Pics & Vids / Finally!
« on: October 11, 2008, 07:55:12 AM »
Ok, so the people that have viewed my previous threads have known that I was working on my kong, well today was a breakthrough day!

I was always scared of the picnic tables kong, but today I had gotten over that fear and konged my first picnic table. I know this might not sound like a big deal to a lot of people, but to me this is door-opening. I am very happy that i have this new technique in my arsenal.

I know I have a lot of kong progression to do, but now that the length fear is past me I think it will come naturally! As always, comments and criticism are graciously accepted! Thanks!


Sorry about it not being YouTube, it was cooperating.

Pics & Vids / My Kong Progression

Ok so here's the deal. After I put my first Kong video up, I badly sprained my toe and had to take a break from parkour which made me sad. But I am back and my kongs are better than ever, tell me what you think about my progression. Criticism is graciously accepted.

Pics & Vids / T Shirts

Anyone else just decide to make random Parkour T-shirts? I know I do, so I thought that I would make a little "haven" for these designs to be placed. Maybe it will be a spot that someones design can be turned into a reality. I don't know, but I just thought it would be fun to see the artistic side to the traceurs.

Well, go for it!

Here are some of mine:

Parkour And Freerunning / My first attempt at kongs!
« on: September 22, 2008, 11:02:04 AM »
Ok, so I decided to do kongs today. I was kinda nervous about the whole take off and diving out, but I got used to that after a while. The problem I am having is getting my legs between my arms. I dont know if it is a psychological problem or if it is just my form. Comments and criticism are greatly appreciated.

Here is a vid of me today:(lol at Rob and Big in the background)

Training Journals / Kyle's Training Log
« on: September 20, 2008, 10:20:17 AM »
Hey guys!

The name is Kyle Ryan, if that isn't obvious enough from my forum name haha. I have realized that the best thing that I can do for my health and muscle strength/durability is to make one of these logs. This way I will be more motivated to work out, because I am easily embarrassed and I think if this log died so fast then I would be hugely embarrassed. So I have put this up FINALLY to go through with what I need to.

The Facts

  • I have known about Parkour for about 1.5 years, but have yet to actually train and go hard with it. This makes me very uneasy with myself.
  • I am, in my eyes, very athletic. I can run sub-five minute miles, constantly. Yet, I am very uncoordinated.
  • 6'0 170lbs. 15 pull-ups max. 30 push-ups continuously max. Looking to greatly improve them.
  • The main thing I want to get out of this log is to have a better control over my body.
  • I tend to eat out WAY too much and I am going to try and stop. So this log will also consist of my eating habits.

I am excited to FINALLY start my journey to become a skilled and confident traceur. I know that this will take time, but I am in it for the long haul!

My Goals

  • To become more flexible. I can almost touch my toes standing, which when I do will be for the first time in my life.
  • To better my habits and create a better life for myself in the future.
  • To tone my body fat into muscle.
  • 40-50 continuous pull-ups, 75-100 continuous push-ups.
  • To be able to at least hold a handstand for 10 seconds.

I know there are a lot of very nutrition/exercise knowledgeable people on this forum. I am hoping that some of them will paroose into my log and help me with suggestions.

I am at work as of now, and when I get home I will make a new post and tell what I have done/ate for the day.

Much love, Kyle.

Hey guys, when i go to do my kongs(well attempt to) i cant really get a good push off.

Another problem is that it is really hard for me to get my legs up and most of the time I cant even get half way on the picnic table. Which is wierd cause i can jump it easily...

Any help? Suggestions? or Excersizes?

I think with winter approaching, we should discuss everyones favorite things to wear in the colder weather. People in places where its always warm, screw off. Lol jk.
