Indoor training for Parkour

Today it was raining cats and dogs near my place, so I decided to take that opportunity for Parkour indoor training. What did that entail?

Well, I started with some running. There are about ten  meters from my door to my kitchen, and I ran them back and force a few times at sprint speed as my burst training, important for starting a run at top speed. I continued with about 40 push-ups, at 10 per interval and walking between them to gather my strength. Then I did some more sprints from door to kitchen, and ended by training on my percision jump.

So to sum up: upper body strength, burst and a little bit of technique.

Not bad for an evening where I was tempted to pause training. Tomorrow is meant to be my heart/lung training though, so I really hope it will stop raining. If not, I’ll have to figure out how to give myself indoor aerobic training. Should be interesting!

    Suggestions:
    1. Jumping rope for indoor aerobic activity. I do 5 sets of 30 seconds jump, 30 seconds rest.
    2. Get a bar and do pullups (aka chinups) for upper body strength. It involves different muscled than pushups, and may be a bit more relevant for parkour.
