Hey everyone!   Hope you guys are doing well.  Hopefully I'll be back on the islands soon.

Here is what I did as a school project here at the Art institute of Seattle.

The wii is easier to set up and better with racket sports and maybe with bowling if your using the motion plus.  Other then that the kinect is awesome! Full body movements, lunging jumps side to side, kicks, punches.. Even when I was balancing on the ball my avatar looked like he was balancing.  It doesn't beat movement workout outside in a beautiful sunny island.  But for rainy Washington it hits the spot.

 Healing pretty well. by 6 weeks I was walking pretty normal and the mcl is suppose to be finished scarring. By 8 weeks the scar is woven  with tissue and I can start running again. For me this is on the 20th. So im looking forward to it.

 Still cant jump, do parkour, or gymnastics

another dive video... I like the music I put into it. Hopefully youtube doesn't plug the audio again. 

   This dive was fun. I forgot my weight belt so all my dives I would exhale my air to counter balance the extra buoyancy of my 5mm suit.  Diving down to 75' with no air in my lungs was an awesome experience. I felt pretty freaking good. which shouldn't be a surprise since thats how dolphins and seals dive.

   My best bud growing up just informed me he moved his wedding up to the 6th of aug.  I really don't think I can afford to go to maui and to Cali less then a 2 weeks apart.  It Might be possible but im probably down to a 40% yes now.

  Good news is the doc said I should be able to pick up a light jog by the 20th.

 I'm still a high probably.  It depends on

1) My recovery, I'm not suppose to be walking without my crutches till friday ( I stopped using them 14days after my injury( oops)). But I will find out if will even be capable of running ( VERY SHORT DISTANCES)  when I go to my physical therapy appointment on friday.
2) what the physical therapist says my limitations are.
3) whether or not you guys put out a solid itinerary
4) What I think my limitations are, and If your itinerary fits.

       I probably wont buy the tickets until the 20th.

For maximum exposure I like to double post my shit QWHAHAHAHHHaaa!

  but seriously does anyone even check the video thread?

  went to the Seatiger yesterday and did a test run of some parkour at -90'.... gave me a super sick idea of an artistic rendition of parkour FLOW... stay tuned because its going to be SICK!

    I agree that its good to have goals for a work out.
    And I do think its fun to test yourself. I like to find random test in health magazines, I do the army pt test, ect.  But I NEVER base my work out on it. Once you start focusing you will start specializing in only those activities and your body will adapt to excel in those but by compromising in other areas.  These may not be HUGE compromises, like not being able to run marathons because you only climb every day. But it will put gaps into your physical abilities

     If you only focus your work out on these 12 test your missing out, I guarantee it.

Hi, is this THE Forum in Internet, where most active discussion of Movnat/Methode naturelle -type of training is going on?

If so, I would like to hear your opinion or knowledge on how to measure progress in this kind of training? I know about Heberts 12 tests (
But how is progress measured in MovNat? Or are those 12 tests still valid way to measure today?

My own training is sort of mix of Movnat type workouts, some strength training and bouldering quite actively. In bouldering progressing is easy to see, but more difficult in "natural training".. ???

  This is the most thorough natural fitness forum I have found.  But its not sponsored by MOV/NAT

   The Point of staying Fit through Natural fitness isn't about becoming a " level 7 or 12". 

   The only measure of your fitness should be Your Environment.

Derek - actually better to have you be at front, setting pace. Others can hang back, try extra tricks, whatever... because they can catch up.

  Hmmm... Im starting to second guess myself..   Im not much of a parkour guy, I just like to play around... But i dont think i will be able to any parkour, just some jogging around with my camera and witnessing on the fun.   But having people wait around for me while I "catch up" really hurts my Alpha pride. I dont like that thought.
      It would be cool if an itinerary is put up. So that I can know what I will be able to participate in.

   I'm still flying over there, I need to see more of the islands before I move.  If I cant hang then ill probably just go on my own one legged adventures

 Dont worry about modifying anything.. If I cant hang its my fault.  I'm sure I can find something else to do.  But Im pretty sure by those dates I should be around 75%.  Able to do most of the activities just back of the pack
