    Hey everyone!

    New to posting but have been lurking for awhile.

    Can anyone help me come up with a list of simple stationary static moves, nothing inverted and nothing twisted grip vise.

    I have a scaffold pole and have realized that it’s actually doing my arms some damage doing spins/inverts ect on it, when doing stationary moves it’s fine…. I think it’s the amount of strength needed to hold on to it and I’m just not at a level yet where I can.

    When I do the same spins/inverts on an X-pole all is well so I’ll be getting one late next month but I really don’t want to stop practicing in the meantime.

    So far I have come up with

    Normal Crucifix
    Cross ankle and knee release since I was already working on those

    Thanx everyone!

    Let’s see…

    Flatline scorpio, maybe?
    Thigh hold
    Good ol’ fashioned pole sit

    You said no inverts, but how about a butterfly?

    That’s all I’m coming up with at the moment. Have fun when you get your X-Pole!

    You should consider buying Veena’s lessons. They really are cheap for the amount of content you’re getting, and they are organized by difficulty so there’s all kinds of non-invert moves. Even if you already know lots of the basics, I know those lesson videos are really helpful for planning my workouts. I’ll flip through the lessons and decide what I want to work on today/this week/learn by the end of the month/etc. Glad you started posting, welcome!

    Thanx for the tips you guys!

    I was thinking about buying Veenas lessons after I got my Xpole but I see now that I might benefit greatly from them up until then as well, especially the strengthening section.

    I guess I’ll be working allot from the pole sit with planks, flatline scorpio and stuff like that and I guess that if I don’t hook my legs onto the pole I can work on getting my shoulder mount controlled.
