Training In The Heat

Training In The Heat
Our bodies are all different – some of us love the hot weather and some of us love to pole when it’s colder. I love the hot weather – and not just to pole in! When it’s warmer I have so much body grip that it makes those pesky ‘holding on just with skin’ moves much easier… still painful, but much easier. My hands slide a little bit but it has to be super warm for me to feel...

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.
