hey there, used to post on this forum a while back, but after getting a nasty case of plantar fasciitis i had to stop parkour, and thus posting here was too sad. anyway, the good news. yesterday i managed a 4hour walk up a mountain with no ill effects so i'm thinking maybe i'm cured... its been almost 2 years now so in the meantime i've grown fat and unfit. i'd like some training advice as to how to get back on the horse. obviously i need to go real slow and build up, 'cause my injury was probably due to overtraining, and a possible genetic predisposition. so basically i need to start again from scratch. any tips?
its always good to start light training or in fact any physical activity with yep you guessed it stretches this is so vital yet neglected so offen by so many people start at the top with your neck working downwards,a good stretch will not only limber you up it'll prevent injury or at least minimalise damage. i severly twisted my ankle last year its still not 100% but im sure it would have broken had i not streched as much.then obviously warm up with a few push ups a bit of running on the spot(i assume you'll be ok with that coz of the whole mountain walk) perhaps a few star jumps just to raise your internal temprature the body needs to be around 39 degrees to perform best. practice your balance ie walk on a line or low railing and your stealth (trying to move silently requires greater muscle control an surprisingly it is a skill that diminishes quite quickly) sorry to sound like a nag but diet is also important where your exercising more your body will need more food and the right kinds too! once you've gotten up to scratch with your basics try some simple climbing like trees or railings and practice your vaults then do a bit of sprint training then suddenly changing direction once your basic skills have come back practice your precision jumps. i say do jumps last because until your fitness and balance are back you have quite a higher risk of injury. hope that helps
