You know you're a traceur if you measure distances in walls, drops and precisions.

I don't think I ever got around to doing that suicide mission... and between how lazy I am and how often I have been hanging out with people, I never even got around to doing the pushups thing.

New years resolution?
-do a planche
-learn to drive so I can go to Portland more often
-make a new video showing how much I improved.

What's yours, wolf?

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: I have an addiction

Addiction to Parkour is very serious.
If left alone, you may become very strong and attractive to the opposite gender. Other side effects include people being impressed with you, becoming popular, people thinking you're awesome and repeatedly being called inhuman.
With proper dosages of video games and fast food, you can overcome your addiction. It is a lonely road to recovery because nobody actually wants to get over their addiction ;D

I'm getting ack into training... sorta. Nightly pushups, ab work and flexibility workouts.

For my pushups, I'm going to do as many as I can in one set, count to 60 then do another set as high as I can go. I'll let you all know how that works out. I think I'll post those numbers once per week. I'll be mainly focussing on my lower abs since they aren't really there right now... just a bit of cosmetics =P

Also, I'm starting frog stands today. Working my way (slowly) to a planche.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Livewire's beastly handstand skills?
« on: December 24, 2010, 12:06:18 AM »
As much as I believe he trained hard to make up for a weakness, I do believe this is exaggerating. No one ever has to do handstands in order to do their every day activities, even if they have no legs, and I doubt this is WHY he learned handstands - as they wouldn't really help. What does he use to actually perform his every day activities? His ass cheeks?

Sorry. Just thought it was funny. Not trying to say that he isn't amazing. Simply saying that his injuries are a likely - and huge - motivator to learn handstands, but certainly was not out of necessity.

Don't be too quick to doubt. In his own words:
 "Well my knees are completely packed in so I've given up and began living life just on my arms and hands, its less painful :'(

Heres a insight into what I do in a normal day, and how I do it!"

I'm sure the video is a bit of an exaggeration, but it gets the point across.

Hi! Motivation is good.

I'm interested to see your progress. You've also motivated me to put planches in my long term goal.

My friend told me about doing 'negatives' for difficult things. Like for muscle ups, start at the top of the wall, and slowly lower yourself down in the opposite order of the way you would do it if you were pulling yourself up. It works the muscles through the same path, and is a pretty good workout if you do them right. They are EXTREMELY helpful. I got strong enough to do a real muscle up from where I was in about a week.

Train hard. Train safe. Stay humble.

He got impacted knees and couldn't walk. He had to use handstands to get around his house and to do his everyday activities. I think he had to do that for 6/8 months or something. Not too sure about the time. Fun stuff. He is beast now though, so it is okay.

Watching American Ninja Warrior. I want an indoor gym so bad. Some of these guys have BEAUTIFUL places to train. I got a new pair of Nike Darts. They look soo good. Got a 1 year warranty on them, so I can feel free to train my hardest and wear out the soles, then get a new pair next year.

I want to go traaaiiin :(

added planches to my goals list. Going to start with frog stands.

I'm gonna do that to the next person who tells me "I can do that easily" When clearly what they had just watched was a Damien Walters '09 show reel...

If there is anyone you know who thinks the stuff Damien Walters does is easy, you should punch them. Hard. In the cerebellum.

Balls man... I'll have to get back into the working out side of things. Okay, let me sum up the last few months.

I was in a musical again. Just like the summer show, I was too tired every day to train. As soon as that ended, the very next week, dive team started up again, which I am on. I am getting a lot better at flips and such.

I have a new training partner who is really good at vaults and pretty bad at wallclimbs. I'm hoping we can balance each other out and become mega pro.

Also, I got obsessed with this game Minecraft and I wasted a bunch of time with that before it got cold out. I haven't trained in a long time, but I am staying relatively active. I want it to be warmer out though. I'm kind of beating myself up....

Going to get back into a bi-nightly workout routine is though, despite being exhausted from dive team.

When you plan to wear something to homecoming that allows you to climb the wall out back which wont be heavily watched.

Boom.

I went training today finally. I took advantage of a few hours of sunlight drying things up. Played tag for a while. I went barefoot, and was feeling good about it. I am starting to get more confident without shoes. Did some muscle ups. The first two were much more fluid than before. I did 30 jumps to the 5th museum stair, and over half of them, I landed with my heels on the step. I don't know why, but after this long break I feel a little better at everything.

It was a good day that I hope is the beginning of more improvement.

I remember my first kong ;D

Congratulations.

Muscles being tired can't really be attributed to improper form, without more detail. Maybe just repetition and other parts of your workout? Not saying you're necessarily doing it correctly, we just can't know for sure without a pic or vid.

When you're pumped because you probably don't have appendicitis and should be well enough to train in another day or two ;)

...when you're threatened with the fact that you might have your appendix out and your first thought is of how long that would take you out of training.
