You know that one trick that you just can’t seem to get, no matter how much you practice? Your nemesis trick…well mine has been the knee hold. I have never had such a hard time nailing a trick! My goal was to get it by my birthday, which I missed, but I managed to get it within a week afterwards!

I can’t wait to try this one out street poling! ๐Ÿ˜€

Brass Monkey!

This move never really stood out to me, so I’ve never gotten around to attempting it. But, I’ve realized it will help me achieve a few other tricks that DO stand out to me. I must say, this was harder for me than I thought it would be!

I discovered that: 1-my hamstrings will be a lot stronger because of brass monkey. 2-my back is not very flexy …at ALL! 3-I love hanging upside down by my legs! haha ๐Ÿ™‚

I know this isn’t the greatest picture, but oh well ๐Ÿ˜›

Iguana Mount combo

This is a new one I got yesterday… it’s a lot of fun! I found muscles in my shoulders I didn’t even know I HAD ๐Ÿ™‚

“You know you’re a poler when…”

You know you’re a poler when you are away from your pole for WEEKS & begin looking for lamp posts, street signs & even TREES to do inverts on………..

Thank the Lord I found an abandoned playground nearby with a 45mm pole! I’m definitely getting my next pole in the 45mm size, it’s much easier gripping with the hands–but not so much with the legs. Also with these pictures, unlike when I’m on my pole inside, I am wearing much more loose clothing which KILLS any grip for hip holds with Gemini & Scorpio, so I couldn’t let go with both hands.

Anyway, here are a few pictures, I managed to get a basic invert & a gemini on a pine tree, but the gemini was terribly painful, hahaha! Pine trees are NOT the best trees to do tricks on…
