Helpful hints for exercising this summer

Summer is here !! If you haven’t noticed the last week or so has been super hot – we wanted to share a few handy hints, debunk some myths and touch on some strategies you can use to perform better in summer when you exercise

Check out Mark talking specifically about Kurrawa to Duranbah 50 & 30k endurance races.

Considering they are just around the corner it is a good time to discuss heat acclimation, although any of these strategies can be applied to your own training and fitness especially when the thermometer goes upwards
