Gyms...oh yeah.
« on: April 12, 2006, 05:27:30 PM »
I know somepeople don't like gyms, but I've got to say, if you have the oppertunity try it.  I just got back from an open gym session that lasted an hour and a half and I feel soooooo good its amazing.  I'm gonna be so sore tomorrow. ;D small price to pay.
Rusty, but still solid.

Obviously nothing replaces PK out on the streets but the gym is def. good for working on techniques that are a bit intimidating in other environments.  it would probably have taken me a lot longer to work up the nerve for a good dash or real distance on my kongs w/o a little work in the gym.  Plus u can always spend some time on flips just cuz they are fun :)

I agree, it is comforting to know that if you catch your feet while vaulting and faceplant, you will eat mat and not rocks. Definitely helped me with my kongs

I have ate my fair share of mate in all areas.  That and we must keep in mind that foam pits and crash mates are great fun.

The one we have here is a layered pit and what that means is that its like layers of really soft mats.

Be that as it may, when you don't fully rotate on a gainer, you get stuck.  If I had a foam pit, I'd sleep in it.

Thought about it.  Only problem with a layered pit is alittle harder.  8)
