Open Gym!
I brought along someone who wants to learn, taught them the basic vaults. I practiced my rolls, they still arent right!!! >:( >:( >:(
I played with it as much as i could too! so i dont know how i could still be doing something wrong. I really think its my bone structure..
What if I can't do Parkour?! :'(

lol, maybe...maybe your body isn't round enough. If it's too erect (lol) you'll be slamming your hip.
I'm boney, and I only got a truly smooth roll once or twice. the other times i have to hit my spine, lightly or painfully. So don't give up bro :)

Rest day. Did some Jump-Rope.. meh

11/22/09
Rest day. Jump Rope, 10 push-ups, some stretching..
Meh.

I am really discouraged. Its ridiculous. My roll wont work. It just doesnt. I probably wont be able to do Parkour because of it. This sucks.

Well if you really can't get your roll, discard it for now. Work on your vaults and flow. Maybe one day you'll just try it, and it will work.
TIP: Try rolling with your left foot a little behind (if you use right shoulder), like a fighting stance, and roll on that. Works for me.

Hmm, it just happens sometimes. However there are some things you can try, from simply thinking happy thoughts to looking into vitamin D and it's affects on the brain and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). http://www.eatmoveimprove.com/2009/10/a-closer-look-at-vitamin-d/

Now I'm not saying Vitamin D WILL help with your mood, but it's definitely a possibility you could look into. It also has a myriad of other benefits that are fantastic aside from any mental effects.

There are times when you want to break down and rage at the heavens. Don't. Stay calm, and let the emotions flood in, accept them and then rise above them. Never dwell. Don't fear or worry. Anything worth thinking about is worth talking about. And... Good luck.

There's nothing wrong with your bone structure, Jeremy. :) Some people take very naturally to rolls, other people don't. I've been training for close to four years, and my rolls still aren't as good as I want them to be. It's probably the hardest skill to really get down completely right in parkour! Work on it every day and you'll get it eventually. Search for some of the old roll help threads - there's a lot of great information out there.

START HERE

REVIVED

I NEED TO GET BACK ON TRACK.
Let's get started.

DIET FIXES:
-No more soda. Water and Milk ONLY.
-No more eating junk food as snacks.
-Eat more fruits.
-Find some way to eat vegetables.

Now, onto my workout routine. I don't have access to weights. Body weight exercises are going to be my best friend. I will read the article from EMI. Goals first. What do I want to achieve? Handstands, L-Sits, Core strength, Mile times, Upper body strength. No, more specific on those last 2. I want my mile time to be at 6:00mins. or lower. I want to be able to be able to do a muscle up.

Handstands = Skill work. Will go to Beast Skills.
L-Sits = Progression. Will go to Beast Skills.
Core Strength = Built through L-Sit/Front Lever progressions.
Mile Time = Endurance. HIIT?
Muscle Up = Progressions. Pull-ups < Kipping Pull-ups < ???? < Muscle Up

AGENDA
Wall Assisted Handstands
Tucked L-Sits - Hold for 15-20 seconds. 2 Sets
Tucked Front Lever - Hold for 15- 20 seconds 2 Sets
Running - Will add when I find answer as to how to go about training for this.
Pull Ups - 5 Reps, 2 Sets.

I want to become more flexible as well... I also have NO idea where to start. If someone can help, would be much appreciated.

First Day of the Training Routine.

Man, have I got work to do.

-I just looked, and I honestly don't have an open wall in my room to practice with. Looks like dry days will be when I'll get to practice this
-8 out of 10 Pull-Ups
-I got the Front Lever
-I only was able to complete 11 seconds of the Tucked L-Sit.
I finished all the Push-Ups
I did a lot of the stretching, and wow that feels pretty good! Thank you Alissa! :D

One of your later entries said you don't have access to weights but if that ever changes...

To learn more about weight lifting you may want to buy a book such as Schwarzenegger's Encyclopedia of Body Building.

A few free sources are:
http://thetrainingstationinc.com/exercises.html
http://www.bodybuilding.com

The best source on stretching I've ever seen is this:
http://www.cmcrossroads.com/bradapp/docs/rec/stretching/stretching_1.html


I can't help you much in regards of running but this has helped the functionality of my legs:
