So you’ve made a resolution to get fit and have fun learning to pole dance this year. Perhaps you even got a new pole for Christmas.
You’ve watched the videos on YouTube, drinking in the graceful spins and inverts. Now it’s your turn.
But something’s not quite right. Have you started a spin and ended up on the floor half way round? Do your hands slip down the pole when you’re actually trying to lift yourself up?
A lot of people have problems slipping instead of gripping when they first start pole dancing. And though it’s less common, some people have the opposite problem – they just stick too much.
Unfortunately it’s not something that will ever go away completely, but it will lessen dramatically as your pole dancing improves.
Here are some of the most common things to look out for, along with links to articles that go into extra detail if you’d like to read a bit more. Read more →

I’ve actually been working on the Pole Exercise redesign for a while, but I’ve only recently had the chance to devote some serious hours to finishing it off. It went live this morning and is now online for your viewing pleasure.
It’s pole dancing, but not as we know it. Many of the moves look uncannily familiar, but mallakhamb is actually an ancient form of exercise from India dating back over 800 years.
I found this incredible video via one of the lovely people on the Body and Pole forum. Take a look:

Breasts and pole dancing? Isn’t this site supposed to be about exercise and fitness?
Over the past few months, I’ve received quite a few questions from women worried about whether large breasts are a problem for pole dancing.
The short answer is no. Whatever your body – and breast – size, you can get a lot out of pole dancing.
But you may need to be a bit more careful in some circumstances. Libby, instructor on the Pole Exercise DVD and 34FF, is all too familiar with these issues, and she draws on her experience to cover the most important points here. Although principally aimed at the more amply-endowed lady, her tips will hopefully help everyone get the most out of their pole dancing experience!
This week’s instalment of Living with Kimberly Stewart is all about pole dancing!
Lucy and her fellow flatmates are set the task of performing a one minute dance routine for Kimberly and Peter Stringfellow at his club in Central London. AJ from Pineapple Dance Studios is one of the teachers brought in to help the flatmates, and Lucy does her best to help everyone out too.
It girl Kimberly Stewart (daughter of Rod Stewart) is looking for two perfect flatmates to share her swanky new London pad while she launches her career in the UK.
The show follows Kimberly Stewart as she jet sets from LA to London, offering a tantalising glimpse into her life. The potential flatmates must perform a variety of tasks, from interior design to extreme sports.
Why are we talking about this? Well, if you tune into the show, you will probably see someone you recognise going into the house and take on some incredible challenges in a bid to become one of the final two!
The seated spinner is a simple but beautiful spin that Libby (in the video clip) has always performed with style and poise. The spin helps to develop your arm strength, and works out your core muscles too as you move round the pole.
Is your pole dirty and slippery? Struggling to remove those stubborn stains? Fear not – we have the answers right here! Keep your pole looking shinier than shiny with
