Train Hard - Stay Humble
"There's lots of days where I can't be bothered, and where I have to get up, and then I do, and I start finding my rhythm, and after 10, 15 minutes I start to love it."
Perfection at 14:
Greatness at 50:
I can barely do a flip having my body tucked, and she is flying with her body fully extended...

8 hours a day....aouuuuuu
I found it interesting to see the raw, unedited and unskewed footage of a person who does crazy, but well-executed movements like:
although he engages in some morally questionable activity in the first video several times, you can see the power, fluidity, improv and creativity that I feel somehow gets lost in repetitive training.
...I think "Don't do it" really summarizes well all I wanted to say.
Haha yes... I'm guilty in getting inspiration from people doing crazy things (started after watching Oleg Vorslav's first video lol).
you are completely right though. A large portion of the parkour scene in eastern europe is dominated by machismo.
a video with a lot of nice bar-work, though (there's a small point where he takes a lot of technically unsophisticated but unnecessarily large drops):
my favorite part is, of course (predictably), the pants.
I remember watching videos of this guy from 2007... he wore dreads, was clumsy, a lot skinnier and not very well-coordinated.
How come I've never trained at the Wave Organ? That looks fun.
This is just "wrong"...
...dude is 5'5".
At some point "it's not about breaking records anymore"...
