Arkansas / Training in NWA?
« on: November 27, 2016, 01:32:52 PM »
I know this board seems to be rather inactive, but I figure I'd try it anyway. I've just moved from Austin and am new to Fayetteville. Are there any communities in Northwest Arkansas?

Condition.  You're damaging your body over the long term if you try parkour movements without conditioning.

Welcome to parkour!  I lead training sessions on Saturday mornings at 0900 at Waterloo Park, if you're interested.  I'd be more than happy to show you the ropes.  Our group has all sorts of skill levels, and there's always a few people who are relatively new, so you'd be in good company.  Shoot me an email if you're interested — the email link under my picture should be accurate.

Hi, John!  If you're interested, I lead training sessions every Saturday morning at 9am at Waterloo Park.  I'd be happy to have you along!

In regards to the Tuna in vegetable oil
If you put that stuff in a colander and rinse it out. bam not more vegetable oil.

Not quite.  Oil and water don't mix, so the large majority won't be rinsed off.  It'll stay in the tuna.

There are several groups active in the DFW area.  You might try finding them on the forums at Texas Parkour

Uhhh, Paleo is probably way healthier.

But there's worse things you can do than oatmeal. If you feel fine on it then you're probably OK.

Just make sure you get some quality fats.

My diet is pretty clean, all told.  Between the EVOO, nuts, nut butters, avocados, and fish oil supplementation, I think I'm good on fats.

To clarify: oatmeal is a measure to control some minor hypercholesterolemia.

Was thinking about doing this, but the doctor's telling me to eat my oatmeal.  Was really interested; might try implementing this some time after oatmeal isn't such a big issue.

Welcome to parkour and to the forums, Nikki!  There are groups training around the DFW area.  You'll probably be able to connect with them more easily on the Texas Parkour forums than here.  In particular, Stephen Laster has been known to go out of his way to train with people all around the DFW area.

Texas / Re: Spring break visit, where should i go?

Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and the Dallas / Fort Worth areas all have active parkour scenes, and all of us are very friendly.  You could always take the tour…

Ranch ≠ healthy.

This should be in the diet section.  Go read the Eating Right sticky again.

Cool, where will you be?  What city?

Welcome to the boards and to parkour, Anne!  I don't know anyone who trains in Nacogdoches, but you might try heading over to the boards at Texas Parkour to see if you get any bites there.  Good luck!

Can't wait until my knees are good so I can actually start Starting Strength.

I say this every day.  Hang in there, buddy!

Also, eat more if you're trying to gain more weight!  GOMAD is supposed to be on top of normal diet, not instead of it.  Gotta get used to cramming down more food past the point where it's uncomfortable to eat.

Around the capitol and other state buildings but be ware of cops. They will probably kick you off and maybe run your name but you can't really get in trouble unless you are vandalizing something or you have a warrant out for you ha ha.

Untrue.  Once they ask you to leave, you are trespassing.

Near there is also the college campus directly adjacent to the state buildings. It is really great as well but I know the local crew has been banned?? unofficially? not sure. Just be respectful and move along if you get stopped by campus security. 

Parkour Austin, the club that has been officially registered with the UT Dean of Students office, has been asked not to "jump, climb, or crawl" on the University grounds.  Therefore, Texas Parkour does not condone parkour training on campus.  We're working on getting back on the campus, though it's slow going.

Also check Out TX Parkour and click the Austin city training to link up with the local crew there. I know they have a gym day once a week, a more beginner day and a more intense training day later in the week. You might want to contact one of them before to ensure they will be there for sure. They are super fun to train with and they are really nice guys.  They are usually on the Texas Parkour sight more than APK. Look for Mathew or Levi on there they are 2 of the most assessable on the site. 

If you're looking to train, there are gym days every Monday at 19:30 at Olympic Hills.  There is also Wednesday evening at 18:30 at Waterloo Park, and I'm looking to bring back Saturday morning trainings once the school year starts up again.


In the Cross Training section of your first post you said you wont lift, no way no how. Why? I am very curious as to why you say such things.

Awaiting your response fool,

These things were said a long time ago, and said in ignorance of how the body works.  This does not apply anymore.

Would you mind restating your goals?

Good idea.  I need to remind myself of these as not to lose sight.

  • 15 continuous ring push ups (current: 6)
  • 10 continuous PPPUs on ground (current: 3)
  • 15 continuous pull ups, bar to nips (current: 4)
  • 15 continuous knees to elbows (current: 6)
  • 15 continuous skin-the-cats (current: 5)
  • 10 second natural leg curls (current: 3 sec negatives)
  • Rehab the knee

Sat 26 Dec 2009 through Mon 28 Dec 2009

Just GTG pulls and rehab.

Tue 29 Dec 2009


EDT block 1: 47 ring push ups + 32 knees to elbows (+4/+3)
EDT block 2: skipped, since I accidentally went to failure on RPUs, so my first PPPU almost killed me

Kinda feeling crappy and weaker, since I'm trying to get to a stricter paleo diet.  Meals take forever to eat, and I still don't really feel full for long.

Very uncertain right now, BrMayes.  It's historically been hosted by SA Crew, though the North Texas community has been growing by leaps and bounds.  We'll have to see as things progress.

However, there are three major jams going on in Austin, DFW, and Houston in the first three months.  I don't remember the dates, but they're listed on the TXPK website.
