Inara becomes an acrobat - Part 1


Recommended Posts

Hey rebels, I'm back! And I'm on a mission. I have decided that I want to be an acrobat. Now I'm not expecting to join Cirque de Soleil anytime soon. I just want to see how far I can push this body as a personal long-term challenge. I also want to discover what will happen if I actually commit to something in life.

My starting point is absolute scratch. My weapon of choice is the pole. Well, there isn't actually much choice here, it's the only aerial apparatus I can fit in my flat.


1 Pole Skillz - Complete a 30 day intro to pole

The programme includes strength and stretch exercises as well as pole tricks. (Pass or fail DEX +4) I'll start this when I get back from traveling. In the mean time I'll work on...

2 Pole Strength - Proper girl push ups

I'll be doing sets of negative and partial push-ups 3-4x/week. (Points awarded for number of completed workouts A= 20+ workouts for STR +4)

3) Pole body - Has anyone ever seen a fat acrobat? Didn't think so.

At 5'10'' and ~170 lbs I'm not technically overweight, but it's enough to make me uncomfortable, especially if I have to be half naked on the pole. Plan is to eat ~1800 kcal and 100+g protein everyday, adjusting half way through the challenge as needed. (CHA +4, points for number of successful days)

4) Life - Wiping the slate clean (I need to fill it with fun things)

I've been procrastinating things like, hrmm, going to the dentist for the past, umm, half year or so. Yeah. Every time I find myself procrastinating I will put 20 SEK in a jar. Every time I do something "hard" I'll reward myself 50 SEK If at the end the cash flow is positive I get to treat myself something nice, else I will donate the difference. (WIS +3 max points based on ratio between in/out flow to be decided)

I started Chinese poles recently and it's so much fun and so hard too! I would suggest you to work on your pulls too (pullups, chinups) because that's a mouve you will use a lot on the poles. Good luck!

Chinese pole is so cool!! Some of the tricks are just insane. I will definitely be working on pull-ups, but for this challenge I wanted to focus on something I can do without excuses while traveling ;)

Sure sure I bet you secretely use it for some sexy booty shaking :P

Oh and congrats to both of you for being mods! I see some things have changed around here,have clearly been away far too long...
