Sorry I have been neglecting my blog, I have been out of the country for a while.
Something you have to start thinking about early in the your bboying life, if u want to continue and excell at it is taking care of your body. When your a young teenager your energy seems almost limitless, and your recovery from training only takes a very short amount of time. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS! Bboys are on a time limit like most atheletes, eventually your body will give out and you wont be able to perform at the level you once could. The people who are still dope from back in the day like poe one, kwikstep, storm etc. These guys keep hella fit and take care of there bodies, running everyday, giving enough resting time, stretching every day, eating right, drinking enough water.
One thing that can end a bboys career early is injury. In my twenties now i have managed to avoid serious injuries by some sort of miracle but I pritty much always have minor injuries, same as most bboys. But as you've been bboying for a number of years things you have worked on alot start to wear down, in particular knees and elbows... so for god sakes get some good quality protection so you can keep training and competing for years to come. Training smart and living healthy are the key. take care of yourself.
