The One Thousand.

On Saturday 11th December, a small number of hardened athletes from Parkour Generations gathered at a gymnasium in south east London to find out if something was possible: one thousand muscle ups. Each.

Staying for only the first 8 hours and completing a mere 300 muscle ups, I can’t pretend that I had much more than a brief a taste of what the guys went through that day, but what I experienced certainly had a distinct and lasting flavour.

Blane talks of the dark places visited by those who took part. My recollection of the day is a little broken, and so are these words. If you take them and magnify them tenfold, it will perhaps give some indication of what happened.

Nice work Kiell! Read both accounts. Fascinating stuff. Such commitment. Uhmm...I´m drinking beers on the beach watching people surf in the sunset, which would be somewhere completely opposite of your experience. I think I´ll do a few push ups now to make myself feel better. There. All better.
