I really more or less gave up on inverts for a while, for a number of reasons. First, I am not comfortable being upside down all that much. I'd like to lose weight and build more upper body strength and confidence. Second, the pole is too short, and I believe, too thin (1.5 inches = 38 mm).
But, then again, I want to confront that fear safely, and within the limitations of the pole situation, and fitness I have. So Johannah was hanging around (getiing ready for her best friends birthday party), I felt courageous, and so I talked her into being a spotter. More importantly, she consented to being in a posted video.
I have a fully produced headstand movie already Saved to the hard drive--but I am a little self conscious about posting it. It has a "topless element" and I am a little self conscious about putting it up. And there's this funny rib that sticks out and it is very embarrasing so I am still thinking it over. But I do stay upsie down for a long time, by myself, and perform a little trick.
In the US, everybody gets a little leeway on Halloween--maybe I will put it up then. I could cover up that funny looking rib with one of those digital captions, right?
Can a video get flagged because the person's body is just plain unfit?--LOL!
