This was last week
Yes, I inverted probably my 5th lesson, but I still worry about being crap grin

No idea how to do this but if this works this is my controlled flag.

Good, those photos look cool.

Not sure if this link will work but here's my controlled flag....a work in progress...

Is this any better, I shall give up if not, lol.....

Dope moves ladies grin
I am loving the dizzy swan/twisted ballerina/twisted star on spinning pole at the mo. also slow fan kick into plank.

What's the move you hate? I can't do Superman/Superwoman at all. It's hideously painful and my back and arse will not stay in a straight line.

Ps. Super impressed by the fearless inverts after only weeks asgoodas and look at you now, wow - and you look rocking betty - totally strong and powerful. V inspiring.

Did my link actually work the, lol.

A move I hate...mmm....dunno, I hate learning the cartwheel, scares the crap out of me and I will try and get out of it as I hate any move which involves letting go and jumping. A move which has taken me ages is the elbow grip Ayesha, not mad about elbow grips but I seem to have it now but it taken ages.

I like Superman, loads of ways to get into it and I like Brass Monkey too.

I personally don't really like the spins, much prefer the tricks smile

Thanks Stone - never used instagram before, only went on to upload that photo....had a couple of pro pole shoots, will see if I can work out how to add some more to there at some stage.

Routine practice last night.....only got a week or so till video submission and I think it's still crap....needs lots of neatening up, if I get through to this comp it will be a miracle hmm

I am submitting a video for the Midlands Pole Comp but I have to enter as advanced and there are only 8 spaces so I doubt I'll get through but you never know!

No, my friend has a sister who is a photographer and she has done a couple of shoots - they are great fun and will be something to look back on when I am old and saggy, lol.

Yes, seen her photos, she is awesome smile

I've got loads of awesome tricks in my routine, if they were judging by tricks alone I would stand a chance of getting in but the floor work bothers me, hate it and need to work on not looking petrified or bored, lol. 4 mins is so knackering, I sweated buckets yesterday practicing . Need to work on my jade on the spinny to make sure I keep my height.

I like Bendy Kate, Sally Ann Giles is brilliant, as is Sarah Scott - god there's loads and some great guys too.

....oh and not to forget Jess Leanne Norris, she is fab.

My instructor is pretty awesome though - she has to be my fav smile

I don't like spinny either - had to totally adapt my routine as started off learning i on a static and then when I went to do it on a spinny it was impossible. Yes, on the spinny side climbing, dropping into gemini, then into jade, into one legged cricifix, into box splits....cue the sick bucket haha!

My floor work routine is actually a nice routine, it's just me that makes it look crap!

No, she is my friends instructor though, my instructor is Zara Berry, she is brilliant!

Like your vid Stone very good....your first spin you do (we call in the pretzel) is my last move on my routine but doing it on the spinny pole......hope I have enough oomph left!

This is a linky to the routine our pole school did at the pole factor last and my friend are the doubles who did the double handspring near the end (on the solo bit am the second person to go on....pole bud was on the other side doing same thing but the film didnt get that pole.

Yes Zara is amazing, so lucky to have her as an instructor.
