Schools cracking down? lol

Junior year is starting for me. It is getting harder and harder to find time to train and progress. I worked hard over the weekend so i could take a day off of summer homework and do some training. I went down to the school down my hill and was working on a kong vault by practicing over a picnic table. after a couple of minutes i was just bouncing off the end of the table. i went back to my starting position totally ready to clear the table when i hear a loud and angry "HEY!". Right before i… Continue

LCHS Conditioning 6 (upper body especially back)

August 12



I arrived late so I just jumped in to the pull ups they were doing. After a painful spasm in a shoulder muscle during the wide-arm pull ups I realized I'd forgotten to stretch. ALWAYS stretch. Always. With the different pull ups I did what I could, still not able to go from a dead hang yet. But I followed the reps. It all works towards building it up... That's probably what I learned most this summer: do what you can even if it's pretty pathetic, because over time that's… Continue

UCLA 9

August 9



Good news: I've surely improved. Bad news: not hit my goal yet. At least in this certain obstacle :P



Basically I can grip the top of the med center wall every single time now, but when I try to hold on all that happens is I lose skin. I even hung there for a second once. But inside my hand little bites of flesh were disappearing and I finally quit for the day so I'd have energy to do other things and hands that weren't too sore. This means I only have one more… Continue

Vancouver Parkour

Just finished my third and final day of parkour with the Vancouver parkour group. As with the SF group, I get completely schooled.



Every session starts with an hour of conditioning. Parkour conditioning is broken down into its fundamentals - running, climbing, jumping, and quads (crawling). Typical workouts start with some group form of stretches, pushups, jump (tucks, or box), a long duck walk (400m), or crawl, and balance training. Then it's off to the different… Continue

Gym time (welcome home)

August 7



Thursday, gym day, into August already..... I'll be back in two weeks or so....



I didn't really do much over my vacation, so I was looking forward to having my butt kicked. Rickroll and I were at the mercy of Cliff and Kerris this time. Ten burpies to start, then Kerris led us in something new.

"Jog in place. High knees right now let's go. Good. No, higher. Alright, now on my count, when I say, 'ONE' you guys are gonna drop to the ground and do one push up… Continue

Eh

July 26



UCLA, but nothing to note of this one :P Did a few conditioning courses in the beginning with King, but besides that, I kind just hung around. Maybe it was because my upper body was sore from Thursday or because we were skipping most of my favorite spots, but I wasn't feeling very parkoury. Between Huntington Beach, LCHS, and the gym, I didn't feel guilty for taking a light day on Saturday. Worked on running precisions and enjoyed the atmosphere.





In other… Continue

And you may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"

I've forgotten what and when exactly my first exposure to parkour was, but it was years ago. I have a faint memory of seeing it on TV; it might have been a small document on CNN, or a special feature in some movie or other that featured parkour stunts. What I remember is a small group of traceurs moving from Point A to Point B in a parking garage, vaulting, but in a very chill and deliberate fashion.



There might have been the occasional brush of awareness after that, but the next big… Continue
