So, I'm going to try and keep at this if I can, since I'm getting into parkour and want to make it apart of my weekly training. I also hope to do a 365 where I do a little parkour everyday for the entire year.
Usually I workout 3 or 4 days a week, on on the third or fourth day, which is usually saturday, I go down to the WLC in shreveport to get coached by an olympic coach. I plan to implement a little bit of parkour on all of my workout days. On rest days, I do a good intense 30-40 minute practice on technique such as rolls and landings and so on. On the weekends, I'll do Parkour WODs to help condition me for parkour. I hope I can remember to keep updating this log. Anyway, here's the workout from yesterday and today:
I went to the WLC in shreveport, and got back into weightlifting after vacation. I broke a personal record in the snatch, but my clean and jerk has stayed the same since vacation. I then did 2x8 snatch grip deadlift, and one set of ab roll out. Wasn't much of a workout, but I had just come back from vacation and was getting into it again.
I started to research a little parkour today, and said, "Hey, you used to want to do parkour, right? Why not make it apart of your training?". I found the WODs on APK, and did one. Here's was it was:
As many rounds as possible for 15 minutes of:
10 sit ups
4 safety vaults
40 invisible jump rope.
I did six rounds, and had 43 seconds ticking away, so I stopped after six. It was pretty tough, but I've had experience working out before, so nothing I couldn't handle. After that, I went and practiced holding my handstand by propping my feet on the wall for 2x20 seconds.
Today, I started off the morning by watching some tutorial videos for the roll, and went outside and practiced for a few minutes. Later on in the afternoon I went back outside in the shade by a tree and continued to work on my rolls. I can't tell you the exact amount of repitions, because I was just doing them. After awhile, I started looking at the tree near me and thought about ways I could get through it besides just going around.
What I came up with, was running up to the V the tree sort of makes, and jumping and grabbing on both sides of the V with my hands, and kicking up my foot to the middle part. Using upper body strength I'd pull myself in the middle, and the jump down using a normal landing. I practiced this awhile and hope soon to be able to do it more 'fluidly' I guess you'd say, and soon end in a roll. I also did some other stuff with the tree that I still plan on working on later today in the evening.
Well, that's all for now. Will update sometime tomorrow.
