playhater wrote:Gyms are a much more efficient way of getting stronger Dave, in terms of body weight training/methode naturelle you may find the exercises more fun and they may well but I think this is the bottom line right here. You're coniditioning to get stronger... I assume, and being stronger to overcome obstacles more efficiently. So from this we can deduce that 'greater strength = increased efficiency' (there is a definite correlation until approaching extreme strength because of muscle mass etc). Going to the gym IS a faster way of gaining strength, weighted Bulgarian Split Squats and weighted standard Squats will get you stronger quadriceps (main jumping muscle?) than I'm pretty sure any outdoor workout that you can even think of and I'm fairly sure the same can be said for any muscle in the body presuming you do the correct excercise for the muscle you wish to enhance. For that reason I believe that going to a gym to get stronger will inturn make me more efficient in the area's you wish to be in a shorter time period and to be efficient is basically effictive/'none time wasting' and conditioning on the street is... Timewasting
Also training the other part of becoming more efficient would be to practice overcoming an obstacle because in practicing you learn how to deal with it in an efficient way and have a better understanding in general of how you could overcome said obstacle in a different scenario. Through practicing you learn and this learning gives you the knowledge to apply in different environments that you may not be familiar with.
To anyone this may concern, stop coniditioning inefficiently, train l'art du placement efficiently, If you don't think you're strong enough go to the gym and come back in 6 months x3 stronger than you would have been drilling climbups and doing push up circles
Also if I'm wrong and you're not conditioning to get stronger, don't read all of it!

[The implication of] That is simply not true! I can't believe you would say that. Since when are the effects of weight training short term? You could argue they are if the person stops training after a short (few months at most) time lifting weights that their body will slowly revert back to its original state, (the same is true with parkour) but we're not talking about stopping training in any sense.Dave wrote:Weights offer a slight physical advantage in the short term. If that's what you want then by all means use them, but Parkour is designed to develop lasting, long-term strength
