    [​IMG] what do you all think of this workout? Will this help me get in shape by April for cheer tryouts if I do it everyday?

    There are a lot of workouts like this that you'll find online, Pinterest, etc. that, with consistency and dedication, will HELP you get in shape. I don't see anything wrong with the one you posted. Just remember to stretch well before and after, and to make healthy food choices and stay hydrated!

    While any conditioning routines when correctly executed can help your physical potential, I would highly encourage enrolling in a tumbling/cheer class at a local allstar gym this month (in preparation for the tryouts you listed in a previous thread). Lists like this are very hard to stick to past a few weeks, let alone months for most people honestly... Up to you and your work ethic/determination ultimately though as to the results you will get.

    Conditioning such as the pinterest list above can help you learn skills quicker/easier since a fit body will be more likely to be able to preform skills, and can be a great additional thing to do at home in order to further your potential. Being physically fit is only one part of the equation however. Technique of the skills you are performing, as well as mental readiness will greatly factor into the overall picture.

    Technique is the most important part to a skill , whether it be jumps, stunting, tumbling, etc. It is what separates the bad from the average to the great! No matter how fit a person is, if they use bad technique, it is very difficult to build onto skills further & can also result in injury over time. Technique is best learned by an instructor with proper credentials at an allstar gym in my opinion, as they can correct bad form in person before it starts to become a habit. An instructor can also spot you and help ensure that you are mentally ready to perform a skill by yourself (particularly in tumbling and stunting).
    I am not sure what the requirements are for tryouts at your school (it would be a good idea to ask the current coach, so that you have several months to prepare), but having judged for HS tryouts previously, I would HIGHLY reccommend signing up for a class at a local allstar gym in preparation. If you are not sure of one in your area, there is a gym directory on fierceboard. The technique learned in classes typically will stand out.
