Any parkour gurus out there?
I'd like to dive (excuse the pun) into parkour a bit. I live in a suburban area, so obstacles are few and far between. It's winter now, so I'd like to do some indoor strength/endurance training until the sunnier days arrive. Any tips or suggestions? Anything you've got to suggest is appreciated.
From your brief question, I assume you have some experience running. As such, during the winter I would keep up whatever running "base" you have, and focus on the strengths that running will not prepare you for (jumping, climbing, etc.).
I would suggest a General Physical Preparedness (GPP) program like Crossfit. In fact, Jesse Woody, one of the founders of American Parkour (APK) (http://www.americanparkour.com/... ) is a big booster of Crossfit.
Daily workouts can be found here:
Both APK and Crossfit have active message boards, so they can likely answer follow-up questions for you.
