Unlimited energy. No matter ow far you run or climb you never feel weak or feel the need to stop.

Why I started I've always climbed on everything and when I found out that Parkour existed it just felt right.

Why I continue Because I like doing it.

History I've been doing running since 15 and in that time I've rolled my ankle, dealt with two ganglion cysts both in right wrist, taken two falls that have knocked the breath out of my lungs (asthma problems...) and blacked out after a fall.

Worst Injury I was going to swing from an overhead ledge, lost my grip and only fell about six feet but after falling the next thing I remember is standing in my classroom standing on wobbling legs, a bloody elbow, breathing problems and my head pulsing so hard my vision would blur. Not sure what happened...

What I'm going to do Watch what the hell I'm doing! LOL

Goals for the month/year Be able to run for at least ten minutes straight then work on twenty minutes.

Plan to get there Running daily +30 secs every few days

What's Parkour to me To me Parkour is a sort of freedom as this is the first thing I've ever been able to get into without being judged by my entire family. It's also one of the ways I release stress.

What I want out of parkour Well I'm not really sure how to answer that but Parkour has helped me get over my fear of falling, jumping from object to object. Parkour has helped my conditioning and made me stronger both physically and mentally.

How I contribute to Parkour I spread the good word about parkour and tell people what it's really about.

Parkour And Freerunning / Wrapping hands
« on: May 19, 2015, 07:01:25 AM »
Most everyone knows that gloves and Parkour/Freerunning don't mix very well. They mess up your grip and no matter what size gloves you're wearing your hands always slip around inside. A lot of Tracer vets will even tell you that it's good for your hands to get ripped up because it hardens your hands and they'll be more callus resistant. Well I've been training for about a year and a half and I'm constantly ripping my hand and forming calluses which eventually rip open and leave me with exposed nerves. So I decided to start experimenting with different wraps that could be used to protect your hands while having good grip. I've been using self-adhesive wrapping my hands with enough layers to protect the callus-prone areas on my hands but not so much that i can't bend my hand or cut off circulation. Though I've only used the wrap a few times it's always worked for me. I mainly do vaults and swings on playground equipment. Has anyone else tried this? How did it effect the way you train? What's your opinion on it?

That would actually be pretty cool

Injuries - Discussion / Rolled my ankle awhile back...
« on: March 11, 2015, 07:55:31 AM »
So awhile back I rolled my ankle while taking photos at a national park. I didn't practice or anything until about two weeks after I could walk on it with out it hurting. Just for safety reasons I was wondering if anyone knows of some movements I should avoid, if any.

Why not just text? I mean both require service but only one can work without internet access.

Oklahoma / Spring plans
« on: March 05, 2015, 07:58:17 PM »
Well it looks like winter finally decided to show up in Oklahoma. Once it warms up and I have some free time I'm going to start up again. Aside from OKPK monthly meets anyone have any plans in the coming months?

I listen to usic from almost every genre but I can't listen to it while training (to distracting) but I listen to music when I work out, mainly debstep, some rock and rap.
