Fredericksburg Ninja: Different health benefits of parkour
Parkour is without a doubt an athletic activity. It requires you to move and use almost every muscle in your body just to get from point A to point B. However, did you know that aside from being an exciting activity, parkour also has its fair share of benefits? If you’re eager to learn more, keep on reading!
As with any kind of exercise, parkour provides your body with several health benefits each of which targets a specific area of your life. To encourage you to take up this discipline, we have compiled some of the best health benefits of parkour down below.
It exercises the whole body
As was stated earlier, parkour requires you to utilize your entire body which means that it’s a full-body workout. This is equal to the exercise that you’ll be getting when you work out at the gym but with parkour, you’ll be able to see different places and it’s more exciting.
Getting full-body workout results in better stamina, stronger bones, boosted immune system and many more.
It improves cardio
Cardio is one of the most important things that you need in parkour. It’s responsible for letting you do the different tricks and moves you need to do to overcome different obstacles without getting tired.
Think of it as your gas tank, once it depletes, you won’t be able to continue with your training. Thankfully, consistently training parkour will significantly improve your cardiovascular health. This means that you’ll be more efficient in training and you won’t feel fatigued after.
It strengthens your bones
In parkour, you’d be dealing with a lot of impacts thanks to the different jumps, rolls and lands that you’ll need to do. Once you start becoming consistent with your training, these accumulated impacts will help you develop stronger bones.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should fully absorb the impact because this can also lead to injury.
It helps you think off of your feet
Because of the various decisions that you have to make in parkour such as when to step on next or plotting your route, your brain will be trained to be quicker and sharper. At first, it may seem like it’s only applicable in parkour but if you think about it, this trait will also help you in your everyday life, especially when you need to make important decisions.
It promotes creativity
Several people make the mistake of thinking that traceurs have random routes. What happens behind the scenes is that the creative juices of these people flow for them to plot their routes. This includes every step, leap, land and every move involved in parkour.
Also, creating a route will help you figure out different moves that you can use. For example, when you have a metal railing on your way, you can choose to either vault on top of it or go through the space in the middle. The possibilities are endless and it’s up to you how you’ll execute your route.
