Parkour general thread. How's your training been lately?
Post your clips, get props. Post your questions, get tips.
There are some experienced parkour guys here on /asp/ who can help you out.

FAQ:
I'm X weight Y height, can I do parkour?
Do it! Yes you can! Anything is possible!

How to start?
Find people in your area who train. Facebook groups usually. Just go out with some people and try out some jumps.

Is parkour dangerous?
You choose all the risks you take. If you take care you will not get hurt. Most people only get the occasional scrape or bruise.
You're most prone to injuries as a beginner. It's a time in your life when you learn lots of new things quickly and it goes straight to your head. So keep it cool.

How to minimize risks?
Always check the environment before doing jumps. Might be a broken bottle or a nail sticking out somewhere. Check the structural integrity of the obstacles. That fence might not be strong enough to support your weight. Check everything, test everything.

Most important movements to train?
Check this gif collection to get started:
http://imgur.com/a/wvy4W

Rolling hurts?
Yes is does, because you're doing it wrong. After 10,000 repetitions it doesn't hurt anymore. It's one of those techniques that you just have to grind out, there's no shortcuts.

How to get stronger for parkour?
Most common body weight or calisthenics exercises are tried and true. Squats, push ups, pull ups, plyometrics. There are lots of guides for these. You can also get stronger by simply repeating some parkour movements.

Good shoes?
Start with minimalist shoes. Thin sole, zero heel to toe drop, flexible materials. Feiyue and Merrell's barefoot models are popular. Thick soled running shoes can ruin your ground sensitivity and balance. But if you really desire more padding on your foot, try Adistar Racer, Puma Faas 300, Ollo.

Good pants?
Cheap XXXL sweats. Slazenger is popular. Etre Fort are great but IMO not as great as buying 10 pairs of a cheaper brand.
>>
>>728912
What's actually the difference between wearing XXXL sweats and smaller ones?
I always wear the bigger ones because everyone does but is there any real point apart from it looking cool?
>>
>>729231

No difference really. Wear what you think is best. Could be argued that the best pants performance-wise would be skin tight compression pants.

I prefer big pants because they hide my ass. Don't have to worry about my big round ass sticking out whenever I'm in some kind of a squat pose.
>>

>>
>>729258
Please tell me more about this "big round ass" of yours?
>>
>>729524

It's a result of 10 years squatting and plyos.
No homo.
>>
Getting back into things and have a club meeting coming up this next sunday! Starting to feel really pumped up to teach some people the basics and get them interested in doing parkour.

Any tips i guess for getting people 'on the fence' to decide to stick with it after a trial run?
>>
>>729897

Open the session by demonstrating some high level stuff. Like before you start drilling rolls, show them some wicked dive roll through a flaming hoop, and tell them they'll be able to do the same thing after a while.
>>
>>730155
anon pls, I have no flaming hoopz
>>
>>730509
>Not having Flaming Hoops
Come on Minn. You even train?

Also, Training while sick? Been sick all weekend and it sucks. Can hardly jump. Basic jumps and movement are painful. and its horrible. The gains are real today boys
>>
>>730835

Don't train when you are sick.

Training after a break can be tough. After a 2 week trip to Japan, I came home to find I had totally lost my touch, especially in precision jumps. Maybe it was the long flights or just the lack of physical activity.
I found barefoot to be the answer to get the touch back quickly. Slow the movement down and scale it back, just doing tiny stuff barefoot. Somehow it got me in contact with my inner monkey again.
>>
>>730961
I'm going to actually spend a week finding sources to say that training while you are sick is beneficial.

This will include all arts.
>>
This also needs a bump

Hard day of training today.
2 hours indoors + 3 hours outdoors + walking about 10km in between.
>>
>>728912
>How's your training been lately?
I've been doing some hiking in the woods, not as exciting and fast paced, but it's not bad.
The woods are beautiful, full of plant and insect life (nice diversity), I occasionally see some mammals and avian life forms relatively up close, maybe hear some frogs.
The obstacles are usually just the occasional fallen tree(or)log(or)branch (depending on the obstacle, it can be stepped or hopped over, or vaulted), steep drops and raises in elevation, and uneven ground, but getting through paths with sticker bushes takes time and coordination.
>>
Is anyone from Adelaide doing parkour?
>>
>>728912
>How's your training been lately?

