When I was in high college, I was a competitive cheerleader, then when all the people think of gymnastics, they do not think it is a activityâ€¦ However, I do think it is a activity, however cheerleading involves dance, gymnastics, and stunting.
It requires coordination, flexibility, agility, strength, and cardiovascular endurance.
My gymnastics team used to travel to compete. We made it to the national competition and both of us were able to fly from the northeastern region of the country to the southeastern region of the country for this competition, keep in mind, multiple of the women on our team have not experienced the temperature of the south. My cheer coach reminded us that there would be a/c when both of us competed, however to be careful when both of us were walking around outside in the heat. Her advice did not make sense when she decided to have us practice outside in the heat before competition. Her reasoning is that both of us should be able to stick our routine someplace- inside in the a/c, outside in the sun, on sod, or on floors meant for tumbling. After an harshly hot practice in the southern heat, both of us all went back to our air conditioned rooms so everyone was fine that night. We were tired from the heat, however both of us were ready to compete the next day. We got ready for the competition in our air conditioned hotel rooms. We had to put makeup on our faces and do our hair, so both of us were grateful for the cool a/c. When both of us got to the location for the competition, both of us noticed big fans everywhere, the a/c broke, however they decided to continue with the competition. The broken A/C caused over a single hundred cheerleaders to pass out.
