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)
