Train Hard - Stay Humble

SafeNSure asked if I'd share my vid with your community, so here it is.
It's nothing flash, just training.

It's basically just some footage of training I was doing early this year, and the main idea behind it was to do a vid showing Parkour isn't about being flash but progression and hard work.

Hope you enjoy it

Yes, Kamau hates flashy tricks, espeically butterfly spins, flips, and no handed cartwheels. ;D

i liked the precision on top of that giant "H" looking structure...looked intense

yeah chris does alot of this "hot lava" stuff.

and i'll watch for this heel to toe slap theory, i dont usually take off from the heel or land on it too much but i'll check to make sure the POI isnt creeping back on me.

down here in LA the guys i train with do conditioning either as much or more than they trace. Aero, before i would have agreed with you, but as i'm feeling/seeing the benefits of all that conditioning, i urge you guys to do as much of it as you can. I'll admit I enjoy it a lot more if i'm in a group though - so you guys might want to try doing it during the next meet.

Thought it was a great conditioning vid. If your Knees and shins are acting up, it is a good indication that you arent doing enough of this kind of training, It sounds like you are going too big too quick. your body will take a while to get conditioned for the stuff you want to do, remember there is no rush.
Probably 80% of training should be done this way, sounds heaps but your body (knees) will thank you for it.
Shin splints in Parkour can be caused from toe slap (taking off and landing from the heal which slaps your toes down causing stress on the shin muscles) try using the balls of the feet instead. Also split foot take offs when doing SDC's will also safe the knees, because it doesn't stop your momentum like two feet take off does.
You may already know this - just trying to help.

i was talking about the embedded video. The NO TRICKS had some spots i thought looked pretty baller "Flash-wise". Some of those running cats look pretty big. nice pure pk vid, no flashy upsidedown-ness but still some some craziness

haha if its raining maybe... Otherwise its all speed and flash baby

i get bored/tired/lazy with this kind of training, id rather throw some momentum around most times. Maybe i'll try it more if the shin splints act up or my knee acts up.

my big problem with this is the lack of speed/momentum. this is like doing pushups on your knees instead of doing pushups with a clap. the intensity level just seems a little out of place. a warm up maybe, but seems hard to get where you wanna go focusing on this kinda stuff.
