i understand doing squats to condition the legs against the pressures of gravity, but can you advise a certain type of leg position?  i had this dilemma last night and ended up with the conclusion that i can push myself forward from any jump under 5 feet or so.  however, i'm not sure if i should roll at such a low height.  i don't need to take the pressure off of my knees, but it's the only way i can think of keeping my forward momentum, unlike bending my knees, where my only option is to try to spring myself upward, land, then resume running.  solution, please?

To preserve momentum without doing a roll, I just use a cat landing-like technique. Basically landing like normal, but move forward a little and stabilize with your hands, then push youself forwards with your legs as you take your hands off the ground. It's simple, easy to master, and I swear it has saved my life once or twice. I usually only roll on grass or packed rubber and if I have too much forward momentum to land in a cat style landing.

so is doing squats the only way to improve leg muscle? cause my legs arnt very strong (im a girl)

A girl who does parkour, some might find that kinda hot. Just sayin'. Anyways, you can do squats to build leg strength, you can run until your legs give-out (like I do), or you can practice balancing on rails and walking along them for a suspended period of time (also something I do near daily).

And now a reply to this thread itself; I bend my knees past 90 degrees if I feel it is necessary. Usually, I just bend my knees until I feel the schock of the landing has been absorbed, then I continue with my parkour path. Just to save time and to avoid hitting the ground with my back-yard or hitting my chin on my knee (both hurt very much. Believe me. =/). If I feel I have to bend my knees past about 50-45 degrees, I just land like a cat and absorb shock with my arms too, but it's usually not necessary. For me, anyways. Your style may be different from mine. =)
Have fun and screw gravity. ;D

Hey, brosauce.  You just quoted people from 2008 and January 2010.

I would imagine that your advice is well appreciated, but I would figure that these particular people have long since come to grips with their own answers. :)

I definitely bend my knees more than 90 degrees when I drop from a medium height. If I'm dropping from high enough that I want to roll it out afterward, I put my weight a little more forward so rather than

land. Then roll.

The way I land drops me forward directly into the roll. It's one smooth motion, no pause or re-aligning in between.

While you be part of songs in iTunes, the songs play together - one after the opposite - even when you've shuffled all the songs on your record. Moreover, the songs always journey together, which means that if you load one of the songs to one in every of your Apple units, you additionally routinely load the opposite track.

    • Convertir Un Wma En Mp3 Avec Free Mp3 Wma Converter

Les fichiers musicaux au format WMA ont ceci d'emb?tant qu'ils ne sont pas lisibles par tous les lecteurs, notamment sur iTunes , ni m?me par la totalit? des baladeurs num?riques.  Si au lieu de stocker ces 10 points, on en stocke 1 seul et le nombre de fois o? il se r?p?te, on a besoin de coder 2 nombres et non 10. Si, de plus, on applique cette m?thode ? des fr?quences non plus identiques mais tr?s proches les unes des autres (si proches que l'oreille humaine moyenne ne puisse les distinguer), on peut encore gagner en place.
Alors moi jte propose official vid?o converter que j'ai d?ja conseill? a un autre forumeur et qui en est ravi !! Vous pouvez couper une chanson ? plusieurs segments et les fusionner dans un fichier audio complet en fonction de vos besoins. Et j'ai grav? tous les wave sur un CD pour pouvoir les ?couter sur une cha?ne de qualit? (avec convertisseur externe ? la platine CD, enceintes de qualit?...). Tout est donc effectu? dans la m?me fen?tre, et la conversion se r?alise en quelques clics avec une s?curit? remarquable.
Avec la qualit? maximale la plus commune, en 320 kbps, le rendu est toutefois correct, avec un respect acceptable des timbres, de la section et de la pr?cision g?n?rale du morceau. LitexMedia: De Free WMA to MP3 Changer est le logiciel con?u pour vous aider si vous devez convertir des dossiers de m?dias de Windows en format MP3. Le fonctionnement est tr?s easy, automobile il suffit d'importer les fichiers, s?lectionner le format de sortie et commencer ? convertir. C'?tait sans compter la t?nacit? de Microsoft qui s'acharne ? proposer le format WMA (Home windows Media Audio), support? ?videmment en commonplace sous Windows XP. Voici donc quelques pistes pour que vous puissiez vous y retrouver dans la jungle des formats audio. C'est un format de plus en plus r?pandu, soutenu par Apple lisible sur Mac et PC.
En ce mois de juin 2008, nous en sommes ? la model 1.7.three. Elle permet de convertir tous vos fichiers Mp3, Wma, Ogg, AAC, m4a, mp4, Ape, flac, Wav. Voila tout est dans le titre j'utilisais Cdex avant pour convertir des Cd en MP3 et les Wav en MP3 et vice-verca. Certains sp?cialistes voient le AAC comme le successeur du MP3 (format ancien et d?pass?). Lorsque votre r?seau est en mauvais ?tat, il sera tr?s g?nant et ennuyeux de convertir MP3 en WMA en ligne. Free Mp3 Wma Converter est un convertisseur audio facile ? utiliser pour passer des fichiers d'un format ? un autre. Cela signifie qu'un fichier MP3 ne contient pas a hundred mp3 en wma ripper% des donn?es audio d'origine. Dans la section musicale, vous trouverez tous les fichiers WMA que vous avez ajout?s ? la biblioth?que. CDDB est une base de donn?es gratuite en ligne qui contient l'info sur presque tous les albums de musique sortis.
Le however n'est pas de r?-encoder un MP3 en FLAC, mais de tromper le firmware pour lire les MP3 sur les lecteurs OPPO qui ne lisaient pas le MP3. Windows Media Player permet la lecture des CD audio, des fichiers MP3 et WMA et la visualisation de fichiers vid?o. Une fois le CD ouvert dans le Lecteur Home windows Media, il est doable de configurer plusieurs param?tres de conversion. Appuyez sur ? D?marrer ?. Une fois tous les param?tres fix?s, cliquez sur la fl?che verte, en haut ? droite, marqu?e ? D?marrer ?. Le processus de conversion est lanc?. En effet, si vous avez eu le malheur d'investir dans un baladeur audio il y a moins d'un an, il y a de fortes chances mp3 to wma en ligne pour qu'il n'accepte que le format MP3 et tous vos enregistrements faits sous Home windows XP en WMA sont inexploitables.
