THE WRIST SIT
Also known as the "Hello Boys" and the "Eye Opener", the Wrist Sit is a pole dance trick that is fun and sexy to use when up on the pole.
There are a few basic steps to performing this move:
- Climb the pole and get into a pole sit with your legs crossed over one another and extended.
- Holding the pole with one hand right in front of your face, lean back and reach down below your bottom to grasp the pole in a baseball grip.
- Lean back and let your legs go upwards, still keeping them crossed.
- When you feel your grip with both hands is secure, uncross your legs and shift your bottom/hips to one side of the pole (almost to where the pole is touching only one of your butt cheeks) and extend your legs out in a 'V'
- You are not going to be actually 'sitting' on your wrist - you don't want your weight on your wrist (even though it is called a wrist sit!) but your body is kind of leaning onto your back arm.
Here is a video clip by Pole Dance Community on how the move is performed:
- Make sure and have a secure grip as well as hold on to the pole with your upper arm; don't let all of your weight rest on your lower arm
- Try learning the trick without extended your legs out into an open v at first; lean back holding onto the pole in the steps described above and tucking your legs towards your chest. Inch them out a little at a time.
- Use the wrist sit as an accent move, a quick open-your-legs splay or slowly peel them open as you gain more strength in a slower routine
