My Pole Goals For 2018

My Pole Goals For 2018

If you’ve read any of my New Years posts before, you’ll know that I don’t make any resolutions… mostly because I never stick to them!

So instead, I’ve decided to make a list of moves that I want to start working on, or continue working on.

I’ve decided to let you know what I hope to work on this year – and you can let me know what you’ll be working on too 😀

My List

Janeiro – so I managed to get my Janeiro this year!! Woo hoo! It’s taken me a good few years of trying but I’ve managed it twice. I now want to make it stronger and more consistent.

Aerial deadlift – I’ve been working on my aerial deadlift in all grips. My split grip is coming on nicely with a resistance band but my cup grip is still far behind. I would like to be able to have a strong deadlift without the band – wouldn’t we all?! 😀

Shoulder mount plank – I do have my shoulder mount plank – I can hold it with one leg bent and one leg straight for a long time (or at least what feels like a long time!) so now I need to get both legs straight and just hold. I can lower with straight legs and hold for a second or two but it needs to be longer!

More floor work – I feel happy with the floor work that I’ve been working on so far, so I would now like to learn more floor work. I haven’t quite figured out what I want to learn exactly, but I’m happy to play and see where it leads me.

A solid back bend – my back is the least bendy part of me by far. When I’m consistent with training flexibility I definitely notice a difference, but I haven’t had time to do it for a while. So now it’s go time 😀 I will still carry on working on all areas of flexibility though – got to keep those splits warm!

I have decided to only have 5 things on my list to work on, as it just gets overwhelming otherwise. Of course I’ll train other moves but these are the areas I want to focus on now.

I hope this list has inspired you to write your own list – and let me know what is on it.

I hope you had an amazing Christmas, and that you have an amazing New Year Xx

About Holly Munson

Holly started pole dancing after admiring the grace, skill and elegance of pole performances and immediately falling in love with the style. After half a decade of bruises, struggling and then the satisfaction of success, her own pole school Firefly Poles was born. The vision is to share that same passion with others.

Holly wished that there was more Pole Dancing help available when I was learning, so now she aims to provide that help through writing, blogging and teaching here on PoleFreaks.

Holly is also a Level 3 Personal Trainer and an ambassador for Dragonfly pole wear, and also writes regularly for the Dragonfly blog .
