Are you struggling to get that Reverse Grab, been trying so hard to do it but it's just not happening?
I hear you, some members in my Pole Addicts Facebook group were struggling with this move too, so I decided to put together a series of steps that you can take to work on mastering the Reverse Grab once and for all
If you know me, you'll know I love my silicone pole, but you can't do any static spins on it. So I got my chrome xpole out to help you guys master this move!
So 6 steps
1 Hand Chair Spin
Chair to Reverse Chair
Chair, Tuck and Roll
This is a great move to work on getting your hips to the other side of the pole with the safety of both hands on the pole
You really have to work on pulling away from the pole and the big glide of the steps helps create momentum and strengthens up the shoulders ready for 1 handed spins
1 hand chair spin
With this move, you want to work on keeping you body away from the pole when you lift knees. Work on keeping your shoulder engaged and core tight to avoid bashing into the pole
Chair to reverse chair
Perform a normal chair spin but instead of pushing away with the outside arm allow your hips to move in front like corkscrew spin, once hips are passing in front of pole release outside arm from chest height and find the pole to you side around hip height, hold on in bracket gip until your feet touch the floor
Chair, tuck and roll
Now you want to perform a 1 handed chair spin, tucking knees into chest and allow your body to naturally roll around to the other side of pole, don't try to fight it, look down at your outside hand and when you see the pole hold onto it, avoid trying to find the pole behind your back, wait until your hips are the other side of the pole
As you sweep your outside leg around for momentum to spin for 1 handed chair, the out side leg starts to come across body, use that leg to create a circle and open into straddle legs
Now you are ready to put it all together for the Reverse Grab
Create momentum by taking 3 fairy walks
Sweep legs into a chair straddle
Tuck or attitude the legs and allow your body to roll to other side of pole
Hold the pole with out side arm once hips have passed and you can see pole to pole in a bracket gip all the way to the floor
