Parkour General Thread Anonymous 06/23/14(Mon)19:50 UTC+1 No.438096 Report

Im a pretty big guy, 22 years old, 5'11 and packing at 185 of mostly muscle. Im thinking about getting into parkour, and was wondering if is nothing but a dream and i should give up due to my size. I can lift myself up, and most vaults i can do without trouble (look like shit though.)
Tell me guys, is my size going to prohibit me from doing it?

>tl;dr big guy mostly muscle wants to do parkour. Possible?

sure you can,
you just gotta run alot before you`re in good shape to parkour like a pro, but that`s how everybody starts

I even saw a movie where a big guy did parkour, i think it was called district 13
[spoiler]it was a french movie[/spoiler]

depends on how good your cardio already is,
how long and how far can you run?

Stop being a faggot and just try it. You can't do anything if you sit back and ask yourself and everyone around you if you can do it.

look online for the running schedule for couch to 5km,

in 10 weeks you should be able to run about 30 minutes. If you still feel like going for it then you can continue.

It`s a slow way to start tho, but it`s a good way to start running and make it a habit

Why start with generic cardio workouts when you can just start doing parkour and let your body adapt?

If you wanna play electric guitar, you don't really need to learn the basics on an acoustic to "prepare yourself" first.

Just fucking start and you will get better.
