It depends on what kind of cheerleading. Is gymnastics harder than school/sideline cheerleading. Yes, no doubt. But gymnastics and All-Star cheerleading are really very similar. Both require many hours of practicing routines, tumbling, and conditioning. Cheerleading however incorporates complicated and dangerous stunts and tosses. I would say (having done both) that cheering and gymnastics are about the same.

*This does not include elite/olympic bound/olympic gymnasts. I would say that they have an edge over cheerleading

What is the same about cheerleading and gymnastics?

It's NOT!!!! I personally think that gymnastics is much harder than cheerleading. I did gymnastics since i was small. I made it on team when i was 7, but decied not to join, cause it seemed time consuming. But gymnastics, you have to be very strong, flexible, not scared to try new stuff, and balanced. In gymnastics you have vaut, beam, bars,and floor. In cheer you have cheers, dance, tumbling and stunting. Plus you don't wear shoes in gymnastics. They are the same because they both have tumbling, and they both learn routines, and that's about it.

Did cheerleading originate before gymnastics?
