Parkour workout routine
A lot of times we don’t have the time or the weather to go out and train in Parkour outside. For those of you stuck indoors here is a very good exercise routine to keep yourself strong by conditioning at home:
Press-Ups – This workout trains the triceps and the pecs. It’s the perfect exercise as both a warm-up exercise and strength building routine.
Clap Press-ups – Adds explosiveness to the regular Press-Ups movement. This trains your muscles to react faster. Remember to return to the same position. Don’t arch your back when doing this, it’s better to do less repetitions than a lot of bad ones.
Feet Up Press-ups – This exercise works the biceps. You can do them rapidly to improve your explosive strength or slowly to improve your resistance.
The V-Sit – It is a perfect workout for your core/abs. It means that it works all the muscles necessary to have a perfect stance when training in Parkour. This should be done until exhaustion.
Sit-ups – Pure core muscles training. Place your feet under a couch to have a better anchor to the floor.
Leg lift sit-ups – Abs exercise. Maintain your feet up and static. Move only your upper body. The stance is moreÂ important than the number of repetitions.
Parkour stretch (Cobra) – Works the arms and back. This is very good as a last exercise to warm-down after you finished all the other routines.
Handstand push-ups – This develops your upper body strength and balance. This exercise can also be done separately from the previously described routine, as an individual exercise.
