Title: ReTraining.
Post by: CyanideSoda on October 01, 2008, 09:56:35 PM
I'm back. I have increased muscle mass, and lost alot of excess weight. Unfortunately i have also lost all my cardio. I get out of breath after about 2 minutes of intense PK, I can't even run around my house 3 times without collapsing grasping for air.

Now i'm just shy of 6 foot, And weigh 135. I don't smoke cigs, do drink occasionally, and eat mildly healthy. I do not take any vitamins, do not take any medication.

Work out regimen
Pull Up-- umm   :-\ working on that. I can do 2 or 3 front hand.
Push Ups-- I can easily do push ups, usually in sets of 20 or so.
Sit Ups-- Also easily done, i usually do 30-50 at a time.
Squats-- No problem, i don't even count, just do them till i can't stand.

Parkour Regimen
I am still easing my way back into training.

Rolls- Yummy, but besides that i do usually 10-20 min of roll training a night.
Vaults- The bane of my existence, I have yet to start working on my vaulting skills again.
Wall Runs-  I am fairly proficient with wall runs still working on topping out.
Flow- I feel choppy, i have difficulty stringing movements together.
Efficiency-   I truly try my hardest to be as efficient as possible. I do not do flashy stuff.
Footwork- Probably my best attribute.

I will be recording my work out, some of my diet, etc... Any help would be much appreciated.

Underhanded pullups (palms facing you) are called Chin Ups I believe.

Might I recommend lifting some weights to get back into the swing of training? I don't know if you have weights or a gym to go to but some mid-range lifting is great for starting out. Do lifts with weights you can handle for 10-12 reps and workout at a good pace so it hits your cardio a little too.
