Default Re: How are your hands

ive had ripped callousses and massive cuts, to the point where my hand was literally like a red bloody glove haha. Mostly happens on scaffold, but that was when i first started doing bar stuff.

Just have to keep going though, shame to waste a day and a travel card haha.

Once my mate joe had a massive gash in his hand, but he just kept training and it turned black. For months and months it just looked all black and gangrenous haha

My hands were awesome, I bailed a catpass straight onto my hands onto gravel/concrete. Not a scratch! No cuts at all.

But now I cant train for ages do to injury, my hands are going soft.

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.

I have noticed people get cuts on their wrists (you know the suicidal ones) from having their hands too close to the wall.

Just wanted to point it out.

My hands are good. I used to get callouses all the time but i think with time those areas of your hands just get mega thick skinned. My friend shot my we a bb gun in the palm a while ago though and after training climbups it turned into a blister and got ripped off. Not good . Teige your digusting. Allthough not as bad as when you ate that melted icecream off the floor outside odeon :shock: .

Gotta practise for when I'm unempolyed and out living on the streets..

The wrist cuts are a funny phenomena of parkour haha, they do look like self-harming scars, the strange thing is, I don't notice myself getting scraped there, and I don't see the cuts until after training, what about you guys?
