Hi there! May I know what's your secret (conditioning exercises) to achieve a shoulder mount? I'm dying to get it

The only way I conditioned was literally, by trying to do it. Every time I poled, I would try it about 3/5 times on each side. (this also helped my shoulder (traps) get used to the pressure of the pole, which is probably the hardest part, because it is fairly uncomfortable, if not down right painful. In the beginning, i just tried to get my knees to my chest and later to my ears. Just like you do when you are conditioning for a normal inverted mount, with the pole between your armpit and hip in front of the pole. then i gradually tried to get my legs higher and higher. now i am to the point where i can practice extending my legs making it more into an inverted straddle.  From here I will try to increase the amount of time I can hold it, allowing my body to slowly increase strength. I would like to point out that I always put more emphasis on correct form and making my movements as slow and controlled as possible, as opposed to only focusing how high up i could get my legs. I believe this, in combination with listening to my body and respecting its limits, is what allowed me to develop the correct muscles for it, allowing me to achieve it in a fairly short amount of time. You should def, take some progress photos/ videos and send them my way! i love to see how others are coming along in their pole journey! good luck! :)

After 3 terrible weeks of inactivity, i finally have my pole up in my new room!! 

I felt so weak today, but i am grateful for the feeling of tired muscles and i hope they are really sore tomorrow just so i can get that feeling of extreme satisfaction of having danced today. :p im hoping i can jump back into the swing of things and maybe work on some more combos soon. 

as soon as my room is presentable and i have enough room to truly dance, i will start videoing again and measuring my progress. in the meantime i will simply focus on flexibility and strength training. :p 

yeah cause the gif version looks cooler. :p

Next time I am going to work on getting up into butterfly at the end. Which, by the time i get to the end, i have like zero momentum left and have to rely completely on strength. yeah i didnt expect that. hence, my silly expression at the end of the spin. haha :) 

Once i have the whole movement down i will give it a little more oomph.
