The challenge I am doing is inside the Pole Freaks membership site. I cannot tell you how much I love this path, plan. I had a question for Holly Munson and she got back with me so fast. She has offered to help if I need it too.
The challenge is a 12 STAGE plan. I thought.. "oh 12 weeks.. done". Well, holy crap... stage one is super hard. I looked ahead to stage two and realized that this is not a fast track. It's a progressive track and I'm not moving on until I master these things. Each stage builds on the last. Smart!
I'm using this bloggie to track my progress as I journey through this 12 Stage Invert plan.
I filmed the first two workouts of the week. I didn't film Saturday. I'm bummed.
Week one was rough, I actually trained 6 days this week.
I had 3 pole days of the challenge and 2 gym workouts. I also had a private lesson for work on a new song I'm doing in the summer.
I was exhausted on Monday. I think this past week was the hardest week I trained in a long time. It is going to take me a beat to figure out my schedule and how to make all of this work. I think though, that as I get stronger, it won't take me so long to get through the conditioning. It's 30 reps of climbs, knee tucks and pull ups. I can't even do one pull up.. holy crap.
I notice though, in my videos that my shoulder is elevating and I need to focus on keeping them really engaged. I suggest that if you are poling at home or really where ever.. film yourself. I can't believe how much I need to get my form correct! Gah!
I also worked on
Cross knee release
I'm legit not moving on to stage 2 anytime soon. I'm going to be A-ok with that and we all will celebrate when I do!!
