Even though we cannot meet nor are we sure that we will be able to compete, the Shockwaves are working hard at home to keep in tip-top shape. Whenever we start to practice again we would love to have you join us. Want to get started training like a Shockie now? Here are a few workouts that our athletes are doing this week. *Remember to start each work out with a 1 mile (10 minute) running warm-up and then dynamic stretches. After the dynamic stretches, run another .5 miles (5 minutes) to make sure you are ready to complete the work out to the best of your ability. At the conclusion of each workout, run/jog/walk at least .5 miles (5 minutes) for cool down and be sure to static stretch fully paying attention to any areas that feel tight.
