With the growing numbers of women that are smitten by pole dancing, it’s also inevitable for pole dance products and accessories to be in demand on the market, but one important question is, what sets apart a good product from the rest? Or are they just the same kind with different brandings?
This is where reviews come in handy, and in this case we are going to take a look at and compare two pole dancing accessories that are very helpful especially for beginners who want to improve their pole dancing skills without punishing their thighs with bruises from the pole. This is when inner thigh protector grip wraps come in handy.
Developing your pole dancing skills
Learning new skills definitely needs a lot of practice and getting used to, and pole dancing or pole dance work out being a full body workout (and a resistance training and cardio in one) needs every muscle on your body to work and your skin also plays a big role. It is the very key in gripping the pole and being able to do basic moves such as mounting the pole and spinning, to advancing your skills and being able to do more advanced moves like cross-leg climb, superman-roll and the likes.
Every pole dancer started with probably little to none in terms of skills and developed into the strong and graceful dancer they are now, for sure they have had their fair share of bruised body at some point of their early training days (and maybe even now every once in a while!)
What is an inner thigh protector and what they do?
With all the climbing and spinning, it’s the inner thighs that take the most beating from the pole that results to bruises, now thankfully there is a product that will help protect you against it and helps you grip the pole at the same time, the inner thigh protector!
