As October is coming to a close, the ladies are in the midst of perfecting three routines. One of the three—and possible two of the three—are going to be used as competition routines this spring! Most practices consist of a warm-up, stretching, and learning, changing, and cleaning routines. However, something we have recently added is our Thursday evening workout.
The 12-person team is splits up into two smaller groups, and we all meet at the Alverno Fitness Center for some strength training exercises. We use dumbbells, mats, bosou balls, and any other equipment to become stronger and increase our stamina. With the combination of strength training and step-by-step routine cleaning, there is no doubt in my mind that our talented group is going to be successful. There is only a couple more weeks until our first performance, and I’m confident that we’re going to be ready.
