I have 1 track season left before I graduate, and after that I really want to spend my summer training HARD for Ninja Warrior. I'll likely start with NNL comps and eventually (hopefully) get on ANW. If not, I do have a few backup plans. Anyways, currently I'm lifting a lot and doing lots of pullups for Ninja Warrior training as well as for strength training for my running. When that's over, I want to focus more on mastering the skills of some obstacles while continuing to work on my grip strength and endurance. Here are some obstacles I want to know the technique to:
Salmon Ladder Flying Bar Spider Flip Warped Wall Jumping Spider (the jump seems difficult) Anything balance related A Crazy Cliffhanger Jump Vertical Limit Peg Boards Floating Boards A KILLER lache (for obstacles like Wingnuts, Jumping Bars, Crank It Up, etc.)
I would also like to know some tips for bouldering and parkour, since I'll be diving into those more. My goal is to finish my track season and then dive right into training (after some rest) so when I go to college I can try some obstacles (probably at Movement Lab San Dimas) and not feel too weak or incapable. Please let me know. Thank you!
Salmon Ladder: Watch Yusuke Morimoto on Stage Four this year, and Brian Burkhardt on Insta.
Flying Bar: Drew Drechsel.
Spider Flip: This one is hardly ever used so I wouldn't worry too much about it, climb up on the way to the transfer.
Warped Wall AND Jumping Spider: Can't really help. Just practice I'd say. You can either land legs first, arms first or both at the same time, I would start with the arms first but that's just me.
Crazy Cliffhanger jump: I'd say follow Jun Sato or Ryo Matachi's jump technique; but not Yusuke's because of how difficult it is to maintain a controlled swing without the lock.
Vertical Limit: Practice the hip thrust between boards. Just get comfortable shuffling back and forth on the VL before anything else.
Peg Boards: The honored Geoff Britten said it's easier to maintain one arm lockoffs at V's rather than L's so maybe try that, plus you get more length of reach vertically and about the same horizontally.
Floating Boards: Practice hanging off a door lol. The most important thing is using the feet and the sequence (reach, transfer legs, match). This isn't really too difficult but very taxing on the grip.
Lache: I'd suggest you watch Najee's Instagram, Kyle Soderman, etc etc... because they can generate an insane swing in just a couple of moves. On the first swing, jump up at bent arms and push out, kip backwards on the back swing, then lache just before you hit the apex of the swing on the last one.
