LOL Cheerleaders are tough! My younger sister was a cheerleader and of course, was friends with bunches of cheerleaders.
Her closest friend could do jumps back in the late 70's that I don't see cheerleaders with tons of background in gymnastics doing! She was amazing.
when they were in their early 30's my younger cousin was in the drill team and her bff was a cheerleader. They got out there with my sister and her friend and were stunned that an "old chick" could still out jump them on Russians and something my sister called a Herky? I believe that is right! Her bff went on after high school to be CL at University of Houston, a Derrick Doll for The Oilers football team and a NCA professional cheerleader. LOL I couldn't kick above my freaking knee if my life had depended on it! My sister is 52 and still has "cheerleader legs"
for those joints. It helps!
