GW Aerobic Team Practice Material
Aerobic shoes, practice attire, and hair band. We really would like all athletes to have the below list of materials for practice. We did add estimated price and a link to the Amazon site to make it all easier for you, but you are free to shop wherever you prefer as long is the material I suggest below. If you have a question about any of the items, let us know before you purchase them.
Aerobic Material (to be acquired by all Aerobic Team members):
- Aerobic Shoes ($89): http://www.nfinity.com/Nfinity-Youth/Nfinity-Evolution-Shoe
- Ankle weights ($9) - https://www.amazon.com/Yes4All-Ankle-Weights-Wrist-Adjustable/dp/B00VUXAWNG/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=exercise-and-fitness&ie=UTF8&qid=1523828530&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=ankle%2Bweights&th=1
- Wrist weights ($19) - https://www.amazon.com/GYMENIST-Weights-Running-Cardio-Exercises/dp/B01M5INYU4/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1545155749&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=GYMENIST+Pair+of+Wrist+Weights+With+Hole+for+Thumb%2C+Great+for+Running+%26+All+Kind+of+Cardio+Exercises+%281+LB+Pair%29
- Wrist guard / tiger paw) (Optional $27) - https://www.ten-o.com/Seconds-Golden-Hands-Wrist-Supports-FREE-SHIPPING,1099.html?b=s*wrist&s=d&p=8&c=43 . Many kids are experiencing wrist pain due to overuse during jumps to push up and presses. This is something we cant avoid the repetition during practice, so, I do suggest the Aerobic athletes use some type of support on their wrists when we do very heavy exercises and high repetition of drills/skills. Be aware that we do have a strengthen routine work for the wrist and forearm muscles we do every day during warm up.
- Elastic Band (Thera-band CLX Black $9) - https://www.amazon.com/TheraBand-Resistance-Equipment-Individual-Intermediate/dp/B073VVFFWK/ref=sr_1_4?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1523829031&sr=1-4&keywords=theraband+clx+resistance+bands

- Notebook and pen - Just get a pen to be always in their bag. and a notebook that should not be forgotten in the gym. This will help them to keep track of their work and performance during practice.
None of this material should be left in the gym overnight. Athletes should bring it to practice every day together with their shoes and any other needed material.
