yes...there are two areas that immediately come to mind.

First, it can lead to more severe back problems later in life.

Second, too much flexibility can hinder some of the skills that require extreme strength used for skills that require stability.

What are the differences between acrobatic and rhythmic gymnastics?

There two very different sports. But heres a breif overview of both -ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS: this one involves four appartus, floor, vault, bars and beam. If you do artistic gym you have to do all four. Artist invovles such things as leaps, walkovers, tumble lines (backflips-backsaults, frontsaults etc.) Strenght is a must have(but don't worrie that's something you gain with lessons), and flexibilitie helps although depending how far you would want to go its not a need. (Also depending on different peoples coaching views.) Artistic is a little similar to both acrobatics, and dancing. Its more about tricks, strength, flips, and everything in between.RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS: is a very pretty sport. Its a bit of a mix between calasenthinics, and dance. It involves doing tricks, (ie. throwing and catching, leaping walkovering) with a ribbon, ball, clubs, skipping rope, and hool hoop. Flexibilitie is a must have! For it is a main thing in rhythmic gym.

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.
