You love cheerleading, you love music, you want to burn some calories. Cheerleading falls right into your fitness goals. Let’s take a look at how cheerleading keeps girls fit.
Being thrown in the air is no easy task. For all of you trying to work your core muscles, this should definitely go down on your fitness bucket list. It strengthens your core muscles and hones your balancing skills. It is an overall body workout focussing on flexibility, balance, stamina, cardiovascular endurance, and core strength. Definitely what you’d be looking for in a workout!
How could you ever get bored when you are jumping, lifting, being lifted and thrown in the air? This is such an energising workout; you will be more pumped at the end of your workout than when you started. The pulsating music and dynamic moves will surely keep you moving till the end of your class.
If you are equating this to a dance cardio workout you are underestimating what cheerleading can do. Cheerleading calls for cardio as well as strength. Certain moves focus on sculpting the body while others focus on burning calories. The emphasis changes every minute of your workout.
You will work your mind as well as your body. This is a unique quality in cheerleading. All the multitasking you have to do gives your brain working every minute. Cheerleading leads to increased body awareness and helps you stay focussed on your moves and calls on your body coordination skills.
It’s time to put on that cute outfit and grab some pom-poms!
