Re: Straight pole vs. bending

I think one of my problems is that I can't drop my shoulders. Like my hips will get to my shoulders but they stop there because I can't drop my shoulders. How exactly do you drop your shoulders? It seems to me that you didn't hear a word I said. :no: The problem is not that you can't "drop you...

Re: Straight pole vs. bending

What is so different in a bending pole? Why can't I get inverted on a bending pole? I'm guessing that you raised your grip when you went to the bigger pole. :D Seriously, it's because with the low grip on the popup, your technique is "perfect". That's good, because that proves that you no...

Straight pole vs. bending

Okay so I can do a perfect pop up and get perfectly inverted doing straight pole, but when I go to a bigger pole and start bending the pole, I can't get to get inverted. What is so different in a bending pole? Why can't I get inverted on a bending pole? Any drills that can help out.

Re: Improving my form. HELP!!!

1. Don't throw your head back. Look at your top hand as it comes into view. 2. Don't pull or row and the hands forward. The forward pressure you are applying onthe pole is stopping your swing and the rotation of the pole towards the back of the pit. Practice keeping the hands as high as possible th...

Help me get inverted !!!!

So this is my video at 10'06 with a grip at about 13 on a 170 (I know what a disgrace) :crying: I believe that once I can get fully inverted I can clear millions of more heights. How can I get inverted? The reason why I don't turn is because I didn't feel right to turn (I wasn't inverted so I didn't...

Re: Help getting my hips up and get fully inverted

You are blocking with your bottom arm. By fully extending your bottom arm off of the ground, you can't swing to inversion. The bottom arm should act like a shock absorber and then extend above your head like hanging on a high bar. So what should my bottom arm look like and what should I do with it?...
