Exercise recreation

I am going to recreate my exercise plan. Instead of two stupid half-ass workouts, I will be doing one workout in the middle of each afternoon. I will still be upping my sit-ups, push ups, and squats by ten every week. Wednesdays will still be rest days. Weekends are still technique enhancement. I am adding chin-ups to the mandatory list. Upping chin ups by two every week.

My workout will become scheduled and consistent.

It will go in the order:
10 push-ups
10 sit-ups
10 squats
2 chin-ups

This cycle will continue until my quota for reps is completed each week.

This starts Monday.

30 elevated push ups
30 elevated sit ups
3 kipping pull ups

I decided to go out late at night and walk barefoot along the road about a half mile. after I lost all feeling in my feet I broke into a run and went back home. My feet began to heat and pins and needles occurred, but I ran the whole way back. So I worked on endurance and killing the pain receptors in my feet.

worked on vaults rolls and kongs
changed my technique on the roll based on the roll of david
learned that benches are hard to vault and kong

1/4 mile run followed by precision training; Can now land jumps to rails without fear of hurting myself.

For Tony, I am trying to become toned with lean muscle. I have heard some about how to do it and am doing my best to work towards this goal. I enjoy being a skinny guy who can run a mile in 6:45, but I want to be even  better.

Worked on rolls; think I was having a bad day and messed up mostly all of them
Worked on Turn vaults; need more room to turn
Worked on rolling on concrete; went from grass to soft wood to hard wood to concrete; hurt a little
Worked on wall climb; not really but I found a place where I did two or three

We have a whole section of this forum dedicated to phoenix. you should probably post this over there.
Also, for future reference, we are called traceurs not parkourists.

here's the link to the Arizona link on this forum.,12.0.html

I retract my vote on this topic.

Anybody can be as good as anybody else. If one person has a "natural ability", then they have a small advantage over the people who don't, but that just means the other people need to train a little bit more to be as good.

P.S.: I do not believe natural ability exists. A person either inherited it through hereditary means or they were practicing without knowing they were practicing before they started practicing.

I know I said that Wednesday was rest day, but I decided I haven't trained enough.

Did another 1/4 mile run, then worked on precisions onto rails. I have an irrational fear of thin landing space. I worked on my wall climbs, rolls, and vaults. Had my first fail on a rail ever. Very humbling experience.

Quick question. I do two sets of ten for each of the exercises, one in the morning and one at night. Would it be better to do the sets together or apart? Keep in mind I will be doing twenty reps a set in two weeks.


20 elevated push ups
20 crunches
20 squats
2x3 kipping pull ups
No run

Alright man welcome to the forums!

It's a great place to learn a lot about technique and ask some really good traceurs whatever you are confused about.

Thought I might as well start a training log if I want to get serious about this.

This is my very first week of training. I plan to increase the number of reps I do for the bodybuilding stuff by ten each week on Mondays. Weekends are light training and technique enhancement. Wednesdays are rest days.

My Goals:
20 chin-ups without tiring
Perfect the turn vault
Hold a handstand for a full minute
Be able to top out over a wall from cat hang in three seconds
50 push-ups without tiring
20 L-sit dips without tiring or touching the floor


20 elevated push-ups
20 squats
20 sit-ups
2 Kipping chin-ups


20 elevated push-ups
20 squats
20 sit ups
Light stretches ten minutes
1/4 mile run
2 Kipping chin-ups

Try to find a rail on flat ground on both sides. there should be no indents or outdents on either side. The rail should be about waist high. That would be the most amazing place to train vaults for a beginner.

Look on the apk website under the how do I start parkour tab. Lots of good breakdowns on the vaults most commonly used in there.
Here's the link to that page

I was actually asking what kind of things don't hurt as much to faceplant into than a picnic table
