Parkour Training: "Workout Journal- Entry #1"
Light Parkour Training In The Heat!
by Jonathan Tapp
Here is a light workout I did the other day. I was down in Austin with my girlfriend hanging out with some of her friends and family. I was cut for time and it was another extremely hot day out in Texas, about 110 degrees, so I avoided any type of circuit training. I didn’t want to get a stroke or something ha so I didn’t want to perform too strenuous of a workout. I needed somewhere close to train and luckily there was a small park right by the house I was staying. There was no extra weight involved in these workouts all purely body weight exercises.
I’ve been implementing a new rule lately with my workouts where I STOP when my pace slows down. So If I start to slow down on my rep speed I stop the exercise, break, and then continue with the next set. Doing this will actually help increase your muscle strength and size.
So when some of my reps are uneven, this is why.
Before the workout I performed about a ten minute warm-up.
In between each set and workout I rested between 1-5 mins depending on how my body felt.
Step-Up Jumps-This is where you step up onto a small ledge with one leg then jump, switch legs in air and land on the obstacle with the opposite leg, and then perform the same jump motion with that opposite leg off the obstacle.
1st set of 50
2nd set of 46
3rd set 0f 50
Pull-Ups- all the way from dead hang, no kipping, try to bring bar to chest
1st set 12
2nd set 10
3rd set 10
Hanging leg lifts- start with legs straight and down then lift them up toward your chest keeping them straight the whole time, try to touch feet to bar.
1st set 10
2nd set 10
3rd set 10
Box Jumps- up to about a 31/2 ft. box
1st set of 10
--Then I ran out of time
So I finished off with a nice stretch then went inside and drank a lot of water before I passed out in the horrible heat haha
