Today I was at the cheer gym I go to working on front aerials on the tumble track onto the big pillow mat. This is the first time I’ve ever worked on front aerials. so I was doing them and at first wasn’t landing them then towards the end I started doing them and I kinda landed on my heal and then I would fall and my knee kept hyperextending and it was horrible pain and I was really close to getting that skill! I tried to ask my instructor why I kept landing that way and he just said I had to lift my hips up more and arch and couldn’t explain why my knee was hyperextending! The inside of my knee is hurting and I put KT tape on it and doing R.I.C.E. to heal faster. I’ve already been told I lock back into hypertension in my knees at dance... My question is why is my knee hyperextending badly when I land my front Aerial and how can I stop it from happening in the future? Any tips or drills are greatly appreciated!
