Get to the doc. I have had migraines since I was nine. There is always, ALWAYS a reason a migraine happens. So get to the doctor to make  sure its not a tumor, then work on figuring out why you get them.

Dude. Don't ya have insurance?

I think most doctors are underpaid. I mean think about it. They're saving lives. Yet a pro football player gets millions a year to play a game.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Am I too old/big to do this?
« on: August 25, 2012, 07:05:55 AM »
I'm 35 yo. I've been  working on this for a couple years. And its great. True I haven't progressed like a 15 year old would but that's more because of work and kids and house and cars. Not because of my age.

And I agree with Will. The younger crowd has had the internet to be exposed to Parkour. When I  was 15 the internet was barely even a toy. It was a bigger pain in the ass to get on then it  was worth and there was no videos up on it. So unless you knew someone that practiced, we had no intro to it.

So I say get out and train. Don't let ANYTHING stop you!

Age 30+ / Re: Where is the 50 & over forum?!
« on: July 28, 2012, 06:47:39 AM »
Hey Max. Don't you know 50 is too old for this? Ha. Just kidding. Its awesome. And very good working out with your son.

I love it when  a person is doing what the norm says they're not  suppose to be doing based  on a stupid number.

I work with a guy who, by the way he acted,  I could of sworn was pushing 70. But  came to find out he just turned 55. Just sad.

Anyways. Glad you're here.

Movement / Re: Excercises to get to handstand

I like to put my hands down and kick my legs up to the wall. But whatever works for you.

In my opinion best way is to just  keep working on handstands. Up against the wall. Work  on lifting your feet off the wall. And throw in some handstand push uups.

Yeah. If my 7 year old daughter keeps at it. By the time she's my age she'll be the best around.

I'm not even sure I remember being 21.

This is a funny thought. When I graduated high school. My school did not have internet yet. Yikes.

You don't need to be motivated to go out and train.  You just need to go out and train. 

Talk to any long-term practitioner of any pursuit and they will tell you that there were hundreds of times when they lacked motivation but they got out there and did it anyway.

I agree with Joe. Set smaller goals and write it all down so you can keep track of what you've done.

But I also believe that if a person doesn't enjoy what they're doing anymore, might be time to move on.

Not saying give up, but maybe change it.

I think we need to enjoy what we're doing or our hearts won't be in it enough to really  succeed.

As Joe said. Stop doing it.

I. Read on your other posts that you're new to Parkour. Jumping off a 5 foot wall already is no bueno.

Go for a run.
Yoga.
Lift weights.
Get a big tire and sledge hammer and beat the hell out of it.
Buy an air cooled VW.

Just a quick few things that popped in my head

Being a good example is really the best way to show them. Being a father of two I've learned that. Example is the best way.
