I will be hosting a seminar at Pole World Festival here in the UK. The event is taking place at the ECC in Bristol on the 12th August. To celebrate this I will be giving you a monthly preview into the topics I will be exploring in my seminar, The 360 degree training mindset: Using your subconscious for pole success.
We’ve heard many of our pole teachers shout this during class even when you think your toes are pointed…it’s not enough! When it comes to exercise, most people overlook two of the most important parts of their body - their feet. They train upper body, lower body, and core without even thinking to strengthen their feet.
Having recently competed in Pole Theatre, a key part of my training was to improve the pointe in my feet as well as strengthen my ankles to avoid sickling (explained later) mainly because I did not want any pictures or the video to come back showing flexed feet or half a pointed toe! (Some would call this vein but I call it being a perfectionist!).
