Parkour And Freerunning / Well, this is goodbye for some time.
« on: June 08, 2009, 08:28:57 AM »
So recently I've been thinking about my lifestyle and such and what problems I have and I have targeted my main one, I'm addicted to the computer. I'm no where near unhealthy, but I think I will be if I stay on the computer all summer, so for the rest of summer break I am unplugging the computer and giving the cord to my mom to hide, so this is goodbye for the summer.

Parkour / Re: How to Flow?
« on: June 07, 2009, 01:32:56 PM »
I don't really like the word flow because people focus on getting "flow" instead of have fun, but if you want to move smoothly learn one footed takeoffs on kong and flips and such http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX53jKgDxLQ

Ok I decided to do a quick, high intensity leg workout and now they feel like noodles.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: WHAT!?!?
« on: June 06, 2009, 09:19:13 AM »
I'm going to get a million billion smites for this, but I think I can honestly say that he is as good if not slightly better than David Belle. The way that guy just moves, I mean c'mon people!

Smites in 3... 2... 1... GO!

I'm sure David Belle doesn't train in a gymnasium though. Most of his stunts were in a gym... and he's an olympic tumbler, but he's got mad skills none the less, that speed to b-twist vault thing is sick

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: What should i learn first
« on: June 05, 2009, 06:57:18 AM »
When you start your proper landings and rolls, don't just go, "ehhhhh good enough, let's get to vaulting!" That's a great way to hurt yourself. Drill the ever-living crap out of those things. Drill them to the point where when you land, you don't even think about it. You just go into the right position automatically, muscle reflex. Spending all that time on the landings and rolls will get you more used to using your body in the way Parkour requires, and it's a good start for base conditioning.

Also, start stretching a lot. Parkour requires a wide range of body movement, so the more places your body can reach the better off you'll be. Make sure you can do at least five full pull-ups to start, both with palms towards and away. Work on ankle exercises, which can be done anywhere. The stronger your ankles, the better your landings and take-offs will be.

Yes, drill rolls everyday. The first thing I do when I get out of bed is do 25 rolls.

Diet / Re: Soy

If you REALLY know what you are doing and you are REALLY disciplined then, of course, it doesn't matter...though it would be easier to acheive your goal as outlined above.

Ahh. Temptation :/

It's a bitch aint it?  Oh crap that's 5 dive bomber pushups for swearing.

If your not going to read **** posts than just quit. Unless you might want to get your head out of your @$$ and look around, nowhere is "Unparkourable' just take a freaking look around. Jump off and then do rolls on the park benches/ladders/etc. vault over the swings, jump over garbage cans, race squirrels. COME OUT OF YOUR SHELL AND GO DO PARKOUR!
ouch, i thought i would meet smart people here it appears you are not one of them

Eh... that wasn't necessary...from either of you.

I live in a suburb and I found a generator and practiced for 4 hours on that... a generator.

Good luck!

Diet / Re: Soy
« on: June 04, 2009, 07:13:04 PM »

I haven't found many in-depth threads on soy so I was curious. Forgive me for sounding naive but what products are pure soy? Soy milk? Also someone said whole milk has more growth hormones so I should avoid it? I have a feeling this is false. Can you confirm?
By pure soy I mean normal soy. It's green, and looks like a bean, usually inside a peapod like shell, and you eat it. It's pretty tasty steamed or boiled with some salt. In japan it's also called edamame.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Edamame_by_Zesmerelda_in_Chicago.jpg
I personally find soy milk disgusting, but that would be an in-between thing. But basically things with just soy-protein are much better as supplements than things make from some processing or another of soy just because you might get a lot of stuff you don't necessarily want, like extra fat (which would taste better from other foods) etc. Also personally I find soy milk tastes terrible compared to something delicious to me like skim milk, or even in general, and other stuff made with soy, like tofu etc also doesn't taste as good as something made with just soy protein isolates or even just the plain, normal soy bean used as a normal vegetable.

And on the milk, seriously, use the search function  ::) there's a thread on that specific question right on the same page as this thread:
http://www.americanparkour.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,159/topic,17373.msg202346/#msg202346
and the answer is that no, that's a myth, there is no risk of getting strange hormonal effects from drinking milk, at all, as I explain in that thread.


Some nutritionist told me whole milk had more hormones from steroids than skim so I should stay away from it. The thread you gave me was milk in general but it did answer my question kind of.

if your trying to gain weight, drink whole milk. If your trying to lose weight, drink 2% or less.

If you're trying to gain weight drink whole milk. If you're trying to lose weight don't drink milk and eat healthy. Or drink whole milk and eat a bit less but still healthy.

No reason to drink skin or 2% really...

Ok thanks for the correction Steve.

I'm surprised he's not a bigger name considering his video was one that got the Parkour revival started.

Usually my equipment when I train is an extra shirt (I sweat for a living), a stopwatch, a camera, and a notepad and paper (incase I want to write directions to a hotspot or just journal about the day.)

backflip

No...period.

From what I've heard on here, you shouldn't just start learning technique after technique as a beginner, just go out for a jog and see what comes naturally whether that's a safety vault or some other technique you create.

By the way no big drops... rolls would be good to learn.

Injuries - Discussion / Re: unique problem
« on: June 04, 2009, 03:40:06 PM »
Sounds like to me you need to go to a sports doctor.

THIS IS NOT DIAGNOSIS: I have the same pain below the knee and it was because of Osgood Shlatters Disease and heavy squatting before I realized that I should probably stop squatting until my injury was gone.
