Now that /asp/ has been resurrected as /xs/, it's time for a parkour thread. I've been getting back into parkour the last couple months and I have to say I missed it as much as I missed old /asp/. Where are you at with your training? How have you been working around the lockdown chains of Corona-chan? How much do you apply the utilitarian Hébertist mindset of being strong to be useful to your training routines?

I guess freerunners can post, too. Maybe even gymnasts and trickers if you don't get your own thread up and running.

This is very helpful. I want to start with the basics, so, dropping, rolling, mantling, easy jumps and some more rolling, as that is what's actually applicable. My idea is to start off with 2-3 units focused entirely on this stuff and then doing an exercise here and there and try going outside, once winter is over.

>I am the sword, deadly against all weapons. Neither spear, nor poleaxe, nor dagger can prevail against me. I can be used at long range or close range, or I can be held in the half sword grip and move to the Narrow Game. I can be used to take away the opponent’s sword, or move to grapple. My skill lies in breaking and binding. I am also skilled in covering and striking, with which I seek always to finish the fight. I will crush anyone who opposes me.[1] I am of royal blood. I dispense justice, advance the cause of good and destroy evil. To those who learn my crossings I will grant great fame and renown in the art of armed fighting.

No whuffos allowed.


Current news:
Looks like the son of VP of the USPA has broken some rules, as well as his ankles when he took bachelor contestant Rachel on a tandem skydive.

Dumb fuck did a low turn on final and fuckin smashed his shit up.

Surprisingly the USPA will probably let him keep his tandem rating even though he’s a 20yo retard who’s mom owns a DZ and is on the board for USPA

nepotism for sure

I've been thinking about MTBing a lot lately, and why it isn't a part of the recent surge of popularity of action sports like skateboarding, bmx, skiing, and snowboarding. I think it's because of the skill wall that mtb requires. In a team sport you can edit the rules to be more fair to beginners, most mountain resorts are filled with green and blue runs, you can go small and skate/bmx safe step off features. But in Mountain Biking their is no green circle run, their is rarely a beginners feature. You either can or cannot make it down the trail, and an overwhelming majority of people can't. In that sense the skill wall is what makes mtb seem so crazy and out of this world, you're very much born with the senses and reactions needed or you aren't. My dad wanted to be a mountain biker so bad but he has always been a poser, thinking back to when I was a kid and he'd force me to ride trails with him, it was so pathetic, neither of us had that innate ability or balance to do anything so we would always be the bike walking slow assholes that watch everyone else zoom by. I'm glad thats over and I don't have to pretend to be a mountain biker any more, skiing is just so much easier, it's 1000x easier.

Basically you have to be born with the right set of balance and confidence AND nurtured in a mtb environment to even been a semi successful mountain biker. Over all that's probably a good thing and why the MTB community is so tight knit, imposters and posers can't get in.

>rear shock
really? I though fox float were good. for the price and specially the current one being sold it seems a good choice for first FS mtb.
>>
>>70436
What riding are you planning on doing?
If you are doing xc or down country it's fine. Riding Enduro or trail or downhill or dirtjumps. Personally I would get a beefier bike, the fox is okay, but i don't think it has high speed or low speed compression adjustment. Can you get volume spacers for it? Or do you just pour oil into the air chamber. There's a lot of stuff you want to know, I suspect a cheaper shock lacks many features.
>>
>>70436
Looking at the x fusion 02 pro rl that the bike is specced with it's good enough. It has compression adjustment, and a climb switch. I personally would want a cane creek double barrel air.

I already have pic related, but for those that want to go mtb with a FS (which honestly, imo it's the best way, traction, safety and comfort is way better than on HTs) I assumed that gt is a quite good bike for the price. I know it's expensive, but when I looked at diamond back bikes I figure that sensor 140/130 with modern geometry and dropper is simply all one need to go mtb besides gloves and helmet.

>>70630
>I personally would want a cane creek double barrel air.
Do you think that shock would be way better than the one I have on my bike atm? Wish it had space for a coil shock but it's quite good the way it is for me. I'd have to test more bikes, but I'm not a particularly good rider anyway to notice much.
>>
>>70676
I think that the cane creek double barrel would be good for you if you know or are willing to learn how to setup your suspension. Because it has high and low speed compression and rebound adjustment setup is tricky. it may be better to get a more basic shock/popular shock. The one you have is fine, if it works for you then keep it.

Scubanon here. I haven't been in a while. But as far as the "Americas" go most spots are the same. Going outside the U.S is where the real fun begins. But if you absolutely have to, I would say Florida and the Carolina's. Outside the U.S, The cayman islands, Jamaica, Bahamas and Puerto Rico are among the best.

Oh yeah and as for tips, BRING A BUDDY. I know it sound gay but trust me. You will have much more fun and feel more safe. Don't hold your breath, Don't panic, practice clearing your goggles, and don't die.

im sick of the hat inland diving gets. there are thousands of incredible places to dive that dont require you to lug your gear onto an airplane. check with your local dive shop and see if they have any recommendations for dive spots in your area. i live around the great lakes so im spoiled for choice. one word of advice i can give is to keep learning and find have at least two people to buddy with or join a group. once again a dive shop can help with this

These guys have totally maintained dueling culture just without the lethality (usually). The point is to endlessly dispute inscrutable points of honor and ancient grievances. The fighting is just to prove that you aren't a bitch and the grievance still matters to you. It will never end.

>What is sports climbing?
Sport climbing is a form of rock climbing that may rely on permanent anchors fixed to the rock for protection, in which a rope that is attached to the climber is clipped into the anchors to arrest a fall, or that involves climbing short distances with a crash pad underneath as protection.

It's lacking in cardio and it's an easy sport to injure yourself with (dangerous injuries can definitely be avoided and the regular ones can easily be rehabilitated so long as you did a bit of research on those) but aside from that it's amazing, my advice would be to train mobility on top of your climbing as soon as you start
