Tips to clear three new obstacles

TOUGH: (Above) In The Network, participants have to climb over a lorry with a rope mesh. (Top) In the Leap of Faith, participants have to take a big leap to reach for a pole that is some distance away. PHOTOS: SPH MAGAZINES

BOTTOM LINE

A multi-staged obstacle, where participants must balance on a slackline (similar to a tightrope) while gripping onto handholds. They would then have to jump across a gap between the slackline and the final platform.

Tip: Do exercises such as planks for core stability. Train your upper body with chin-ups.

TIPPING POINT

Participants have to manoeuvre their way on a see-saw, which will challenge their balance.

Tip: Having a strong core is the key, so work on plenty of planks.

WHEEL AND DEAL

This challenge of agility requires participants to climb through tyres that are hung at different heights.

Tip: Work on your coordination to be able to pass through each tyre in a smooth motion. Also, take time to visualise how you are going to get through each hoop.
