Parkour And Freerunning / What Vault is this?
« on: June 24, 2015, 04:35:18 PM »
I started some vault training, I can't do much yet, thanks to my weight and strength, but when I started, I didn't know what vaults are which, so I just done what I could
The only way I could get to work, or only way that I wasn't scared to do right now, is now that I see it, is like the lazy vault BUT,one leg crosses first and then the other, lets say I take my legs up to the right of me, I put my right leg first on the ground then I spin to the left, twisting my body to the way I was facing, kinda easy but hard to explain, do any of you know the name of this vault or if there is any like this? couldn't find it :(

Movement / Hand placement
« on: June 12, 2015, 12:35:52 PM »
How far away from your legs do you place your hands? I was doing it way to close and just fell down on my shoulder and rolled, it didn't hurt it just made by shoulder feel weird and like I hit something to hard xD I tried it further away and got it once where it didn't really feel bad, but then I went to far and basically done a dive roll, felt the same problem xD lol

Movement / Did this ever happen to you?
« on: June 10, 2015, 05:11:09 PM »
for days upon days I knew exactly how to do parkour rolls basic version, today when I tried it I was messing up HORRIBLY bad, and had to get it right again, something was different then other days, I have no clue what, did my legs get stronger? did I lose some pounds? no clue, but something was different, like how I moved was slightly different, but I did get it down slightly again but not as good as before, so did this ever happen to you? its really odd.

Movement / Basic Techniques
« on: May 26, 2015, 05:24:03 PM »
I was wondering what are all the basic techniques? of course I ain't moving on from the roll unto I can dive into it but yeah... what are they?
Probably won't do any until I lose weight (I found the reason I ain't losing weight, so basically I was addicted to iced tea galikers for YEARS and didn't exercise and I would drink like 7 cups of it a day, yeah each cup had 21 grams of carbs in it that combined with no exercise yeah that = a lot of weight, so I am going to throw iced tea out of my diet and junk food too, well I might have 1 cup a day or so, but not as much as before, :) now I know why I kept gaining weight but slower when I started to do 150 squats a day, I almost was doing enough activity to stop gaining weight before but not enough... BTW anyone got tips for getting rid of junk food in your diet? xD)

Movement / Roll technique
« on: May 24, 2015, 10:03:30 AM »
So I think I can do the roll, but I can't get up immediatly, this is how I do the roll (no video)
I squat to the point my knees are Paralegal to my Butt then I tuck my head into my left shoulder, I put my hands on the left side my me slightly, and I roll onto my right shoulder (the back of it) but every time I get out of the roll I end up  either with one leg under the other and one up and similar things like that :o, just want to know if you guys can tell whats wrong with it just with this explanation :P can't really get videos up anytime soon

Gorilla PK / Hey
« on: May 22, 2015, 05:25:37 PM »
Hey! I'm 14 and around 6'4, I am 300 pounds (I was stupid and got addicted to comuters)
I have always wanted to do Free running/PK but never could get into it, I plan on doing this for fun and losing weight :)
Yeah I'm 100 pounds over weight BUT I can move just as easy as my brother who is only around 30 pounds overweight or so, so yeah xD

Just want tips and similar :)

Movement / Rolling
« on: May 22, 2015, 02:07:59 PM »
I can't seem to get the rolling technique right..  I try it I can rule from my shoulder diagonally, but I always end up messing it up and rolling to the right or something, instead of staying straight...

Parkour And Freerunning / Overweight
« on: May 22, 2015, 07:54:18 AM »
I'm 14, 6,4 and rather overweight (300 pounds) even though I am overweight I can move just as good as if I wasn't (other then stamina) I am trying to lose it, and I thought this would be fun and good to lose weight.
I know I can do flips on trampolines but honestly don't know about off of them yet, (its been years sense I done them on trampolines), so I was wondering if anyone else is in this situation? and if you can do freerunning good? BTW by what I meant b saying I can move just as fast if I wasn't well, my brother 6,3 like 220-30 pounds I can move just as fast as him even though hes overweight... xD

and another question should I risk doing a flip on soft grass I honestly have nothing else to do them on xD all I know is I can do them on trampolines even if its been years...
