    That's nice! Just don't eat more meat, try to eat as much as you was eating before, and instead of just using meat for the protein gain try to diversify your protein source! Butter, beans, spinach etc are a good exemple.
    A diverse diet is the key for a healthy alimentation.

    Oh, that's so nice that you know some pole dancer and recognizes our work! <3

    You don't need to be sexy in public in order to be a pole dancer. I'm not sexy at all. There's so many gorgeous dancers out there that don't care that much about being sexy.
    Watch this video.

Posture is more what I'm trying to focus on since I have a desk job.
    Oh, that's cool! I also have hypermobility so I can understand. You won't gain real streanght and resistence so easily exactly because of that.
    And yeah you should focus on your posture since I don't want you to loose your back flexibility. ;;
