Parkour in the garden

Parkour in the garden - how?

Many people associate parkour with asphalt and the rough urban environment, but as experienced parkour practitioners, we have learned that it is SUPER GOOD to start most parkour exercises and parkour techniques on soft ground. Grass in the garden is perfect for this purpose.

But how do you train parkour in the garden? 

One obvious way is to use "Parkour blocks", which are a GREAT tool for all kinds of parkour exercises.

With parkour blocks you can, for example, train:

  • Precisions
  • Monkey Vault
  • Reverse Vault
  • Two-handed Vault
  • King-Kong Vault
  • Dash Vault
  • Kash Vault
  • Drop to Precision
  • Speed Vault
  • Lazy Vault
  • Simple Vault
  • Turn Vault
  • Tic-tac-to-precision (use a wall + a parkour block)
  • Handstand (use the block to balance on your hands and practice your handstand)

Just to name a few of the many ways you can exercise in the garden.

In addition to all these parkour techniques, you can also place the blocks differently and play "the ground is toxic" as a warm-up game. Here you can play it with your friends and you have to be on top of the blocks and not touch the grass.

In addition, you can also train on the parkour blocks in the garden

  • Balance ( Walk forwards, sideways, backwards, with your eyes closed or on your knees. The only limit is your imagination! )
  • Cat-balance (crawl like a cat on the blocks both upright and regular)
  • Pistols ( strength training )
  • Plyometric training where you jump onto the block(s)

The Parkour blocks are designed by us, you can buy them directly from Parkourshoppen - 

Can you use the Parkour Blocks indoors?

Yes, the parkour blocks can be used as parkour training in the garden, but they can also be used outdoors in summer and indoors in winter. 

Parkour blocks are the most purchased parkour equipment by private parkour practitioners, parkour clubs and parkour associations.

In the video at the top of this page, you can see some of the endless possibilities where you can use the parkour blocks in your training.

The blocks are used for parkour, freerunning, crossfit, boxing and other sports where you can use them in warm-up, play or during the training itself.

Where can I buy parkour blocks?

You can buy the blocks in Scandinavia's best and largest parkour webshop Parkourshoppen.
