      Thanks for this video very helpful, as I am having problems holding it longer than a few seconds. I will try this with legs extended since I can hold my weight on the pole but just not hold it very long. Awesome video.

        Yes holding it longer than a few seconds is very normal, hang in there. Your body changes very fast! Most women see a drastic difference by week 6 and are floored at how fast they were able to build the strength to do Pole Pull Ups. Just keep believing in yourself and keep going!

      So excited. Last night was the first night I could grasp the pole and pull my knees up. It was a short bursts. But I’m thrilled at the progress.
