15 Pole Dance Spins into Climbing from Beginners to Advanced

A collection of 15 pole dance spins for the spinning pole (from beginners to advanced), that I use to create a seamless and fluid transition into climbing.

They would help you practice creating shapes low on the pole and get used to spinning, before you move higher. They are also a great starting point for creating combos and a fluid transition into tricks. Why? Read here:

And the best thing about it - I’ll release 1-minute short video tutorials for each spin.

Fierljeppen - Canal vaulting in Holland

Subscribe for the latest news from SNTV:

A look at the unusual and 'uplifting' Dutch traditional sport of Fierljeppen.

These picturesque Dutch canals are perfect for a cow to graze peacefully by, or for tourists to cycle along on the way to a quaint pub.

They're also pretty essential when it comes to the sport of canal vaulting.

'Fierljeppen' as it's known in the Netherlands dates back hundreds of years, at first simply as a way to navigate the water-filled land.

Now there's a non-profit organisation that hosts 22 rounds of Fierljeppen competitions.

Jaarsveld, on the banks of the River Lek, plays host to just one of the events on the calendar.

During the event, each competitor is allowed two minutes to prepare for his or her jump.

Each entrant has at least three attempts during the event. The top three distances in each category determine who'll compete in the final - during which Senior Men, Ladies, Junior, and Youth titles are contested.

Theo van Kooten took the honours in the men's competition, and he says the sport is like a drug.

Theo van Kooten, Winner:
I think about Fierljeppen every day. After today's competition, I'll soon start to prepare myself for next week's. Once you get involved in the sport, your whole life is taken over by it. More than any other sport I play - like football or badminton.

So there you have it. Next time it pours down with rain, leave your wellies at home, grab a giant pole, and get vaulting!

World 25-metre Pole climbing Championships 2016

An unusual sport, for these athletes sprinting 25 meters isn’t enough of a challenge, they prefer to do it straight up a timber pole.

The sport stems from North America where lumberjacks would scale some of the largest trees in the forest, sneding off the branches with their axes as they went up the massive trees. This provided a winching point to lift all the heavy timber to one central landing area where the machines could be used.

The sport is becoming highly specialised with a world-class field looking at the minutest details in training, equipment and nutrition to give them the winning edge.

Some use titanium spikes which can help improve times. The accomplished competitor makes this sport look easy but given the highly tuned skills required, this is very challenging indeed.

One of the day’s most popular competitors however, was a man older than the 80-year-old tree he was climbing - 83-year-old George Tipping.

After losing his wife to cancer, George has been raising money for a cancer charity by pole climbing for over 18 years and not surprisingly won the admiration of both his peers and spectators at the event..

However, the overall winner was 19yr old Dan Whelan, a tree surgeon from Shropshire, who beat World record holder Grant Galler in the final. Dan’s winning time was 9.961 – Grant’s time was 10.90.

He was one of the youngest competitors in the competition. The oldest was his grandfather, George Tipping, a spritely 83 year old from Widnes, Merseyside and a legend of the pole-climbing scene.

The World Pole Climbing Championships will take place again in the UK in two years time.

Pole Climb Tutorial

In this video, I want to show the form on how to climb a 20 foot pole. I decided not to wear shoes to demonstrate true Quadrupedalism. For beginners check my other video Quadrupedal movement. The form to climbing poles is simple, Pull with the Hands and push with the feet and toes. Center the weight at your core and keep your back straight. Put your body in a V shape. When you move up with your right hand, your left leg should move up simaltaneously, likewise with the left hand and right leg. If you have any questions, please email me at allprotraining@live.com

Five Ten 2016 | Sonnie Trotter | First free ascent of Ewbank Route on Tasmania's Totem Pole

In January of 2009, after a 9-month battle (and 30 years since the First Aid Ascent) 'The Ewbank Route' on the iconic Totem Pole saw all 4 of its original pitches climbed free by two local talents, Doug McConnel, and Dean Rollins.

The Tasmanian classic went at 27 (or 5.12d in Yosemite terms), and Planet Mountain wrote: the two climbers were the first to point out that their style could be greatly improved upon as they freed the individual pitches over separate days, and pitches 2 and 3 were separated by a hanging belay. Those aspiring to climb the line in a single push should be aware that the route takes fiddly gear, is run-out, and solid for the grade. Any takers?

Well as it turns out, this description is exactly what appealed to our athlete's Sonnie Trotter and Will Stanhope. Both climbers are well known for seeking out beautiful and spicy lines around the world and The Tote (as it's often called) would be no exception. Watch, as these two climbers explore this rugged peninsula and Trotter takes down the nearly 200-foot pencil like pillar via the Ewbank Route, 5.13b R.
