The Pike Spin, also called the Pipe Spin, is a wonderful pole dance move for building your abdominal strength. It is like hanging leg lifts but having fun while doing it!
Most of all of your weight is being held by one arm on this spin while your second arm hold you away from the pole.
There are a few basic steps to learning this spin:
Your dominant hand/arm is high up on the pole, shoulders down and engaged.
Use your outside leg for momentum. Swing it out wide from the pole.
Once your spin starts use your inside hand to hold your body away from the pole. Don't grip the pole with your hand otherwise it will bring your body in too close to the pole and the spin will not work
Lift both of your legs up immediately, keeping them close together and extended, toes pointed as always!
You can stay and spin in this position to the floor or land in a chair position with your feet on the floor.
