    What is your experience? Is it better to do for example 12 squats, 12 push-ups, 12 pull-ups, etc… and repeat this group a few times, or to do 3×12 squats in a row and then move to the next exercise? I’m a bit confused about it.

    Thank you for this website, it’s really useful!

      Hi Gyorgy,

      It really depends on what you’re trying to achieve. The first option is, in my opinion, better because you get more muscles in the exercise with less pauses between reps. While you do your squats your upper body has time to recover and vice-versa. So I suggest finding a good routine that alternates upper body conditioning with lower body conditioning.

      After a full cycle, don’t forget to take a short break (30 sec – 1 min) before starting the routine again. You don’t want to exhaust yourself before seeing the results.

    Thank you! It seems i’m not as stupid as others said :D
    It’s quite a new sport to me, but i really enjoy it. Hopefully i can be more flexible later so I’ll able to use my body as i want :)
    Thanks again!

      It’s fine Kyle, I am glad I can help.

      You should not worry about not having proper technique training, as 80% of Parkour is conditioning training. A lot of people miss this aspect and focus on technique, ignoring in large part the conditioning behind it. This can lead to injuries and accidents, so you are actually doing it right.

      If you really want to progress in your technique, learn to make your own parkour obstacles or if you feel like it’s no use, you should read about giving up in Parkour.

      There are always ways to train, like finding a wall and discovering ways to move using it or just try to go into some tricking/flips if you have a patch of grass in your backyard.

      Don’t try to imitate moves you see on Youtube. You most probably do not have the obstacles they have. Find your own way and train according to YOUR environment.
