As you progress with your journey on the pole, achieving your Butterfly opens up a whole world of exciting new moves and pole combos!
I love to train my Shoulder Mount! When I look back, I remember it being a move that took me a little while to get, but now it feels strong and has opened-up a world of cool moves and combos.
