What's your secret? Inner strength? Great energy? Keepin' it real no matter what's bringing you down? You've got style, a bounce to your step and you're there with an extra ounce of spirit when your team and school need you most. But what do you do when you can't get in the groove?


A cheerleader without cheer is like soda without the bubbles. When you're too pooped to pop, can you jump start your mojo? Try the following cheerleading tips!


Be strong, stay strong 

Your strength shines from within. No big muscles. No strong pungent odor to let people know you've been working out. You make it look effortless and easy. The fans in the stands don't have a clue when you're plagued with PMS, down for the count singing the "my boyfriend just dumped me" blues, or sweatin out a little extra perspiration from last night's garlic knots. So, how do you keep your personal issues a secret and show the world your best game face? Keep reading for some easy-to-do cheerleading tips:


  1. Smile. Even if you don't feel like it. Smiling sends a happy message to your brain, and your brain responds by kicking up your mood a notch. It also sends a happy message to people who see your smiling face and smile right back. It's like paying it forward.
  2. Don't let your audience see you sweat. A combo antiperspirant/deodorant keeps you drier, and keeps you smelling fresh when you're up close and personal. You'll look calm and cool even when you feel hot and tired.
  3. Your period is your business. No one needs to know when it's "that time of the month" or that you've tucked a spare tampon in your gear bag/shoe/bra/"name-your-fave-hiding-place-here". Take along something small and discreet, like Tampax Pearl Compak. With the right tampon inserted properly, you can forget about Aunt Flo and concentrate on having fun!

  4. A cover-up is a no-no in politics. In a teen's life, it's a must! Zap those zits and cover up blemishes, then forget about 'em. Go out there and rock the world with a clear complexion.
  5. Gossip is good for soaps and fan mags, but in real life it's just a menace. Keep the drama out of your life. Share your own cheerleading tips, and keep your team working together.
  6. If you're hurt or sore, let your coach know. Don't try to push through the pain or keep injuries a secret. The expression no pain, no gain doesn't apply when you're injured.


So if cheering is the last thing on your mind, but the show must go on, just power through it with the help of these cheerleading tips and some handy tools. Then pump it up and bring it on!

@TheaterGreek101: i do cheer, and it is exhausting. i like the "smiling sends a happy message to the brain" but smiling for 2 hours straight hurts!
