jump from your toes and thighs, the more you go down the easier it is, you get more power that way, and congradulations on the toe touch! ^_^ hope this helps ,

I'm not a cheerleader. but i was for a long time. Before you go to jump bend and the knees and push off from the ground! This will send you farther up in the air and allow you to get a little more height off the ground. Hope i helped!

Build up strength in your calves, and do lots and lots of jumping.

Here's a few exercises that'll help you out:

You'll need a set of stairs or something similar. Stand on the very each of the stair with only the balls of your feet touching it. Stand with your heels hanging in the air. Stand up on your tip-toes and hold it for about thirty seconds. Go down, rest a little, and repeat. Do about 5 sets of 5 every day.

Run a few laps up and down some stairs every day.

Take a very sturdy wooden box approximately one or two feet in heighth. Stand in front of the box, and begin to step one foot up, then the next, one foot down, other foot down, one foot up, other foot up, etc. Do this at a very fast pace for about 30 seconds. Your calves will be VERY tired after this, but do about three sets of thirty seconds a day.

Also, just run. Running is great to tone not only your legs, but your entire body.

If you need me to explain this a bit better, just ask me for clarification. It's hard to explain without pictures!
