I’m quite a bit behind on this bandwagon, but it looks like fun, especially since all the wall climbing walls near me were torn down after the trendiness wore off:

Training days in Helsinki

Note the training section on the “parkour.com” site. Insane videos. Mad skillz. To prepare yourself, here’s the drill:

  • Running – 20 Minutes, Three Times Each Week
  • Sit-Ups – 5 Reps of 30 ( But you can start by doing a series of 10 )
  • Flexions – 3 Reps of 10 Position a Chair Against Wall – 3 Reps of 1 Minute
  • Walking With Knees to Chest – 2 Bursts Of About 30 Metres
  • Hopping – Twice For Each Leg Across 20 Metres
  • Arm Hang – Four Reps Of 30 Seconds
  • Quadrupedie – Four Reps of 20 Metres
  • Gainages – Balance Against A Wall For 4 Reps of 20 Seconds And Hold
  • PK Circuit Training – Create A Circuit In Which You Can Do The Following Base Movements : ( Landing From Height, Cat Jump, Roll, Precision Jump )

    Flexions and Gainages I must admit I don’t know–did you check the site?
    Quadrupedie–walking on all fours

    How far have you gotten? Able to leap the gaps between the Nokia buildings yet? Super-efficiency! ;P
