I would say monkeys are my greatest inspiration. Their fluidity is astonishing really.

Consumer Whores / VIVOBAREFOOTs?
« on: June 06, 2012, 10:29:06 AM »
I am looking for a minimalist shoe and I found <a href="http://www.vivobarefoot.com/us/mens/aqua-lite-mens-28.html "target="_blank">these[/url]
Its the Aqua Lite for men. I really like the look of the white one and was wondering if anyone would recommend this shoe or maybe even suggest a different one? Please let me know, thanks.

P.S. The link will open a new tab

Two of my closest friends learned about it and trained while I was busy with wrestling. About 7 months later I was finally free and they were always asking me to come out so I did. In about a 2 hour session with one of them I learned how to kong, lazy, turn vault, and dash. I progressed quickly and ever since I have been interested in it. Unfortunately I have not practiced in a long time but I am trying to change that by slowly reintroducing myself back into it.

hey thanks to the both of you guys, you were very helpful and I do know what blocking is but i was never taught how to use it effectively, Shay you really helped a lot and thank you i will try that later on today. Alex thank you as well and ik my feet are high in this one (i have a huge vertical, I get rim on an 8ft hoop and im 5'8") but they really aren't THAT high, it looks that way b/c the camera was on the ground, on top of a snow shovel, but now that i recall watching numerous blocking vids and looking at this one i realize what you're talking about, I would've missed that, but can you tell me if I am UNtucking at the right time? thank you

Note: I love Eminem so obviously the song is gna be one of his, sorry if you dont like it but please just help.
I also took the liberty of putting the flip in slow motion twice to really give you the full view of it.

Well, I was right there with you with the balling up part.  It's literally the scariest thing I've done in my life so far.  The only thing I can suggest that helps the fear is visualizing the technique, listening to a crazy song, and not thinking about it before you do it.  As for the ankles, I would youtube "Titanium Ankles".  It's a very useful tutorial by a tricker named Dogen which helps strengthen your ankles.
yeah i have seen that, i do the exercises all the time. My ankles are really strong but its just the way i land but yeah ik what your talking about. I have to get my aunt to spot me on the ground. She tought me it on the trampoline and now i can do it perfectly including x-outs and layouts. hopefully she can teach me on the ground

I usually listen to some Eminem. He can really get me focused depending on the song, as some work better than others for me. Something like "Space Bound" off the Recovery album works or "When I'm Gone" from Curtain Call: The Hits. These songs really work for me. I use them when I train to help pump me up, I usually hit precisions better when I have something like that blasting. Like last night I stuck a 9' 4" precision while either Seduction, So Bad, or Space bound was playing. They help me a lot.

Freerunning / Re: Can somebody help me with my Front flip ( video)
« on: December 21, 2010, 06:04:49 PM »
When you are running try to use strides they usually help, also try to get you legs out in front of you more, that will help shoot you upward and give you more airtime, then its just the mechanics of a front flip, block, jump high, use arms to throw body forward, bring knees to chest, tuck, spot, untuck, land, absorb, celebrate!  ;D

Alright thank you, I will keep that in mind, but final question, do you do that on EVERY side of just certain sides? and if so which ones?

yeah well it is going to be on a 20x20ft concrete patio so it will be pretty stationary. My full plans are here: http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,31672.20.html

Yeah I know how it is set up and idk if I really like that to be honest, would it still be the same except for a little more weight if I covered that up with plywood?

That is a really good idea, thank you M2!  ;D

But one more question, Do you have to do that for every part of the parcube or just the face? What I mean by that is do you have to do the every 16" on the smaller side too?

Parkour And Freerunning / Do you really need 3/4 plywood for a parcube?
« on: December 18, 2010, 12:37:54 PM »
I have 4 sheets of 1/2" plywood in my garage and I was wondering if I could use those instead of 3/4 or should I double them up for 1"? I don't really want to do that as it would be extremely heavy but I will if I need to, that would make it stronger, but is it really worth it? please help. Any help from M2 would be greatly appreciated.  ;D

Hey thanks so much, that really helps and i was thinking i could pull down my mattress when my mom isn't home and i could practice on that lol I think it would work but i still am not sure if i could ball up to it. For me it took me about 1 year to ball up to it on the trampoline so thats my main fear, ik i could do it but there is that fear nagging at me just b4 i do it EVERY time it sucks b/c ik i could do it, i have landed them with a spotter b4 but the last one i ever did i landed on my head and it hurt lol but the main part that really sucks to me is the part where my ankle always gets tweaked for some reason, any suggestions?

Socialize / Re: Wall of Wow...
« on: December 09, 2010, 12:17:13 PM »
Lol I don't actually think you were put on here... I said to put it on the "Wall of... wow" not knowing this thread actually existed.

A quadruple post is 4 posts in a row. To explain: a despicable act on a forum is to double-post, i.e. to post twice in a row, one after the other in the same thread. You blew that away, doing 4 posts in a row. Hence the amazement. The preferred method to handle the situation on online forums is to edit your last post with the new ideas/info.
Ohhhh okay, but it's more fun to do a quad post b/c then it angers people lol jk but i didnt even realize it lol
