Pole Dancing Muscles

Pole dancing isn’t the taboo activity it used to be. The strength-training nature of it has gained attention among physical fitness experts. Some people even have poles installed in their home. Pole dancing works most of your body’s muscles while burning calories and building coordination. Talk to your doctor before beginning a pole dancing routine.

Abdominals

Any moves that require balance challenge your core muscles, making pole dancing ideal in this regard. Many of the exercises involve being upside down, which also works your abdominal muscles. Pole dancing moves also provide resistance to your stomach area, enhancing the benefits. Most choices are beneficial for your core, but spinners, chairs, floaters, inverts and ab pullups are good options. Continue reading Pole Dancing Muscles

How to Create the Perfect Video Entry

By Miranda Hardenberg
Body Mechanics Expert

It is that crazy time of the year, it is competition season and I have to admit, it is killing me watching all of the deadlines for video entry knowing that I cannot compete this year. So, I thought I would turn my mind to a few things that might help some of you who are looking to compete, but have never been through the process of actually entering before. It can be quite daunting, knowing that someone out there will be judging you on an audition tape and ultimately making the decision as to whether you compete or not; and around the studio I have heard lots of you talking about entering but not really knowing where to start. Here are a few tips on entering and making your first audition video that might make this process a little less scary.

What’s the Rush Princess?

By Miranda Hardenberg
Body Mechanics Expert

I am so excited for the new season that has begun and for my role as Body Mechanics Expert here at Pole Princess. For those who I have not had the pleasure of meeting, here is a little bit about me which will explain what has lead me to write this first blog.

I have been poling for 5 years, instructing at Pole Princess for the last two and I have been competing in doubles and representing Pole Princess for the last 3 years. My strength in pole is definitely my upper body. I am fortunate to have a body type that easily builds muscle and I love anything strength based. My achilles in pole….flexibility….

Fitness Benefits of Pole Dancing

Pole dancing has many benefits, from expanding our social circles to improving our confidence, but one of the central benefits of pole is the fitness benefits.

Through pole dancing you can firm and tone during a whole body workout. Gain strength – holding yourself up on a pole, let alone doing tricks is no cakewalk. Seasoned athletes who work out with weight machines and free weights struggle to match the strength our ladies have simply from doing pole.

Pole improves balance and coordination skills. Holding yourself up on the pole, inverted tricks and doing everything on 6” plus platform heels mean that your balance and ability to coordinate your movements improves as well as if you were attending yoga.

The best part of pole classes is that it is a fun way to get fit, classes are enjoyable so they feel less like a workout and more like a fun social group where getting fit is a bonus. Calories are burnt and weight loss is a great side effect of classes but without the terrifying weigh-ins and expectations that other fitness classes may expect when you join up.

But pole doesn’t just work out your body, through the entire class your brain is also engaged, thinking of music, movements, balance and muscle coordination. All of this requires a level of engagement that many of us lack in other repetitive classes where we end up zoning out and going through the motions. The active cognitive engagement coupled with the physical demands of pole mean that even more calories are burnt than if you went to a Body Pump class.

There are a range of classes to match all fitness goals at Pole Princess studios including fitness, flexibility, dance and pole based classes so whatever your fitness goals we should have something to suit your needs.
