So your flyer already spends 8-10 hours per week at the gym between team practices, tumbling and stunting classes. Sadly though, it’s not enough for flyers to only work skills, body positions and technique at the gym.
Because flyers make up a small portion of the team, they typically get less individualized work during regular practices. Unless your athlete is in a flyer or stunt training class, they may not be getting enough focused practice on flyer skills.
This is why it is so important to train at home throughout the week. It should go without saying that ALL cheerleaders should be stretching on a daily basis. Though, flyers should be doing intensive stretching every day.
