I’m going away tomorrow for a week and am already having pole withdrawal. I didn’t go to class or aerial yesterday so my body can get some extra rest but my mind is screaming POLLLLEEE POOOOLLLLEE.

Really actually don’t wanna leave my students with another instructor, even though I know and trust the instructors who will be taking the classes. It’s actually horrible knowing I will miss out on seeing my students progress this week. Haven’t missed a single class since I started teaching nearly a year ago. It’s too weird.

World Pole Dance 2014 - Bendy Kate - WINNING PERFORMANCE [HD]

I’ve never been a major major fan of Bendy. I mean she’s mind blowing but not usually routines I want to watch over and over but recently I keep coming back to this one.

The fucking control in that first flip, it’s like she’s goddamn floating. Amazing.

Neeed more back flexibility. Neeeed to stop being a lazy back stretcher.
Anyone know what this is called?

I dunno why but my left butt cheek is getting bigger faster than my right? And it keeps getting cramp? sigh.

If you look at any person that has done something awesome, the question that always comes up from others is “where did they find the time?” It is not about time, but it is about an attitude and a way they live their life. Most people that are really fit and in shape, don’t find the time, they make the time. They know it is important and it is just what they do. That’s it. Is that any different from any endeavour?
Does every teacher have to be “great”? Not necessarily, but I believe that this is something we should all strive for to benefit our students. As I think of this notion, I heard this quote and it sticks out to me regarding this thought process:
“People do not fail in life because they aim too high and miss. They fail in life, because they aim too low and hit.”

Ian Matthews - male pole dancer. 

The people who moan they have no time are also the ones who post on facebook ALL day. Seriously get off the pc or phone and use the time wisely.

Shoulder roll, chest stand, fish flop? combo??

Note: I am wearing knee pads, please use mats or knee pads when learning this, broken knee caps suck.

If anyone has any tips on how to do a fish flop without a mat or pads that’d be great but I’m not sure I will ever be able to control the fall enough to not smash my knee caps in every time.

Robyn Rooke said flexibility helps because you can throw the legs back more, but it’s also about controlling the fall with your arms and ensuring you land on the hips and then on to the knees so you’re not hitting everything at once.

I need to just stop stalking my competitors…

Found one of them on instagram last night. So she can do Rainbow Marchenko, a perfect Eagle, near enough perfect box splits, straight-legged TG deadlift on spinny pole, pole walkovers and four consecutive Round the Worlds with straddle legs. I literally have nothing on her. Oh well.

Think I’m gonna abandon the idea of winning this year. Gonna be working hella hard to get myself at least closer to that level, but I think I’m just gonna try and have fun with my routine and hopefully make the judges smile. Who knows, maybe by going for different, creative and entertaining that’ll give me an edge lol. It makes me feel better to know that most of my competitors have been poling 4+ years, whereas I’ve only been doing it 3. Of course I’m going to be a bit behind them. Especially with me being a full time student as well. Proud of myself for getting this far anyway!

Babe, go up there and do the moves you can do and do them fucking well. Make your routine enjoyable to watch, make sure your lines are pretty and everything flows. Be a joy to watch.

I’d much rather see that than “extreme” moves done sloppily. And I bet you that is exactly what will happen. Until Elite level it’s pretty hard for anyone to pull that crap off well in a routine. Plus..just because they can do the move once for a video or picture does not mean they can pull it off in a full routine with the extra pressure of being judged.

edit: and don’t forget you wouldn’t have got through if you weren’t good enough. 

just because i don’t follow u back doesn’t mean i think u have a shitty blog. you might just have posts/fandoms/stuff i don’t really want on my dash. and hey, that’s fine. it’s YOUR tumblr you’re here for you and that’s goodgreatawesome

but please don’t think me not following you back means i hate u 5ever and that u can never inbox me or reply to my posts or follow me on twitter or something b/c that is not what it means at all
