Building blocks of tricking and parkour shortened.

July 13, 2008

Well, I made a post a while back called Building Blocks of Tricking, Parkour, And Martial Arts. Part 1, and Its a lot longer then it ends to be, so I want to summarize it here.

Parkour

1)Parkour is a great form of exercise, but that isn’t going to get you far if you don’t eat right, and sometimes training in a gym to get stronger, or build more endurance, is better then just doing parkour for it, mostly because it won’t be as hard on your body.

2)A lot of great traceur’s have very little in the way of serious injuries related to parkour. This is because they don’t do stupid shit. Basically, remember that the goal of parkour is to get from A to B as fast as you can, not to show off. Breaking bones and what-not also isn’t supposed part of it.

Tricking
1)In tricking, training in the gym and at home is very very important. Its pretty easy to hurt yourself enough to take you out of sports of a notable amount of time in tricking, and conditioning helps reduce the risk of that happening. condition three times as much as you trick, and you will be tricking for a long time.

Condition, diet, then train.

2)Don’t go overboard, working out for two hours a day every day and then spending an hour tricking afterward, it won’t help you. Remember, stop while your ahead, if you land a trick perfectly, do it a few more times, and then stop before you get tired. This way the correct form becomes more firmly implanted in your muscle memory. And don’t condition and trick on the same day if you can help it.

That’s all I’m putting in here, I think this explains the important parts better.
