Washington / New to Tacoma

Hey guys! Just came up from Oregon and was wondering if anyone was from Tacoma or surrounding areas. I'm totally new to the area, and a total nooby for parkour, and it'd be cool to have some locals to train with and get started.

Oregon / Any Mid-Valley Traceurs?

I live down in Lebanon. Anyone around that's closer than Eugene or Portland? I'd like to get out and jam or train with a few people and get to know some locals before I ship out. That won't be for a few months at least, but still.

Training Journals / Dallas' 365/52 Journal: Input Welcome

Well, I figure what better way to start off the new year right? Now, please note, I'm going to be leaving for the Navy here within the next few months, so If a few posts get missed, I'll keep a hard-copy of the journal and update it as soon as I can.

So! Here goes...

Day 1

Still fighting the tale end of a cold, and I haven't been doing a whole lot of serious working out for over a year, so I'm going to be taking a fairly light.

1/2 APK Warm-Up

20 Push - Ups
20 Sit - Ups
10 Pull - Ups
2x60 (60 each side) Samson Stretches

I chose to start my work-out regiment on solely the APK Warm-Up routine. It's simple, I can do it almost anywhere, and It's fairly adaptable to someone who hasn't been working out on a regular basis (cough cough ::) ).

Also, planning on doing some vaulting or drop training. The sand filter for our septic system is extremely sturdy, and sits about 2 1/2 - 3 feet off the ground, so that's perfect for it. Also, the wall separating us and our neighbors is about 8 feet tall, so it's just tall enough for me to touch the ground while I'm standing next to it. I think I'll use that for shimmying and gripping practice, and dropping from a wall.  I learned how to roll properly in Taekwondo earlier in my child hood and could use some practice in that as well, but with the limited space, and soaking wet ground, I'll have to wait until I have the house to myself for a bit, or tough it out when I'm feeling a bit better and roll around in the mud.


Hot damn! I dunno if it's just cause I'm sick or what, but even that little bit of a work-out kicked my ass pretty good.

At the end of everything I managed:

Day 1

20 Push - Ups
20 Sit - Ups
15 Pull - Ups
10 "Row Boats" (taking a pilates tension cord, placed in arch of foot, and spread arms as far as possible)
20 Squats
30 Samson Stretches

I did 5 standing jumps from the ground onto the sand filter, which serves as my jumping platform, and spent about 15 minutes practicing my drops. No vaulting today, but I think I'm going to wait on the running until I get this cold taken care of. I also think that what I accomplished is going to be my daily regiment for week one, adding 5 to everything for week two, and so on and so forth until I get to around 45 or 50.

Diet / Fast Metabolism: Dietary Advice?
« on: January 03, 2012, 11:59:11 AM »
A little about myself before I post:

I am a 22 year old male, and weigh 135 lbs. While my family is all fairly skinny, and known to have over active metabolisms while we are still fairly young, I'd still like to try and put on a little weight and get my body fat levels up to a "healthy" level. As it stands, at the moment I have little to none. Now, I HAVE had my weight up to around 155 lbs. in the past, when I was working a full-time job as an Arborist (tree-trimmer for those who are unfamiliar with the term). This however, was like doing the APK warm-up once an hour, for 6-8 hours a day.

Since I've been laid off and found a new job, my weight has dropped dramatically, even though I still eat healthy diverse meals, and work out once or twice a week. My question is this: Is there a certain type of food or diet regiment I should look into to start gaining a little more weight to be back in the "healthy" range, or should I just keep at what I'm doing and hope for the best?
