Some newer cheerleaders might be a little confused about the difference between Herkie versus Hurdler jumps. Before you do either of these moves, you should already have the basic jump entry mastered, which you can learn about here.
How to Perform a Herkie Cheerleading Jump
From Step 4 (see the jump entry link) have your arms move into a Motion Punch position (one arm straight up and the other arm bent on your hip). The arm that is bent needs to be on the same side as the leg that is straight. For your legs, one leg will go into a toe touch position (straight with your knee towards the sky) and the other leg will be bent with your knee pointing to the ground. (See larger photo on the left for leg position guidance.)
