How To Make a High School Cheerleader Kick High
High school cheerleaders need to be able to kick high to compete. To do so, an athlete must have flexibility, balance, and strength in the legs, hips and core. Using our training techniques during stretching, workouts, and practice will take every aspect of being able to kick high to a higher level. The increase in leg and hip strength, flexibility, and balance will be apparent right away with the use of Kbands. To get a higher kick, a cheerleader needs to have flexibility in the hamstrings, hips, and lower back. An athlete will also need to have strength in the quads, hamstrings, glutes and hips in the leg that is not being kicked. This strength is used to hold the body in place and stay balanced throughout every body movement. When using the Kbands there will be a large increase in hip flexor strength which are the muscles that help us lift our legs up. The increased strength in these muscles can help to prevent injury, and result in a higher kick for high school cheerleaders.
The stunt strap can also help with developing a high kick for any high school cheerleader. Check out our Cheerleader Stretch Video. This video demonstrates the proper technique for stretching with the Stunt Strap. Performing stretches with the Stunt Strap while lying on the ground or standing up will help to improve flexibility.

How to Improve Flexibility
Flexibility is a very important aspect to being a high school cheerleader. It is easy to notice the importance of flexibility in high school cheerleading when watching a high kick, jump, or even going down into the splits. Flexibility is the ability of a joint to move in a full range of motion as well as the elasticity of muscles and ligaments surrounding the joint. Having high flexibility will improve your performance as a cheerleader. When a joint is flexible, an athlete will be able to move through greater range of motion while using less energy. For a high school cheerleader, competing and staying healthy is a crucial element of a career. High flexibility will help to prevent injuries and soreness associated with cheerleading.
