HANDSPRING! (cartwheel)

So, I had to make a post just for this accomplishment! Tonight, after 6 days of practicing it, I nailed the cartwheel handspring!!! *does happy dance*!!! I can’t hold it for more than a second yet, but I’ll definitely be working on it until I can perfect it!

I was out running errands today & it was such a gorgeous day! I found myself wanting to pull over because I kept seeing street signs & random poles… Kept thinking “hmmm I bet I could invert on that one” or “ohhh layback would be easy on this one!” haha! I heard the urge to go street poling would creep up eventually. Every pole type thing I see, I think of all the poling possibilities!

I’ve still been working on a stronger invert…also the knee hold, still no luck with that one.

Got a picture of my first good cartwheel handspring 🙂

I have been able to straighten it up and hold it a little. The video was at the end of a very long workout so I was a bit worn out at this point…it’s not very graceful! But I still got it haha.

About Kat

If I had to choose one word to describe myself, it would be eclectic. I like a little bit of everything and I do a little bit of everything. :) Some of my current favorite things to do are: spend time with my husband and daughters, work my home based business (http://rippedwraps.myitworks.com), play with makeup and nail polish, work out (pilates, Jillian Michaels DVDs & pole dance/fitness), play Halo Reach & Zombies (COD) on xbox 360, living on the lake & blogging! I love my family more than life itself...and I will guard and protect them with my life. I've also learned to start standing up for myself (thanks to one of my mentors!) and tell people to back off when they try to hurt me or my family. My childhood abuse no longer defines me, thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ...and as a result of giving ALL parts of my life to Him, I have more peace and joy than I can ever remember having!
