The standard pole dancing workout

The basic pole dancing class starts with 10 minutes of warm-up exercises, then 40 minutes of cardio exercises, followed by 10 minutes of cool-down stretches.

You’ll start out as a beginner by learning how to grip the pole. You’ll work on strengthening your arm muscles to be able to lift your whole body weight onto the pole.

As you become more comfortable doing the exercises, you’ll move on to using your legs as support, then your stomach. Later, a combination of two or more of these in more complex routines.

If you’re uncomfortable with the idea of pole dancing at first, just think of the pole as your dance partner.

Any shyness you may have will quickly be cast away as you get into it and enjoy the good feelings the workout gives you, and as you see other women in the class doing the same things.
