Pole Pull Up Progressions

Pole Pull Up Progressions
I love pole pull ups. There are so many cool variations, and they help get you strong for so many amazing pole moves. Here’s how I’ve been building up my pull ups on the pole – perfect for any level.

Filming Pole Moves For Social Media

Filming Pole Moves For Social Media
It usually takes me a really long time to film moves to then post across any social media channels. I always go through what I’m going to film a few times on each side, and then start to film. I always film one or two attempts, watch it back and then go again. I find that there are so many things I need to consider and things that can go awry when filming including: Showing the wrong angle Having...

Pole Strength Workouts

Pole Strength Workouts
I’m away from my pole studio for a little while and wanted to set my students some pole homework 😀 I’ve broken these down into 4 pole exercises and 4 bodyweight strength exercises per week. There are different options – option 1 is the easiest, and the difficulty increases as you go through the options. You can choose to do the one option that is a good level for you. With the...

Pole World Festival – My Visit

Pole World Festival – My Visit
Last weekend James and I decided to go to the Pole World Festival in Bristol. It’s a long old way away from us, but luckily we managed to combine the journey with seeing family – it made the 12 hours of driving more worth while! It was lovely to see family and friends, but we did wonder if the journey to Pole World Festival would be worth it. We had no idea what to expect as the event is now...

24 Pole Splits

24 Pole Splits
I just love, love, love pole splits 🙂 Here are some of my favourite pole splits – well, those I can do anyway! My front split on the floor is currently flat on both sides if I stretch first, and I’m slightly turned out on my left – just to help visualise how much of a split you need for these! I know I still need to work to get some of these flat, but I’m proud of where I’m...

Cross Training with CrossFit

Cross Training with CrossFit
I’ve seen a lot of people asking recently what are good ways to cross train with or for pole – and some asking about CrossFit in particular. I’ve been going to CrossFit on-and-off for about 5 months now, and have a good idea of how it’s helped or affected my training. My CrossFit journey started as I just didn’t have enough time to go to the gym, figure out a workout plan, and get it...

Pole Splits

Pole Splits
There seem to be so many cool pole splits going around at the moment. Whenever I get used to one, another one comes along, and I couldn’t be happier. My normal split can usually touch the floor on both sides – although I turn out a bit on my left side. I find that this is very apparent on some pole splits while others hide it nicely. I love that there are so many different ‘families’ of...

Get Your Flex On!

Get Your Flex On!
Okay so the picture attached is a massive achievement for me… massive! I know some of you will easily be able to do this without with thinking or even feeling a stretch, but for me it is torture! I have to stretch for ages before I even attempt this, and even when I do, I so far have only been able to hold it for one or two seconds. This picture is the first and only time I’ve ever been able to...
