Here’s What NOT To Do When Learning To Inside Leg Hang
The inside leg hang can look beautiful, but it can also burn like crazy if you don’t do it right!
If you end up with some pole kisses across your thighs, don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
Still, we want your pole tricks to be as painless as possible and still look breathtaking.😍
This is why you should be aware of what you’re doing before you even hop on your pole.
It’s all about contact points.
Where skin touches the pole.
Many pole dance students start by rushing into the move. They hop onto the top, go into an invert, push their hips up, and hook their inside leg.
In this position, you’ll be too vertical and straight.
Remember, the more correct points of contact you have, the easier and safer your pole trick will be!
Try this instead…
