Your rest period will be catching 3 pokemon (don’t be lazy, catch them and jump back into the next round)
REPEAT ENTIRE WORKOUT AT LEAST 4 TIMES
Do your squats and lunges while holding something heavy, like a bar, with weighs on it 🙂 or a big rock, or anything that makes them harder.
Instead of single unders, do double unders.
Double the sets.
Goodmorning everyone! Today is going to be an easy day light cardio and lots of stretching. If you have been following our Pokemon GO exercises then you should be a little bit sore by now, especially after yesterdays workout Over 9000. But don’t worry! We wont be doing anything crazy:
By now, you should have at least one Lure Module or Incense left and we’re going to put that baby to good use.
Hello everyone! We know that just starting out in Pokemon GO can be a little confusing, but fortunately for you we have been screwing around with it since the first day of release and have figured out some pretty good tricks when it comes to catching your favorite Pokemon!
Incense are pretty straight forward, you click on “Items” then just click on the incense. After that, you will see a little pink ring around your character that attracts Pokemon for 30 minutes!
The Incense stays with your character no matter where you go, while the Lure Module attached to a Pokestop and attracts Pokemon for everyone around you!
But how do you use a lure module? The first day that I had the game, I sat beside a Pokestop jamming my finger onto the Lure Module, cursing my cell phone for being a big piece of crap. Turns out, I was just going about it in the wrong order. The tips in the game don’t even tell you how to use them.
After combing the internet (this was the first night it was out) and not finding anything, I sat down and stared at my screen for a while and finally figured out how to use a lure module:
Yep. It’s that tiny little white button right there (without a label or anything) that lets you install the lure module. You’re welcome 😉
So we know how to install them, but where is the best places to install them?:
Where another lure module already is
Where there are lots of people (don’t worry, multiple people can catch the same Pokemon!)
Where lure modules will overlap (like the picture below)
If you only have one lure module and there aren’t any up close by, go ahead and ask another trainer if they want to install a lure module close to yours so it benefits everyone! Making friends! Heck yeah!
Please go ahead and take a look at that. It turns out people are still not using good situational awareness. In the news today two teens were trying to catch Pokemon at 2 in the morning and were robbed, one was even stabbed. You have to pay attention to where you are going and the people around you!
Good morning everyone! So. I’m making a few changes to the website, primarily the name. From now on this website will be known as Active 8-Bit (the 8-bit part paying homage to the original Nintendo Entertainment System and the Gameboy which ran on 8-bit processors).
There are two reasons behind my decision to change things around a little bit :
I’d like to focus on things and games other than Pokemon GO.
The name PokeFitness is super cool and I love it, but the more research that I do into the Pokemon name and trademark, the less I wan’t to have that headache one day (and I didn’t really expect this website to blow up like it did). I also briefly talked with the Video Game Attorney Ryan Morrison who told me the name probably isn’t the best idea.
I’m not at a place in my life, nor will I ever be, to get caught up in a trademark lawsuit against a multinational organization with unlimited money. I’m just a lil ole’ Donut that want’s to help people get into shape.
I figured it’s best to make this change early on this websites life, so welcome to Active 8-bit!
Pokemon GO Workout 7/14/2016: Pokeblitz (Competitive Team Challenge)
Good morning everyone! If you didn’t see the post we put out earlier about having a back up cell phone battery to make your adventures last longer go ahead and check it out here.
Today is a special day for us here at Poke Fitness because we will be doing today’s workout with WSPA News 7! They did a little segment about us on their website a few days ago, but decided it would be best to come do some workouts with us.
I’d like to call this one the Pokeblitz. It’s a fast paced, competitive, team exercise with lot’s of Pokemon catching! (If you don’t have a team, don’t worry! just scale it down for yourself)
Cell phone with Pokemon GO
An area with lots of Pokestops Lure Modules (optional)
This is just an outline, modify it to your needs, just keep that heart rate up!
For this workout location I chose a local park that has 4 Pokestops! You need a home base, ours is the gazebo in the big circle on the top right. I’m going to use Lure Modules on the Pokestops to make this workout faster paced (meaning the Pokestops will lure in more Pokemon!).
For our warm up, we are going to do a good group stretch and then walk around the park a few times to stock up on Poke balls if we need to. Tip: the average refresh rate on Pokestops is around 5 minutes.
Split all players into even teams
Each team starts at home base (we put ours across the park from all the Pokestops. Cardio! Yay!)
Team members can’t be more than 6 feet away from each other. They must stick together.
When Pokeblitz starts, each team can go wherever they want inside of a designated area. Our designated area will be the fence surrounding the park.
Each person on a team must catch 7 pokemon.
When someone catches a Pokemon, they must do 5 burpees.
Once each person catches 7 pokemon, the team returns to the base and each member does 20 burpees.
First team done with everything wins.
Embrace the burpee.
If a team is moving, they must buddy carry each other.
