Pics & Vids / Week 3: Training
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:17:16 PM »
Still at it, and a bit higher:

Sorta thinking I should utilize the training log section of the forum ... also kinda thinking that at least there's something up that's not *completely* spam ... also wondering if the mods are active, so, feel free to shuffle the thread location, hypothetical mod.

Peace out, hypothetical reader!

Round 2! I'll probably increase the height one more week, then start to make music with the landing noises and work in some didgeridoo :) Hmu @PKPhilosopher and check out my barefoot running contact analysis vid, second latest YT upload

Pics & Vids / Week 1: Training
« on: August 11, 2014, 01:05:15 PM »
It's been four years since I've done any training for Parkour. I've been juggling and running, and not doing so well, personally. Life gave me a kick in the butt, and I'm back at it! Three minutes and something, and the rest of my training activities are in the description. Give a holla on Twitter @PKPhilosopher (thanks to Crump for the name!) and if you're on Long Island, NY hit me up, and I'll see you guys next week!

Parkour And Freerunning / Freerunning Gym Pants!
« on: May 11, 2012, 09:17:07 AM »
Dear Parkour Community,

   I was around and very involved when more folk started going to Parkour jams for "Freerunning," when the movement became about gym tricks and stylish pants.

   Belle came from a slum, in essence, and transcended, sparking a movement of health, intellect, and altruism.

   There is sentiment of Zen and other old cultural wisdoms, 'let us reflect on our footsteps.'

Thank you so much for being,
~G

Someone made an ill parkour video set to Mr. Scruff's "Keep Moving" like five years ago, PLEASE someone know what I'm talking about. My friend keeps singing that song out of key over and over saying he found the song when I showed it to him way back then cause of that video. It was ... maybe a minute thirty, two minutes of pure parkour awesometastical jam sauce win.

Who's training here? Please let it not just be me, I'm out of steam for solo training. If anyone in the area sees this, please speak up. If anyone who isn't in the area wants to come train, speak up, too.

Training Journals / Twitchkidd - Back on the Path!
« on: November 26, 2008, 01:16:09 PM »
So I didn't train for like forever, just started doing exercises again. Seriously, last time was for like a week this summer, then for like a week in the spring.

And I WONDER why I went insane?

Ok so my training log is going to be on my google website: http://sites.google.com/site/twitchkidd/Home

But I'll post here too, why not :)

Parkour And Freerunning / How can my friend progress?
« on: May 20, 2007, 05:49:59 PM »
Hi. My friend has a somewhat twisted leg and foot from birth (not so much you'd notice at a glance, or even hanging out with her for a while), but still wants to make her body all it can be. The trouble is that it's hard for her to run too many times a week before her leg starts hurting, and jumping has the same problem. Does anyone know of a way she can train and condition that wouldn't tear her legs apart so much? Thanks in advance!

Movement / Training Techs
« on: March 02, 2007, 09:11:50 PM »
So .. ze repetition is very importannnt ...

If I take a day to just do three or four techs a hundred times each, which would be good ones to choose?
I figure if they work the same muscle groups that wouldn't be too good, what do you guys think.

Thanks in advance,
~G

Movement / Does this happen a lot?
« on: January 25, 2007, 02:04:26 AM »
So I've been in this for a little over two years, but haven't trained as hard as I should have, but my latest real achievement technically has been a roll on concrete. Then I tried them today and made all the old mistakes. Is this going to be a long road, or will I just get it again? Any experienced traceurs here ever 'lose' moves like this?

Parkour And Freerunning / To anyone who is early in their pk journey ...
« on: October 28, 2006, 11:35:51 AM »
I've been doing pk and training lightly for nearly two years now. Now, I started as a very poor athlete, and I'm proud of what I have gotten from parkour, but looking back, there are some things that I would have liked to have been doing for these nearly two years, like training harder. After this long, I still can't roll right, and I suck in general. So what I'm going to do it take my training by the throat, but what I can do for anyone beggining is to suggest training your butt off so you're not dissapointed by your gains. I don' know how I can ask for your trust, but trust me, it will be worth it. Good luck!

Movement / A potentially dangerous situation.
« on: October 20, 2006, 12:51:23 PM »
Hi. I'm looking at a drop from one partof a roof onto another, and then onto the ground. The first drop is onto a slanted surface (45* towards the ground) with decent traction, and because of the slant the drop can be between 7 and 12 feet. It looks like I should go where it's 7 feet, but would the extra force of the landing from slightly higher help me stick it and maybe keep the frictional mu for a static rather than dynamic(skidding)? Any good physics people out there?
Much appreciated,
Twitch

New York / Long Island Traceurs
« on: September 12, 2006, 05:06:08 PM »
Well, I'm gone, but there are still other traceurs all over the island. If you look here and you're in nassau or suffolk, get in contact with a guy whose aim is 'fitchesbluefox', he's the guy to talk to about getting together with some other traceurs. Tell him gareth sent you, and please please keep the scene hot!

Peace out for a while nypk,

Parkour And Freerunning / Motivation
« on: April 25, 2006, 05:58:19 PM »
I haven't pked by myself in a long time. I haven't gone running in a long time. Forget apk wotds.

Today in english class, my teacher asked the class to think about our roots. What sort of fertilizer makes us who were are. Who's pinning hammocks to us. Etc.

What makes us go? What sort of things make a traceur tri ... tick? I'd like to get to know a little more about the US scene, and I might find some inspiration in the mix, so if you want, go for it.

Thanks in advance,
Twitch

Movement / A foot placement question
« on: March 30, 2006, 05:22:09 PM »
There's a spot where I really like to spring out of a monkey plant, jump a small gap and then right out of it jump a bush. It's not a very large bush, but I have to spring to the side immediately upon landing to keep the flow, so to speak, and to avoid slamming into a wall. My question is, when you have to get out of a landing by moving perpendicular to the way you came in, how do you do it? I've been landing 45* off and getting the rest from a strong (relatively;)) push from my outside leg to do the rest of the job, how about you? Landing fully sideways? Landing straight and pushing off really hard? Some crazy roll type thing? Using the wall?

Parkour And Freerunning / Attributes
« on: March 15, 2006, 05:32:34 PM »
The people in my town who do parkour are really interested in making a pk video, and I'm going to suggest to them making it themed, rather than a random assortment of clips. I was thinking we choose some base attribute of parkour and we work on it and make a video showing it off. Any ideas? Thanks

Check it. Not great pk, I've been out of it for a while, but it's fun to watch, hopefully.
