Okay but I’d like to talk about some of the implications in the final scenes of YoI?
Specifically the fact that YUURI CAN POLE DANCE
first off, let’s address the fact that someone took the time to set up a
pole in that ballroom. Why was that there? Was it there the whole time? If so is it jsut permanently installed there? Did
someone stop everything to set that up? Does Chris just keep one handy
at all times just in case??? I HAVE QUESTIONS
But aside from that. Again.
Yuuri can pole dance. And I mean, he didn’t just get drunk and wobble
around a pole. This. Boy. Has. Taken. Classes.
Yuuri is doing here is called flag pole. (Chris looks like he’s doing a
cross knee/cross ankle, except his legs are too far apart so… he’s
not really doing any real pole move I’m aware of. Ignore him)
Anyway, flag pole require that you grip the pol with our hands, and between on biceps and your side, and hold your body parallel to the floor (using your lower arm as a bit of a shelf for support) Aaaaaand that’s it. Aside form the slight support from that lower arm, everything else is pure upper body and core strength.
Then there’s this.
MOTHERFUCKER LOVELY MOVE
Is called Superman.
“That doesn’t look nearly as hard as the first one!” you might say. And strength-wise, you’re right. It’s not.
But you know what it is?
Lemme tell you friends, that skin right between your sweet sweet thighs is very soft and delicate and sensitive and is NOT USED TO HAVING TO GRIP TIGHT TO A METAL POLE.
You ever slid down something metal or plastic and your skin stuck to it and got rubbed raw from the friction? Yeah, it’s like that. On your delicate inner thighs. Pole dancers literally have to condition and their skin for this kind of stuff. You practice and practice till your muscles are strong enough to take on most of the support and your skin toughens up.
That’s not even counting the advanced to semi-advanced moves you have to know to get into either position while on the pole. These aren’t beginner moves.
I’ve been taking pole for almost two years, I’m in lv 2, and I’m STILL working on these moves.
YUURI IS TAKING ADVANCED POLE DANCING CLASSES YOU GUYS
