    Cheerleading stunt power

    Hello I am a cheerleader and was wondering if anyone has any specific exercises for me.

    First let me explain what I’m trying to do, I want to get my toss better.

    Basically this is what a toss consists of:

    1) Start with hands on hips of the girl
    2) Dip with the girl and when she jumps stand up
    3) As she goes up I extend my arms strait up with her body
    4) When my arms are extended I “Flick” with my hands and let go
    5) Catch the girl with arms extended over head

    A flick is basically like throwing a Frisbee you use your wrist and hands at the same time to throw a little bit more. Also my arms have to be bent the whole time until I catch her.

    My problem is I’m not very explosive. Anyone have any exercises that can speed up and add to power of this type of motion? (Basically I want to throw the bitch higher)

    Power Cleans seem like they would help you. Here is a link that shows and explains what they are:

    Power snatch.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John

    What everyone else said. Olympic lifts.

    Also, you could try using kettle bells if you have access to them because they might simulate lifting a person more closely than a barbell would.

    Me too.

    Being a male cheerleader has to be a great gig. For all the wrong reasons of course :evillaugh
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
