Hi all. Just a quick question. I am starting Pilates (it seems like a good idea to add to my gym work and walking). I went first time last week (yes I ached and No I am nowhere near as flexible as I thought!!). Much of the exercises are based around the core muscles and last year in rehab they said not to do sit ups/crunches. I think it was because my heart attack was relatively recently. So the question is can I do these exercises (not full sit-ups rather raising head slightly whilst pulling in flabby abdomen!). As I’m writing it I appreciate how daft it sounds but I wanted to check as am still behaving like a scaredy-cat sometimes! Or am I being overly cautious?
Thanks in anticipation
Cheers Zena x
