    Yep, pole dance can have a sex appeal and some times not.
    Whatever's the purpose though, in order to be at least an intermediate (real) pole dancer you must have above average strenght at arms and core principally.
    I'm talking about this because I am a pole dancer and I know every person who do this dance have a different style.
    But one thing we have in common is that we are pushed to strenghten our bodies each day, not to talk about the stretches for flexibility.

    My arms are the same, I lost 2cm around each thigh and 2 cm off the hips(86 to 84cm) ; but for some reason gained 2 cm around the waist ;o;..(69 to 71) hopefully just because of bloating/ water retention :c siiigghhh
    I thought I ate well already but maybe I need to be stricter on my diet...? :c
    As you're a woman, you're more inclined to gain muscles with more effort than men. But as I've said before, size doesn't mean actually strenght and resistence. ;)
    If you're exercising your body so you must not eat less than you was eating before. What you have to do is eat energetic and healthy food in 3 to 5 balanced meals per day. If you don't do that and stop eating well, your body will think that you're at a scarcity period and will store more fat than it normally does.
