I have a strength section in the routine as of right now I am building my business and can’t buy equipment. I know of plenty of floor exercises for the core but I really don’t want to get on the floor during the class. I have mostly pretty fit people coming to my class right now so something that is able to be modified for less fit individuals but challenging for my fellow advanced pole fitness students would be great or even a free place to find videos that will help me find a few good exercises. Thanks!
Partner resistance warding exercises work great at training core stability: Have one person stand with hands together, arms straight out front shoulder level, the other person stands perpendicular and presses his or her hands against the forearm. Both people need to maintain a solid core while the first person taps his or her legs back. Variations include tapping on a diagonal, or once they are good, balancing on 1 leg. If you have bands there are numerous similar variations you can do, including holding the lower body still and moving the arms. Partner band wood chops are also fun.
I love standing core exercises but the ones I do still involve a lot of lower body too. So here is what I like to do with people and myself, hope they help.
Standing Frankenstein (standing and kicking your leg out straight up to your out reached hand and alternating legs and also doing the same across the body too. Does that make sense?
Going into a lunge position and bringing the back leg up with the knee bent and bringing your arms towards you like you are breaking a stick on your knee.
standing on one leg and rotating a weight up around your head 5-10 times then rotating it the opposite direction.
I hope you can understand these if not feel free to call me 603-631-2555 and I have more ideas too.
