Do you like puppies?  Do you like parkour?  Do you like them combined?  If you answered yes to any of these check out the video!

Pics & Vids / Re: Parkour Competition
« on: November 03, 2010, 05:05:19 PM »
Although I see that Getz is apparently not coming back i still wanted to say this.  Nobody forced me to do anything (not really sure how that would even be possible?)  Parkour used to be my entire life until I was forced to stop due to some unfortunate circumstances.  Competing is also something that I have always really enjoyed because I know that the best I will ever perform is when I am going up against someone else.  It doesn't have anything to do with me being better than the other person, I simply love to compete.  When David Rodriguez was going up against me in the second to last round I told him exactly what to do in order to beat me, and he did.  You know what the last thing going on in my mind when i was helping my "competition?"  Money.  $200 is cool and helped pay the bills but it was maybe 5% of my entire motivation to compete.  I just want to say that not a single bad thing was said to or about another competitor in the competition.

Finally, I have never had more fun doing parkour or felt closer to my fellow traceurs than during this competition and that alone would make me more than happy to compete in the future.

PS: This is probably my first post in 2 years.

Ryan: marvelous video, scenery and parkour, really impressive!

A couple years back. the university was doing a force-plate study on parkour jump landings.  Was that ever released, and is there a link to it?

Haha that was Ryan's study.  I don't believe he finished it.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Parkour actually Saving your life
« on: September 15, 2009, 09:12:26 PM »
Knowing how to roll has saved my ass way more then any specific parkour training.  I took a nasty spill on my bike the other day and I'm convinced the only reason I got away unharmed is because I rolled

A few of the stuntmen who worked on Prince of Persia with david belle are working on this movie. That would be my best bet.

I can't tell from your post whether you're guessing or it actually is from the prince of persia group.

As my goals are different now (strength prioritized over hypertrophy) I see no need to eat so damn much.

Well, eating a bunch helps a ton with recovery.  Eating to maintain makes it a bit harder to optimize recovery, in my experience, fwiw.

Since I've been back in the gym again, I've been eating more, and a bit healthier.  Need more veggies, though.  I just don't see myself wanting to eat two super burritos or six huge meals a day or anything.  I don't really want to gain weight, but I don't need to lose it either.

On topic:  I like to eat something light before workouts.  Lately, homemade smoothies (OJ, banana, strawberries, blue- or rasp- berries, yogurt and sometimes milk and protein powder).  This is pure personal preference and I have no idea if that's a good or bad thing to do.

Workouts tend to be better if you don't.

If you have blood flowing to your digestive system (parasympathetic), then your sympathetic nervous system isn't going to work as well during training.

Thanks Steve.  I find I get lightheaded if it's been too long since I've eaten, especially.  So I'll try to time a meal or smoothie a few hours before a workout.  What's the optimal time?  2-3, 3-4 hours?

Just be glad you don't have to eat that much just to maintain  :(.  On another note my friend won the Paris Robeaux this year!

the pro race? Your friend is a crack head.

or are you talking about big bird?

Good for you having high expectations.  I think we might have a misunderstanding.  I don't have any reservations I was just saying don't expect too much.  One thing that may help you is to ask the traceur as much as you can about the move before they do it.  Also you might try asking them what part of the move looks most photogenic.

Kind of surprised more people don't have anything to say about it

i fill that parkour is what humanity was meant to do and that we have over complicated our lives  if we all lived in the wild  there would be no stress at work no worrying about but crap like shoes and pursis (ladies)  only tree things and all would be supplied   food water wemon (i no there an assential cant live with out them but shole as heck cant live with them lol)  my point is humanity screwed its self and the earth when left the wild

ps HUMANITY IS NOT ON THE TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN THATS  MYTH I BET THAT NO MAN CAN KILL A LION WITH HIS BARE HANDS  NINE NONA ZILCH


A little bit surprised nobody has mentioned this.  YOU'RE DUMB.  You're seriously trying to say that there wouldn't be any stress if everyone lived in the wild?  There's so many things wrong with that post I can't even begin to comment on it.  You don't think it would be stressful when you got the flu and knew you had a high percentage chance of death.  Or what about the stress of having absolutely no idea when your next meal was going to be.  Or where the next water source you would find is.

Thanks Sat.

Just wanted to clarify, are you simply condoning the request for a photo call on your forum or suggesting I'll have trouble finding someone to shoot? Bit hard to tell tone of voice on the net  :)

Parkour is a pretty sport in the way that it is shot.  Every move has a very small margin in which it looks photogenic, much less then most other action sports.  Each move is fundamentally different, and sort of takes either A) an experienced parkour photographer or B) a competent photographer that does parkour.  I'm sorry if this comes off as mean, I'm in no way knocking your skills or competency more just warning you not to have high expectations.
