Wow inspiring Im 6'2 and have 187 lbs Im looking to go for 172 lbs. I've started 365 parkour challange 10days ago and have strained my shoulder on day 1 so I might start 365 circuit again. My goals are philosophically same but physically different since Im looking more for conditioning and parkour basics.

I wish you good luck. Stay motivated.

And if u dont mind explain how you have lost 40lbs in 2 months. Diet? Workout?

                                 Day 2
Did everything that was on the list yesterday except for roll practice.... :( soooooo today is the day ill do that.

my schedule for the day is

-Work on rolls.
-Balance work
-Landings (quiet)
-precision.
-sprints uphill and down.
-Run 2 miles.
-- and maybe work on my kongs depends on time.
 :-Sarcasm

        Also replying to Matija Ambrož im going for the conditioning part too but i want to up my skills to cause i enjoy the art of it also and philosophy of parkour. but yea parkour is pretty much 80% conditioning and 20% fun :P. The whole losing 54 lbs in 2 months it was training everyday and eating in lower portions, no special diet. except i cut out coke and any carbonation overall that's the only special thing i did and i ran 2+ miles everyday adding onto the training so it was rough but it was definitely worth it. But yes are goals are the same i like parkour for the philological reasons and its discipline. But i also like freerunning for the art of it i know the difference and i do like them both but believe me i like parkour more :P

now for the training today i am going to a really good spot in William and Mary, its always exciting to go!
today i am going to work on really cutting down on eating like portion wise i have been doing good on the not eating past 8 PM part but....i still need to work on my portion and what i eat...

Great workout!
For handstands and arm strenght maybe you should do a harder version of pushups (diamon, declined there are 100 of it) a variation that you feel commfortable doing about 6-8 times and do set with 10 reps :) so you'll focus more on strenght and endurance comes with strenght :) just a tip :)
