Pole Goals for this Year & New Stretch!

Good morning ladies and gentlemen! Hope you’re all having a lovely Wednesday, my favorite day of the week. I have pole tonight at the studio, still a little afraid that my wrist isn’t going to be up to par to do the routine, but I’ll be icing it right before class as well as periodically throughout the day.

Today is new stretch day! And today I found a good stretch from Julia Wahl of YouTube.

Now for this stretch you want to keep your back and leg flat on the ground. If you aren’t flexible enough to grab your leg to pull it back without your leg coming off the ground then grab a belt or a towel and put it around your ankle, and begin to pull back on your leg until you can feel your other leg starting to lift.

Don’t forget to switch and repeat the same with the other leg. Hold each leg for about 30 seconds each.

I think my splits are coming along nicely. Obviously nowhere near where I want them to be, ever since trying jade I’ve wanted to get it properly down.

My other goal move for the year is the Ayesha. I just think it looks so impressive.

I think one other move I’d like to get down is the allegra. I feel like this is another move that you need good flexibility for.

What are your goal moves for the year? Let me know in the comments below!

So I’m not grabbing my butt, just so everyone knows, I’ve had a problem with my hip since Pilates on Tuesday so it was hurting.

Now usually I do a video on Friday but due to Sexapalooza being tonight, I was very busy. I had to make shirts for my pole girl and myself because our studio didn’t have any in our size. So I’ll be back to the video making next Friday! Fear not, you’ll get to see my incredible awkwardness on YouTube again!

Don’t forget to tune in today at 11:14 am EST for the opening ceremony for the Olympics! Big day for Pole Dancing, 11 year-old Olga Trifonova will be performing in the opening ceremony of the Olympics today. Now in my video last week I accidently said she was Ukrainian, and that was wrong, she’s Russian. The reason I said Ukrainian was because I had just seen that Anastasia Sokolova performance, also on a talent show, had just gone viral. I had multiple people on my friends list sharing the link with me. Although I had seen the video months ago, it made me happy to know that they relate pole dancing with me, and not just stripper pole dancing, but legitimate pole dancing sport. Not that there’s anything wrong with strippers, but it’s nice to be associated with the sport side of it for once!

Well I hope to see lots of people tonight at Sexapalooza, crossing my fingers that I don’t fall on my face. I’ll be doing a special Saturday post this week so that I can welcome others who have ventured to my blog from my cards! I’ll also be sharing some photos from Sexapalooza, not to mention I’ll be going that night again but just as a spectator for fun, so I’ll have more pictures from that.

So until tomorrow mes amours!
