Funny Parkour Comment

So I was watching this video of these guys training for Parkour, just for kicks, and near the end they were training on some stairs by a gym…the last few seconds amused me, but it just amused me that they were getting a better workout making do with the environment than 95% of gym-goers. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X15VRzQHq2U&feature=related

It’s in the last few seconds.

Pretty cool. I’d like to see that done with heavy shit like logs.

There are a lot of video’s on Youtube about Parkour that are very impressive.

As in, guys free running while carrying logs? Hmm…it would be hard for sure. Though I personally don’t do parkour at all, I have lots of respect for the people that do…takes some serious talent and risk.

personally I would rather use the gym than put my hands in dog shit

I think I blow out an achilles every time I watch a Parkour video.

Very impressive, but those kids need to eat more. I kept wanting to shove sandwiches in their mouths.

Someone kindly explain to me the title of the thread. The video is called “strength training for Parkour”, and that seems more appropriate.
