Try, try again! ~ Pole Practice
I FINALLY got my pole up in the new place. I have it in the dining room-to-be right now, the ceilings are 8 1/2 feet! I am going to keep it in there temporarily so I can practice my climbing some. I’m used to barely-over-7-ft ceilings, so that extra 1 1/2 ft REALLY makes a big difference!
Anyhow! It’s been 6+ weeks since I’ve done anything with pole. Needless to say, I have to work up to some things again. I’ve lost my caterpillar & butterfly altogether! What the heck?! I can still handspring decently and get into a basic invert, basic plank, pole sit, climb…. so annoyed! I kinda have my cupid, but I can’t hold it for very long.
I helped my sister in law get started with some basic beginner strength stuff. Pole sit, pole hold, pole climb, fireman spin, half spin, crucifix…she doesn’t mind pole burn NEARLY as much as I do, and she is gaining strength quickly…she is going to do great!
On another note, I’m definitely going to be working on my caterpillars as much as possible. Can you say FLAT ABS?!?! Yes please! 🙂