I've managed to roll without popping off pieces of back and spine on a wooden floor regularly enough.

Then I saw elementary school kids doing vault and flips on a commercial.

Then I quit this shit again.

I just cant lift my legs high enough to do a vault or kip up. How do I train to accomplish this?
>>
>>733246
There are generally 3 main factors to performing these maneuvers:
>technique
>flexibility
>strength

Identify which one(s) are contributing most to your inability to perform these movements, and then train accordingly.

Personally, my lack of upper body strength has been holding me back in a few places.
>>
>>733282
I got the technique side down I think since I know what I'm supposed to be doing so it's just my flexibiliy and strength. I have no idea what progressions to do though
>>
>>733417
For getting your hips up, I suggest finding a wall you can comfortably place your hands on, then just practice jumping and raising your hips as much as you can.
>>
Any parkour teachers / coaches / instructors in here?

I started a local club with 2 other guys, this is our 3rd year operating and we have about 200 students. I teach 7 hours a week. AMA.
>>
>>734455
I've taught some family and friends Parkour, nothing professional though.
>>
>>734455
How many instructors are available, and how do you manage 200 students with that amount of instructors?
Also, what's your gym/club area like?
>>
>>734457

4 guys now teaching, 1-2 for a training session depending on it's size. We can manage it quite well. We have groups almost every day of the week.

We use school gymnasiums, same as other sports clubs that don't have their privately owned space. i.e. dance, volleyball, some martial arts... We ask city council to only book as to gyms that have ok gymnastics equipment, and usually they oblige.

Hi guys, General question:
When you do a parkour roll, how far sideways do you roll?

Is shoulder to shoulder too much?

I have 10 years of parkour, now i am only doing some street workout, i am 26 and the people training are 14, 16... some times i go out to train alone.
>>
>>737692
There's one vertebra sticking out exactly in that path that I always roll over
Any advice?
>>
God it's been a minute. Got distracted with life and never got around to proving that dude wrong. I'll get back to that eventually(Read Never)

>>734455
I "Instruct" and I've filled in. But I'm not a "teacher". I find it hard to accept payment to teach something I feel everyone should know, if they want to learn. I just tell people to come out with me, and then do as I do. Most days if it's someone new, I go over Ukemi, and then the basic movement. If they truly want to learn, They'll continue from that and join me as I go out. Considering, I've maybe only had one person out of that about 40ish some odd over the years keep training.
>>737511
You're gonna need to go deeper on your name
>>737976
I mean, Considering the type of roll, Which shoulder, and the material of which I'm rolling on, My rolls are all different. But refer to the OP. You have to grind it out. Also, make a video and post it here.
>>
>>737976

yes there is. Keep training and eventually it will not be a problem anymore. Your technique will improve, that part of your back will harden, and maybe you get more muscle in your back that acts as a cushion.

Went out and trained with some old faces today and had a small discussion on Squatting. And while it was agreed that your back is straight(Duh), but where you should bend at the hips. So either go straight down into squatting, or kind of go like a power lifter does his squats. What are your thoughts?
>>
>>739235

Ass out
>>
>>728912
There's no free run general so I will ask here
I have a background in weightlifting and rock climbing, so I am proficient at jumping.

Is a side flip or back flip easier to start with?
>>
>>739675
Free Running and Tricking is welcome here.
I'd personally suggest starting with 360s and cartwheels (also, handsprings) before trying flips; maybe side rolls, too.
>>
>>739675

I think side flip is easier to learn because you can do cartwheels as a progression.

Once you get a hang of back flips, it's the easiest flip. But the initial hump can be quite big.
>>
>>739675
>>739690

Speaking of parkour/freerunning/tricking.

If you're a parkour guy and don't train any acrobatics, then shame on you pretty much. It's one of the best supplemental trainings.

I've been sort of an indoors type for most of my life and have been wanting to get into parkour for a while now. I think it's a fun way to keep fit but I feel kind of stupid when I start running in public. Any advice that does not involve Shia?

