Consumer Whores / Comparing KSO's to 5.10 v2?
« on: March 07, 2010, 04:15:09 PM »
So I currently have the Alien Glow Freerunners as my only Parkour shoes.  I'm getting a pair of VFF KSO's for my birthday (end of march) and I want to know how they compare in all the classes. (Durability, breathability, weight, etc)

What would be the ebst version of the VFF to buy?  I have a pair of 5.10's Alien Glow but I just want another pair.  Should I get KSO, KSO Trek, or something totally different?

Diet / Gatorade
« on: November 03, 2009, 01:03:46 PM »
So, I have stopped drinking Soda altogether.  For lunch I usually drink gatorade, and is this healthy/good for you?  I usually drink 1-2 bottles of water a day (0.9 FL Ounces per bottle)  Gatorade contains like 11% sodium for a day and 100 some calories.  Can I still drink gatorade?  I'm trying to lose water weight, and lose stomach fat.

Parkour And Freerunning / Fear
« on: October 26, 2009, 03:48:32 PM »
What should I do to conquer fear?  I have a college near my house,and there's a lot of stuff to do, but I'm afraid to do a lot of it.  Examples would be railings and precisions.  I'm afraid I'll slip and fall and ruin my face  :P  Any tips?  Or should I practice more, on ground and then when I feel good, do it?

Diet / "Water Weight"
« on: October 26, 2009, 12:30:04 PM »
What's all this water weight people are talking about?  It involves soda or something?  I've been drinking Mountain Dew for about 6 years, at least 1.5 of them per day (Some days 1 and some days 2).  I plan on stop drinking pop all together (except parties, which is like 1 every other month).  If I switch over to water, what will this do to my "water weight" or whatever it is.


Also, I read somewhere "However you should eat when your body is giving you hunger signals."  Are these signals such as, a rumble in your stomach, or it making an odd noise?

MN Jams / MN PK Shirts
« on: October 25, 2009, 05:51:56 PM »
Where can I get one of these?  I'd like to do anything I can to sponsor, and I see people wearing these shirts, but I don't know where to buy any of them.  Help!

Diet / So, you exercise, but how well do you eat?
« on: October 25, 2009, 02:01:26 PM »
Well, I exercise at least an hour a day, and so do most people, but do you eat correctly?

Most days I start breakfast out with 1 bowl of cherrios.  For lunch I have x3 Peanut B Sandwichs or a Pizza (mini-personal pan).  I'm not a lover of vegetables either.  I don't eat any at all, except mashed potatoes =D.  I eat 1 banana a day, sometimes 2.  For dinner it greatly varies.  I have 1-2 MtN dews a day.  It seems like a lot to me.

What/ how do you eat?

Parkour And Freerunning / Trapezoid Vault Box
« on: October 24, 2009, 05:04:35 PM »
Does anyone know where I can get something like http://shopper.cnet.com/track-field/trapezoid-foam-vaulting-box/4414-19313_9-51925594.html this for relativly cheap?  I was going to build a parcube, but this trapezoid thing looks much better, but expensive.  I wanted to build a parcube, but it seemed too big.  Also, the cube seems like it can't change height, and is too big across. I checked eBay and craigslist already.

Parkour / I CANT do a Kong Vault
« on: October 24, 2009, 04:59:44 PM »
No matter what I do, I can't get my legs up high enough.  My feet always trip over the top of the object.  Any tips?  Or is it the usually, jump higher/more power kind of thing?

Consumer Whores / Is VFF KSO the model I want to be buying?
« on: October 18, 2009, 04:50:52 PM »
Basically, would any of the others Spring/Flow/KSO trek be better?  I'm looking for best grip and best all around.

FAQ / Stars
« on: October 18, 2009, 04:44:06 PM »
What do the stars mean under someone name and how do you get more of them?

Also, does the smite/applaud thing do anything?

Parkour And Freerunning / Question about parcube before I make one
« on: October 18, 2009, 02:18:16 PM »
Can you change the height?  Right now I'm just beginning, but I'll want it higher when I get better.  Would you add like leg type things, to make it higher?

How long would it take to build, and can I buy all the supplies for under $100?

Does anyone got a step by step process?  I'm looking at the one on this site, and it looks kinda of confusing and unorganized.

Anyone cool design I can put on the box?  :P

Parkour And Freerunning / What PK obstacles can you make easily?
« on: October 10, 2009, 01:43:19 PM »
Well, I'm making some precision rails today, and I plan on making a Parcube next week.  Is there anything else I can make with easy that is semi cheap?

Parkour And Freerunning / Dimensions for a pair of Precision Beams
« on: October 10, 2009, 07:25:27 AM »
Well, i saw more small balance/precision beams on the APK store.  I'm tight on cash atm, but I have plenty of wood so I decided to make one.  What would be the measurements for this?

http://www.americanparkour.com/component/page,shop.product_details/flypage,flypage.tpl/product_id,154/category_id,11/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,234/

I was thinking like 2 feet for the ends and 3 feet across for the piece going in between them.  Would that be sturdy enough?  Should it be smaller/bigger?  It's mostly to stay warmed up in the cold minnesotan winter =P

APK Store / Products / Average Time to Receive
« on: October 09, 2009, 06:03:46 PM »
I placed an order tonight for one (1) t-shirt.  I payed with credit card, and I'm wondering ABOUT how long it will take for me to get it, if I live in Minnesota.

Can anyone go to the Sunday Parkour meets you guys have at the UoM?  I'm 15 and I'd be interested in going next Spring/Summer.  Do you need to register or is there any requierments?

MN Jams / Gleason's Gym
« on: October 09, 2009, 02:05:14 PM »
Where can I sign up to join it?  I just started parkour and I'm kinda bad at it.  I want to learn in a safe environment, as there is nowhere near me to practice.  Does it cost money?  Is so how much?  How often are their classes?  I know how to roll, but I want to learn vaults, swings and wallclimb/wall running.  How can I join?  I live within biking distance of it, so it would be a great opportunity. 

EDIT:  GLEASONS GYM IN EAGAN.

MN Jams / Parkour in IGH/SSP/Eagan
« on: October 08, 2009, 06:52:26 PM »
Does anyone have any good hotspots in the south east metro?  I'm located in Inver Grove Heights and I can't find any good spots to train.  I'm usually at the Community College but I can't find anywhere else.

« on: June 22, 2009, 12:32:48 PM »
Does anyone know of any good spots in Inver Grove Heights/SSP/Eagan? I don't really have a car so I can't get to Minnehaha Falls or UoM.  Currently I train at the Inver Hills Community College in IGH.
