    I’ve been doing simplefit only for about 3-4 months now, seen noticable gains, reached Level 4 now.

    The reason for this post is that I’ve hurt my knee, can’t even do air squats!

    What is a good squat sub, which doesn’t use the knees?

    try core… crunches, leg lifts, evil wheel, or plank are all good.

    add to that list – abmat situps from reclined cobbler’s pose, knees to elbows.

    Thanks for the quick replies.. I did crunches in place of squats.

    On Level 4 Day 1, I did 10 crunches instead of 6 squats – is that fine, or should I do about 2x the number of squats?

    Also, I’ve been moving up levels once I got day 2/3 to around 10 min – just read somewhere on the forum that I should move up once I hit 5 min for day 3.

    Should I drop down to level 2 or 1 to get down to 5 mins for level 2/3? That seems a bit too fast!

    Scale down if D3 takes longer than 30 minutes.
