Best Answer

The proper spelling would be Herkie, after the 'founding father of Cheerleading' Lawrence "Herkie" Herkimer, the man who created the jump. He had many firsts in the world of cheerleading.

How do you do a hurkey and pike for cheerleading?

okay so first off you must streatch for them *hurkey streatching* touch your toes on separate feet and circle your ankles. Do regular streatches like you do in gym. *Pike streatching* also do regular gym streaches but there is a GREAT streatch to do! it is called a pike sit down on the ground put both feet out together and point your toes then reach down and grab your arch in your feet and hold it there. *Tips* if you can't touch your toes then reach your hands up in the sky and inhale then reach for your toes as you exhale. OKAY SO NOW WE MOVE ON TO DOING THE JUMPS. *hurkey* while doing a right/left hurkey. your leg that you decide to use right/left is extended. then the other leg is bent backwords while in the air. If you have trouble getting height in your jump then do wolf jumps which are mini hurkeys or practice your hurkey on a trampoline if possible! *pike* when doing a pike, you are doing a pike streatch all over again exept you are keeping your hands in fists instead of on your feet. to get higher practice doing them non stop in the air without any perfection. just think about your height while you do this. Video taping yourself is also a helpful tip because then you know what it is you have to work on.! =) HELP- if you need more help I would visit if you have acess to that. Good Luck on your Jumps and I hope this helped! Don't worry about it if you can't get it right away! I am a cheerleader and it took me awile to learn these jumps too. so have fun!!!!!!! enjoy!
