More stretching for kick boxing and cheer.

This is a special post requested by: vickislettersfromtheheart. I hope this helps Viki!

Ok. Rewind the video to 4:39 and watch from there because he talks a lot. 🙂 MAKE SURE you do your normal stretching and warm ups, so you don’t hurt yourselves! Hold each position he gives you for 20 to 25 seconds. These stretches will help your kicks get higher, and also if your a cheerleader and need you bow and arrow, these stretches will stretch out your hips and hamstrings to be able to do that skill. In order to get your kicks much higher, it helps to have your full middle split. ( or at least almost all the way down ). Also it helps to have a lots of power and CONTROL. Sometimes I go and watch my brother at his karate class, and his teacher always mentions control each time. Find a wall or chair in your home, and do the practice kicks that he did at 9:57. It takes time to get all this, but you can do it! Don’t get frustrated if you can’t get your middle split in 2 days. It took me about 2 weeks worth of stretching to achieve my splits. Just stretch and practice, practice, practice everyday.
