Hi, I'm Stephanie Prosenjak from Cherry Creek Dance, here to tell you how to build strength to be a cheerleading base. We're going to have a few of our dancers demonstrate. First, they are going to do a few crunches. You want to make sure that you squeeze your core to your backbone. You do full sit ups and you do some contractions. Next, we're going to roll over and do a plank. This one is great for an overall body strengthener. So, they'll hold this position, making sure that their body is completely straight. Next is triceps. You make your body in a diagonal line, you squeeze your hands in line with your armpits and then you countdown and go back up. And last for our arms, we will do regular push ups. Again, just concentrating on your body, staying in straight line. Next, we have back exercises. This is great strengthener for your shoulders and your whole entire back. You lay on your stomach, your hands and arms can go in three different positions which the girls will demonstrate. You just lift up; you want to these movements a little bit slower so you can feel all of your muscles incorporated. Next, we have a strengthener for your legs. This is great for your jumps or just being able to hold someone's weight. You start in a flat back position. You bend your knees and your back stays at a 90 degree angle. You bend, straighten, bend and jump. Those are a few tips that I have for you for building strength for being a cheerleading base. I'm Stephanie Prosenjak from Cherry Creek Dance.
