Hey everyone who happens to turn to this blog post on this particular day. There has been parkour afoot in my life lately. I am just busting at the seems with happiness I have been able to get outside and train.

Thursday and Saturday of last week were devoted to outdoor training.

Thursday I went out and after a quick little warmup my training partner and I played some sprinting games up stairs and thru our environment. We did this for about an hour followed by stretching and some soft tissue work and finally had to call it quits for we had other plans to attend to.

Saturday was more exciting and after a mile and a half run up and down a parking garage we spent two hours training at some old spots of mine. Worked on climbups, underbars, cat leaps, gate vaults, kong vaults, dash vaults, side vaults, thief vaults, and QM's. We played some water and ice related games as part of our year of the alchemy index training games series. We played a long game of "flow like water" working on stringing as many movements as possible effortlessly and quietly thru small and big spaces.

Safe training y'all

Trying to think up new ways to build muscle, lose fat, stay fit etc. without going to the gym is so easy with parkour! It's like there are endless possibilities for me to train my body to become a better stronger me.

Today was a toughy. 4 sets of 40 x Pushups, Pullups, Box Jumps and Situps

So exhausted by the end of it.

Cold Dank and Rainy Training

Well folks it is that time again. I'm back to share my experiences in training to strengthen my body through daily movement or as some like to call it "PARKOUR". Today was a dreary rainy day. I stayed inside and watched tv for the most part (which i feel quite bad about). I can't wait till spring to get outside more. I could not get outside for running like i had wanted to due to the ground being completely covered in ice!

So for training what I ended up doing was warming up with 3x: 10x: pushups, pullups, squats, v sits, and then supplemented hip stretching, and shoulder ROM exercises.

The Workout I shot for was 5 sets of 5 reps of Burpee + Broad jumps.

Then cause i wanted to drill some sprinting but could not I drilled as many exercises as i could in a half hour period. I started with as many pushup forms as i could think of (divebomber, side to side, plyo, square, weighted) then worked on my quadropedal movements (forward, backward, ground kongs, alligators, crab walks) then finally pullups (weighted, L pullups, frenchies, chin ups, clap pull ups)

Cooled down with stretching.

I cannot wait to be rid of snow. But it is just another obstacle that I will have to overcome till spring!
