Parkour / Re: Reverse Vault tips?
« on: April 07, 2009, 06:54:13 PM »
It always helped me to lead with my butt ( I know it sounds weird but it really does work well) and keep my legs tucked in tight together. This is one of my favorite vaults when it's performed properly.

Parkour / Re: Climbing Pipes? ...anyone?

Yeah this skill is definitely worth experimenting with, especially if that's basically all there is in your town.  Just be sure to check all of your surfaces and don't try to do anything too rash.  If nothing else, it'll still give you a good workout:).  Good luck and definitely post a video if you get good and fluid at it.

There must be peanut butter.

I agree completely.  But I also think it'd be sweet if we all lived in the wilderness, so that the major cities got all overgrown and stuff.  That way, we would still have the sweet architecture to train on, without the hard landings on concrete and asphalt.

I don't think I can trump Adrenaline for worst thing ever, but I'm pretty sure being in a fight against Bruce Lee (reborn), Chuck Norris, and David Belle would suck pretty bad.

Yeah I got a pair of old used Pumas over the summer, and by now the left big toe is completely worn through.  It gets annoying when training in the rain...

You're talking to a knifemaker  ::)




hahaha. And I agree with Scott, you just wanna sideflipkick (I just made that one up) a deer in the face.
It may or may not run into a car afterwards.

QM.

Yeah quadrupedal movement (qm) can be really beneficial for both balance and overall body strength.  http://www.americanparkour.com/content/view/1934/377/

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Suburban Parkour

I'd definitely agree that the potential is a lot higher in urban areas, but there can still be plenty of great spots in suburban areas too.  Parks are great for mostly everything.  Another thing that can be useful is just driving around where you live and looking.  Trust me, good training spots jump out at you like crazy.
- parks are great for everything
- Ledges and rails for everything
-etc.

I concur.
