How to prepare your self for any adventure?
Fitness – Most important
  1. Start walks 3 to 4 times per week; go for 45 minutes to 60 minutes brisk walk. If you can go for walks with your backpack or a smaller one nothing like it.
  2. Do stretching exercise (stiff body can break down easily).
  3. Built strength training (weights or GYM or at least do Surya Namaskar; Pushups; Squats and Stomach Crunches). 20 minutes 3 times per week is OK.
  4. Eat good food (have 3 to 4 servings of vegetable or fruit salads per day).
  5. Pranayam – Breathing exercise for developing stronger lungs.
  6. If you have purchased a new shoe for trek, start wearing it at least 10 to 15 days in advance to get used to the new shoe.
Looking forward to meet you for yet another exciting Nature Knights adventure.
