Recently me and my friend invented a little "game" (we didn't start yet)

i was gonna start carrying a notebook with me to my training.
in it i would put how many vaults, push ups, sit ups, and all my records in it.
me and him made up little clever names for "achievements" like on xbox360 (lol) we only made a few.
whenever we reached this "achievement" we would add it to our personal list of achievements.
we would just keep adding achievements to our list.
its alll based on an honesty system though but we trust each other.

so i wanted to know who wants to play along ?^_^
post some achievements and try to succeed them.
here are some stupid names of achievements me and my friends made

(pushup king) -
do 150 pushups straight

(pushup master) -
do 200 pushups straight

(<vault name> vault trainer) -
 do 500<vault name> vaults (not in 1 traning session, just 500 vaults ever)

(<vault name> vault rookie) -
do 50<vault name> vaults (same as above)

(tag you're it) - win 10 games of parkour-tag



in the book you write, achievements earned, logs of everything like, date and time and what you did, your alltime records etc. etc.
then in another book list achivements you can earn... or ill keep them in this post :)

lol, mind if we add to the list of achievements?

This sounds like a good way to inspire people to drill things (Because... we all know...  Drilling the same thing over and over can get very boring...)

Someone should add something on the roll, like: "It's how I roll"- Mastered the parkour roll.

lol Jon, you pretty much named all of the ones I was gonna call out...

3-Steppin (Pun of 2-Steppin) - Get three steps on a wall (Horizontal OR Vertical)

Jolly Springer - Use something as a spring board to clear an obstacle

Shutter Stutter - Accidentally catch a Stutter Step on camera  (Obviously easy lol!)

SMG - Machine Gun a move for at least 30 seconds straight (Machine Gunning is basically, as soon as you get done with the move, do it again over the same obstacle...  trust me, after a while, you notice your weaknesses, fix them, get dead tired, then do it about 17 more times and just give up...)

Demon Hunter - Perform at least 3 of Demon's Drills

Turn Tables - Perform a palm spin on a table (With permission of course)

Ohh! Something that I accidentally did today!  I was going to double kong something and realized that I didn't have quite enough speed, so I did the first kong and then Caught the second one (First time that I have stalled a Kong into a hand stand)

So

Stall - Chain a vault into a handstand

and why haven't we done the ones from Mirror's Edge yet? XD

Over Under Through - Vault an obstacle to an under-bar to a dive roll
