  • AHHH!! Ok couple of questions

    Posted by JorShi on March 21, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Hello ladies and gents. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif ok so I was poling tonight cause I have a little liquor in my system so I got a little daring while playing. (worry, I am of age, lol) but I just had a few questions for ya’ll.

    1- please tell me that the pain between my thighs when I do the CAR will go away eventually. OMG it feels like my skin is being pulled off my body.

    2- Where do you sit in your pole sit? (leg position) It seems like I don’t ever get the right setting. It either feels way to close to my crotch or to far up my legs that it feels like i cant even squeeze as tight?

    I am planning on taking classes at the studio near me cause soon there passes will be a killer deal. Do you think this will help a lot? With my dancing and how to do things.

    I feel like V has helped me get the moves and now with taking classes at Studio Soriee will just help improve and sharpen my moves and help with new ones. My goal is to compete in a competition here next year. I love poling and now I want to show the people in my life that I am not a failure. I can do something I can stick my mind to. And this is something I feel passionate about. I cant move like all you beautiful women. I have watched how rsmf (Rena) has become very graceful and dances beautiful. So, Im sure I will be able to do it But I really want to be able to dance like that. One day I want to participate in the USPDF. Even if I am 25. I will do it. Is this crazy?

    Thanks ya’ll

    xoxo-Shi

    Hi!

    1. Yes, the pain will go away, your skin and muscles get used to gripping the pole! It does take a few weeks though.

    2. I sit as close to my crotch as I can – your thighs are wider towards your crotch so you get a better grip.

    Taking classes definitely helps a lot, sometimes it takes ages to figure out what you’re doing wrong with a move if you’re on your own, but if instructors are there they can give you constructive criticism straight away. Oh, and classes are really fun and motivating as well!

    I think it’s really good to set yourself aims and work towards them, if you work hard I’m sure you’ll make it into a competition! Good luck! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

    I think you can do anything you set your mind to and i think thats an AWESOME goal! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif Before you know it you’re going to be winning comps left and right!

    As far as the burn, it will go away eventually. Once your body gets comfortable with the move and you find what spot is comfortable for you it will get alot better. And as far as the pole sit, I also try to keep the pole as close to my crotch as possible. I just feel more secure there, but I’m sure it may vary from person to person- thats just my personal experience https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

    Good luck girl! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif

    When I first started sitting I concentrated more in keeping my one foot locked behind the pole (as you do for climbing) and then crossing the other leg over that one. This seemed to take the pull off the inner legs and concentrate it more to the foot and knee.

    I agree! If I remember correctly my first few didn’t even look like a sit as I was still getting used to the feeling and the grip. You’ve just got to play around until you feel comfortable in it and find where’s right for you, my friends looks completely different to mine, she sits with the pole much further forward on her thighs whilst mines much nearer my crotch.

    I can do the pole sit without any problems. Well, I stay put, ha ha my main problem is when I go to move into another move. It just kills. I finally was able to do the CKR and it hurts and leaves the funniest looking bruises https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_lol.gif

    don’t worry the pain and bruising gets better!! Don’t forget to squeeze with your muscles too and not just rely on the skin. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_sunny.gif

    Niqui is bad-ASS. Every time I see one of her strength moves I am just flabbergasted. I’d like to see a whole dance video from her (hint hint cough cough lol).

    JorShi,

    I wanted to chime in on the age issue. I’m 27 right now and I’m coming up on a year of poling sometime soon and I’m intending to participate in competitions, should I become eligible for any that allow male participants. I have also been very concerned about the age issue, because many of the ladies in our beautiful pole world are winning titles at ages younger than the age at which I began pole! And as happy as I am for the young bucks, this can also be disheartening because I didn’t have the luxury of discovering pole at a younger age. However I take great heart in some of the performances delivered by the 30-something pole dancers, and also by the titles that they win!

    Becca Butcher is 29 and has been pole dancing for less than two years I believe. This is not a big age stretch, but she is still a very successful pole dancing performer and competitor at an age greater than our own. I’m a big fan! It won’t surprise me in the slightest if she earns a national title of some kind in the upcoming years. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nddpqKchyos" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

    At the time that this beautiful pole performance was delivered, Galina Troschenko was 35 years old. This performance won her the Spanish national title that year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MdOhgpPmcI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

    Also age 35 was Maxine Betts, delivering this performance which won her the UK title last year! This means she will be representing the UK at the world championships in Jamaica this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogmexeHu4lI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
    When she competes at the world competition, she will be 36 https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

    Let’s not forget the beautiful Pantera, who is still going strong at 32, and who inspired the successful career now enjoyed by Jenyne Butterfly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pVk78uiB6I" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

    Then there is our own lovely Veena, whose age you can discern from her profile https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif but who doesn’t look a day older than either of us. This is one of the Veena videos that inspired me in a tremendous way when I had barely begun poling last Summer. The video is almost a year old, but the movement in the video is still cutting edge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucB4gapPeo4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

    So anyway, JorShi, when I start to really feel afraid about my age (which is often) I think about these various highly successful pole dancers. I believe that it is quite possible that if I do the things I ought in order to remain healthy and maintain and improve the level of my poling, that I can continue to have performance opportunities even if I don’t get to compete at the top level. But with that said, I can’t think of a single good reason not to continue refining my pole dancing skills until they are sufficient to be competitive. And even if I never get to compete, I still want to keep refining them! Anyhow, I hope you can take heart in these inspirational ladies and their performances the way that I do. It’s harder to believe when WE are the ones doing the aging https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_bigsmurf.gif but it’s true, age really is just a number, not a fitness level or a measurement of skills. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_thumleft.gif

    So in short, no! You are not crazy!
