How to do Advanced Cheer Leading Moves : How to Do Jump Builders


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 section that I’m going to cover are jump builders. These exercises help to improve
your jumps. Building muscles that are used specifically for cheer leading jumps. The
muscle that you’re targeting are your hip flexor. You’re going to start with your hands
in a T and your going to pick both sides, actually choose a side and you’re going to
lift your leg up and then straight back down. Keeping it in control, snapping your leg up.
This is the motion that you want to hit like in a toe touch or a side hurdler and stuff.
Bringing your leg up and then down. Make sure you’re controlling it and then you can switch
to the other side. Try and keep your body straight up and down. Arms at a T, then you
let your leg come up. Try to get your leg right behind your hand. This is the motion
you’ve got to get fast. When you’re doing a toe touch, it’s a whip up and then a whip
back down with your feet together, so you’re getting that here. You’re building your hip
flexor muscle and you’re getting that whip motion. The next one, you’re going to sit
in a straddle position. Place one hand in front and one hand in back. You’re going to
lift your leg and slowly pulse this muscle. This is concentrating on your hip flexor muscle.
This is getting the whole area that we’re going to use to pull the toe touch football
jumps. Switch to the other side. You can lean back just a little bit to help with this motion.
When you’re doing a jump you want to rotate your hips forward. Tuck your hips under. So,
when you jump, you’re pulling under this way and your hips are rotating just like you do
in this exercise.

  1. nothing improves your jumps better than just doing the jumps themselves. what better way to work EVERY muscle you use during the jump than just doing the jump? people want some secret exercise to improve jumps, but the secret is THERE IS NO SECRET. just do the jumps, do a lot of them and do them often.

  2. but you waste time because you build muscles by just DOING the jump. and that way you don't get just ONE at a time. you get them all. trust me, i know a thing or two about building muscles. i'm in my final semester of Physical Therapy school.

  3. @XxXSceneTasticXxX it is normal to favor one side, that just means u r dominant right, and need a little more work on the left C: i am the same way, dont worry, its normal, lol
