Ever wondered how our wonderful strippers at 4Play Lounge are able to dance at the pole all night? It takes a lot more energy and skill than you might imagine. Jennifer Lopez has been learning how to pole dance for her upcoming film, ‘Hustlers’, in which she plays a stripper. She gives an insight into one of the more popular fitness activities to come out of strip clubs and into the mainstream…
Training to be a Pole Dancer
Jennifer Lopez has talked about how hard it has been to learn how to pole dance due to the energy needed and because of the acrobatic nature of the dance. JLo and her partner A-Rod both decided to cut out sugar and refined carbohydrates from their diets to help her get fit for the role. She explained that her trainer had suggested it and she got headaches and felt quite spaced out when she first began the elimination. JLo said that she understood this to be normal and realised that she had obviously been addicted to sugar.
JLo has been training at the pole to ensure she looks every inch the part of a pole dancer in her new film. She said it’s extremely hard and that she has bruises everywhere from the training. She announced that it isn’t all about being sexy! Pole dancing is more about body alignment, muscle engagement and coordination and can be used as a cardiovascular activity once someone is trained.
The film is based on ‘The Hustlers at Scores’, an article written back in 2015 by Jessica Pressler. It’s a modern take on Robin Hood in which a group of intelligent women (former strippers) steal from men working on Wall Street. It’s a heist film, if you will. It’s another way of looking at male and female gender roles and what each gender is valued for and the parts they play (and are expected to play) in reality. Men tend to be valued for earning the money, whereas women seem to be valued for how they look, their beauty. An interesting way to present such an in-depth and complicated discussion, but one worth watching!
