Tutorial and Tips on Inverted Straddle V

At the beginning of this longer note I want you to know(becouse you might be here for the first time):
- I'm a newbe in it, it's my second training ever after 2 week break(becouse of the weather... It's still more winter than spring in Poland, yesterday I trained with sun and 13C degrees, and today it's -4 and snowing! -_-, and my trains depends on weather, becouse I have hoop in my garden :( )
- I'm pole dancing for 10 months now, so it might be easier for me to do hoop stuff.

As I said, yesterday the weather was quite good so I decided to train again after 2 weeks of break.
How was it?
I have to say it is was awsome! :)
FIRST: I regret a little that I still can't do inverted V with strength of only my muscels like on pole, I still jave to jump a little to land in it perfectly. I think it's still becouse of my stomach muscels, which are strong, but on pole, while doing inverted straddle, you can a little rely on pole, then raise your legs and then use that rely to push them behind you. YOU CAN NOT do that on hoop, you don't have any support from hoop, there are only your arms and floor which can help you. So it's obvious that we are jumping at the beginning. But I think there is one exercise that can help us with achiving that one:
1st STEP
Just stand in front of hoop, catch hoop, and bend your knees and try to bring them as close to your chest as you can and HOLD! As long as you can! :) It is really good exercise for beginning

2nd STEP

 When you will be able to stay in that position like forever try to do push ups on hoop.

Push-ups are hard, you don't need them to do Inverted Straddle from jump, but if you want to do it using only your muscles you have to exercise that one.

3rd STEP
 Push-up's that will bring you as close to the straddle as they can!

 This is hard! You might need some time to master that one! You need belly, core and arms strength, so if you're not sure about it be carefull and train, one day you'll achieve it!

4th STEP
Now you can try move to the 3rd step on image below:
Lower your hands and bring your butt upper, it is really hard one, you have to synchronise your body, lower your hands and lifting your butt at the same time!

5th STEP
Now you can try 4th step from upeer image. Just streighten your legs on sides and bring your butt as high as you can! :) And you're in a straddle now! It require some work, but it's possible for everyone! :)


Pose Halasana from youga is awsome for building core and belly strength!
If you hace bed with legs, or something you can hold to, this exercise is also really good for those muscles:

You can also do push ups (if you can't try with that awsome tutorial which I found!):

Don't forget about stretching and be careful! :)

Next tips blog entry soon! :)
