Sometimes I get really overwhelmed with all the different things I’m trying and wanting to train. I never know whether I should work on strength moves or flexibility, combos or go over old moves.
So we all know what it’s like to have a nemesis move. That one move that no matter how hard you try or how long you train it, you just never seem to be able to nail it.

I wanted to take you through a typical strength training session that I do for pole.
Here I show 10 variations on a plank exercise. Try to hold each for 30 seconds if you can – or less if you need to. If you’re looking for a way of strengthening your abdominals try this as a plank challenge for your core.
In this video I demonstrate two simple exercises you can use to strengthen your shoulder muscles for the demands of pole dance. The shoulders are unfortunately a frequently injured area of the body when pole training, so we need to look after them, regularly training strength and stability
Have you tried resistance band training for pole dance? I love to find new ways of training. Anything to spice up what I do and get stronger will always be a win with me.
