Cheerleading Stunts: How to Increase Flexibility for Your Scorpion and Heel Stretch

Cheerleading Stunts: How to Increase Flexibility for Your Scorpion and Heel Stretch


Speaker 1: All right. Now that we’ve gotten
Megan good and stretched out, as we were building her leg strength. Megan has been out of cheerleading
for about a year. She’s in college now and we’re going to try to get her back in mid-season
form by training her with the bands and going through some basic exercises.
Megan is going to work on her scorpion. She’s going to grab that back foot and bring it
up. Another one on the keys to getting your scorpion is again being good and stretched
out, being flexible, stretching out that lower back, stretching out that hamstring, and actually,
stretching out your upper body. You need to be able to pull those arms back,
grab that foot, pull it up. Another key to your scorpion is being able to balance with
that down foot. That foot and those hips and your legs have to be strong enough to hold
and balance your body while you bring that leg up. So Megan’s going to try one more time.
See how she’s grabbing the foot. Just like that she’s bringing it up and holding it,
not very long. All right, Megan is going to try a heel stretch
now. We’re going to make this part of our, “Megan’s a freshman in college; get back in
shape program.” So she’s going to try her heel stretch. We’ve got her stretched out
and ready to go. Megan: Give it a try.
Speaker 1: Pretty good for an old gal of 18, eh? Four time national champion, but ladies
you lose it fast.
