Stretching is an essential part of cheerleading. A good stretching routine can help to minimize muscle imbalances, prevent injury, improve your calisthenic ability and your overall cheerleading performance.
ptssc.net has created a guide to stretching that could be useful to our cheerleaders wanting to practice at home and to coaches looking for exercises for a class or training session.
If practising at home, it is advisable that you check with your parents/coaches first before trying poses yourself. Take it easy with the stretches to begin with. Don’t try new stretches on your own without help, and don’t overdo them. Do what your body can handle; stretches should never hurt.
