Demona: Glad you enjoyed your pole class. If you stick with it, you will be less sore as you get used to it! It is a lot of fun!

Finally got my new brass spinning Xpole up today! I absolutely love it. The grip is so much better with brass! Wiped the pole down once with alcohol, and with no grip on my hands at all I was able to stick a shoulder mount to brass monkey the first time I got on the pole. LOVE Brass poles!!!!!!

I stumbled across this website. It's an online video resource of pole
moves for free. It doesn't seem to work on smart phones though, so
check it out on your computer. It seems like a good resource for some
ideas.

Don't know if this is the one you are referring to or not, but this is a video dictionary of pole moves.

Just put it on your hands if they are very dry. It will make them more sticky. However, if you sweat it makes hands more slippery. So it just depends on what condition you are trying to correct. If you have sweaty hands, then you have to use one of the grip products or alcohol. Just try different things until you find what works for you. It may be different in summer than in winter.

Dancngrl: Xpole doesn't have an instructor discount. Our studio just became a distributor for Xpole, and the owner is giving instructors a discount.

Demona: My hands are usually dry. I usually prefer shave cream for dry hands, but if you perspire, don't use shave cream.

There are tons out there. Do you go to a studio? I know my studio has grip available for students to try before they find the best one for them. Some of the more popular ones are:
- Dry Hands
- Mighty Grip
- Itac2 and Itac4
- Magic Grip
- Stickem
- Dew Pole

There are others, I just can't think of them. Also using alcohol or windex to clean your pole alters the stickiness vs the stick. Different people prefer different things based on their body chemistry.

Your hands could be too dry! Are you using grip? Everyone has their preference and you may need to play with a few to find what works for you.

That's great that you can invert. It takes awhile before you get the confidence to let go with your hands and just hang by your legs. Be sure one leg in front and one behind the pole (just like when you climb) and squeeze them together.

I just ordered a X Pole, 45 mm brass spinner. I can't wait to get it. I love spinning poles and hardly ever get to work on one because our studio doesn't have them. We just became a distributor for Xpole, and I got a great instructor discount.

If you want to just start doing stuff on the spinner pole, two items we do early where I teach are fan kicks (really fun on spinny) and fireman spins once the students really have them. Doing the fireman spin on spinny is a great strength builder!

My studio has them and mine also spins. I don't use it as often as I thought I would because I am one of those that gets sick. If I am good and slowly build up my tolerance, I do better. But, low and behold, I have a tendency to forget and just go full storm. Some moves are really really fun on spinny!

Our studio doesn't have spinning poles. However, I have been to other studios that do and to spinning pole workshops. I really love them. I'm really sorry mine at home isn't a spinner. I am probably going to get one.

If you don't have issues with seasickness or getting dizzy when spinning, they probably won't be a problem for you. The spinning really bothers some people.
