Now that I have your attention...this post really is about strippers. I will admit that I rolled my eyes the first time someone suggested I watch this video; however, after the first few minutes I was in awe! These women train their bodies to do things that are astounding. So before you judge based on an exotic dancer in platform high heels, think of the athleticism that's required to pull off these moves. It's pretty badass! So this was my reasoning for wanting a pole about six months ago. I still don't have one and my body is no where close to what it's going to take for me to hold my own body weight...but a girl can dream.
I don't want anyone to ever see me try any of this, but I think it would be an amazing way to get into shape. There are even some tutorial videos online about different technical moves that are extremely far too advanced for anyone like me, but one day, I hope to at least try!
