Today I Played With Cartwheels

Welcome to my first post on my parkour blog! I wanted to start this blog as a kind of journal about my parkour training. So, since I trained today, I thought I would start by talking about a specific skill that I played around with today, which were cartwheels!

Last night, I watched an old video of me doing a cartwheel. Actually two. I wanted to see what the difference was between a fast one and slower one. I noticed that with the slower one, my feet looked as if they had touched in the middle and then came apart again. I thought, "Hey! Now that's something I want to intentionally do and see what it's like!"

With a cartwheel, you're basically supposed to starfish the whole way through. Feet touch in a round-off, not a cartwheel. That doesn't mean it cannot be done. Honestly, it doesn't really feel much different, but it was a thought that I had in my mind after watching an old video of mine. So of course, I had to try it!

I like playing with different skills because that's how you improve them, learn new things, and keep your training interesting.
