Ja tis all about using your body as one unit rather then sepperate bits

More muscles = mora POWA* and more POWA* = easier to to muscle ups

You have to make the difference between what is useful and what is not in emergency situations. Then you'll know what is parkour and what is not. So if you do acrobatics things on the street with no other goal than showing off, please don't say it's parkour. Acrobatics existed long time ago before parkour.

actually..... when watching teg's example of a climb up he says to pull using your arms first then use your feet... He says you should pull your chest away from the wall and then use your feet to bring yourself back into the wall. I know this only one persons technique but i got to say tegs climb ups are extremely good.

yeah man easily, just keep trying and you will get further than you ever thought possible, i remember seeing this precision that chase did and thinking i would never do it, 2 months later i looked at it and suddenly it seemed a hell of alot more do able and i did it.

just persevere and you will improve and push limits you never thought possible for yourself

For the split-foot technique on SDC, is it the bigger the split, the more distance I can get?

Or shall I just keep my "split" at a comfortable distance.

If you split too much you'll end up going off one foot and barely getting any power, if you dont split enough you lose momentum, just find a good balance that's comfortable for you.

It's just a matter of practice, I spent one solid hour, first walking and taking off with one foot, then jogging, then running and finally sprinting. The split is the secret into transitioning the running power/speed and into effective transfer to the upper and rest of the body into the vault.

you mean the bottom of your shins like where your ankles are nearly??

You gotta grab your knees, either the front of them or behind. Whatever feels most comfortable.

I think that if you find your tuck isnt working then you are probably spinning way too early, try delaying the spin for a tiny bit more i.e jump UP and get more height before you spin.

also just practise tuck jumps to get your tuck good
