Holy shnikeys!  I wish this existed when I first got into parkour.  I'm totally in now.  I'm Joshua, I weight 295 lbs. and I'm 5' 7" and I've done a speed vault but the obstacle was small... wait... there was the couch too!
All the days I fight the urge to eat bad, fattening food will be for nothing, a sacrifice in vain, if I give in the urge today.  Fight the urge, be free.

Guess I should be introducing myself here!

Name's Darek, I live around Denver, CO. Only been training a few months but I'm diggin it! 6' 215 lbs. My only jam buddies are considerably smaller than me..6' 175 and 5'5'' 130, so it should be nice to be able to talk to some other big folk who can possibly relate to some of the same problems I'm experiencing.

I'm 5 foot 9 inches, and weigh around 205. The heaviest I've ever been is about 248.



I did my first (I think) cartwheel yesterday.

Time to introduce myself then...

My name is Krista and I'm a 21 year old Psychology Major at Middle Tennessee State University. I'm not a guy, lol, but I'm a larger girl wanting to get into this. I have NEVER done this before... but I've been fascinated with it for nearly two years and decided to start working towards it. Baby steps are key, I understand this.

I do some aerobic dance and exercises every day, and stretching too. Lately I've been really sore (I slacked off for a while)... but now that I've quite the medical weight loss program with my doctor (too expensive and I realized relying on appetite suppressants wasn't going to work forever), I decided to work on my own. I hit my weight loss plateau though, and am terribly ashamed to say I'm currently stuck at 185 lbs while stacked into a 5'3'' frame. I wear my weight well and no one assumes I need to lose 70 pounds though.

I don't really have an interesting story... so I'll just leave it here for now. Thanks for reading~ I look forward to hearing what you guys have to say!
Whenever you do something you have never done before, no matter how poorly you do it, it turns out that you are on your way to doing it better the next time.

Welcome.


And honestly, just do your thing to condition and get stronger, it all comes with time. Bodybuilding is what really helped me with tricking and parkour and its training methods are completely unrelated. If you a plan right now follow it. Just don't stop.

Welcome to the Gorilla section guys n girls. I just want to say that Kyle is spot on with his information. Don't stop! I'm sitting at a hefty 245lbs and losing. I was at 265 2 months ago. The key is to NEVER quit at it. There have been days where I was sooo close to callin it off, but I grit my teeth and did it. 2 months later, I'm glad I kept goin. Also, you aren't alone.

Hey guys, i'm new here, figure i fit into this section, i'm 5'7" 210lbs and dropping, 27 years old and trying to get back into shape and this seems like the most fun way to do it. Struggling to keep to a routine of working out along with my wife, but having trouble doing so. The plan was 3 days a week either running at the park or working out in the gym at our apartment complex depending on the weather and planning to do a nature run once every weekend. we've been off and on on this schedule for a couple months, but trying harder to make it a reality. We finally decided on solid goals a few days back and mine are

1. be able to run 2 miles without having to stop and walk
2. be able to run 1 1/2 miles in under 12 minutes (ex- air force dude here)
2. be able to do 25 pullups (hardest of the goals for me)
3. 100 pushups consecutively
4. 50 situps consecutively
5. lose at least 30 pounds.

once i reach those goals I'll set new ones, but these are realistic enough considering i have done all of these minus the pullups before while i was in the air force, could only do about 5 then when i was in tip top shape. can't even do one full pull up right now, working on weight machine doing pull downs until i get near enough that i can do an actual unassisted pull up then doing pullups daily until i can do them with ease.
