While I was making this tutorial these last few days, I totally started to regret that I gave this gorgeous spin such a boring name.
WHY THIS NAME?
Generally, I like practical pole names. I hate it when the name makes me wonder „Why is it called like this? And who on Earth gave it this weird name?“ Like the Sword Spin… Is my imagination too poor? It’s so confusing!
You know what’s the best pole name? – The one that helps me understand the move better.
I was thinking probably too technically, when I called #5 and #6 spins Outside and Inside Forearm Spin, after I searched the internet for an official name. I realize it’s not very creative and I’m wondering if you have any ideas for a better name? Please share them in the comments below on this page or write me an email.
WHERE DOES ALL THE GORGEOUSNESS COMES FROM?
Although the Outside and Inside Forearm Spins share almost the same name and the same push and pull technique, the IFS is a bit more difficult. Not only is the arm placement different. Instead of facing the pole, we’re aiming to stay sideways to the pole, which requires stronger pushing and pulling with the arms.
The more you push and pull, the further away from the pole your hips will stay. Here’s where the move becomes bigger and more floating/flying. Here’s where all the gorgeousness of this spin comes from!
The technique of pushing and pulling remains the same though. That’s why the first conditioning exercise in this video is almost the same as in the previous tutorial.
I just realized what I love most about this spin while I was playing with it! It’s the shape when the inside leg comes in front – the lines get longer and you can extend them even further by lengthening the neck and upper back, as well as arching slightly.
Make a gorgeous combo with this spin and share it with others. ❤ #15spinsintoclimb
