May your weekend be graced with small wins #PayAttentionToThem
This lift in pole terms is commonly called a Brass Monkey deadlift – deadlift meaning there’s no kick ups, hops or swings for momentum during a vertical lift with control from liftoff to re-gripping of pole, with straight legs
Since I stopped training pole fitness tricks, my strength had significantly dropped for pole, including this used to be one of my go-to movements
The attempts post-cancer were messy struggles, “just getting up” is not the same as Owning The Movement.
I felt strong around 6 weeks ago to try them again, earned a few reps and treated myself to silly happy hops.
It means jack to anybody else but that ain’t the point.
It’s ok to let go a small part of what makes the big part of you, temporarily or longer, so you can focus on the ever-changing life priorities, it doesn’t change who you are.
Your response to change, at the core, is a make up of who you ARE
