Thank you so much love!! :) Pole dancing is some GREAT exercise!! I wanted to take classes, but unfortunately they’re really expensive where I am.
Haha yeah no topic is taboo with me ;) <3
perfect timing :P
You should be doing both. Eating before and after. Fueling your workout then replenishing afterwards. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS eat breakfast. Even if it’s something small, eat it. You haven’t eaten all night, you’re literally breaking a fast. Your body needs it. You may not feel like it does, you may not be hungry, but your body really needs those morning calories. You want carbs with some protein 30 min to an hour before your workout (my favorite is toast with avocado or peanut butter). Then after you want protein and some carbs. Most protein powders will provide this for you or if you’re like me and like to stay away from that, beans with corn, a sammich, Almonds, hummus and carrots, chicken or fish… I could go on. You will always be hungry after you workout. Your body burned a bunch of calories, now it wants… as deserves some om noms. :)
FULL BODY CARDIO WORKOUTS

Hmmm I would talk to your doctor on that one. I’ve never had pain in my ear from running and I’ve never heard of anyone else having it. Pain is never a good sign (unless its soreness, then bask in your body’s hard work baby), it’s your body’s way of talking to you. But ear pain isn’t soreness lol your doctor would have more answers for you…
Hahaha!! Perfect timing, I just helped a friend with this. It’s not very creative advice, but it works…. pardon my french, but fuck em! Put your headphones in, head on over, grab your weights and just do it. Let them look, let them stare, they’re probably just checking you out anyway. And from what I gather from my gym fellas, they’re usually impressed you’re there in the first place because most women have this (irrational yet common) fear. Like wow, she’s got the balls to be down here? Respect. If they bother you that much, pretend like they aren’t there. If they say something to you, bust their balls back or something. Or just ignore them, that’s what I tend to do. You’re all there for one reason, to work out, and you shouldn’t let them get in your way. Keep in mind, they’re just a bunch of boys… nothing you can’t handle ;)
Thank you!!! :) Hmmmmm they become very limited if you can’t put any pressure on your knees…. Do you have access to a gym? There are some machines that make leg exercises much easier and most you don’t have to be standing/put much pressure on your knees. Ummm You can try lying down on your stomach and lifting your feet toward your bottom. I put a weight in between my feet to make it a little harder. I know there’s a name for that move, but for the life of me, I can’t remember it right now. There are some moves you can do with a cable like standing leg lifts to the front back and side to side. (front front back back side to side :P) There’s the hip bridge, flutter kicks, a light deadlift, froggy glute lifts, lying side leg lifts, lying inner thigh leg lifts, and sitting quad lifts. Is it all kneeling that bothers you? Or just without proper padding? Because you can do kneeling exercises if you put a rolled up towel or knee pad under your knees. They make flat pads specifically for people with knee problems. If you can do kneeling exercises with a pad, there’s always the donkey kick, firehydrants, knee to shoulder, circles, back leg lifts, and toe taps (side to side).
Hopefully these work out for you lovely!! <3
