This question arises before many students once they cross the gym’s threshold.
Some are lured by new pole dance tricks, they wish to learn, try and endeavor.
The old techniques have lost their appeal after they have been exploited several times.
Perhaps they have been photographed and placed in Instagram, which doesn’t add to the appeal, either.
Such people are bored by the humdrum procedure and monotony. One and the same
lift, the same movements and interceptions, the same attempts.
Why strain if all is good as it is and the trick works.
Why get bruises and corns from doing one and the same thing?
Therefore they learn the standard elements superficially, opting for refilling their arsenal with new ploys.
Others, on the contrary, do their best to hone their elements to perfection, perpetually improving the same technique.
The student’s perfectionism or just fear of things new are a driving force of repeating the acquired skill all through the training process, not leaving time for learning other material.
What type are you?
Whatever your answer, try not to jump to extremes, seek a balance between the optimization of the acquired skills and picking up others.
Honing an element takes much time, which is why you should have days dedicated to optimizing the acquired skills.
Actually, the more solid your basis is, the simpler it will be for you to learn new elements.
However, if you stick to one and the same thing, you will eventually realize that you’ve stopped growing.
Therefore, during most of your training sessions try to find time for optimizing the old elements and learning a couple or so of new ones.
For example, pick out a trick you need to master and learn three different approaches, or try to make a combination of new and old elements.
Then the material will be well digested and you will progress at a steady rate.
