Pokemon GO Workout 7/17/2016: Stretch it out

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.

Gear needed:

Cell Phone with Pokemon GO

One Lure Module or Incense, the things that attract Pokemon (Check out our post on how to use Lure Modules and the best places to put them)

Workout:

  1. Run/ walk for at least 20 minutes, catching Pokemon as needed.
  2. Stretch or do a Yoga routine at a Pokestop overlap for at least 30 minutes. Keep your phone in front of you to catch Pokemon as they pop up.

Pokemon GO Workout 7/16/2016: Over 9000!

Good morning and welcome to your daily Pokemon GO workout everyone! Today we are going to do something sloooow and steady. Now this one might take a few hours, but you will probably meet some new friends in the process or if you live near a Ripley’s Believe It or Not location you could win $5,000 from just playing Pokemon GO. If you are worrying about battery life, just remember that there are tons of cheap power banks out there.

IF YOU ARE NEW to Pokemon GO, the other day I put together the most important post on this website: 5 tips on how to not die while playing Pokemon GO

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!

Other Pokemon GO news today:

2 guys caught a dude with attempted murder warrants while playing Pokemon GO
Milford man with warrants tries to catch some Pokemon near a police station where the police recognize him
Two Pokemon GO players find dead body in San Diego Park (isn’t that like the second time this week someone has found a dead body?)
Two Pokemon Players jump the fence into the Toledo zoo to find Pokemon

Onto the workout!

Like we said, today is more about slow, steady, and enjoying yourself! Stock up on Pokeballs and Incense for today’s workout.

Gear Needed

Cell phone with Pokemon GO
Back Pack with snacks and water. Our favorite snacks for long journeys are Cliffbars
Rucksack (optional)

Workout
This is a simple, but possible long one:
Walk/bike/ or ruck until completion of:
Catch Pokemon, doesn’t matter what they are, until their collective CP is over 9000.

cp

This may require a little addition on your part so round up to tens or hundreds if you need to! But don’t stop until you are over 9000.

Variations:
My favorite thing of course: take a rucksack with you
If you get over 9000 too quickly, add another 9000 onto it. Over 18,000??!?!?

Pokemon GO Workout 7/15/2016: Stop, drop, and workout

Pokemon GO Workout 7/15/2016: Stop, drop, and workout

Yesterday was awesome! We worked out for WSPA 7 news by doing the Pokeblitz! Today is going to be a little bit more cardio oriented (specifically running)

This should be you on today’s workout


Gear needed:
Cell phone with Pokemon GO
Ruck (optional)

Workout:

  1. Find an area with a few Pokestops. The park I showed you yesterday would be perfect for this because some of the Pokestops are separated by a slope.
  2. Stretch your legs and arms for a good 10 minutes.
  3. Spin your first Pokestop.

For each Pokeball you get = 5 x pushups

For each Potion you get = 5 x 4 count mountain climbers

For each Raspberry you get = 5 x 4 count jumping jacks

For each Revive you get = Plank for 10 seconds

Sprint/run/ruck to the next Pokestop, spin, and repeat until you have hit 10 Pokestops.

You can only rest while you are catching a pokemon.


End of exercise:

Do as many sit ups as you can in 5 minutes

 

Yay! You did it!

Pokemon GO Workout 7/14/2016: Pokeblitz (Competitive Team Challenge)

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.

Today’s workout is a doozy, especially considering that it could get up to 97 degrees today so STAY HYDRATED! LET ME GO AHEAD AND SAY THAT AGAIN: STAY HYDRATED! Soda is not hydration.

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)

GEAR REQUIRED:
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.

RULES

  1. Split all players into even teams
  2. Each team starts at home base (we put ours across the park from all the Pokestops. Cardio! Yay!)
  3. Team members can’t be more than 6 feet away from each other. They must stick together.
  4. 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.
  5. Each person on a team must catch 7 pokemon.
  6. When someone catches a Pokemon, they must do 5 burpees.
  7. Once each person catches 7 pokemon, the team returns to the base and each member does 20 burpees.
  8. First team done with everything wins.


Embrace the burpee. 

Alternatives:

If a team is moving, they must buddy carry each other.

If a team is moving, they must bear crawl.

Catch em’ all!

Good morning everyone! Welcome to 7-12-2016’s PokeFitness workout.

I woke up this morning to boot my computer up and saw that people everywhere were tweeting about having sore legs from Pokemon GO and thought “holy crap, that’s awesome!”. People are accidentally exercising, how friggin cool is that!!

So why don’t we go ahead and make those legs a little bit more sore! Yay, lactic acid!

Cell phone with Pokemon GO
Ruck Sack (optional)
Bicycle (optional)

Exercise:
Jog/ walk/ ruck/ bike until completion of:
Catching 20 Pokemon, regardless of what they are
(don’t worry, you can always send them back to the professor for more Pokecandy!)

Every time you catch a Pokemon that you already own, do 10 air squats and 10 lunges (10 lunges each leg)
Every time you catch a Pokemon that you don’t own, do 20 air squats and 20 lunges (20 lunges each leg)

End of exercise: Whatever the CP of the 20th Pokemon you catch, plank for that long in seconds. Example: the CP of the 20th Pokemon I catch is 120, I’ll plank for 2 minutes straight!

If the CP is too high, just try to get there! The burning is a good thing!

MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING PROPER SQUAT FORM. Also, STRETCH before doing this workout or it’s gon’ hurt! 

Barny style:
