What muscles are used during Pole Dancing?

written by Salis Charming

The number of calories burned during pole dancing can vary depending on factors like intensity, duration, individual weight, and the specific moves performed. On average, a one-hour session of moderate to intense pole dancing can burn anywhere from 250 to 400 calories.

However, this estimate can vary significantly from person to person. Pole dancing is not only a great workout for burning calories but also for building strength, flexibility, and coordination.

Pole dancing is a full-body workout that engages a wide range of muscles throughout the body. On average, pole dancing can activate around 30 different muscles groups, including:

Upper body muscles: such as the shoulders, arms, chest, and back muscles (latissimus dorsi, rhomboids, trapezius).

Core muscles: including the abdominals, obliques, and lower back muscles.

Lower body muscles: such as the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, calves, and inner thighs.

Stabilizer muscles: various smaller muscles throughout the body that help maintain balance and control during movements.

Engaging so many muscle groups simultaneously is one of the reasons why pole dancing is considered an effective total-body workout for building strength, endurance, and flexibility.
