Considering this is the beginner's corner I agree with wim on the first two, but not the third. I don't see this specific interval as necessary (in this case) and as presented, it'll put undue stress on the knees.

I'm in no way professing that anyone emulate the pros, but if you watch them climb, generally speaking, they're out of the saddle long enough to bring cadence back up and then return to a seated position. I think it would be better to practice similarly (and keep cadence up while doing so). If you're unfamiliar with cadence, there is a recent thread here that may help.

Lastly, for a variety of reasons we all have differing methods of climbing, so IMO it's a questionable goal to "stand pedaling more often' without knowing it'll work for you.
