Movement / Is this a move yet?
« on: January 13, 2012, 09:24:32 AM »
So I was thinking the other day, about a vault idea. I was wondering if it was real or not, or if I actually thought of something new. It runs the same as a one handed vault or a lazy vault, except while in mid-air, you spin in a barrel roll like fashion. If the left hand is being used for the vault, the direction of the spin will be clockwise if looking down on the head from above (sideways direction thing. so you are looking along a line that would run from the top of the head to the feet). If i can pull one off i'll upload a video.

Parkour And Freerunning / Capstone ideas
« on: January 13, 2012, 09:20:50 AM »
So, next year (my senior year) I will have to do a project. I want it to be parkour related, but am somewhat torn between two ideas, and could am always open to new ideas. SO, what do you guys think? My current two ideas are to switch to a Paleo Diet fro 3-6 months (and maybe for forever) or make my own parkour shoes/outfit? Do you guys have any other/better ideas?

Colorado / Calling all broomfield/westminster traceurs!
« on: January 14, 2011, 10:10:24 AM »
Hey all!
Here at Legacy High School we have a little parkour club every wednesday (its unofficial though) and we want to "expand"
we meet at the park at 128th and zuni (about their) around 1:30 almost every wednesday. anyone can come! we play about 3 hours of tag, but be warned, on occasion, parents will ask that we stop/leave/avoid their children, so if they do, we'll go to another park.

Peace!

Consumer Whores / Power Balance Wristbands
« on: April 05, 2010, 07:59:47 AM »
I am doing a research paper and was wondering what you guys know about the power balance. if you know nothing, it is a wristband that is supposed to increase strength, balance, and flexibility. if you have had any experiences with these, or know someone who has, please refer them to here. i have heard both sides of the  argument and have even contacted a proffesional Cymaticologist (?) because that is how they are supposed to work. he has yet to get back to me, but i was wondering who had any kind of experience.
Thanks

Consumer Whores / Dickies
« on: January 22, 2010, 09:34:15 AM »
I have a pair of Dickies Saturns and use them for parkour outside of the gym. I won't lie, they're terrible. i have had them for about 4 months and have been using them for parkour and everyday life. i know that will wear them out faster, but they weren't very good to begin with.

Grip:2/10
Terrible and wears out super fast.
Cushion:5/10
Its there, but not very noticable.
Comfort:7/10
Comfortable, but a little tight
Durability:4/10
4 months and the heel is nearly gone.
Breathability:7/10
they vent ok, but not as good as some shoes.
Overall:4/10
sub-par and not reccomended :P
