I just happen to be African and Native American and, with some exceptions, our races have trouble gaining massive amounts of muscle mass.

Well, I guess a pygmy isn't going to be as strong as a Tongan.

We were doing bodybuilding, but that's not the point here. Really. Other than the fact I have issues with metabolic blocks, many of the positions I held don't let me go to a gym and I can't afford gym equipment either so bodybuilding is out of the question for a while. Thing is I don't want to buff up. I want to stay lithe and physically strong enough to do parkour, not the 'strong man' that cultures are trying to push on me to be becuase I'm not that type of athletic. Saying that a healthy male specimen is someone who is buff enough to lift twice their weight and more is absurd. I know bodybuilders who can't do what do I'm terms if 540 kicks, and full front flips becuase they are muscle bound and incapable of doing so. All I was trying to say was that it's unfair for this staffing agency to deny me office jobs just becuase I am male and even more so since I'm not the 'type' of male my society wants.

Parkour is awesome - and basically free.

Well, yes, society has a story that defines masculinity even though the majority of men aren't that kind of guy.

It's pretty awful having a job we don't like, and it's better for athletes to do less physical labour so they can do more training, so I hope you go ahead and upskill and start applying for suitable office jobs.

I actually had to look up the term pygmy and Tongan because I honestly thought they were a race of aliens from Star Trek or something, ****

I feel like such a dork right now, haha

And yes, that's what I love about Parkour, that and when you concentrate on just urban exploration and not really all the flashy flips and jumps, its actually amazingly practical and so energizing. Nothing beats that feeling of base jumping a 13 feet jump, landing perfectly with your tuck and everything after a wall-run that lasted a good few seconds. Its the closest to flying I can get without wings and plane lol!

True, I just need better transportation, my friend said I should invest in a motorized bike until I can afford all the payments I need for a car that's not in such terrible shape it wont be reliable. That way I can start applying for places outside of my area and still be able to get there without exerting so much energy.
