100K Threads / 10,000 Muscle-ups
« on: March 13, 2011, 08:20:36 PM »
I was inspired by the 1,000 Muscle-up challenge PKGenerations did a bit back:
http://blane-parkour.blogspot.com/2010/12/1000-muscle-ups.html

and Blane's challenge a couple weeks back:
http://www.parkourgenerations.com/challenge/30-muscle-ups-time

I figure if we can have 100,000 pull-up and push-up threads why not 10,000 Muscle-ups?

I'll start with what little i did this past week:

Hi there, me and a few friends wanted to start training for parkour/freerunning. we would like to know more about it.

Well what would you like to know?  I could tell you everything, but that would take time and pages.
If you want all the info, i'd suggest coming to one of the meet-ups and talking to me: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=81230653088

Nebraska / Nebraska Parkour (Omaha)
« on: August 27, 2010, 07:46:18 AM »
For a while now Omaha has had a pretty decent group going.  I've neglected posting anything up on APK, but here it is now:
http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/group.php?gid=81230653088&ref=ts

Omaha Parkour is for all traceurs in the Omaha area who just want to connect and meetup for learning, conditioning, training, circuits, and runs.

The purpose of parkour is to overcome obstacles in ones own path as fast and effectively as possible. Emphasizing freedom of movement and creativity, it is seen as an art, discipline, and philosophy; way of life.

If you are new to the discipline or just have an interest feel free to join and check out some of the links below. Youtube is a great resource, whether your looking to study form and flow or to find tips, training exercises, inspiration, and motivation.

Parkour/Freerunning requires a lot of discipline, and it also requires you to be safe and controlled; not fearing heights, but respecting them; understanding where your limits lie and where you can push them.  Bottom line, be safe, and don't try anything unless you are 110% confident in your ability.

Useful Links:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRSOe-rDa9Y  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxaAzLdhKxU

As of this week we have 3 weekly meetups:
Wednesday Workouts in downtown Omaha 5:00-7:00 (physical and mental conditioning)
Premier Gymnastics open gyms on Fridays 7:00-8:30 (to practice new movements in safe environment)
Downtown Meetups every Saturday 1:00-4:00 (for every level, just a relaxed fun training session)
(More details are on our facebook group)

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: APK Magazine
« on: July 10, 2009, 02:41:36 PM »
Some great Ideas here you guys, and good insight Mitchell and Zachery.  From you two I’ve gathered that it needs to have all of the latest and future events/stories while giving sections a timeless quality different than what can be found on the internet. 

Here is what else I’ve been able to piece together:  I includes a summation most(if not all) of the ideas posted.
"Information that would be useful to its readers"   "epic idea" 

Content

Highlights and interviews of different traceurs (famous/known, maybe unknown) to see what they do "A Day in the Life of..." 
Warm-ups, exercises, conditioning, training methods, moves, drills, etc...    (Demon's Drills section)
Featured traceur/traceuse, Movement of the month, forgotten movements, tips and tricks
Tutorials of such showing 6 progressive frames on one page to demonstrate the motion involved (with text of course)
Local and international parkour news/events and stories, headlining what's taking place in the community
Calendar listing the biggest jams, and special events in different regions of the US, and maybe the world
Philosophy, psychology, physics/science, sports, travel, and history surrounding parkour/freerunning and its development
Perhaps every once and a while an issue specifically dedicated to certain subjects i.e. tutorials

Inspiration

Other sports magazines to look at the set-up
To base it similarly off of the APK site
Local and/or international focuses

Funding

No shortage of subscribers with some 65,000 members on APK, not to mention all of the Traceurs/Freerunners that aren't on APK
Get companies (i.e. Nike or Adidas) to pay for advertisements/reviews of their brands/items/equipment
Generous donors
Merchandise sales
American Parkour itself (obviously) etc

Pricing

Can't be too expensive to start out so that people are interested
Create a special offer or likewise

Other positives

Might get more people into the discipline
Increase APK membership/publicity
Earn more respect for the discipline

Extras

There should be a poll to see how many people would buy it. (needing to account for whether or not some people see the pole)
print content in the magazine first, then post it for free online a week or so later.
Use special codes to give subscribers benefits at the APK site, like wallpapers, limited access videos and behind the scenes, etc.

Freerunner & Internet vs A Physical Magazine

"Whatever happened to The Freerunner?"  "It still comes out every month" 
Here is the link http://freerunnermag.net/live/ I checked it out and it looks great, but it's limited to the internet/computers. 
Point being not everyone has a computer, a magazine is more portable, reads better, and might have knowledge specific to the magazine.  Check out Mitchell Lewis' comments for other reasons.
"Quality. As bad as this might sound, printed stories tend to have more weight than internet stories. They tend to be more thought out, more thorough, and more informative." "Portability and Coverage"

Other people mentioned how it might help them not be so attached to and distracted by the internet.
"i need to quit spending so much time on here and more time outside training!! lol"

Other Points

"I could read it at school during down time"
"It would give me incentive to spread the word if I could just open it to the Philosophy section and just say, here read this"
"Currently the new APK Calender is cluttered and hard to read."
"THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL IDEA! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN"
I'm going to do what I can.  More feedback people?  So far it's all sounding good to me. :)

Now I just want to hear about what APK thinks about it.

Parkour And Freerunning / APK Magazine
« on: July 06, 2009, 10:27:59 PM »
I was thinking that it would be a great idea if APK came out with a quarterly magazine highlighting different traceurs, excersizes, training methods, philosophies etc...  Taking inspiration from different magazines like "6 frames"(to show the motion), and other sports magazines for the set-up/inspiration; based off the site, with local and/or international focuses.

Simply enough just seeing what others think:  Whould you buy it?  What would you want to see in it?  just throw some ideas out there.  I had done some research and just found it interesting that there aren't too many publications concerning parkour/freerunning (putting it lightly)  Who knows,,,it could even be a chance to create more of a positive public view of the 2 disciplines.

Tell me what you think. That's just my take on it. :)

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: How long did it take you to get "good"?
« on: July 06, 2009, 09:51:45 PM »
I'm not sure if you could call me good by any means yet, but from the looks of things you seem to be getting caught up in the idea that it is solely through time and effort that you make progress.  3 thing that I always try to do really help:
1 - focus on what you're doing. don't overthink it, but dont be completely mindless either.
2 - observe whats happening when either you mess up or have bad fluidity.  Sometimes you just need to break down the individual movements to see what's wrong (a video camera / watching other peoples vids might help in this)
3 - experiment with different ways of performing the different movements to solve your problems, try new places, be creative, and just have fun.

hope this method helps, I'de like to hear what else your trying.
but the definition of a "good" traceur/freerunner is a bit ambiguous.  I hope you have fun man, just keep it up.
A person can always improve.
