"Main take aways from hb's entry:

1) Putting your thoughts onto paper: Hb has actively documented his progress and he knows that he is on the right track. Just like how you would track your progress in the gym, you should pen down your progress in cheerleading as well. If you can hit a toss to hands in 3 trainings, good for you! But if you are still doing only a toss to hands after 30 trainings, something is wrong. By this time you should already be hitting toss extensions. We have to understand that the era of "old school cheerleading" is long over. You no longer have to do 7587567475486 elevator pops, 5865856467467 toe touches or 579587586586586 arm motions before you can do a toss hands. That does not make sense!

I like to define "old school cheerleading" as the era before 2008 (Singapore's context). Come this era of 2011, progress should be much faster. We are in a new era! It took me 4 years before I could do a decent cupie for example. With the amount of expertise and help available in the local scene nowadays, new cheerleaders should be aiming to reach their seniors' level in half the time their seniors took! If this is not happening, something is very very wrong!

And, please do not for once think that partner stunts is not important. If you are really a cheerleader, partner stunts is one component you MUST be able to do. (regardless of whether you are a base or flyer). We are in a new era. Extensions, liberties and cupies are honestly - basic stunts.

2) HB's 7 points to his success: Again, give and you shall receive. It is always through giving that you will discover something else extra in the process. There is no short cut to success, but neither should you take forever to reach the top. HB has shared what worked for him It may or may not work for you, but if you do not see any light in your own development now, you really should consider trying his methods.
