Adventures In Pole Dancing: I Haz A Hurt…Again

[ 1 ] August 3, 2011 |

That looks a little worse than it is but I did mention that pole dancing comes with random pain every now and then. I have a strained wrist from possibly doing a push-pull spin. I can’t find a video for it but it’s exactly what it sounds like–one arm is pushing the pole while the other arm is pulling as you spin your body around. It’s also known as the Carousel or the Peter Pan. People who pole know that it’s a wrist killer. In this case, I didn’t even realize  that I was hurt until after class. I guess I was on an adrenaline high during practice.

But I’m a trooper. Growing up, I injured my wrist a lot dancing so this is nothing new. Plus, I don’t baby my injuries but I take proper care at the same time so the healing process will hopefully be fast and smooth. It’s much better now than it was a week ago. I haven’t completely lost use of it but it still hurts so push pulling won’t be happening for at least another week or two. Such is pole life…

By the way, people have been asking me where I pole, I go to Shockra Studio. I’ll talk about this place in more detail soon.
