First blog, and beginner.

Not much of a blogger, so this most likely won't get updated for a while. But just a little about me:

I've really just started Parkour...this week. >.>

Still working on strength training and building up my endurance.

My biggest problem is I have exercise induced asthma. Even though it isn't serious, it can be a hindrance.

Other than simple strength training, I'm working on rolling first and foremost, and going out on days I'm not working or at school to practice, both… Continue

Monday Conditioning

I got home alright - they lost my luggage for a day but no big deal.



Trained Monday night with my brother. Turns out the brick wall at the front our house I thought would be awesome is in fact ... unstable.



We have some gym equipment at home so did some boxing and free weights as part of the session.



Alternated stair box jumps (big stairs, 3 up, 3 down) with 20 push ups with little break.



It's very different training in the heat.



Haven't… Continue

Jump Sky High!

Recently I went to Sky High Sports in Santa Clara and I highly recommend it. It was only $9 for an hour of jumping which turned out to be more than I bargained for. I got on the trampolines and started bouncing all over the place continually. I went up and down as high as I could, did front flips, back flips, jumped off the walls as far as I could, and finally I was completely exhausted. I had to bend over and take a breather. My lungs burned,… Continue

Marin anybody?

comrades, fellow parkour/freerunning peoples of the bay area, would anyone be interested in having a jam in Marin County (my home-front) ?



I would willingly set up an event on the website but I'm not sure if anyone would have the impetus to make the trip. Anybody down? i know a great spot that we won't get kicked out of!



San Rafael High School: 50 seconds in through the end of the… Continue

Inertia; getting outside.

I need to be kidnapped.



There is always some reason I can not get out to Doe Library on Thursday between 6 and 8. There was my sister who was in rehab, and she had meetings that I wanted to go to in order to better support her. And there were other reasons. I remembered my reason for last week... but now I don't. They were all very good reasons. I remember that much.



I was forced to look in my facebook back log, and I see that I was only doing house work, instead of… Continue

Injuries, soreness, and uncomfortable things

Recently, I've discovered an interesting trend with how I progress in parkour. If I'm injured, even in some small way, fear will grip me whenever I'm doing even the simplest things, and more often than not, I'll be unable to complete simple vaults that I've done a hundred times before(See: Turn vaults). This was a big thing for me when I had shin splints, as it was difficult for me to hang on to the things I already knew, much less learn new things or get better at all.



Which brings… Continue
