How Low Can You Go

Workin' The Pole

>> Sunday, August 15, 2010

I went to a bachelorette this weekend and it was extremely fun.

We did an hour and a half pole dance lesson.  Can I just say pole dancing IS NOT A JOKE!  I have a new respect for strippers, they deserve every dollar that they get.  The amount of strength that is required to work that pole is unbelievable and they are truly athletes.

Today, I have bruises and pain in places that I have not had pain in a long time.  I am more sore than and weight training workout.  My arms, my core, my inner thighs are on fire and so sore.  This comes from all the lifts and spins that we learned.  Our teacher was amazing, she was thick and about 5'10", yes she has cellulite but she could work that pole like anyone else.  She could hold herself up on the pole without holding on with her hands.  As for a workout I was sweating up a storm.

I liked this so much, that I am looking for a place that I can pole dance in my city.  I would love to do this once a week.

Fun Times! As you can tell I like to dress up.
As for eating, two thumbs down.  Cheetos, M & M's, alcohol. I will have to get back on track tomorrow.

I have a race on Wed., I am hoping to do it in under 33 minutes, 31 minutes would be nice.

This Sunday's workout song is Taio Cruz, "Dynamite"

I've always wanted to try the pole dancing thing - I've heard it's a great work out... Looks like you had an awesome time.

Keep up the awesome work :)

And yes, I do live in Canada - not that far from Toronto.

I just took my first pole dancing class last night I totally agree with you how INTENSE IT IS! My arms felt like jello this morning! Even though I've been lifting for a while. I have bruises up and down my legs, it's kind of funny. But I seriously cannot wait to take another class! Find a studio around you if you can! I burned like 600 calories within the 50 min class!
