I was in the right frame of mind for week 3...
Good job too, as the learning curve is steep in Intermediate 1! Only 2 weeks ago we first attempted basic inversions, and now we are onto handstands with knee slides! One good thing is that I am feeling stronger in my upper body already. I think I am also learning to tolerate some of the discomfort that comes with certain positions such as the 'pole sit with balance' - I did manage a smile as opposed to a grimace for once.
In everything though, we have one side that is stronger than the other due to usage throughout life e.g writing with your right hand, brushing your teeth with one hand; and this is evident when doing pole. Certain moves I can do without thinking on one side, yet on the other side, I can barely take my own weight! I hate using my weaker side when doing pole, but the fact is... "if you hate it, you need it" as I read in the AKR Conditioning blog.
What exercises do you love to do? and which ones do you avoid?
