Movement / Re: Different roll
« on: September 24, 2015, 01:16:10 PM »
Ok I know its been a pretty long time since I've posted this and this was probably the last post I've made on this forum, but I thought its worth saying that I have gotten a lot better at the side roll and parkour in general. Dear anyone who is having trouble with the "simple" stuff like rolling, just keep working at it and eventually you'll be able to roll on cement relatively easily and painlessly.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Wrapping hands
« on: May 19, 2015, 07:56:05 AM »
I first tried out kevlar sleeves 2 weeks ago and I have used them when I train since. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0035X8L96/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I bought them to protect my elbows from scrapes during a clime-up, but they protect a bit of your palm. I usually don't use gloves, but I did find some really cheap ones that I actually like, but only for climbing up wooden stuff.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Parkour or Freerunning?
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:36:23 AM »
Personally I don't care what its called. The only time that I refer to it as parkour/freerunning is when I type it in the search bar. Im interested the usefulness and flow of it. Getting from one place to another using the fastest route, whether that be running on a flat sidewalk or scaling a building.

Pics & Vids / Monkeys movement
« on: April 15, 2015, 06:51:24 AM »
I saw a documentary on monkeys the other day noticed that their movements are basically parkour on hands and feet. Honestly it was the only reason I kept watching. But I started looking up videos of monkeys and this one caught my attention more than the others.<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8Gfd2vCtp8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8Gfd2vCtp8</a>

I havent watched it with sound yet so Im not sure if theres a narration or if its in english.

Movement / Re: Wall run and climb trouble...

Theres different clime-up techniques and I'm not sure I use the best one, but I get into the cat position and act like its a dino without moving my hands. If the wall is thin enough make sure that your fingers can feel the other side if that makes sense.

Is the wall like a stone fence? Or is it part of a building?

You don't want to train in jeans. Really. You don't.

Sometimes when I don't have any clean sweatpants I train in these jeans I have that are really baggy or cargo pants. Sweatpants work the best but it dosent feel that bad to train in these. As long as there not restrictive I don't mind.

Movement / Re: Roll issue?
« on: March 16, 2015, 12:25:27 PM »
During a workout, blood accumulates around your mussels to provide them with more oxygen. When your mussels contract, they help push the blood back to the heart and lungs where it can be oxygenated again. But when you stop moving and contracting the mussels, they don't push the help push the blood back to your heart and leaves your brain with a shortage of oxygenated blood, which may result in dizziness and sometimes fainting. This is called the "second heart theory". Its probably not going to happen after one roll, but i suppose its possible.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: What am I???
« on: March 11, 2015, 12:35:27 PM »
Why should it matter what you are called? If someone asks me what I do for fun, I say I am a freerunner because its easier to explain and pronounce than traceur. But I agree with Tim and Mr.Curly

I agree with Neken. I don't have snapchat anymore because my old phone broke (I rolled a bit to hard on it ;D) and now I have a phone that cant connect to internet

Injuries - Discussion / Re: Rolled my ankle awhile back...
« on: March 11, 2015, 08:09:56 AM »
A experienced traceur I know told me a story of how he rolled his ankle, and after a day it didn't hurt so much. He decided to train that day and he broke his ankle after 2 precessions. I don't know if the ankle roll had anything to do with the broken ankle, but be careful anyways.

Welcome! / Re: Parkour on its fundamental
« on: March 09, 2015, 10:07:56 AM »
I have a big pile of cut grass in my yard I practice flips over. If you have grass to mow, just put in in a pile and after a week or two you'll have a nice cushion.

Looks very professional. Makes me wish there was a parkour school in my town

I just did my first "perfect" roll in a while. It felt good to walk away without any shoulder pain. Still needs some work though.

When I get the chance I'm gonna try and increase my forward momentum and try twisting my upper body more. I haven't had the problem of my hip bone getting in the way though.
