Cheerleading Stunts & Accessories : How to Do Splits for Cheerleading


Hi, I’m Lucy Spain here to show you how to
do splits in cheerleading. Cheerleading splits are a commonly used pose to do when you’re
doing a cheerleading formation. You can also use these splits in your stunts as well, once
the fliers have gotten good at them. It’s important to make sure you stretch out when
doing a cheerleading split. We’re going to concentrate on the left and right splits.
This is going to be a right split with your right leg out forward. First we want to start
out with our right leg forward. We’re going to stretch forward. Make sure your knee is
at a ninety-degree angle. We don’t want our knee to go past our toe. So we’re going to
stretch forward into it. After you do this stretch for about fifteen seconds, you want
to lean back and stretch the underneath of the leg. Stay back in this stretch for about
fifteen minutes. You can lean your chest forward on this one as well. After that, you can simply
slide into your split. A common pose you can use is the high V once you’re in your split.
That’s the right split. The left split is going to be the exact same thing to the other
side. Ninety degree angle. Make sure we get a nice stretch on the inside of your thigh,
lean back and stretch the underneath of our leg, and we’re going to slide into our left
split and hit our high V. The last split is going to be a middle split. That’s going to
be when you’re facing forward. This is the most difficult and will take the most prep
to get into. You can stretch for this one by simply going down over both legs. You can
do a squat stretch and then into your middle split. And that is how you do a cheerleading
split.
