We investigated the physical and physiological demands of a pole dancer's performance studied during a simulated competition, lasting 3 min 30 seconds. One single woman pole dancer (age: 22 years; height: 1.56 m; body weight: 52 kg; BMI: 21.4 kg·nr2; estimated HRmax: 192.6 bpm) participated in the study. Physical data pertaining to accelerations and rotational values were collected by the means of a tri-axial accelerometer device integrating three gyroscopes. A complete video footage was recorded using four video cameras, using different sampling rates. Blood pressure (BP), heart rates (HR), breathing rates (BR), blood lactate concentrations (Bla-) were recorded during the performance. Accelerations (positive and negative), along the vertical axis reached ≈2G and rotational movements around the pole, reached ≈400°/s. BP values ranged from 120/75 before and to 145/58 mmHg at the end of performance, respectively. HRs reached a peak value of ≈96% of the maximal estimated heart rate (HRmax) and a mean %HRmax of 92.85±3.15% during the simulated competition. BR reached a peak value of 37 bpm and a mean value during competition of 31.87±3.42 bpm. Blaranged from 10.2 to 10.7 mmol/L measured at 1 min and 5 min after the completion of the competition, respectively. The results of this case study confirm that the Pole dance is a performing art requiring heavy physiological and physical demands on the performers. Specific training routines should be designed in order to cope efficiently with this physical activity, taking into account the performance model we provided with this study.
