100 Sticks – Precision Parkour Training

100 Precision Jumps – Stick Them All

After seeing Kie WIllis do 100 sticks, way bigger and better than anything I can do,
it inspired me to see how many I could do, on just a small jump.

Started off overshoting loads, surprisingly easy to get to fifty, so just kept on going.
My form got better the closer I got to 100, and my quads did hurt, but it was nowwhere near as hard as I thought it was going to be.

True to form, the 5k run and 100 stair machine steps came straight after this, it’s like a warm down, I can do it no matter how tired I feel.
There’s no race, or attempt to better my time, I run it within what my body can handle, the stairs now are easy, all done switching and twisting from one side to the other.

Discovered this makes my ankles, calves and achilles strong, and gets the joints used to being twisted in different directions.
My calves never ache now, quads do, core does, but the rest of my legs keep on going.

Hope this stands me in good stead for The Rage.


How To Master The Creative Mind – Part 2

How to figure out what is holding you back creatively, how to deal with that and get it on your side again. How to train it to work for you, without hitting burnout.

How to trick your mind in doing what you want, using bribery and breaking things down into smaller pieces.

Learn how to be honest and admit what is holding you back, then you can start to retrain your mind. Use small rewards, something simple, or larger ones if you have a much bigger, long term project.

If you just say you will only do 5 minutes, the odds are you will do a lot lot more, and when you feel like you’re running out of steam, just stop.

How To Master The Creative Mind – Part 1

How to understand what the creative mind is and how it works, defining, and starting to think about how to train and make your creative mind do what you want, when you want.

A definition of what the creative mind is, how it functions and operates, and that once you know this, you can train it and get it to do what you want.

It’s split between conscious and unconscious. Creativity is less in words and more in feeling and emotion, like a whisper, not the chatter of the conscious mind.

Life events can knock it off it’s stride, so be ready for that.
But it can be trained, disciplined, but it also needs rewards and a break so it can be in good enough shape to do what you want when you want.
