My arms and shoulders doubled in size over 10 months :)

    now that is the good bit I TOLD daveyboy I didnt need to go to the gym..:D

    doing the top half first on my big windows okay but the bottoms I did from the side and ohh it works your stomach muscles great...

    shame I trad mostly but its good to use different muscles..

    I said I'd still do lots trad when I went wfp but that all went out the window(no pun intended) and now I whip my pole out even for the smallest bungalow! Know what u mean tho. Defo a good upper body workout with the glass fibre poles!

    yes so far ...I only whip my wfp out when no one is around as I the shy wfp er...:D

    but getting more cocky as time goes on..

    its amazing that a lot of people think its not a skill and you can just bang the water on...

    but..I am getting there..:D

    my poor banana is a bit worn out now at the top where the clamps go...I am hoping to varnish it...or maybe..get some proper resin on it....at the mo...its all a bit loose...:eek:

    That's why I took the plunge and invested in this new one...banana is on it's last legs..there's only so many times u can keep adjusting those clamps and it's still loose and sliding about all over the place! Oh..and the amount of duct tape on it now is unreal :)

    I didnt get to duct tape I did try pvc but you would have to do the full section as if you only do the end it just snags up....
