Have just started Shred, fortunately my stomach is in pretty good shape but I did the abs section anyway. Unfortunately, I have positional vertigo and can't easily raise my head from horizontal without major dizziness/nausea issues.
Anyone know of any other ab exercises I can do as an alternative?

Thanks, I'll try planks first I think.
I don't want to buy yet another dvd at the moment if I can avoid it, cheers though.

Google abs exercises on u tube - I'm amazed at the array of different work outs, all for free.

8 minute abs on youtube is great but you may find it too similar to these (i haven't done it in a long time whoops so cant remember), a bit retro but amazing. there may be some exercises in it you can use though!

Pilates is all about core exercises. Maybe worth a google.

bucket loads of ab work
pilates was partly designed to help dancers with injured feet stay fit ...
