Food For Flexibility

Food For Flexibility
You have opportunities every day to ensure that your diet supports your pole goals. If one of those goals happens to be increased flexibility, you’re in luck – certain foods (and food groups) are known for having benefits that can help you get that bendy body. On the flip side, other foods can slow down your progress and cause inflammation in the joints. Keeping this in mind can help you leverage...

Training Strength

Training Strength
I go through phases of loving different types of training. Sometimes I constantly just pole, stretch, do cardio or weights. I get bored easily so my routine changes often but I am quite good at training in specific ways. So I started to think about my pole training and have come to realise that recently I’ve been training my strength on the pole rather than training specific moves. There is nothing...

Making Choreography For A Routine

Making Choreography For A Routine
I love coming up with routines and I like to think that the more I do it, the better the routines get. When you read this article the type of routine I’m thinking of is an everyday routine – something for you to play around with, rather than a routine for a showcase. Some of the same ‘rules’ apply but for a competition I tend to work very specifically on training moves first...

Get Your Pole Mojo Back!

Get Your Pole Mojo Back!
A little while ago I lost my pole mojo. I knew I wanted to pole and would go and sit in the pole room but would end up watching tv or reading a book instead. I’d even get to the point where I was in my pole clothes, water at the ready and pole freshly wiped but would still not even get on the pole. This happens to me every so often. I pole so much and love it but sometimes I can’t think...

Superman: How To

Superman: How To
We all know that we love the Superman. For me it was always a move to judge other moves by: ‘Is it easier than the Superman?’ ‘Is it more painful than the Superman?’ The more I do it, the more variations, transitions and combinations I find. It’s brilliant! I like to teach the Superman from a Side Climb – you can do this super low to the ground so there’s less...

Ayesha: How To

Ayesha: How To
Ayesha, Ayesha, Ayesha. How I love you and hate you both at the same time. You have been there on my happiest days and my most frustrating days, and sometimes all in the space of a 10 minute window. Whether you can do it or not, it’s fair to say that the Ayesha is an important and awesome pole move. You can use it after your handspring and use it to help get your deadlifts. It helps you to get...

3 Spins To Master

3 Spins To Master
When you’re a beginner, moves tend to come and go. There will be some moves that you absolutely love and want to practice over and over again, some moves that you don’t mind doing either way and then there are those that you just hate. You may not remember these off the top of your head but when someone shows you them, all of that former anger comes bounding back to you! Whether you like...

Getting The Most from Pole Workshops

Getting The Most from Pole Workshops
I used to worry that’d never be good enough to go along to workshop with some of the best polers out there. Now I’ve decided that no matter what happens, I’ll always get something out of it – even if it’s just inspiration to train or a new move to work towards. Obviously there’s no point booking onto an advanced workshop if you can’t invert, but most of the...
