What is pole exercise?


First of all, let’s get the terms out the way. This is not any sort of “muscle building” exercise, and I want to make that absolutely clear. For one thing, it does NOT involve lifting weights like Olympic weightlifting or any sort of “body building” workout, unless you count high reps, heavy compound lifts.

The exercise, known as a “Pole” Exercise, is not meant to “build” a specific body part (your arm, shoulder, chest, or neck), it is meant to “strengthen” that body part. It is a way to “strengthen” the ability to move the rest of your body through, and to “strengthen” your “muscle memory”. You can, of course, use a full squat to enhance your “muscle memory” and strengthen your “strength”… but you will need to train hard for some time to build up the strength to move much through the motions of the “strong pole”. The idea is a bit more complex than that, but it is the same basic principle.

What does “pole” mean?

As mentioned above, this exercise is NOT called the “Pole”, and it is not a gymnastics “pole”. This is a type of exercise which is used mainly to exercise the abdominal muscles in a very specific part of the body, and is done with the body in a straight line. The “pole” position is not something which someone can “just pick up and go”, rather, its a position of standing straight and upright, with your body parallel to the ground, and the arms straight out behind you. You do not lower yourself slowly, but rather you move upwards until the bottom of your motion is reached. With the exception of the first and second exercises, its all about taking a long time to move upwards.

What does “stand” pose do? How does it work?

Standing in a “Stand Pose” poses a variety of health benefits. In these poses, your body is directly under your head and neck when you’re performing it. The “pose” creates a natural feeling of pressure on the diaphragm. This may also be caused by the fact when you perform a certain movement in the “Stand Pose”, your body is moved up through your diaphragm. This allows the muscles involved in breathing to be worked and improves the quality of your breath. It also increases the surface area of the chest, and thereby your cardiovascular flexibility
