Learn to warm up, then roll in all directions.

Any tips for warming up? I run everyday and do situps, but that is it so far.

Rolling and landing are crucial elements in this sport and if you can't do these your not gonna make it very far.
First learn to land then to roll. Once you learn these you can get in to vaulting there are many different kind of vaults and these too you can find all over youtube.
And by the way welcome to the forums :)

Also, you can train rolls while warming up, along with quadrupedal movements. I like to say that you never mastered the roll until you have done 1000 perfect ones (on all surfaces ;)).

I don't think any one can "Master" rolls especially on concrete or gravel, well I haven't even been able to roll on cement yet mostly I have just been conditioning but as I said before if you can't roll your not gonna make it very far in this sport.

I'm sure after years of the right practice, a roll on concrete will be no different then a roll on any other surface. Anything can be mastered, it just takes years of dedication and devoted practice.

Yes this is true but a lot of people don't have the disciplne for this sport. obviously you can go out there and you can roll all day and master it in a year or so. But my question is"Will you?"

That was my whole point to my post. Obviously 1000 rolls on any surface doesn't mean you did or didn't master it, but if it gets you out there to attempt to master it then that's all that counts 8)
