We are social media sluts.  Every one post up videos on youtube, then facebook and tweet about them.  Some of us are even on Google+, woot!

Adidas is now coming out with 5 toed shoes.  from what I have seen they do not look like they would be for parkour.  Expect a law suit from Vibram, just like they sued Fila for jacking their design

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Athlete vs Traceur
« on: August 05, 2011, 12:18:59 PM »
as a kid: martial arts, soccer, basketball, baseball, hockey

in high school: Football, lacrosse, wrestling, track

in college: lacrosse, martial arts, running, biking, crossfit

since college: running, mountain biking, martial arts, crossfit, gymnastics, power lifting/oly lifting, parkour

I have been lifting weights actively since 13 years old, I am 26 now.  I just got into Parkour like 6 weeks ago, so I would call myself an athlete, not yet a traceur.  On my way though

tis' true they do get warm.  i still wear them in the summer, they don't get unbearably hot. 

Check out the Komodos, they have the latest changes from all the "lessons learned" from the older models failures.  The toes are reinforced, they removed all the interior stitching, reinforced the lateral movement areas, etc. My friend has them and says they are the most comfortable Vibrams ever. I am going to pick up a pair.

I saw the new ones have shoestrings, which might make the fit more secure for better Parkouring. Interesting...

I have treksports, KSO, classics, and flows.

KSO and treksports have a very thin mesh top and stretch out over time, wouldnt recommend them for parkour.  I have done more brutal stuff in my flows (parkour, tough mudders, over 100 miles of running, triathlons, etc.) and they are just starting to get rips after 2 years.  I would personally recommend the flows, although I have heard good things about the Komodos. For Parkour the Komodos might be your best bet.

Handstands (on wall, I am not freestanding for more than 3-4 seconds yet) for 5 minutes, threw in a few HSPU for good measure

In the Media / Transformers 3!
« on: July 05, 2011, 09:11:29 AM »
There is about 6 seconds of parkour in the film! All the way at the end of the movie, Shia LeBouf's character runs about a marathon worth and still find the energy to let his stunt double do some parkour for him.  My memory might be off slightly, but the camera moves to a rear 3/4 shot angle (so you cant see his face haha) then stunt double does a speed vault, Kong vault, then a mean power slide under a car.  Its well done, but SUPER obvious that its not Shia, as he doesnt move that fluidly at any other point in the trilogy. 

Overall the movie was pretty cool, but the first 45-60 minutes could really have been way shorter.  After the intro section, the movie pics up and very entertaining.  Obviously, the jokes are still pretty corny and the action is so over the top you almost cant keep up, but isnt that why we love transformers (not including transformers 2 - that was a debacle)?

I have been meaning to get over to Carabiners, but I just boulder and cant belay or any of that stuff.  We should get a group and get over there, work on our finger strength!

Sorry amigos, totally forgot but its my moms birthday! I am a horrible son! I have to go scramble for a present and head to her party.  I'm healing this toe and training handstands in preparation for when I can actually make it to an event and meet you guys/ girls.

Connecticut / Re: Shoes
« on: June 24, 2011, 10:12:31 AM »
I realize I was not terribly forthcoming with details, my apologies. I have broken my toes barefoot running on some seriously rugged wilderness trails (hit on branches/rocks etc.).  I have good running form, didn't break the toes from running as much as I did from doing something dangerous that should really be done with some foot protection (hence blaming the shoes and my concern with using them for parkour).  I been running/lifting heavy/doing crossfit/martial arts barefoot a while and no fatigue/weakness related injuries yet!  I appreciate the advice and agree with your comments with the info originally posted.

I can tentatively make it, but I am warning you, this is going to be a Sunday morning decision, so I am quite tentative. I will what I can to get over there!

Android app for this is the quickest and easiest way to get caught.  Unless the app is is named GPS to disguise it or something.  Only way to do that is to "go incognito" in a chrome browser or something like that.  I am not disgusted that this service exits or that someone would create it, I am disgusted that its not out of business - because that means people are using it, and thats sad.
