So I'm a competitive cheerleader and there have been plenty of times that people will come at me saying its not athletic. What do you guys think??
Well if it waasnt you anylne would be able to do it abd from what ive seen you have to be fit and train hard to do some of the tricks for it. So i say its athletic.
Jest compete because you know you can be successive, who cares if people don't think cheerleading isn't athletic. I do think cheerleading is athletic though.
I used to compete in and out out high school! Don't listen to what ppl say... They have a right to their opinion and you have the right to ignore them! You train for competeing just like any other sport.... Forget tha haters
You do flips, you toss eachother in the air and catch, you do human pyramids - yeah, I would say that makes you an athlete
I'm a cheerleader too, and yes it actually is very hard work. So why wont it be? Not a sport tho.. But it takes gutts' to do the kinda things a cheerleader do and work for.
- Cheer for life!
Yeah, cheerleaders are athletes. It's a sport. However, even though golf is a sport, I don't think golfers are athletes
It is not athletic sport u don't break a sweat really its just cheering you just need to be a little be athletic sports like soccer football hockey you need to be athletic people who do dance need to be ten times more athletic then cheerleadera I do mma I have to be athletic or I get my ass wooped but from my knowledge I don't know if u workout at home so the sport I would say you don't need to be athletic for
Gymnastics is very athletic!!!! Tho if you took gymnastics out of it then cheerleading would be more of a loud amateur type motivational dance team and wouldn't be very athletic...so yea its athletic because it includes gymnastics
Def athletes! I miss my high school days cheer and dance were my main priorities besides grades of course lol! Keep up the hard work, I never went to nationals with cheer but dance nationals were awesome!
I w as a cheeleader. And yes it is. We workout just like the football players. Shit we did the same things they did.
People who keep saying u are athletic don't know what they are talking about very few are athletic on the teams and the ones that are do gymnastics cheerleaders is not a sport oh you can kick over your head women are naturally flexible and for you to do a handstand thats.nothing throwing someone up doesn't require strength and the pyramids are not even close to hard you have alot of ppl doing it the most athletic thing yiu do is a roundoff and only the really goods one do and thats not hard either parkour is 1million times harder than cheerleading
It takes as lot to be able to do all of those jumps and flips. Most people can't do that at all, I'd break my neck! Keep your head high and fcuk what people say. Do you girl!
Hell yeah it's athletic!
And I know girls who've tried and failed because it was too hard so...
