I don't understand this when it comes to Parkour or Freerunning.

I look around for people who are training or what-have-you and they are no where to be found.

It seems that you have to go far and wide looking in weight gyms or gymnastic gyms to find some traceurs/trickers. What is this off season?

I live in Michigan. We get the fury of the Great Lakes during the winter months and (given the opportunity) I still find myself bundling up and going for a jaunt around town. I mean, isn't that why we have hats and gloves and jackets and balaclavas?  In Holland, Michigan on top of that. So, I am right on Lake Michigan.

Explain yourselves!

People are huddled away or working on their tricking in tumbling classes. I can get behind hitting a tumbling class. I did that, too for a spell.

But come on. Humans adapt and overcome. Weather is just another obstacle traceurs need to overcome, no?

Diet / Vegan Diet
« on: February 20, 2012, 10:08:24 AM »
Why isn't there a thread on here about a Vegan diet?

I want to know what the common people and the learned people (on nutrition, fitness, etc. with the major or degree so on) think and feel about eating a Vegan diet compared to vegetarian and carnivorous diets.

The comparable results of a whole foods, micro nutrient based diet and a macro nutrient based diet.

Not only am I interested in the common and learned perspective of results and individual views, but I also want to know your views on the availability, lifestyle, and cost of the offered diets.

I speak of dieting as a lifestyle and not a temporary solution. Diet, to me, is what you eat. Period. Not a short term process which you undertake for weight loss or the like.

Injuries - Discussion / I haven't Been to the DOCTOR for it but...

This can be a thread for every injury that you should've but didn't get to a doctor about.

I attempted a backflip this past summer and landed improperly. My two middle fingers feel weakened, pained, and sometimes broken. I have function in them but I cannot bend them back as far as I could before without tension and alot of PAIN.

Also, I rolled my right ankle before I started parkour one delicious drunk night. 3 story drop from a balcony, drunk, during winter, retrieving a sword that had been dropped. I didn't feel it until later, but I now feel it more often than not.

But for actual training and conditioning we will have a steady Summer schedule and a flexible winter schedule.
Get a hold of me.

    This is the beginning of my Journal. I never really keep track of these sorts of things, but if it helps me improve quickly and efficiently I would be a fool not to try it out.

    • Kong to Precision
    • Bar Muscle Ups
    • Standing Back Flip
    • Aerial
    • Higher Wall Run
    • Kong to Cat
    • Self Motivation (Eating Healthy Being Healthy)

    I won't be putting what I eat really ... I am not sure exactly why people do, but I am sure someone will explain it to me.
