    Ok so after having an excellent lesson at my pole dancing class last night I felt motivated to jump on my own pole at home and work on what I’ve learnt.

    But for some odd reason I couldn’t pull off any of the moves in the privacy of my home, yet last night I had no problems whatsoever.

    Another frustration is that I managed to climb the pole fully last night, had a good grip and everything, yet on my X pole I kept slipping and losing my grip (I wiped down the pole and everything). I still have yet to master the pole sit – I am holding on for dear life with my thighs yet there is no grip – nothing!

    What is going on?! I’m starting to think buying my pole was a bad idea

    Question: Does humidty play a part i.e pole is more sticky? My pole is extremely cold…could that be the problem?

    Cold pole = less grip. Do a bunch of spins and climbs and such to warm up the pole then try your holds.

    I’ve been having this problem, too – it’s been in the single digits here in NY and I have no grip whatsoever. Very frustrating, I know!

    If your in need of a good warm up for you and your pole check out the warm up in the lessons. Its meant to warm you and your pole.

    The temp plays a part. I was at a pole jam on Thursday at a studio and had no problems at all but tonight when I practiced at home on my xpole I had absolutely not grip even though my pole wasn’t hold.

    Seems like when ever the temps here drop below freezing I have this problem.
