A range of hikes, so you can choose according to your level of fitness. Flinders Peak is great for cardio and is excellent training for anyone building fitness for a trek. The East-West walk is a bit of fun and the Northern Ranges has some good ascents and has fewer people than the other walks. The Saddleback track is also excellent for those training for a trek. You can combine all these trails into one hike and by doing the Saddleback track and Flinders Peak twice, you do 20km. Parking can be challenging but it is a great park to visit.

Believe it or not there is a strong competitive side when it comes to what we know as warmup exercises. World records are constantly being broken by new competitors for things such as most pushups in a time span, or longest plank without fail. Many people dedicate their lives to being the best of the best and are constantly trying to be the best by beating theses records. Today we are going to look at some athletes who have taken their warmup exercises to the next level, and as a result have become the best in the world for these.
Warming up before working out and cooling down after is commonly overlooked and often completely ignored by many people who are beginners or intermediates when it comes to working out getting in shape. To be straight there is no shame in not doing warm ups for the sole reason that you didn’t know the importance of them, like many things, it is not often taught or even talked about in a workout routine for whatever reason, although after this, hopefully you understand the importance of warm ups and you start implementing them regularly into your workout routines.
