Here are some tips on how to navigate the Pole Dancing Therapist Viral Clinic and how to use the information in real life.

The filtration system

At the top of the page you will see a ‘FILTER’ drop down menu. Here you will find all the relevant tags associated with each video. So if you fancy doing ‘Strength & Conditioning’ for the ‘Hip’ then click both those options and you will find all the relevant videos you need! More content is added every month but we will keep the tags as specific as possible to make this process clear and simple for you.

Video Description

Under each video there is valuable information relating to each individual video. It tells you, what the aim of the video is and why it is helpful to you as a pole dancer. If relevant, you will also be directed to other helpful videos associated with the one you’re currently watching.

If there is a relevant video, maybe a progression or a regression then it has been hyperlinked in the description so that you can easily navigate the site.

Comments

In the comments section you can ask questions or post something that you found useful for other members to see. All comments are visible by all members.

How do I decide what to work on?

It can all seem a bit overwhelming having a load of videos to choose from! So the easiest thing is to first decide the type of session you’re having. Are you at a pole training session, either at the studio or at home? Are you at home without any equipment? Or do you have a specific area of weakness that you need to strengthen? This can help you decide what type of videos you should be searching for.

How much should I do?

This will depend on how much time you have! But some general rules you can follow are:

  1. If you are at the studio and just want some drills to do before jumping in to your training then pick a couple from The Online Portal and do 4 repetitions on both sides. This is a great way to begin your session, after you have warmed up of course!
  2. If you’re at home and just want to create a mini work out, then you can pick anywhere up to 10 exercises (or more if you want!) and create a mini circuit. You can aim to do 3 sets of each exercise of your max reps, this may be anywhere from 5-15 repetitions!

Try not to work the same area in consecutive days, so that the muscles have time to recover.

Save your favourites

As more and more content is added to The Online Portal it may seem overwhelming so there is a ‘favourites’ album. Just click on the ‘add to favourites’ button below a video and it’ll be quick and easy to access when you’re ready to use it.

This can also be useful if you’re creating a circuit then you can save each of the videos involved so they’re easy to access.

Theoretical education

The theoretical videos are here to help create body awareness so that you can learn how to look after your body. These are just extras that you can sit back and enjoy learning from!

The Glossary

The glossary has been made to help you learn and understand the text under each video. Some of the language is quite technical so we have tried to make it as clear as possible. We have hyperlinked any technical terms to the glossary and put some meanings in brackets where necessary.

If you have any questions at all then please contact hello@poledancing-therapist.com. Happy learning!
