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 thing I’m going to go into is the toe touch. The toe touch is considered an
advanced jump. It’s broken off from the eagle spread, but this is considered an advanced
jump. I’m going to break it down, piece-by-piece giving all instruction. You’re going to start
in a clasp. You’re going to go back to the high V position. Your arms are going to cross
down in front of you. You’re going to dip. Your arms are going to make an X. Your hands
should come down to about knee level. Then you’re going to lift your body back up. When
your body is sitting straight back up is when your legs hit. Then your arms come down with
your legs. When you’re up here you can start in this approach position or you can start
in a high V. If you’re starting in a clasp approach, your arms are going to swing down
the same way. The clasp stays together until you’re at your knees. Then you’re going to
lift and your leg is going to come up and then your legs come down with your hands.
In this jump, you can do it consecutively so you can do just one toe touch. You can
do two toe touches and add it on to a third toe touch. To prep for this jump, you can
start here in a high V and then you can swing and do a T jump. Then you can start here trying
in a clasp approach and you can swing down and do a T jump. That’s good for getting used
to the whip. This is considered the whip when guys, when you swing down and come back up.
So that’s a good exercise. Now, I’m going to demonstrate a toe touch.
