Tip of the week
Pole beginners - When doing your spins, keep your arms stretched high. Try to hang all of your weight vs. trying to lift with your biceps. When you hang from your arms and creat a big "swoop" with your legs, you will enjoy a much smoother and faster spin. I try to make at least three rotations on all of my spins.
For the more advanced pole dancer - When trying a shoulder mount, pull on the pole as if you were trying to throw a 200 lb man over your shoulder. Shoulder mounting is about the arms and abs not about the legs.
Also, when doing any invert, try to avoid springing off of your leg or swinging into an invert. You will get more physical benefits if you use your core and your arms to lift yourself upside down. Momentum and swinging is like training wheels. Once you don't need them anymore, get rid of them and never go back!
