I am so glad that you include beginner exercises on some of your articles. Some of us are older and just cannot do the explosive moves. Many people need to work up to doing more and when you only include power exercises for the intermediate or advanced exercisers it can become very discouraging and even dangerous for those of us that may try to do something that is out of our league. Thank you so much! Miss Bee
