IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Once you have the rope on hand, place the middle of the rope underneath the arch of one foot.
Stand straight up, pull the cable up vertically while holding the handles parallel to the ground, so their size is excluded from the measurement. The ends of the cables should be even with, or below, the bottom of your sternum.
Start with the rope behind you, pulling on your calves, your hands in front of you, and the cable end of the handles pointing frontwards. Then do an initial swing with your arms.
For a toe catch drill, swing the rope over your head once, then trap it with the front of your feet without jumping it. After that, try to jump over it just once, then catch it. Then do it twice, and catch it, and continue.
Don't forget to bring your hands back to the position near your hips.

Consider what you're trying to achieve.
Two heavy kettlebells are the next best thing to a bar and plates. A weight of between 20 and 24 kilograms (45 to 52 pounds) is recommended.
By using the kettlebells individually or together, you can focus on almost every muscle group by squatting, swinging, pressing, pulling, or pushing them.**
Two kettlebells might not be enough resistance for movements like squats and deadlifts. Some resistance or pull-up bands can increase resistance when you do "sumo-style" squats and deadlifts by looping one band around your wide-spread feet and through the handles of the kettlebells.
Add a wooden broom handle, and you have a wide range of new exercises. With a stick and a band, you can do many pulling exercises.

The concept of Parkour was thought of by a then-teenager named David Belle in a small place called Lisses, near Paris, France. His father, Raymond Belle was a hero fireman and acrobat. This was in the 90s, and the teenager was greatly influenced by Spiderman and Tarzan. His acrobatic ways made him a celebrity and created a huge fan following.
Parkour is a made-up word, cousin to the French parcours, which means “route.”
The world of climbing walls without stairs and jumping off rooftops without any rope or parachute is filled with risk, thrill and adventure.
It also has its own naming system. Someone practising parkour is called a ‘traceur’, someone who traces David Belle’s footsteps. A female traceur is called a traceuse.
