How to Do Extension Prep into a Cradle | Cheerleading


The extension prep is a stunt that you can
use on the sidelines with poms and signs and in cheerleading routines. The extension prep involves two bases, a back
spot and a top person. Cheerleading skills including stunts, pyramids
and basket tosses should only be performed under the supervision of a qualified adult
and after following the proper skill progressions. Before doing this stunt, make sure that you
have mastered all the basic stunting drills. Here are a few tips for the extension prep. One, bases should generate power using their
legs and drive the top person above their eyes before settling into the extension prep. Two, tops should stand up quickly as the bases
stand up and keep feet shoulder width apart. Three, back spot should help lift the top
person and continue to help support the stunt. That’s how you do an extension prep.
