Oh, I should have mentioned: I'm celebrating my 47th birthday by doing 4,700 pushups in a single day as a Wounded Warrior benefit:

I'm getting tired of people saying I'm too old for Parkour. Or even fitness in general. I'm only 34. Seesh people act like I'm 80.
OK-I am a F/49. Overweight. Started a diet and for once, it is going well. I was training specifically with kettlbells and bodyweight for sport lifting after PT. Now, I am trying to transition. I find my body does better with two on/two off schedule. I am thinking about this to get back into shape:I love it-- I think it's great that you're building in days for rolling and landing. My PK injuries all stem from lack of ability rolling and landing. This sounds like a really sensible plan. Just one thing: make sure to add something fun in; I get bored and end up abandoning plans when they include no fun.
Moderate Day: Body Weight.
Hard Day: QM, core work, landing, rolling and KB for conditioning.
No Day: Joint Mobility
Easy Day: Balance. Roll practice. Stretching.
OK. So I am back and it has been a journey. Knee surgery, back injury and weight gain. Also felt that I really had no place in PK. I am now coming up on 50. My goal: to be more healthy than I have ever been. I want to have fun. Maybe no 10 ft. gap jumps at 20 feet. Possibly a 3 footer at 10:)You absolutely have a place in parkour. I do too; I'm 46 and have some knee issues. It will mean something different to us than it does to the 19 year olds you see doing 10 foot drops. It *is* about fun. And you and I have the wisdom to know what will be fun and what will be needlessly injurious.
Now I'm older a bit pudgy around the middle and I think it's a great idea to get back into what I seemed to know instinctively.
Yikes! I haven't been on the forum keeping track of my progress since August 25th, ay dios mio!Bleh, I really let mine go, too, as I ramped up for my 46-mile run. Now that's done, and I'll be getting back to parkour little by little; I'm doing some strength conditioning to give my body a little more protection before jumping back in.
depends on what that person is going to do with it no one under 21 or over 50 should be jumping off of a building but really anybody can do parkour and start whenever it's all about your own physical limitations and strengthsAhem; what's so special about being over 50? That's just a few short years away for me.

My name's Sebastian and I'll be turning 28 in a month. Yeah, I know this is for the over 30 crowd but if you could cut me a little slack, I'd be greatly obliged. I'm crazy out of shape but am completely captivated by this.
