|No hotter combination than thigh high leg warmers and 7" heels|
One thing I really really hate about pole, is turning up to the studio to train and not being able to stick, no matter how many different grip aid combinations I try. The pole turns into a brass spinning stick of death, and the question I have to ask myself, do I want to die today.
Because I have to travel so far to get to the studio it seems like a waste of time warming up, trying to do something for half an hour then giving up and going home, so when this happens I pull on my leg warmers (or pants) and get down on the floor.
Today was one of those days and as frustrating as it was I still managed to have some fun. I've started playing around with a backward roll into like a split stand thingy (I have no idea what it's called) that one of my friends does a lot. I do it really really badly, and I can't get out of it to save my life.
before I gave up on pole for the day my friend Jinx and I did manage to figure out how to do a move from a video of Marlo Fiskens that I've been wanting to try for a while so pole trick wise it wasn't a total loss.
I may or may not have done butt isolations in a middle split on the windowsill in the studio… yeah so today wasn't totally a productive day but hey sometimes we need to just have a bit of fun.
In other news due to having a really sore back for weeks I caved in last weekend and went and had a massage, big mistake. Some how the guy that massaged me has left my lower back (which he wasn't supposed to be touching) sore and tight for the last week. I've been soaking in epsom salt baths, stretching it and rolling on my rumble roller to help to fix it. It seems to be getting better slowly, very very slowly, so I have been trying to take it easy when it comes to training at the gym and in pole when it comes to things that involve using my lower back to much. It's frustrating to say the least but at this stage I have no time to fit in an appointment to see my osteopath, as long as it's getting better not worse I guess I should be okay.
My next post for Bad Kitty will be coming out in the next week or so, so keep an eye out for it! I'm also working on a post about my private with Felix Cane last year AND a review of Cleo's new Rock n' Pole DVD!!
In the mean time, here's a fun little video of the cool and stupid things I got up to today… (it's mainly me doing a bum dance.) enjoy!
