hyper extended elbow
My daughter is 12years old and does competition cheerleading. She has been trying to do a back handspring and other flips and we went to a gym the other day and the instructor told her that she had a hyper extended elbow and that is why she was always bending her arm. He told us that she needed to exercises to strengthen the arm and elbow so that she would be able to stop bending her elbow when doing a back handspring. Can you give us any suggestions on exercises that she can do to strengthen the muscles in that arm?
