Conditioning is key and should be regularly practiced (every to every other day ideally in my opinion), keeping your body strong and able to take strenuous movements.

My training, in general is Parkour specific, I run climb and jump, I do no other real exercise or sports except within my Parkour training.

I believe, through study and experience, that keeping exercise within Parkour situation will make me better at them and better suited to Parkour.

I practice Parkour as someone who believes there is something wrong with society and humans in general; who believes there is more to life than work and getting worried over the small things in life.

Human bodies are amazing and have the potential to do so much, we are too reliant on technology and I wish to be able to do all/anything with my body when/if it is needed.

I am not religious, I do not believe in God/ and Gods, but I believe there is something else, a spiritual side of things, an understanding you obtain when training your body and mind to an extensive degree, which is where the discipline comes in.

Through practicing movements as a part of my training with/for Parkour, occasionally I feel a sense of something different, sometimes a movement was finished before I even thought about it.

One example is when I was on a Tour, I clipped my feet on a simple vault, without looking or seeing I knew what was wrong with my feet, and why I fell, I was heading face first to the floor and then........
...........A movement 'happened' (for lack of a better word) and I was fine, no pain, no injury, ready to keep moving if needed.

I wish to understand this feeling and develop an inner-vision. An understanding of the global question, what is there, which, to me, is why the DISCIPLINE of Parkour is so important for my path.

The sense of achievement I feel from "creating" a movement is why I practice like this. Regular "don't touch the floor games", which force you to see new possibilities etc.

The opportunities to work on new movements in a given area is fulfilling, I'll hopefully make a small documentary about it soon showing examples of progression, but the above video shows how I train my body, focusing on spatial and body awareness.

Hope this aids your training, and give you an insight into what I see, and why.
