ok so, i have been active my whole life with surfing, skateboarding etc etc.. but i have never in my life worked out... so roughly 5 weeks ago i started doing parkour. For those of you who dont know parkour is getting from a to b the quickest most efficient way possible using only the tools of your body and the obsticles in place. Parkour is a very physically demanding "lifestyle" (Traceurs (people who do parkour) dont like to call it a sport so i guess ill call it a lifestyle. Since it literally changed my life) because it calls for lots of upperbody strength.
Upper body strength is definatley my weakness when it comes to strength and my body. With that being said i have a conditioning/workout schedule that i will do every day to build up my upper body strength. The reason im making this thread is so i can keep myself in check for working out everyday.
I have progressed a lot in the last 5 weeks of working out, for example before i started working out i could do one push up, two on a good day. Now i can do 25 in one setting. I could only do 2 pull ups now i can knock out 8 before i have to start kicking my legs lol.
My Body: im 6' 3" 174lbs
My workout everyday (note i am mainly focusing on endurance and upper body strength): 500 jumprope (1 set of 200 3 sets 0f 100). 20 "step up" push ups (its where i start on a step andd i push up and jump to the step above it then come back down to the step below it). 50 Dips. 30 "pop ups" (where i pop myself up a roughly 4.5' wall in my back yard using just my arms). 15 "wall ups" (if you know what a muscle up is.. well its basically the second half of a muscle up over and over again.) And 3 sets of 4 pull ups. then a mile run at the end to build up endurance.
there it is please note i dont know any names for the workouts so what i called it could most likely be wrong haha. and i dont wanna do weights yet because i want to develop a muscle memory so i can pull myself up easily like on a wall or something.
so if you think i should add anything in my work out please let me know.
and i will update this thread with my progress.
Thanks for reading!
