Cheerleading requires shoulder strength, arm strength and back strength in order to perform great jumps and stunts. The Myosource Kinetic Bands / Cheer Jump Bands upper body kit is great for toning and firming the arms, shoulders and back muscles. Four levels of resistance offers options to train for a beginner, intermediate, advanced or power level cheerleader. The 4 levels of resistance can be used individually, or more than one at a time as cheerleaders advance.
Upper body strength is essential for all cheerleaders in order to perform stunts and jumps. Cheerleaders also need upper body strength for tumbling, lifting, and balancing.
Fliers: Cheerleading Fliers have to tighten their muscles while being lifted into the air. If their body does not remain tight it is hard to balance and remain in the proper position.
Bases: Cheerleading Bases have to utilize their upper body strength in order to lift their flier up over their head and to hold their flier in position throughout each stunt.
