The Debrief: PKGen Questions...Shaun Wood
The Debrief this week meets the final third of Team Farang based in Thailand. Shaun Wood is a talented Traceur originally from Australia who helped us launch Parkour Generations Asia on a rooftop high above Bangkok back in February.
How long have you been a Traceur?
I am have training for 7 years :)
What movements are you currently working on?
At the moment I have gone back to training some of my fundamentals to improve my technique and build power.
What percentage of your training is conditioning?
I spend a bit of time in the gym, so I would say 40% conditioning and 60% movement
Favourite conditioning exercise?
Bench press or push ups. Because I like seeing my chest get bigger haha.
Who or what is your biggest influence?
My team would be my biggest influence. I am absolutely blessed to have two best friends like Anan Anwar and Jason Paul. We work perfectly together and they are an infinite pool of inspiration for me. If I am ever lacking motivation then one of them is there to pull me up and help me push forward.
A thai dish ka pow gai ( chicken with chili and basil )

Mainly listen to albums so:
Anything by Barnzy
Drake - Take Care
Mac Millers new mix tape Macadelic.
Item in your bag you couldn't go training without?

How do you approach breaking a jump?
I usually train similar jumps for a while until I know that I am capable of breaking the jump I am looking for.
One piece of advice to Traceurs just starting out:
Look after your body from the start. You only get one.
