How to make your jumps higher for cheerleading

Report as

Im a cheerleader and jumps go ABOVE my waist.I have a photo of it. When i first started cheering (4 years ago) there wee total crap. STRETCH ALOT. like all the time. practice jumping. when you jump it shoul feel like your legs are gliding up and down. And lnd softly thats how u know you did it right. It should feel like flying,. haha. thats ow mine feel. and practice rotating your hips out while you jump. to get the feel, stand up, lift your leg and rotate your hip back. now do that with both legs while jumping. they will look much more bigger. and try everything you can to keep your chest UP. that makes them look WAAAY better.

Yes. I did straddle, going to the middle as far as you can go does the most help, and doing the middle splits. just try every day. stretch both legs to. Another one i did is you can lay on your back on the ground and put you butt on the wall and spread your legs open on the wall. then gravity pulls them down to stretch for you or you can have someone pull them down farther. if you practice everyday, you will have a good jump no problem(:

To make high jumps in cheerleading, you need to practice much on stretching, toe touching while seated and straddle lifts. These will enable you to be much flexible when making the higher jumps. Get more tips on http://www.livestrong.com/article/155589-ways-to-jump-higher-for-cheerleading-jumps/.
