I’ve been watching a lot of parkour vids lately and I’m really impressed. Only problem is that the guys seem to be mostly skinny teenagers, which is fine (they’re adapted perfectly to their chosen sport). I, however, am not a skinny teenager. Even if I got myself super ripped I would still weigh north of 200 pounds.
So, do I have to give up my parkour dreams? I’m thinking I might have a shot if I take perfect care of my soft tissue and joints, eat a lot of supplements like chondroitin and MSM, train a lot of plyometrics to learn how to absorb shock, and get my bodyweight down as far as I can (which is around 215 realistically speaking).
Your thoughts on this?
