Injuries - Discussion / Lower left ab pain from back flips
« on: October 20, 2014, 06:10:46 AM »
So I started doing back flips a few months ago. When I was learning them, they were hurting my lower left abdominal area pretty badly. So I would take a few days off and go back to em, but the same pain persisted. Now I do em outside all the time and they still kill me. It hurts when I tighten my abs, bend back, cough, and sneeze. I don't think its a hernia, but it hurts. Nothing seems to make it better.

Parkour And Freerunning / Can't see anything when flipping
« on: October 07, 2014, 06:30:22 PM »
Ok so I know that with flips you are supposed to spot your landing so you know when to untuck. The probkem is though, is that no matter the flip, I can't see anything. I know my eyes are open cause I've slowed down a a video of me back flipping and my eyes are open just fine, but I just can't see anything. Same with my side flip. I usually just untuck when I think is right. Just by feel I guess. Any tips?

Freerunning / Gather step vs punch
« on: September 06, 2014, 06:22:23 PM »
Ok so I can do both punch fronts and punch sides rather well.  Today I watched a video that talked about doing a "gather step" rather than a punch.  The guy doing it seemed to get just as high as normal while getting more distance and supposedly being safer.  Any of y'all have any experience with this technique?  Can you actually get as high/higher with this or is this guy just awesome?  I really like how it seems like you can be running and just do it without have to stop all your momentum.

Parkour And Freerunning / Left calf pain when doing side flips
« on: August 18, 2014, 02:56:53 PM »
Okey dokey so I've been able to side flip outside for about a month now, so any chance I get I'm usually always throwing em just for fun or while training. The problem is however, whenever I so about 5+ my left calf starts hurting. If you flex your calf and grab it with your left hand, it's the part that sticks out the most on the left side that seems to be hurting usually. It's not a terrible pain but it's rather annoying. I always warm up before I train and always stretch afterwards. I've rested for a while and came back to it but when I do, it still hurts after I do a few side flips. Both of my feet are taking off and landing at the same time. So idk. Any help would be appreciated. I just don't wanna hurt myself more. Thanks.
