Hope you are doing well!
As you’ll all see, in my featured image is the pole move known as the Butterfly which myself is performing there. This wasn’t a first time fluke.
This move took me many weeks and months to get to this point and i’m not going to lie, tmy honest humans, I was getting deeply upset. I saw others grasping this first or second time but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t do it.
Then I realised something, some moves didn’t take me very long at all! For example, the invert and cross knee release – I got those on the first attempt yet I know people who are in my improvers class you still can’t invert. I realised I was being selfish and that sometimes these things take time and to take things at my own pace – work on other moves or sequences and work on certain parts of the body, for example the shoulders. I also researched videos and pictures of how to attempt the Butterfly.
Then today, the moment of truth. I knew that it was coming up today. So as soon as I could, I grabbed my instructor to guide and spot me first of all and I felt okay. So I tried again and I did it!
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! Don’t be afraid to ask for help guys, for anything! Also, be pro-active! Workouts that you can find on pinterest (follow me @debj95 – https://uk.pinterest.com/debj95/) which I have pinned in the workouts group and also looking at the move in detail.
That’s all for now!
Thank you and goodnight x
