I just found this health related video on YouTube … and thought you might enjoy it!


For a full guide to this video, please visit: www.americanparkour.com Exercise equipment is not limited to your local gym or recreation center. It can be found anywhere and at any time. However, to see the equipment that is all around you, you must change the way you view your environment. As a traceur, you already have a head start on gaining this perspective; you see obstacles as opportunities for movement. A natural variation of this perspective is to also see obstacles as exercise equipment. An every day, common rail, bench, tree, or wall can all be turned into an incredibly versatile piece of exercise equipment. In this edition of Urban Exercise Equipment, we will explore the exercise possibilities of a basic rail.

    @ChaoticLightning when you do it you shouldnt go more than 90degrees since you will probaly stuff up your joints going to far

  16. InMythxGodIsForce says:

    @blakemman then you’re training freerunning. people who take it seriously and train hard understand the philosophical and deeper meanings of both.

    @kennyk2007 You can do exercise on mostly any age. Yeah babies can’t do exercise if you thought of saying a retarded comeback like that, but mostly any age can exercise. Also Exercising is not Boring, it is only boring if your Lazy, or not in a good condition. But don’t try to tell anyone what to do. And yes technically you are trying to tell them what to do.

  25. kennyk2007 says:

    You kids are too young for this kind of boring exercise..
    Look like old people practicing taichi.
