I confess. I was wearing all black.
And what happened? Well, without the Pink Shorts of Power I was WEAK! :p
Ok, I'm sure I'm being melodramatic, but hear me out.
Thursdays lessons, historically, haven't always been my proudest moments. There was one, where I got over the whole inverting thing and got on with learning tricks, but since then, there's been a bit of a Thursday barrier.
Saying that though, I am not being completely fair to Thursday.
Ok, so my Gemini sucked
Anyway, I decided to work on the spin with no name. I'll show you where I got to. The epitome of grace...
Well, I think you can see whats happening there. Basically, that second foot, the one not on the pole has to come through the gap.
Time for more stretching methinks!
It's the same story every time, that foot comes up, close, close, closer aaaaaaaannnndd......everyone around me is saying "cmon, do it do it".
Oh, don't worry, you'll be hearing about it when I do it.
I love that spin and its great being able to practice it xD
Still, I did have a nice little triumph - bear in mind that this is actually only the second time I've managed to get myself into this pose, so it needs some work, but I'm pleased as punch.....
Introducing, the GENIE....whoo! xD
So it's a little wonky, but with some work it'll look great :D
And even a smile (read: grimace) for Charlie ;)
Now if I show you how I got into it - hopefully you'll notice my inverts are getting a little bit neater - less monkey like xD
If we compare to an invert from a month or so ago too, you'll see how quickly it's possible to progress! Don't get me wrong, I've got shed loads of work to do with my inverts but at least they're looking a bit neater!! (and funnily enough, you'll notice it's exactly the same start to the move from Genevieve to Genie!)
Just for your reference - this is a hip-hold (I think it's also referred to as a pike hold)
Anyway, now I'm going to have to a) feed my face and b) do some yoga...I REALLY need to stretch. I've been a little slack on my weight workouts this week courtesy of a mad schedule, so the least I can do is body weight it up :)
Stay happy, be good and keep clicking peeps!! :D