It took me a solid 3 minutes to figure out you ment the Actor and not a sect of Islam.
Get a buddy to go with you? Go out and jog at night? Start hiking if you have the trails. But you're always gonna look like a Fag going out by yourself. No matter how long you train for or how good you get.
Of which went training yesterday and Got kicked out of two places nd told I was gonna break something 3 times. Not a good day.

I thought about creating a Parkour training simulator where the player(s) must quickly view a small landscape, see point-A and point-B, then identify and select the most efficient moves and paths, then after doing so, they will be scored on speed of identifying, efficiency of energy, time, and distance, and given results and their stats.

I want to devote 30 mins out of the hour I have to train to just rolls. Is this a good idea? I figured I would start from the ground up again and really drive technique.
>>
>>749558
Lol, That's the best time to talk! You make so many strides. Learning to roll, Learning all the vaults and performing them successfully. Feeling the slowly but surely change in confidence. God, I love talking to new people because it reminds me of when I started and forces me to be humble. Brings me back down from my Ego drive. Remaining Humble is the second hardest thing I've been learning.

>>749642
Everything. A lot of Rolling and Jump tech. Squats and soon I'll be hitting my upper body again.

>>749786
Roll. Every. Day. For. As. Long. As. Possible.
In my honest opinion, the roll is the hardest technique to learn because it covers so many vast movements. Learning to roll Forward, Backward, Side to side, On a small ledge. From a Kong/Pre/Speed. When you fuck up from any form of movement. It took me a long time to even begin rolling with the intent of failing. Increased my confident tenfold knowing I could eat shit and be fine with instincts.
>>
>>729258
What about mountain khakis? I have a pair and they're extremely flexible and I've yet to encounter any movement restrictions. They're also canvas, so more protection than sweats. Check them out, no joke.
>>
>>749807
>Everything.
Do you usually do a lot of traveling during your training? I think I Remember you mentioning something about you biking.
Do you have an ultimate spot? I forget, do you teach at a gym?

I don't even have a bike, so I usually have to split my training and focus on one thing on one day, then go to a different spot another day.
>>
>>749786
I've probably rolled hundreds of times by now.
>>749807
>Increased my confident tenfold knowing I could eat shit and be fine with instincts.
Since I've been out of dedicated practice for a while, I fell 2 days ago, and I did that slap-out, crawl-ish, turn thing, when it would've been much more efficient to just roll.
It's time for me to start rolling every day now.
>>
>>749903

Roll 10,000 times.

And then roll 10,000 times over the other shoulder.
>>
>>749959
Probably worth it to alternate rather than focus on nothing but one side. That way you wouldn't get too reliant on one side.
>>
Maybe backwards Parkour should be a thing.
Getting from point A to point B, but all while your back's turned to your obstacles.
>>
>>749901
All depends. I've been getting back into the community and some days we travel across town. others we stay in one spot. Same with my Solo. Sometimes I know exactly what I want to practice and have the perfect spot in mind. Others I just want to do an all body and move from park to park.
>>750893
>What is your normal days worth of Training?
>>
Dunno if this is the right thread but: anyone here have much experience with tricking and what have you?

I'm trying to start getting the basics, and I just can't seem to generate enough height or spin to pull off a really clean tornado or 540 kick. I'm not really sure how to train for it any more than keep trying the movement. Any ideas or advice for some stuff I could try to start really nailing it?
>>
>>754143
>not enough height
If your technique is clean, you need to work on strength.
Jump squats, lifting, etcetera.

>can't generate enough spin
Again, technique and strength.
Strength isn't usually too much of a factor for spin, but it's possible that your core is very weak.

A general rule of thumb for the spinning portion of the tornado kick is to rotate your upper body first, and let your lower portion follow, more of a guild line than a rule.
>>
>>754148
Right so if I throw in some plyometrics and explosive movements in my lifting, that should help with the jumps. Do double and single leg stuff I guess, to help with jumping off one leg?

With the following the upper body thing, I think I put too much effort into bringing the non kicking leg up and in, and that messes with the rest of the movement and the spin. I guess I'll keep trying and do some more jump training. Thanks mate.
>>
>>754255
No chance you can get a video and post it here? That would help immensely
>>
>>754289
I'll consider it. I'd really appreciate the help, I'm just a little busy right now with exam study (Aus) to get some decent training in. And I'm also rather paranoid about videos on the internet. Once exams are over I'll get one and put it up.

