Toe Touch Drills

Toe Touch Drills, from your About Cheerleading Guide.
Rahma's insight:

This article is extremely useful! I have worked on these exercises daily and I would like to believe that my jumps have improved. I have person experience that this article is useful and will actually improve your jumps. Although while I increased the leg lifts to 20-25 seconds because I thought the 10 seconds was to easy. This will make you very sore! But its worth it once you have done these for about a week straight you will start to see results. Also your kicks will also improve from doing these exercises. This article has already helped me towards my goal in  improving my toe touch.

Skills and Drills – Jumps

Learn how to have great jumps in cheerleading
Rahma's insight:

This article is very useful to me and will help improve my jumps greatly. This article is by Varsity which makes pretty much all of our cheer outfits. Varsity focuses on cheer and dance so I think this is a creditable source. There are 4 different exercises described and gives counts and amount of reps. I feel that if I were to do each of these exercises about once or twice a week at least, my jumps will improve greatly by cheer tryouts. This will improve my chances of making the CWU cheer team since my jumps are not my strong point in cheer.

Exercises or Stretches to Help the Hips

Exercises or Stretches to Help the Hips | Cheerleading stretches | Scoop.it
Exercises or Stretches to Help the Hips. Increasing your hip strength and flexibility prevents potential injuries, strains or muscle weakness.
Rahma's insight:

By increasing the strength and flexibility in your hips you can ultimately increase the hieght of your jumps and overall improve the look of your jumps. This article describes one stretch and three different exercises that will help strengthen your hips. The first stretch is the kneeling hip flexor stretch, this is basically a lunge and shifting your weight forward which is pretty basic and easy. The other three are exercises, if you were to do them daily I believe that your jumps will improve greatly in just a couple of days. I am willing to do these exercises to help my chances in making the CWU cheer team, which is my main goal! I do think this article is helpfull and will help me towards all of my goals, improving my toe touch, learning to do a back handspring and joining the CWU cheer team.
