I have loved this pole trick since I saw it about 10 years ago. The first time I tried it in a performance I was unable to take my hand off the pole because I did not understand about the sink. This video explains all about the sink and the conditioning you can use to get ready for the move aerially.

This is part 2 of the floor work series. None of these moves requires one be flexible enough to split so they can be considered basic floor work moves.
Floor work is an art all of its own and the more moves you have the better your presentation will be. Flexibility is key so work on splits is essential for a smooth fluid routine.

Floor work is many times a necessary part of any show. Whether it's in the club or moving pole to pole during a competition one must be able to smoothly transition from the pole to the floor and back again.
Unless you are working on a stage pole or in a very small space, chances are you're going to want to do floor work. This is some traditional floor work, no splitting required.
This is part one of two because the video would have been over 10 minutes long.

Sometimes you want to do a move that requires a split grip hold. Sometimes you may not want to cartwheel into that hold especially if you have on 8"+ heels. This will show you how to get into the hold with as little effort as possible. Keep in mind this is straight grip and done on spin though it does not have to be on spin. The whole point is using one body part to leverage other body parts until you are in the position you want to be in.
You may ask, does it make any sense to get into something if I can't lift or at least handspring cartwheel into it. The answer is that you are always stronger on the lowering phase of motion so yes it makes perfect sense. If you were so inclined to train, you could once getting into position using the information in this video then use [the position] to lower into Iron X.
Another answer is that while you may be strong enough to lift into split grip positions bare foot shoes add weight incrementally as they go up in height and size so what you can do barefoot you may not be able to do in 7" heels. What you can do in 7s you may not be able to do in 8s.

Teddy's been around almost as long as I've been poling. I find it's easier to do on a spinning pole because the spin helps to put the pole in the exact spots on your body to stick best.
This is a fun one to do at the club if you have the confidence in the hold. Legs wide open on spin. If you are not as free you can modify by crossing your legs, just be sure to make it pretty by pointing your toes.
Happy poling; safe poling.
This is another fairly new move in the pole world. It's one that must be done on a spin pole. If you are not used to spin pole it could take a while to get used to. I didn't even touch a spin pole for the first 10 years of my pole journey. When I finally did get a spin pole there were times I could only have it on spin mode for 20 minutes before I had to put it back into static mode.
