved to level 3, even though I had to stop and catch my breath a million times. I was sure that because I wasn't "getting through" it wasn't going to do anything, but that's when I saw the biggest results.
