He knows what it’s like to put in long practice hours and the effects that it has on our bodies.

“In timing stunts like elevators and baskets, and even in extended stunts like stretches or cupies, the bases should make sure to keep their shoulders, hips, and ankles in one straight line. This is a great weight bearing stance and it will help you to prevent unnecessary lower back pain.” Dr. Stithem continues, “I wish every cheerleader would also practice yoga for optimum health.”
