Pole Dancing for Fitness - Seated Climb - as part of the fitness series by GeoBeats. This is a Seated Climb and the reason that we are doing this is to strengthen the upper body muscles. We are using our own body weight to pull ourselves up so that we really do not have to do that many exercises in order to increase our strength dramatically. So what we are going to start doing is having the hands right in front of the face. It can be low or it can be just above the head and we are going to alternate the hands as we move up the pole. You can use your legs to spot yourself in case you feel like ‘oh my gosh, I do not have enough strength to pull myself up.’ The legs are going to help us stand up, so our hands are in front of the face. Use your legs, abdominal muscles contracted and we are going to alternate, hand over hand, until we come up, and then we are going to alternate hand below hand, moving down. You can hover above the ground and move back up, and we do this until we are worn out or little bit, not worn out, but a little tired, and that dramatically increases strength. I am going to go ahead and come down and that is our Seated Climb.
