I've been doing cheer for almost 9 years now and it's my passion. I had hit a hard plateau for a few years, and in the last 4 months of strength-training, I have shattered that plateau. I will be talking about cheerleading often here and posting videos, so get used to it! I've reserved the 3rd post for videos, so it'll have constant updates on new skills I've hit. I'm looking forward to this journey with all of you.
