Once I had an idea: What would happen if I tried to do 10,000 repetitions of 5 different body-weight activities in one year? Push-ups, pull-ups, squats, handstand (10k seconds in handstand), and bar-to-bar precision jumps. This series is the answer.
I’m going to try to do 100 consequtive days of getting in a good training session- something. anything. With a public post to keep me honest and on track.
In late 2016 I began a small discussion with a few friends about an idea.
How, exactly, did I get to where I am now? The “My Journey” series covers all sorts of things — this series is just about physical and health changes I’ve made.
There are a few health-related blogs which I recommend very highly. A Good Look at Good Health is one of the better ones I’ve found. I’ve posted some excerpts here of his posts which I’ve found most interesting.

A collection of thoughts on how and why to travel in the context of Parkour. This series is in a more philosophical and psychological vein. (There’s another series about the nuts and bolts things, tips and tricks about traveling.)
This series explans how to build with pipe scaffolding (“scaf”) and pipe clamps. In the Parkour world, more and more people want to build things to train and play on. When I started building with scaf I had to do a lot of learning by trial and error. This is the series I wish I could have found on day one.
There are a few health-related blogs which I recommend very highly. Whole Health Source is one where you should, basically, read everything he has ever posted. But, a few of the posts are just so awesome — or are great “gateway to getting interested” posts — that I’ve posted some excerpts here.
A series of posts chronicling my studying this book containing 90 short sections; It’s a large, open-ended collection of ideas and vignettes on Parkour.
A collection of my thoughts and ideas about the physical things which make light-weight travel easy– or at least possible. Maybe even fun.
What is my ideal weight? How do I optimize my weight? Is there something better than just weight that I can optimize?
