90-90 Hip Shift with Hemi Bridge and Balloon modified from Postural Rest...

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.
