In Parkour

November 01, 2006

PDF Article

Mechanics, consistency, and intensity are the three pieces of a complete foundation for a safe learning progression in any new endeavor. Many of the elements inherent in the gradual and progressive creation of elite general physical preparedness apply equally to the pursuit of more specific skills and goals, including parkour, the ability to navigate your environment functionally, confidently, and safely in a variety of situations.

This month, I have collected into a single reference document the fundamental parkour moves I discussed in greater detail throughout the past eight issues.

I intend this to serve as a kind of “getting started” reference manual for parkour, outlining a progression for learning proper technique that enhances both the safety and the efficacy of the movements when applied to the varied challenges you may face.

Very well done and meticulously built breakdown (oxymoron?)

My personal thoughts were to not allow myself to focus too much on the inter-step details; pure instinct, unhindered by the fractionally efficient and erronous thought process, is ingrained in us all. By stimulating and utilizing this meditative-like state I feel that we can better grow, and in a more self-unified fashion.. for parkour anyways ;)

It should go without saying that in order to tell whether or not you are consuming fewer calories than you are expending, you will need to track the exact amount of food that you are eating, as well as the exact amount of physical activity that you're performing on a daily basis.
