You probably shoudnt do any workouts or anything till your fully healed, had a friend that went to a climbing comp while he was sick, he ended up throwing up blood so take it easy, try to learn more about parkour or about some movements you dont know or do easy vaults or drills at home, I dont know thats what I always do

You are trying to research something at school and when you concentrate really hard on trying to remember what to search and you keep thinking Parkour just the word over and over again until you just say eh screw this and type it in.

There arent to many THings you really need in parkour you need to know how to Roll and land and thats like the big two some other ones not as dire but important you ned to know how t respect your training area and the people that own it as well as local citizens you never know when jumping of the roof of your local park gazibo will traumatize some four year old or whatever so I guess spacial awareness. About gymnastics or tumbling look at it this way, parkour is the art of movement the more movements you know, are confident with and can do the better you never know when a cartwheel or handspring could save your life but really its all up to you. Also like someone said you may want to find someone to teach you or just to point out if somethings wrong.

Okay its beenn a very long time but Im back because school just started today So I am not gonna sit here for an hour and fill in the entire summer I will give a overview thing. First off I have gotten lazy dis summer with conditionin. I have done parkour but I need to get back into my workouts and second off I went to Hawaii and the parkour there is AWESOME!! I like it just as much as Boulders spots I did alot of levers and pullps there because there wus a workout station right next to my hotel so that was awesome. Oh Yeah before I left I booked it conditioning core and arm strength manly I did this by going Climbing like 5 days a week and that was awesome but then my expensive membership ran out but Luckily I have convinsed my parents to get me a new one. I am going to start doing ladders again they are my favorite as well as an Iron Gym, I dont like my other bar it turns my callouses purple and grey and bloody, Its a very bad bar And I hate it but the Iron gym has that cusion thing and I can pick em up for like 20 bucks so why not. I am going to try to update this log but cant promise every day.


Today I am going to CATS and I am kind of recovering from yesterday so thats it.

try real life, its 100000000x more fun and more realistic
yeah i always found mirrors edge to be kind of dull seing as I could be out training to do that kind of stuff some day, and the rolls sometimes would be like after he had already landed and stood up and then he would roll or he would go like halfway back up and then do a bad forward roll painful to watch, looks like such a cool city for roofgaps and pk.

So I havnt posted in a couple weeks and I am not going to sit here for a hour posting it in so Im just gonna doa quick idea of what I did each week
So the first week I didnt post it was Bouldering actually more than parkour that week just cus We get kicked out everywhere so  we are building a pk structure. Other wise until then I am doing a couple hours of Bouldering everyday or everyother day.
Second week I did parkour with my visiting cousin a few hours each day and there were like two 3 hour hikes during that week.

Thazt what I been up to trying to keep this updated but personnaly I dont want to spend my sumer in front of a screen ha how many kids have you heard say that?!

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: all teh hatezorz lolol
« on: July 19, 2009, 11:00:14 AM »
People seem to think Oh parkour is crazy dangerous but think about it lets break down football look at the linebackers people seem to think parkour is more dangerous than foot ball but your average football players lifespan is 50-60 years and football players are twice as likely do pass away before theyre fiftieth birthday than your averege baseball or soccer player. Im not hating on Football or the football communiity but those are facts. Even gymnasts have a high chance of injuries or tendonitis although gymnasts are some of the most respected and all around fit athletes gymnastics has one of the highest injury rates of all sports and many pro gymnasts have benn hospitalized at one point or another in theyre career from gymnastic related injuries. From 1990 to 2005 over 425,000 teens and children were hospitalized from gymnastics related injuries and although parkour has not been as widespread to be able to compare to gymnastics I doubt that the number will be as high or even higher than gymnastics related injuries. So all in all i=when you get down to it parkour is not really a crazy sport that teens do when they have a death wish. Sorry to beat on many peoples favorite sports but those are facts and I think the other communitys need to realize that parkour is just as down to earth as theyre sports, disciplines or arts are.

Dont look back just concentrate on the obstacles in front of you this applys to a ton of stuff othere than parkour just try to stay as focused as possible on yourself not on the knife wielding maniac/zombie/Spongebob behind you.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Parkour Insult Fail
« on: June 30, 2009, 08:36:28 AM »
I think its funy how people spend alot of time making up insults for people that do pk even though they dont know them and barely know what pk is. I know a kid really good at all sports and he was really competitive and had to be good at everything and then he found out I was good at pk and he couldnt do squat of it and he spend so much time obsessing about how stupid it was just bacause he wasnt good at it. It was annoying as hell but I thought it was hilarios after a while.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Its so FRAKIN HOT!!!....
« on: June 30, 2009, 08:32:31 AM »
Wow jeez never expereicnd weather that hot I guess just try to train indoors I dont know if there are any Gymnastic Gyms/Crossfit GYms around you but if you want to Stay cool and in shape maybe go swim laps at the pool if you have on in your town, just a suggestion but thats what I do if its Motivation just force yourself to work out and then Gradually throughout the Workout you will gain motivation and if your workout is on a schedule it helps because you know what your workout is and when to do it so its like disciplining yourself to workout at home more.

Some of these guys can move way better than alot of "in shape" kids being a little overweight shouldnt be an excuse not to do Parkour. They ware actually god at pk.
