Alright so I've been fairly active on this board for a few months now. I have also been into Parkour for quite a while now. I keep seeing people's training logs, and keep imagining myself creating one, but It just doesnt seem like the right time do start a log.

Oh well. Im starting it now.

A little bit about myself physically.
Height - 6'1"
Weight - 140
Age- 17 in 5 days
{EDIT 11.18} Age 17

I haven't really tested weight maxes in over 2 years.
However, I can do about 30 consecutive pushups and about 6 consecutive pullups and MAYBE 4 dips. Pretty lame. I can run quite fast but my stamina is terrible. My best run was 1.2 miles in about 6 minutes... and I have no idea how I managed.

Todays Diet.
A bowl of grapenuts for breakfast
A bag of munchies for a snack
No lunch
Salmon, rice, and Salad for dinner
Some candy
A half cup of oatmeal.
Oh... and a little less than half a gallon of whole milk.

Todays activities
20 pushups x 3 = 60
6 + 3 + 3 pullups
30 squats x 3 = 90

Current Goals.
Horizontal Flag
20+ second freestanding handstand
Muscle up
20 consecutive pullups
50 consecutive pushups
Being able to consistently run a mile
{Edit- More}Handstand from Planche
Flips {/Edit}

Trying to take it easy on my legs and my left wrist (shinsplints and something unknown)

Anyways, its not pretty, but its a start.

Hah, its not a whole lot for me to remember. I dont workout that hardcore

Anyways.

Today's Diet
Big bowl of Cheerios
2 of Muse's Mini quiche's (Accidentally left my third one sitting on the counter when I left... I was so angry)
No lunch
Half a chicken Burrito bol from Chipotle
1 Pork Chop, about half a cup of green beans, and about a cup or a cup and a half of sliced fried potatoes.
1 medium slice of Caramel Apple Pie.
About 1/3 gallon of milk
Can of Tuna drizzled with EVOO

Today's Workout
7 pull ups
4 dips
Flag Practice

^ at lunch

6 + 5 + 4 pullups = 15 + 7 = 22
14 + 20+ 15 + 15 push ups = 64
Handstand practice plus about 4 HSPU negatives.

Think thats about it so far. I might go do some more pullups, pushups, crunches, or squats later. Maybe some practice jumping up my stairs.

What is a better substitute for cereal then? I don't have a whole lot of time in the mornings. Would Oatmeal be better?

oatmeal with hardboiled eggs woudl be perfect.

You can hardboil a whole bunch of eggs -- like a dozen -- at the beginning of the week and eat 3 with oatmeal and you're golden.  Some berries if you like too -- BLUEBERRIES FTW  8)

Alright, Sounds good. Berries are expensive though. But... they are Ohhh so tasty.

I might just start waking up like 10 minutes earlier and scrambling some eggs as well or something.

Oh Joy... today was rather... meh

Today's Diet
1/2 cup of oatmeal
4 eggs
1 poptart
-
Leftover Muse-quiche (Probably equivalent to about... 4 eggs worth? Hard to say, it was in a pan, I microwaved it and sprinkled some shredded cheese over it)
-
Very Large Peanut butter and Honey sandwich (Probably about 4-5 tablespoons of PB)
-
1 1/2 cup of some sort of beef (guesstimate)
Bag of Doritos
Blue Monster
Coffee
-
4 slices of Pizza from Pizzahut


Today was a long day... I might be forgetting a few things. Im not sure.


Today's Workout
My Pushup/pullup muscles are quite sore today, though, I did get some stuff in
Good handstand practice
About 15 6-8 second vertical flags (Attempted to lower) Each arm.

Took my siblings to the park, we played this game I made up for all of our benefit
When we were on our way there and back (its about 1/3 mile to the park) we had a race of sorts.
My sister (Age 6) got 9 jumps
My brother(age 9) got 7 jumps
I got 4 jumps.
(It went in rounds. My sister would Jump as far as she could 9 times, then my brother would go, then Me, and see where we were. Then we would continue)
We broad jumped about half the way to and from home.
All told, I probably got in about 100 broad jumps today.
(Does that even make sense?)

Thats about it, I think.

Oh, I suppose it might also help to mention that I am hoping to gain weight. I am quite thin (as mentioned in my first post..) looking to put on a few pounds (preferably muscle mass :D)

Anyways. Here goes the day.

I know I am going to forget a lot... Ive been a bit sick these past 2 days

Today's Diet
Large bowl of cereal (just didnt feel like making oatmeal)
Homemade Pizza (3 slices)
A few slices of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
*Crapload of nachos (Home-made: Chips, Ground beef, lettuce, black olives, black beans, shredded cheese, guacamole, sour cream, green chile)
Can of Tuna


*How much is a crapload? Its about a 9 inch plate stacked about 5 inches high with stuff)

Today's Workout
Found some bricks out behind my house... Precision time!

