    Hi everyone, I am a first year cheerleader for my high school and I am having trouble with my jumps. My posture is hunched and I don’t hit a full straddle in the air. I’m a competitive dancer so my flexibility is pretty good, I have all my splits down so I don’t think it’s a flexibility problem. My abs and core strength are average, could use some work, but I think the biggest problem is leg strength. I never really focused on leg strength so if any of you have any jump exercises (mostly focused on legs) please let me know!
