  • Expected Pole Pain?- In lessons perhaps?

    Hi There,

    This is kind of more for the lessons I guess, but I would find it really helpful to know where I can expect to…HURT! When learning new moves?
    So like, I know in learning the Gemini I am expected to hurt in the pinching of the skin just below the knee pit.
    And also… just what you need to do to practice to build up that resistance? Im not sure if i am explaining myself enough, but when you are starting moves from scratch which may be hard for those who are doing them fine now to remember, but just what to expect in bruising, pinching and how to help built up the resistance would be really comforting, and a helpful indicator as to where one is at.

    I know a lot of beginners who get frustrated cause its not so much their strength but their pain resistance that lets them down when practicing new pole moves and it would be really good to have in the information of just what to expect, what is normal when learning, you know. And how to build up tolerance.
    I know when I got my pole at home, one of the things that I found hard in class was the pain between my thighs for moves involving this, so I would go home and just sit on the pole, crossed or legs out, untill i couldn’t take it anymore, everyday, to build up a resistance…. Now.. im good with that pain…ore at least better.
    I remember learing new tricks and trying to get it over and over again, and then one day… that trick just didn’t ‘hurt’ anymore… Its odd, its not like you build up a callus between thighs etc..! lol, but im rambling now.

    I hope i have explained myself well enough. i dont know if others would agree or not though, just a thought.

    I think you have your answer already

    You already seem to understand that moves hurt and after time that pain gets better.

    I don’t know if I can tell you where it will hurt (if that’s what you were asking) because it’s different for every move. But it all gets better. In due time. LOL

    Keep on polin!

    Yes, I eventually do work it out…and assume it to be the case… and that pain is my friend…lol!
    I was more suggesting it could be a good thing to be mentioned in the lesson videos or in the lesson video discriptions.

    Thanks Sissy Buns!

    I think that might be helpful to since for some moves the burn is in really random locations you wouldn’t think it would be. I can’t think of any off the top of my head but I remember learning new moves and sometimes thinking I was doing it wrong because the location of the pain seemed so odd for me conceptually when really I was doing it right and just had to get used to it.

    Yes! Thats exactly what I mean! and you did it with much less words! LOL!

    And that spinning pole and static give different sensations also so what to expect.

    And like also pain in certain areas when you do moves. Like right now my lower left arm, probably around the forearm flexors has been quite sore and feeling strained. Im having difficulty picking up things like saucepans of the stove (i use this as an example to show the direction of the movement that is hurting and feels strained) and Im sure its a building up of strength from things like reverse bracket hold and the like… but it would be good to know whats too far with the muscles and what is just development.
