So there's a lot of cheerleaders who train at home. I wanna know how you can keep up with this! I just cant stick to anything! LOL:)

1. Do you train at home, gym, or both?
2. How long do you train at home, gym, or both?
3. Do you condition? If so, what do you do?
4. Do you eat a balanced diet and exercise in part of your training routine?
5. Do you stretch everyday? And does that help you get more flexible?
6. Do you set aside days for different things to train/ work on? (e.i. Mondays- train for jumps: Tuesdays- train for stunts: etc.) ? What's your schedule like?

1. Of course I train at the gym, but I also stretch a lot at home and condition sometimes also
2. Gym- 6 hours/ week; home- 20-30 mins/day, maybe 3 days per week?
3. Personally nothing very intense. Occasionally ab stuff, bu I actually enjoy ab workouts haha :)
4. I eat what I want.. but (and I don't mean to brag) I don't have to worry about getting in shape sooo I guess I don't have to watch what I eat :p
5. At first I did, when I wasn't flexible- it helped boatloads. Now I only stretch a few days a week, and it depends on how "hard" I stretch if I increases, or just maintains my flexibility
6. Nope, I usually just do something on the 2 or 3 of the days that I don't practice
7. Uh, personally, I don't train hard enough at home that it would make too much of a difference, but if you really work on your stuff you'll see a big increase in your strength, stamina, and/or flexibility overtime :)
You just have to stick to it!! Good luck :)
 
1. Do you train at home, gym, or both? both
2. How long do you train at home, gym, or both? at home i have to do exercises for my knees which takes about 3 minutes. 3 times a week. at the gym about an hour 3 times a week.
3. Do you condition? If so, what do you do? exercises for my knees. at the gym i tumble and condition
4. Do you eat a balanced diet and exercise in part of your training routine? no lol
5. Do you stretch everyday? And does that help you get more flexible? YES i have made myself stretch everyday and my jumps are sooooo much better now
6. Do you set aside days for different things to train/ work on? (e.i. Mondays- train for jumps: Tuesdays- train for stunts: etc.) ? What's your schedule like? uhhh i tumble on mondays and wednesdays? practice on tuesdays and saturdays.
7. If you do train, do you see a difference on how you are in cheerleading? Does training help you become a better cheerleader? i have to do my knee exercises to keep from having surgery so yes in the end it does help, but im still gonna have to have surgery. and conditioning has helped me get through my routines!
 
1. I usually work out at my cheer gym twice a week, I try to make it to my regular gym maybe once a week If possible, and I run at my house
2. My private lessons are an hour each, if I go to the gym I'll be there maybe an hour, and I usually run for 30 minutes
3. Conditioning is key for me. I condition at the end of my private lessons. I stretch and tone my stomach and legs.
4. I have to eat a balanced diet. My body cannot handle processed foods and high fat items. I tend to go for fish or chicken with veggies, soups, rice, English muffins, yogurt, etc.
5. Stretching everyday will help you improve overall. It's great for achieving your flexibility goals but it will also create muscle memory which helps with all aspects of cheerleading.
6. Not really. I have tumbling usually on Tuesday's and Wednesday's where I work on tumbling and jumps but other than that I just kinda do my own thing.
7. Yes! It will 100% help in every aspect of cheerleading. The more you train the better skills will be

Good luck!
