Recommended Stretches

Back: No back flexibility required.

Legs: No leg flexibility required.

Arms: No arm flexibility required.

How to Pull the Position:

Step 1: Start your stunt facing the side.

Step 2: Bend the left leg and point your toe.

Step 3: Place the left foot on the left side of your right knee. Make sure your entire foot (from heel to toe) is touching your knee. Keep your toe pointed.

Step 4: Twist your upper body to the left to face the front.

Step 5: Place the right hand on top of your left knee, and the left hand on your hip.

Most Common Mistakes:

Mistake #1: Flyers tend to flex their foot when pulling the Liberty position.

Mistake #2: Flyers let their left knee turn out. The knee should always be pointing directly in front of them.

Mistake #3: Flyers place their foot against the left side of their shin instead of against the left side of their knee.

Mistake #4: Flyers let their heel drift away from the knee. The entire foot (from heel to toe) should never move away from the knee.

Pretty Girl Body Position Recap

The Pretty Girl position is so much like the liberty, except that the flyer places one hand on the knee and the other on the head or the hip, in a typical “pretty girl” fashion.

How to Pull the Position:

Start your stunt facing the side. Bend the left leg and point your toe. Place the left foot on the left side of your right knee. Make sure your entire foot (from heel to toe) is touching your knee. Keep your toe pointed. Twist your upper body to the left to face the front. Place the right hand on top of your left knee, and the left hand on your hip.

Improving The Pretty Girl Body Position

No back, leg or arms’ flexibility is required. Just as in the Liberty, body balance and weight distribution are the Pretty Girl Body Position’s two biggest challenges, as extra movements will lead to shifts in weight and consequently, a collapse in the pretty girl cheerleading stunt.

Most Common Mistakes:

Flyers tend to flex their foot. Flyers let their left knee turn out. The knee should always be pointing directly in front of them. Flyers place their foot on the left side of their chin instead of against the left side of their knee. Flyers let their heel drift away from the knee.
