Difficulty: Need help with levels?
• If you're not yet holding your entire bodyweight on the pole, you'll be most interested in INTRO moves.
• If you're not yet inverting solidly, Beginner is
the best place for you.
• If you have a solid invert but still struggle with Ayesha, you'll find great inspo in Intermediate.
• If you've got your Ayesha but are still working on moves like Phoenix and Iron-X, Advanced is for you.
• If you're doing the hardest of hard pole moves, you're Extreme and we all look up to you.
PSO Level: For more info on Pole Sport Organization's levels, visit their guide at https://polesportorg.com/pages/rules.
Broadly, here are the level breakdowns:
L1 - Hips can never go below your head (no inverts)
L2 - Inverted moves OK, but aerial inverts not allowed. 2 point-of-contact moves (e.g. ayesha, cocoon) not
L3 - Aerial inverts OK, but 2 point-of-contact moves still not allowed
L4 - 2 point-of-contact moves OK, but no flips with torso rotation (e.g. fonji/half-fonji)
L5 - No moves are out of the question unless they violate the overall performance rules
these level designations are not certified by PSO. Reach out to PSO directly for legality of specific moves.
