    ..with squats, try putting a stability ball between the small of your back and the wall and lean into the ball while squatting. It removes the stress on your knees. When ready, hold 10-20lb weights.

    I'm looking for safe parking around (updated) mm 300, Station Camp, and can't find much on the map. Is there really nothing between Charit Creek Lodge and Peter's Mt?
