In Cheerleading the Toe Touch Jump is the holy grail and represents the height of jumping technology; a jump that if executed correctly, can be the difference between a winning routine and coming last!
Again, like any jump, practice is key but specifically with the "Toe Touch Jump" as you need to develop the skills required over a period of time, strengthening your body and improving your jumping technique as you go.
Not every Cheerleader can execute the perfect Toe Touch, it takes practice, lots of practice and even then some Cheerleaders never manage a decent toe touch. As stated earlier, some Cheerleaders will perfect stunning Toe Touches in weeks, whilst other will struggle month after month and still fail to perform a really good one.
One things for sure; No Cheerleader will perfect a descent Toe Touch without dedication and lots of practice.
But remember this: Given the right amount of effort everybody can be taught a Toe Touch that's adequate and will look really great in performance. It's down to dedication and effort, the more you put in, the more you get out and it all starts with the basics, such as repetitive strengthening exercises, practicing counts, and working on timing and delivery.
Basically,if you want that jaw dropping Toe Touch;
THEN YOU WILL NEED TO WORK FOR IT!
