Pole Show LA 2014

Last Saturday was the the illustrious and famous 5th annual Pole Show La that Be Spun puts on.  This was the 2nd year the show was at 333 Live.  We decided the have a viewing party instead of going to the show.  It was free and we only had to wear our finest PJ’s, eat pizza, drink wine and have pie.  All fat and calorie free mind you 😉 The countdown for the show was up on the Big Screen, everything was hooked up and ready to go and at 8:15 we started checking FB.  No show yet.  Ok fine, more wine and pizza an hour later still no show . THE FEED NEVER WOKED.  Boo hiss.

To be honest, it didn’t matter that much that the feed wasn’t working and we couldn’t watch the show 😀  Ladies night was a success in my book.  We ate pizza, cookies, Shannon’s amazing bruschetta (recipe below) and drank wine (the most important part).  It was so nice to just hang around the kitchen island cackling and having fun.  I’m going to download the show this weekend and watch it for $1.99. 🙂  I did manage  to find a few videos via FB and wanted to post for your viewing pleasure.  Sienna Spaulding posted a 10 minute behind the scenes video along with her performances.  Very cool 🙂 and Michelle Shimmy killed it even with a broken rib.  She’s my new pole crush, actually, I think all the aussie chicks are.  I love how they embrace the sexy style, booty poppin’, hip swaying, hair flippin’ essence of sexy that is pole (wow, that was a mouthful).

Sarah Jade, who I haven’t watched much of made my jaw freakin’ drop!  She remind me of Alethea Austin but with a little bit different style.  I may be developing another crush LOL

Last weekend was an aerial kind of weekend and I love how it’s gaining popularity.  Pink performed in a sexy little number complete with aerial silks and if you recognized poles in Katy Perry’s interestingly strange performance you were right.

I’ll talk to you hotties later this week after I torture myself with PiYo (a post in it’s own) and also I PROMISE I will post splits progress pics, getting started is the hardest part LOL

New Year Revolutions ;)

Happy New Year Kittens!

2013 was a helluva year.  I started a new job that is an actual big girl job.  Between working late and having to go in early I had to take a little hiatus from pole only getting my classes once in a while and too tired to pole at home.   Not to mention some unfortunate financial circumstances.  Between work and weight gain from slacking off at the gym I decided to kick 2014 into high gear, or at least give it my very best effort.  🙂  I’m educating at least 2 days  week to poling and 3 days a week to stretch and 4 days a week at the gym to cross train.  I’m join to order Cleo’s Rockin Legs and Abs and will post my progress for splits.  2014 is going to be a year dedicated to doing the things I love, getting my pole body back and learning to love me again.

Here’s my pole plan for tomorrow:

-warm up with a short free dance

-25 dancers squats (toes out, legs wide)

-10 spiderman push ups or regular push ups

-Climbs–silly side and dominant side – depending on ho tall your pole is, I’m 6 feet tall with short ceilings so I do one climb up and “squat” for 10 on both sides.

-pole hangs -5 each side

-layback crunches – 10

 

I’m going to run through this 2-3 times and then practice:

-spins (fireman, backhook, inside hook and variations)

-over head v or fliptini

-invert

I’m sure that will be more than enough to start LOL.  and if you are feeling like I am just know that IT DOES COME BACK!!!  I’m trying to remember the journey and sometimes we take a few steps back or rest along the way and that is ok!

I’ll talk to you all next week!  Make it a great week and remember how truly awesome you are!
