This is an easy and AWESOME conditioner. You say you want to work on your abs, your obliques, and your glutes?
I say I want you to work on your diaphragm so that you can yell louder and longer at a lower pitch. If you ever want to build stunts, you're going to need a strong core, whether you're a base or a flier.
THIS simple exercise works ALL of that! Weird and new as it looks, watch this video and give it a try.
As if abs and glutes weren't enough- it improves your posture too, which should help your poise and confidence (two of the last 5 Pyramid blocks).
Calves on the wall, use a stool or exercise ball if it helps, smaller ball between your knees, thighs parallel to the wall, then try blowing up a balloon.
Try it, I DARE you. I know these seem crazy, but this Postural Restoration/Balloon exercise and the Cross-Crawl that I shared with you at the beginning of the summer are OUTSTANDING cheer conditioners.
