It`s like a little bit of cheerleading plus gymnastics on drugs. Seriously, do you know how HARD that stuff is? I struggle to be able to do even a split!

Imagine supporting the weight of 3 grown men on your stomach while in crabwalk position...

I wonder how these people are trained and how badly they would mess up at first

And no, that was some advanced GYMNASTICS. Cheerleaders may incorporate gymnastics into their routines, but gymnasts don`t cheer...

Oh, never mind... I know why tumbling isn`t there. It got moved over to trampolining shortly after I quit. Enjoy the video anyway. I`ve competed against a couple of the guys on there!

Don`t know why this video doesn`t include tumbling also as it is another discipline of sports acro. Most people would probably not find it impressive but it`s great for showing off with! Tumbling is an individual event where you just go down a track doing... well... here`s a video... enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbsWHsiFQ...

I used to do sports acrobatics, I`m a former British champion in a men`s 4 in fact. Nice to see it finally getting some recognition for how good it is! It`s been trying to become an Olympic sport for a long time but still not got there. I think it would be massively popular if it ever did make it.

the music is from cirque de soleil. this and cirque de soleil pretty much blow my mind. i`ve actually somehow gotten tickets to see cirque de soleil three (maybe four) times live (i think all four or three were free tickets from someone, too expensive otherwise) but it was amazing everytime. look it up on youtube its fantastic. the music is super cool too.

To everyone who mentioned Cirque, and they one guy going on about 80`s piano music:

The song they used was from Mystere, a Cirque show in Las Vegas. The music was composed in the 80`s. Loved it and the other 6 I`ve seen.

And no, I`m not rich. This has been over the course of 12 years and the ones in Las Vegas were paid for by my parents. $130 for O, if I`m not mistaken.

Mann. That`s crazy. I`ve seen Cirque du Soleil, too. Seeing a different show in August as well.. So it`s not super amazing to me. Still pretty awesome, though.

When I saw the guy with the bridge and the other 3 guys on top of him, it amazed me how he didnt even cringe when the guy stepped on him... It`s like, "man, that`s your stomach/ribs! That`s gotta hurt man!"

And by the way, who cares if the women were more flexible - the guys were way more powerful and athletic, which was obvious in the male-female pairing. The whole video was incredible.

That sh*t is amazing. Now THAT is athleticism. As far as comparing it to Cirque du Soleil, all I can say is that these people didn`t use any safety apparatus and they pushed the envelope a lot more. That tower of 4 guys was flat out amazing. I mean, the bottom guy was holding them in the air on his STOMACH. Wow.

Now if the women did those same tricks naked, then we`d something to talk about. (especially the bit where the girl spread her legs and the other girl did a handstand over it

First thing i`ve seen on here in ages that actually made me think `wow`. some of that was amazing. The women were definately better. They`re more flexible and.. well...i`d just rather watch women in leotards than men.

And to think that I was scared stunting in cheerleading. I`m very, very glad that everything in this video is illegal for cheerleaders, otherwise I probably would by typing this from a full body cast right now. These people are amazing, I can`t even imagine doing half of the stuff they do, especially on those mats.

Yeah, that stuff is difficult as hell, I used to do some of those poses on a floor mat with a friend during break when I was younger. Neither of us were really strong enough though, and we always fell. XD But it`s really fun to do, it`s exhilarating.

And, to Guest5386, Cirque de Soleil is currently in my city, and it makes me really angry that the tickets are 60-something dollars a piece. I don`t even have the money for a quarter of that, but it`s one of my dreams to see them live. @_@

Of course i liked it... But i saw the Cirque du Soleil do many time that its doesnt impress me that much anymore. I considers those people artists and i mean they are excellent...

... But as i said, i saw Le Cirque du Soleil too often to be like "wooow... awwww"

Sowwy ^^;

I laughed when the 3 guys used one guy as a jumprope.
I noticed that in general the men weren`t as impressive. They just can`t stretch as much.
