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.
