Currently been training my parkour abilities a minimum of three times a week, plus an open gym session. I also run cross country/track & field to keep in shape as well as improve my muscle reflex and stamina.
Basic info is I've been a traceur for several years now. I've started tricking a month or so ago. I'm 16 years old, 5'7" and 130lbs. with a body fat % around 7% because of my high school distance running career.
For parkour I can currently perform: all the "basic" vaults smoothly (depending on the situation that is), 12 foot wall runs, 5-8 foot precisions, and 12-15 foot gap leaps (once again depending on the situation).
For freerunning/tricking I am currently able to perform: Front/back tuck, back layout, front pike, full/half, arabian, b-twist/kick, wall flip, wall flip 180, wall flip flair, straight legged gainer, and probably more (I'll post once I remember the rest of the list). I'm currently working on my corkscrew and wall flip full as well, I post progress as it comes.
My upcoming goals are to:
-Properly land a corkscrew and wallflip full.
-Improve my flow through both a rural and urban environment.
-Improve my vertical jump.
-Get more intune with my surroundings and environment to become more in tune with myself.
So that's my first entry, more to come soon.
