Parkour Solutions Virtual Guide

Practice makes perfect

Parkour is all about creative moves, physical control and interacting with your environment. The best part about the sport is that you can start it anywhere and at any time. And you don’t need any previous sporting ability either. You begin with small, simple actions, repeating them to progress to more challenging and complex moves. However complicated the moves, the motivation is the same – the main aim of parkour is to have fun.

The principle of moving from simple to challenging is shown in the videos by Lappset’s virtual guide. Each training video starts with a basic exercise before moving on to harder moves and then to a complete series of moves. The videos show what users of the equipment should concentrate on and what not to do using clear visual signs. As well as the basic moves, the virtual guide also takes you through an extensive initial warm-up.

Parkour as in many other sports, a proper warm-up is an important part of the exercise in order to prevent injuries. Warm-up your muscles and stretch properly before exercising.




Precision jump can be done from one bar to another. Step on the bar standing on the balls of your feet, jump upwards and forward. At the end of jump land on the other bar on the balls of your feet, with your legs stretched so that you land smoothly.

  • Check the bars beforehand in case they are slippery.
  • Start with short jumps on the ground and test leaping different distances.




With the underbar you can slip under bars or pipes or inbetween them. Run, jump towards the obstacle feet first so that the feet go between the bars. At the same time, grab the upper bar and pull yourself through the obstacle.

  • Jumping with your feet first may be difficult in the beginning. Practise by going through big enough holes.
  • Climb and sit on the lower bar and take a hold on the upper bar. Pull yourself carefully through the obstacle.




With this vault you can pass obstacles conveniently by using your hand and foot. Place your hand and opposite foot on the obstacle and lift the other leg between them.

  • The foot that goes between the hand and foot on the obstacle touches the ground first.
  • Try balancing on your hand and opposite foot on a low obstacle.




Wall run allows you to climb onto high walls. Run towards the wall, jump up in front of the wall with one leg, place other leg on the wall and step upwards along the wall. Grab onto the top of the wall with your hands and use both legs and hands to climb on top of the wall.

  • Test with your foot how slippery the wall is. Climbing on top of the wall after the wall run may be very difficult and requires lots of practice!
  • Jump up on wall at low speed without grabbing the wall with your hands.




Tic tac allows you to change direction by using a wall. Run diagonally towards a wall, jump up with one leg and push away from the wall with the other leg. Turn during the jump so that your knees, as well as your toes, point to the running direction when you land. Land softly.

  • Check whether the wall is slippery. You can try to land accurately on any obstacle.
  • First practise with sloping wall or with straight wall in a motionless position.




With lache you can jump from a bar to another using only your hands. Increase your swinging motion by moving your legs backwards and forwards. Jump when your legs are in front, pull hard backwards with your hands and let go. Grab the other bar and straighten your arms slowly.

  • It’s important not to land on the bar with too straight arms, in order for you to be able to slow the movement down correctly.
  • Practise the swinging movement and do small jumps to the ground from a low bar.




With the cat leap, you can land inorder to hang onto a wall. At the end of the leap place your feet on the wall and grab onto the top of the wall with both your hands. Your feet should touch the wall a little before your hands. Bend your knees enough to make a soft and silent landing.

  • Test the wall beforehand because it may be slippery.
  • Try hanging on the wall in the right position. Start with small leaps.
