To start this pole dance ab workout at home, you will want to stand next to your home dancing pole in a stronghold grip. (If you don’t know what a stronghold grip is, consider getting the Home Pole Lessons For Everyday Women, it will teach you about all the pole grips and other basic pole dancing lessons for beginners along with pole dancing exercise routines, individual moves, flirty warm up routines, and more.) Then follow these instructions in order:
- Be sure your shoulder blades are back and down, the shoulder muscles should be engaged. Never “hang” from your arms on the pole.
- Engage the lower core and tuck the hips forward strongly enough to cause your knees to bend, leaving your toes on the floor. You should also feel your grip on the dancing pole increase as your upper body begins to hold your body on the pole. DO NOT allow your body to slide down the pole.
- If you have a good grip on the pole and you can hold your body weight on the dance pole, then gradually engage the entire core to bring your knees to your chest.
- Hold for a few seconds, keeping those shoulder blades back and down.
- Then SLOWLY release the knees, keeping the lower core engaging while returning the feet to the floor.
- Stand in starting position. Repeat to your fitness level.
If you cannot lift your knees to your chest, then only lift your feet off the ground a few inches but engage the lower core as if you are trying to lift the knees to your chest (which is your end goal).