What would you say are the minimum fitness requirements to really delve into Parkour and give it a good go?

How would you go about training to achieve them?

A solid cardio base, decent strength, and ability to control your body (bodyweight/calisthenics shit) and some plyo work along with fairly good mobility?

I'm basically having to give up my aspirations of being a powerlifter (My first meet was to be in 3 months) due to a change in jobs - I'm going to be stuck on a farm with 0 lifting equipment. So bodyweight shit is all I've got - but it's not all that appealing to me. But Parkour looks cool, so maybe bodyweight stuff can be a means to an end. And doing some cool jumps and shit on farm equipment sounds fucking fun.
>>
>>755228
If you can jump, do a push-up, do a pull-up, and can run for at least 10 seconds, you're good. Depending on the Parkour movements being done, you don't even need to have all those requirements.

To be able to practice for a longer period of time, though, that will require some more fitness.

What do you mean by this?
>>
>>757504
Thoughts. As in opinions on the shoe. I guess I assumed everyone lifted, my bad.
So, for deadlifts I've been using squishy spongey sneakers and that's not good for maximum energy transfer. Imagine pulling a pillow through prison bars when you're trying to yank them down. The pillow will collapse and pass through. Now if you pulled a 2x4 it would disperse the energy more uniformly. So I'm looking for a cheap shoe that has a relatively flat sole that would also be decent for parkour. From what I've seen in other forums there's no right or wrong answer . I already ordered and received another shoe and I dig them.
My deadlift feels smoother in the bottom and I can actually feel the ground when I walk and jump rope.
>>
What kind of shoes are appropriate for a beginner?
>>
>>757898
Whatever shoes you have.
>>
So, a friend of mine took me to hit up our small town. It was neat to look at everything different. I really enjoyed it and will definitely be pursuing this more and more. Too bad that it snows like 5 months out of the year here.
>>
>>756076
So I was, and still am a hater of Feiyues. I bought a pair to hate. To my utter Dismay, I actually kinda liked the minimal shoe. So, They are basic and cheap to start off with minimal shoes. Ultimately, you want a shoe with no sole or protection so you're forced to do everything with good tech. But their are better and longer lasting shoes out there. Feiyues are a good cheap starter. And yea, Flat foot Deadlift this will work.

Body weight stuff is pretty easy to list.

For the life of me a cannot seem to vault anything over 4 feet. I'm in great shape, and I'm very tall (6'4") but every time I fuck it up. This is true for one handed, two handed, dash, and lazy vaults. What the fuck am I doing wrong? I always find obstacles that are either way too short to be a challenge, or way too tall.

I am a firefighter with an interest in becoming a traceur. What aspects of parkour training might be useful to my department? I've got a few guys interested in building a training course that's a bit more challenging than the standard one.

Bunker gear is bulky and heavy, and I suspect the wearing of an SCBA is going to affect breakfalls and rolling. What techniques should be avoided/modified?

>What aspects of parkour training might be useful to my department?
Parkour has move sets used to overcome obstacles.
Being a firefighter, you (probably) don't know where a fire is, what the building structures are like; you just won't know what to encounter.
But Parkour has moves that are used throughout the world because though there is great diversity in the world, there are a vast amount of similarities.

>tl;dr
There's so much different shit out there that you might as well start with all of the basics.

But since you're a firefighter, you have access to things like axes and tall ass ladders.

>What techniques should be avoided/modified?
I don't know what wearing that tank is going to do to your rolls, but you could always do a slapout; you guys are supposed to be strong anyway, aren't you?

First off, before I begin moderating again since the Janitor for /asp/ sucks ass. Considering I lurk daily, I guess I could post then and there but meh. Is anyone going to the Morzine Camp next year?

That makes sense. When I work out, I go through the entire set 3 times. So start with Lunges and end with the Wall climber. 1 set. Repeat starting with the lunges. Second set. And again. That's How I do it. Though /fit/ might tell you otherwise. I've heard people say do 3 sets of one before you move on to the next.

>>808776

When they asked the two women to try it out, the older sister refused, but the younger woman accepted the challenge.

