Pole dancing is tons of fun...we all know that! But did you know that you can use your dance pole as a vertical home gym to help build the strength you'll need to do all those spins and lifts safely?

It's true! But I've had so many questions over the years about exactly how to build sport specific strength.

In fact, so many people have asked me about pole exercises that I finally decided to make a DVD to help you get stronger.

More on that in a minute, but first I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you so you can get a feel for just how useful that piece of steel can be.

Just click on any of the photos shown below to see full instructions, more demo photos and safety tips.

(The exercises shown below are generally safe for most people in reasonable physical condition. However, as much as I hope common sense will prevail, here's my disclaimer.)


Ready? Here We Go!

This exercise is a great way to start safely building the strength needed for lifts, holds and spins.

Once you can do a few sets of these, you can graduate to the kneeling and standing versions for more challenge.

Level: Beginner (with intermediate & advanced options)

You'll also be able to work on your split grip, which is a commonly used grip with many intermediate and advanced moves.

This is an excellent exercise for toning your butt.

I used to tell my students, "if you don't feel these the next day, call me, because something is definitely wrong!"

If you want tight buns too, this is the exercise for you!