About 15 min precision practice (differing distances)
A few pullups
A few pushups

Worked on handstands a bit, Tried (and failed) to go from Planche to Handstand. Almost there



I am going to call today a rest day.

cool log man, keep it up. i'm glad to see your making the shift from cereal to to oatmeal and eggs. it's definately worth it, even if you have to get up a little earlier :)

Yesterday I got a little grounded for not blowing the leaves... retarded I know, but such is life eh?
Anyways, Here is my log for Yesterday. Today is my birthday, So im not sure if I will have time to post one up tonight, If not, then Ill post it tomorrow. Doubt it REALLY concerns anyone much though  ;D

Lets get to it.
11.17.08
Today's Diet
<In the morning I got up and ate a bowl of cereal because I really didnt feel like making anything. Then, about half an hour later, I said screw it and made some eggs.>
Bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats
4 Scrambled Eggs
2 pop tarts (I know they are terrible)
3 hardboiled eggs
1 1/2 slices of that nasty deli chicken,
1 1/2 slices of provolone cheese
A GoGurt. (Crappy Yogurt in a tube)
A few pieces of candy
1/3 Chicken chipotle burrito
1 can of red cream soda
3 pieces of French Toast, drenched in syrup.
2 cups of 2% milk (Not Ideal, not a big fan, but its all we had. Out of whole milk)
1/2 cup of oatmeal
3 Over Easy eggs, coated in shredded cheddar.


Again, I may have consumed a few other things, alas, My memory is not perfect.
Total of 10 eggs today. Jebus :D

Today's Workout
As always I practiced Flags at lunch, and a couple of handstands
Afterschool I did like 6 pullups, then attempted a onehanded pullup. It was like trying to pull down the tree. Epic Fail

Other than that, I dont think I did anything. Lame.

I did my first HSPU yesterday (Three of them, actually) on the ground. I plan on making some parallettes soon, then I will work full ROM.
More on that in a bit.
Ive managed to get myself grounded on friday (Nice, I know), so I am only able to use the computer at school.
Here is my log for yesterday (Ive forgotten sunday)

Most of you will cringe at my diet.

Yesterday's Diet
5 scrambled eggs coated in cheese
1/2 cup oatmeal.
4- 8oz Go-Fasts
2 pieces of GoFast Gum.
Can of Monster
Chipotle Steak burrito
1 cup coca~cola
4 cups of whole milk
maybe 1/3 pound chicken
1/5 (ish) pound of some sort of nasty frozen steak
Bout a Cup of Broccoli
2 cups of Salad (Drenched in Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar)
3 cups (popped) of popcorn.

Sounds about right.
Yesterday's Workout
I FELT good after doing stuff...
~15 minutes handstand practice
3+1+1+1 = 6 HSPU
6+5+4+3+1+1+1+2 = 23 pullups
15 x3 = 45 close pushups.


Not actually that great... but hey. I was proud of my HSPUs!

12-1-08 Log

Diet
1/2 cup oatmeal
3 scrambled eggs
1 cup whole milk
2 pop tarts
1 banana
half a bag of Carmel Corn Quakes
1/4 chipotle chicken burrito
2 8 oz GoFasts
Imitation qdoba burrito, made by my mother (Beans, Rice, ground beef, cheese)
1/2 gallon Whole Milk

Thats mostly it, methinks

Workout
I felt EXTREMELY weak for some reason. Not neccessarily sore, Just... weak. I could barely hold a flag, I could only manage a few pullups, Pushups felt rediculously harder than they should have. Its like all of a sudden I gained 20 pounds or something.
Anyways, it went something like this
Minimal Flag Practice at school
about 10 minutes total handstand practice.
about 10 pushups.
3 weighted pushups (About 30 pounds)
5 or so pullups
3 HSPU's
2 dips

Pathetic

Injury?
I think my knee may be injured. Yesterday it felt really weak as well, and a bit sore.Today (12-2 as of filling out the log for yesterday)I was walking up the stairs, and when I twisted my foot to turn, it felt like something tore in my knee, and now it hurts.

Dammit!

Its been a while since Ive posted, due to a combination of things...
Grounding (mainly) and the computerlab at school being down= no access to computer, till today.

The past week and a half or so that its been since I posted has been.. decent.
I havent trained a whole lot due to my knee (Going in for an MRI tomorrow, I believe it may be a torn Meniscus and I dont want to risk damaging my knee any more before I see what I need to do).
I've been doing conditioning though, and have started wrist strengthening (sortof like sledgehammer excersises but using an adjustable dumbell with a weight at one end... looks something like this  ----[|||]---().)
Diet has been alright, I seem to be gaining about a pound every 5 days or so, lean muscle.
I was sick a while ago (didnt eat for 4 days after hurling what had previously been in my stomach) so that was a bit of a setback towards my weightgain goal, but Im back up to where I was before now. I tried to GOMAD a while ago, but was unable to consume the entire gallon due to lack of time, mild lactose intolerance, and a whiny mother who insists that too much milk is bad for me. So its more of a HalfGOMAD for me, plus cheese :D. I love cheese.

I can do 2 pushups with my oldest brother on my back now, who weighs about 60 pounds. I hope to eventually be able to do it with all my siblings on my back (combined weight of about 130 pounds at 60, 40, and 30 pounds)
I can also do a few dips with my backpack on (about #10 or so, not too heavy).

I dont have access to a barbell, so deadlifts and the like arent options for me.
Basically, I remember from reading the How to construct a workout routine article that strength gain requires about 3 max weight reps, like 3 sets or something, correct? So is doing 3 sets of 3 pushups with my brother on my back helpful?
Oh yeah, Im going for strength now. (incase I didnt make that clear above)

I think that about covers anything worth noting (and a few things not)..

So... uhh, yeah. Thats all folks. I think. Maybe not. Oh well
Life is what you make of it.
