Parkour: Skill and Flow Greenlake Trees
More training with Dane and Tyson, this time around the tree's at greenlake supposed to be relaxed day of training cause we were all beat up from thursday and the rest of the weeks training. Thing Is I am pretty sure Dane doesn't know the meaning of light training.
Warm up: Run to bowl tree from house 300 meters. Stretch out, squats, push ups. Bowl tree route 10 times.
1. Tic to Branch Precision Bowl Tree 10 times 25 fails, best was three in a row.
This is the same branch and take off as the pop vault I have talked about struggling with being able to get both feet up on. Well today Dane immediately decided we should try to do it without bothering with the hands at all crazy Dane
. Surprisingly this helped us focus on the Tac better and we were immediately get a ton of height we all almost got it on our first try, and our second and continued almost getting it another 20 times or so. Finally Tyson got it then Dane then I.
2. Pop vault over branch 5 times
Same branch went to my hands between two branches vault throw very smooth feeling very cool to progress from not being able to pop onto the branch to being able to go all the way over. I came up with this one Tyson picked it up first try Dane took three tries.
2. Tree branch under bar 3 times
Standing on branch 6 feet up jump 6 feet across over a branch 8 feet high grab a branch 2 feet above that underbar through. Scary, fun not as difficult as you as the intiall impression. Tyson's challenge everybody got it first try
Combo:Tic to pop up vault over branch side vault along branch underbar.
Coming from the other side of the tree. Tyson's Challenge
Next area, henceforth to be known as the crazy tic trees.
1. Standing cat 8.5 feet to tree feet on truck hands on a branch 5
2. 8.5 foot precision 1.5 foot rise back 5
Doesn't sound to bad but this is freakin weird precision you have to stand in the crick of a tree between a limb and the trunk and its seeminly impossible to find a comfortable position to jump from either you to far back and have swing through and can't keep your footing or you feet like you about to fall forward plus there is nasty spike right next to your hip you have avoid. My shoes were gripping better so it was easy for me. I hit it every time took tyson about 5 tries Danes feet were slipping to much.
3. Tic tac to precision 10 times bunch of fails.
From the lower branch of the precision to the higher branch, multiple challenging things about this, can't see your landing when from the take off, weird angle, have to hit the side of the branch not the top or your foot can slip and twist your ankle.
4. Double Kong over two tree branches maybe two feet apart, 8 inch rise top portion was maybe 3.5 feet high. Not to challenging physically but a good place to grove a skill that I still have a descent amount of fear of.
1. Kong vault, two step punch kong precision, cat leap. 10 times approx
experimented with safety through the first tree too but decided it didn't flow as well for me. First kong is maybe 4.5 feet high enough to be challenging.
2. Run up tree two steps turn jump to underbar through next branch 3 times.
Hard to give this one justice just a weird and very explosive series of movements. First step was on fairly level bend in the tree then the tree starts going up at 60 degree angle or so and the second step is 3 feet higher on knot sticking out run and jump powerfully and accurately enough and you can spin on that knob and jump into underbar between two branches 3 feet away.
Dane came up with this and hit it first Tyson got it not to to long after I came over at that point and wasn't even close at first, slowly got closer and closer, had realize it wasn't a tic tac so much as literally running up the branch and I had to go as fast as I could out of three step run up. Typical Dane challenge.
3. Jump of tree branch diagonal along limb catch branch and underbar through gap. 3 times
More Dane challenges again I was stumped at first took 5 tries to start getting it another 4 or so before I got it right, required a huge push of and perfect controll of the direction in order to catch and swing your legs through.
Awesome training Day all of us had our moments but Dane threw Down some huge and difficult challenges for Tyson and I on our home turf stuff, we're going to need to work on, perfect big power and at the same time co-ordination moves. Huge fun.
Still need to get some Stamina parkour sessions in felt too beat up yesterday and thought I did today before we got all excited doing power stuff. Will rest tomorrow maybe skip parkour on monday then try to hit stamina next time I go out.