It's Niggers like that, that give Parkour it's bad name. Considering how it's honestly, should be one of the safest sports ever, if the ideology is correct in the teacher.

This is exactly what I'm looking for. If you can remember any other details to help me find them, that'd be awesome.

I'll be visiting family soon and was thinking about finding someone who make moccasins on the reservation and having them make me a black leather lace-up moccasin with a rubber coating on the bottom, but if someone already makes a good tracker boot in black, I'll just buy from the experienced manufacturer.

i don't watch many parkour vids as i should (cared more about my own progress when i first started, still do now) but this was great despite a decent amount of it being just running. The casual sideflip in the middle of being chased and laughter afterward was the best. I assume this was somewhere in france what with french being spoken and the description mentioning pay respect to german rest period times?

>i don't watch many parkour vids as i should (cared more about my own progress when i first started
I understand. When I was closer to when I started Parkour, a friend of mine that didn't even practice at the time was talking to me about Daniel Ilabaca, and expected me to know who he was, but I had no idea at all. I was also more of a Parkour purist at that time. I still am more of a purist, just a little less these days.

Especially with martial arts, I had little to no knowledge of UFC fighters, didn't know K1 even existed, I just focused on honing my skill.
>>
>>837743
>but this was great despite a decent amount of it being just running.
Things like this aid in giving us a better understanding of applied Parkour.
For most people, when practicing Parkour, they're just training Parkour in theory, training Parkour hypothetically, working more on technique than anything.

The practitioners in the video got to experience applied Parkour.
And us, we get to analyze their experience, think critically about it, interpret it.
>>
>>728912
Any of you fags do airshit or otherwise combine parkour with milsim or martial arts?
>>
>>819038
It can be if you work up to it, but when you first start out, no, probably not. Start off basic, work your way up. In general, strength training should have at least 24 hours of rest before you do the next session for that unit of muscles, preferably 48 for full recovery if you did really intense work. The first few times you do it you'll get DOMS (delayed-onset muscle soreness) because you're doing something new. With more sessions it'll go away.

If you're landing hard on concrete, that could definitely be what's making you sore too.

The General Idea from kinda lurking /fit/ Is full body work-outs like 3 days a week with Cardio on the other two days.(Full body one day. Cardio second day. Full body 3rd ect.) and two days of rest. Now, I'm more for a Full body 4 days a week. Cardio 6 and then Rest/stretching on the 7th. (You are stretching daily mind you. But an Entire day dedicated to Doing different one's. Maybe do some Yoga) But what >>837864 said. Work your way up to it.

Wu practiced Tai Chi, and is self declared the king of /asp/ on the /asp/ meetup map. He claimed to have fucked up his leg by neurotically stretching, and then practicing Taekwondo some time after the leg thing. He posted the famous Wu gif in a thread on /asp/ dedicated to kicking, and then everybody made fun of him. Wu got doxxed after that, and he might've been doxed before that, and people made fun of his personal life, and then Wu declared that he wouldn't post under his name anymore. There was a flood of people posting under his name, especially shitposting, and then it's theorized that Wu committed suicide.

>>
>>855239
http://www.indygear.com/igfedora.html

It's a fedora. Like, an actual fedora, not the neckbeard trilby that gets erroneously referred to as a fedora. I think this might've been the one I owned, or is at least similar:

http://www.fedoras.com/shop-by-hat-brands/indiana-jones-hats/indiana-jones-last-crusader-fedora.html


Stetson is a brand of hat. They're best known for their various Western-style hats, but they do also make fedoras:

http://www.stetson.com/hats/fedoras

I fucking love Stetson, they make a good product. I've got one of their ten-gallon hats for when I feel like being a goofball and towering over everyone (I'm only 6'1", but a tall hat and tall boots make a huge difference).

Okay. The hat worn by Indiana Jones is a fedora-style hat. Indiana Jones fedoras have been licensed to the Stetson company in the past. Stetson is ubiquitous enough to be a generic term for cowboy and rancher hats (or, as I said, "Western-style"). This does not make Indiana Jones's hat a Stetson in the generic sense, though there were licensed replicas that were Stetsons in that they were fedoras manufactured by the Stetson company.
