Sometimes it’s the simplest things that hold us back from progressing to the next level, especially when it comes to more advanced pole tricks. Often times your heart will desire to do more extravagant pole tricks but your mind will give you an onslaught of reasons why you can’t, like “I’m too heavy”, “I’m too old”, or “that’s impossible”. Don’t listen. Your heart knows best.
You have heard of senior citizen Olympic marathons or other sports that demonstrate people’s abilities to do abnormal activities. The reason they can is that they believe they can, it’s in your mind.
Granted, we are not all triathlon athletes nor will we ever be, but the point is that regardless of your age or current fitness level, you can do much better than you currently are (probably beyond your wildest dreams) if you would just believe you can.
Once you decide to try and believe in yourself, then you will naturally find ways to prepare for whatever it is you set out to do at an advanced level.
If it isn’t challenging to the point of doubt, then it’s probably not a goal worth achieving in my opinion.
Some of the most rewarding (and risky I will admit) things in life are the things you thought you couldn’t do but decided to try anyway.
Advanced pole tricks are like that, you must decide to try, go for it, prepare, take your time, train, work hard, enjoy yourself, and one day, you will find yourself doing the Superman on the pole at 65 years old!
Ok, maybe you want to do it sooner than 65 years old but you get my point, regardless of age, if you really want to do something, you can if you decide you can.
The way you work yourself into learning more challenging and seemingly superhuman athletic activities like advanced pole moves is through progression. Unfortunately, we live in a world of instant gratification and if you don’t achieve our goals in 4 weeks flat then were are done….. such a poor sport thinking that way. Anything worth achieving takes time, sometimes years of practice and dedication.
You must progressively learn the techniques, take your time, listen to your body’s responses and move forward according to your own knowing.
Learning level 2 intermediate pole moves is the first step to learning advanced pole dancing moves at home.
Some great level 2 intermediate pole dancing moves are:
The Flag Hold Move (in passé and stag as well)
Inverted Crucifix (one legged and with a bent knee)
Learning these above lessons will prepare you for more advanced moves by desensitizing and strengthening the skin as well as subconsciously building other ways to grip the pole with your legs that will help you safely exit more advanced moves.
