Hey Sebastian,
Great to have you on board, like the video, particularly the wall run into handstand.

Never really considered myself an old timer, I think I prefer veteran. The way I see it is if these youngsters keep training in 10 years this will be the busiest spot on the forum.

Hey anarcyman, good to know that there are more of us out there, perhaps this would be better as an over 40's forum, I'm 42.

Hey Austin
Wouldn't worry to much about your day off, I read through your training log and you seem to be doing really well, and 1 beer and 3 rums, not really splurging too much.Good job buddy.

 I've been dieing to try those jumping stilts, but there kinda expensive(around $150-$300), are they worth the money? if i do get them what brand and model should i get.

In my opinion their worth the money, I paid about £150 for mine from Pro-Jump uk, that's less than most of my longboard skate set ups and their a really well made piece of kit, just make sure you get the correct ones for your weight.

Hi,  introduced myself over in the over 30 section but it's pretty quiet over there so figured I'd say hello here as well.

I've had the pleasure of training with some of the best mixed martial artists in the business, even got one of my former pupils in The Ultimate Fighter house now but due to the time constraints this caused my contact with any trceurs has been few and far between, I believe when most people hit our age work and family take precedence and they get caught up in what they should be doing not what they would like to be doing, afraid to look outside the box for fear of what others might say, constrained by society and the medias conception of fitness, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds"

Hey Wave?, saw your video, good job, maybe if we don't give into the norm and start posting we can liven this up a bit.

Cool video, went through Amsredam a few years back on Queens day, it was madness.

My wife started trainig with me as the all round fitness appealed to her, she wasn't to happy about practicing in public so I built a box jump, vault and rail so we could practice around the garden, now when we're out I see her eyeing up rails and gap jumps so it's only a matter of time. My son is happy to try it all and although we live in a small town where the locals aren't to happy about you climbing around their walls we have some great forests to run through and a stream next to our house that he loves to compete with me to jump over, I've got to pretend to lose and fall in or he's not happy.

I know how much family and a new home take out of you, I emigrated from England to Austria three years ago with my family. I've now managed to get my wife and eleven year old son joining in the workout of the day with me, which would be fun other than the "I've got to do what now !!!?" comments.

Hey guys

Great forum and nice to see a spot for us older guys, I turned 42 this year. Like many of you on here I've spent most of my life active, started as a trampolinist when I was a kid then got into martial arts in my teens competing in kickboxing. Spent the next 20 years teaching kickboxing, wrestling and MMA, had my own full-time academy for 12 years or so but got tired of fighting every day and needed a change so 3 years ago I sold up and moved out to Austria with my family. We bought a guesthouse so we've spent the last 3 years getting the business up and running, still been training, mostly hand balancing and gymnastic strength work and skiing through the winters, the trouble with Austria is they seem to live on beer, schnapps and sausage. Finally got everything running smoothly and got the diet back on track and was looking for something to get my heart racing and put some fun back into my workouts, always enjoyed climbing up things and jumping over things so decided to give parkour a go, now I've got a new lease of life back in my training and look forward to getting up each day and larking about. Looking forward to where this year will take me and enjoying the journey.
