How to do Advanced Cheer Leading Moves : How to Do a Pike


Hi, I’m Shyra from Excel Rebels in Orlando
Lakes, Florida. I’m going to be doing advanced cheer leading on behalf of Expert Village.
The next jump I’m going to teach is the pike jump. This is also considered an advanced
jump. A lot of teams use this in their jump sequence combinations. This jumps going to
be done to the side and it can be turned to the right side or the left side. You can start
in either clasp position or you can start in a high V. Usually they start in a clasp
because it looks better from the side. So in this jump, your arms are going to come
down, also to your knees just like in the other jumps. They swing around and your arms
are going to come here to a front position. Your legs, both right and left legs, are going
to be sitting in a pike position. So in the jump, you should hit your jump in this position.
You should try and round your back out because if you’re sitting straight up, your legs are
going to come up and probably knock you over backwards. So you kind of try to round your
back out. Then your arms and your legs both come down to your side at the same time. So
in this jump, you’re going to come here. Then your arms are up and then you hit straight
down. I’m going to demonstrate the jump for you.

  1. nice jump but my coaches taught us not to do an extra jump when u approach because judges mark it of on the score sheets so you r teaching children wrong technique

  2. there are lots of videos on here about doing toe touches. but make sure you can do a pretty good split 1st thats how i learned

  3. @ emxcullenfan for your toe touch strech alot strech your stradle make sure you strech your splits and practice jumping higher and once you get it don't forget to point your toes

  4. @dxmeck123xx most of the cheerleading jumps land crazy hard, that seems to be the way they do it. What they don't show is how dangerous it is and how easy it is to injure your ankles and knees by landing so flat like that.

  5. Except for your legs are supposed to come up to your arms, not your arms and head down to your legs. They should meet in the middle.

  6. Keep your chest up, it's the proper technique and it helps you look a little higher. Just focus on getting your legs up and out, then back in. Practice practice practice! πŸ™‚ and remember, smile! πŸ˜€ And do facials too. like goofy faces, but not too much. Message me for more info! πŸ™‚ Good luck!
