Can You Train Like A Wildlife Ranger?
Wildlife rangers spend up to 18 hours a day in the bush, monitoring wildlife, tracking poachers and supporting communities. This gruelling work is undertaken across vast landscapes, requiring rangers to be in peak physical shape.
To prepare for the Wildlife Ranger Challenge 21km race, our ranger teams will be participating in two physical challenges and seeing how many push-ups and sit-ups they can complete as a team in two minutes.
Push-ups and sit-ups will have to be completed with perfect form in order to count towards their total. Andrew Campbell, Chief Executive Officer of the Game Rangers’ Association of Africa, has demonstrated what perfect form should look like in the following videos.
