Question by Niki T: Not being able to do situps or some pilates exercises without someone holding down feet: Is it a core issue?
I’m wondering because it seems that every time I watch a pilates instruction video, they seem to have no issue doing the moves without someone holding their feet down and I do.
I am not fat but I am slightly larger than the fitness models on these things and I carry a lot of my weight in my bust so is this just a matter of being too top heavy or if I keep at it, can I eventually be able to do it on my own?

keep trying. don’t quit because of a minor set back. don’t worry. once you’ve done it so many times, you will be fine on your own. try putting heavy books on your feet instead of a person. technically that is doing it on your own. =) Just kidding. Don’t stop trying!
