With the growing popularity of pole dancing, it is also inevitable that the needs for everything pole dancing related will also rise and we can’t blame the pole dance enthusiasts, beginners or pro alike for being hooked or interested in this art/dance. Pole dancing is a full body workout and that being said it has many benefits for your body and well-being and here are some:
It’s good for your heart, like any form of moderate to intense workout and blood flow, since all muscles are being engaged at some point with all your bending and stretching (which by the way is highly important for women who spends hours sitting on a chair).
Reasons To Start Pole Dancing For Fitness
It’s good for your bones and joints; this one is a no brainer. With pole dance movements, like gripping the pole, using your upper core, lifting your body etc. it’s the bones and joints that gets a lot of benefit and since you are not putting huge stress on your joints (as you would if you are running) pole dancing classes is a very safe form of exercise too. By doing pole dancing you are developing strong bones and joints.
It helps you burn calories quickly, for many women (and men too) weight is becoming a huge issue. Pole dancing being a full body workout is a great isometric and cardio vascular exercise therefore enabling you to burn as many calories in a 30 minute workout as you would doing aerobics and the like, which will eventually lead to significant weight loss over several months.
It also builds your confidence! Once you get used to the pole dancing routines, strengthening your muscles and developing some skills, you’ll also start to develop confidence not just with the way you are starting to look (and perform!). You’ll be more confident with the way you walk around the pole, more confident in yourself, and even improve your posture! The more you develop your skills on the dance pole the more you will become confident in real life as well.
These above mentioned are just some of the health benefits of pole dancing but you bet there’s always more to discover!
Common Mistakes People Make When Choosing Shorts For Pole Dancing Class
Mistake #1: You might think any old shorts will do for pole dance fitness and your first instinct might be to run down to Target and buy a pair of regular running shorts. This is a bad idea for many reasons. First, most fitness shorts (like running shorts for example) are fit loose around the leg. While lose fitting shorts might be cute and comfortable, they will also show your crotch when you do a wide leg stretch in pole dance class!
There are many pole dancing moves that require you to keep the legs out wide to the side. Any short that isn’t properly fitted on the thigh will show your panties to the whole class so beware.
Mistake #2: Buying clothing that digs or pinches the skin. Clothing that digs or pinches the skin not only creates an ugly “pooch” on the skin, but it’s uncomfortable and lacks the flexing in the material necessary to execute many dance movements.
Mistake #3: Buying shorts that are very long, like biker spandex. Any short that runs down to the knee isn’t going to allow for proper grip in the pole with your inner thighs, causing you to slip down the pole.
