Leg Warmers - A Practical Pole Purpose?

Hello All! I recently came across a tutorial that indicated it was beneficial to pole in leg warmers because it encourages your thighs and knees to do the work when gripping the pole with your legs. Is this the case? To me, the look of leg warmers is adorable (albeit a little, well....warm) and I would certainly love to incorporate them into my dancing if it meant less bruising and a new look. However, I'm next to naked when I pole just for that skin grip contact. Would wearing leg warmers hurt or hinder my progress? Warmest thanks💜

Honestly, if you're very new to pole don't worry about wearing leg warmers. A short sock on the climbing foot is helpful to prevent using the foot too much. Only having your knees to use would be rough until your climb skills are very good. You should be using your calf and shin too, not just the thighs.

Since getting suede boots (no grip), my climbing has improved a lot, I rely so much more on my knees and less on the feet. It means you can point yourfeet better.

But Veena is right, socks would do the trick too XD
