I'm really lucky to live where there is a group that have meetings to do something called Parkour in my town, naming themselves Northern Parkour.
They have meetings every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and every first Sunday of the month.
The Tuesday is a conditioning/strength exercise session to get muscles building. Stuff you'd do in the gym, but out in the real world.
I'm really looking forward to learning from them.
I can so far do a few vaults, and some wall jumping, but I don't have much muscle at the moment (I'm pretty skinny), but I think that Parkour is going to give me them. I can lift my own weight, i.e chin up's/pull up's, but not for a very long period.
Need to get my jumping distance increased though, but that will come with time
That's about them, and them showing off But mainly about Parkour in general and what it means.
Its considered an extreme sport, but its only as extreme as you make it
Would really like to see how fast some of you can run maybe 100m or more, and post results. Maybe we can do a bit of training of our own.
How long can you keep running up for?
I tend to differ. If I'm full of adrenaline, I can run for ages, but if I'm just running for the sake of running, like with no real purpose, I can't run fast, and get tired quicker.
