Here are Top Five points why Pokemon Go is your new fitness application

1. Physical Participation is required to visit PokeStops

As what you've heard, some couch potatoes are already enjoying the Pokemon Go experience outside of their homes. If you're fortunate to live in the City of Pokestops, then I think there's no need for you to walk and dropby in Pokestops. Walking is part of physical exercises. You may not know it but Walking can help strengthen the heart and lungs as it is a cardio-vascular exercise. Imagine if you're walking from one Pokestop to another, then how much calories are you gonna burn plus gaining some poke balls and some items? A lot!

2. Take the Battle at Pokemon Gyms

Actually, same with PokeStops, you need to go nearer to the Pokemon Gyms to join or participate on a Pokemon Battle. This will also need your physical activity. Walking with cautions is required.

3. Pokemon Eggs-hatching is the new Cardio

This is the exciting part. Pokemon Go has eggs hatching activity. Eggs are divided into three groups namely 2km, 5km and 10km eggs. Depending on their distance description, different kind of Pokemons will come out from those eggs. More powerful or big Combat Power Pokemons will surely come out from 10km eggs while lower-level Pokemons come frm 2 and 5km eggs. So, how to hatch these Pokemon eggs? You need to walk on a certain distance that fits your egg's description. Simply walk 2km to hatch that 2km eggs, 5km for 5km eggs and 10km for 10km eggs. Now, go and hunt some Pokemons while hatching your eggs!

4. Get the Jogger Medal!

Yes! Pokemon Go awards you some medals and one of the most "fitnesspired" medals is the Jogger medal. Whn you click on the avatar on the lower left of your Pokemon Go app, you can see the very first medal named Jogger. Click on it and see how far you have walked from a 100KM distance. Keep on walking while hunting Pokemons!

5. Get the Backpacker Medal!

Aha! While you are visiting a number of PokeStops, you can track how many of them you have already visited by checking on the Backpacker Medal. Once you reached 1,000 PokeStops then you can surely get this BackPacker Medal in no time. Just keep walking, do this simple exercise, visit those PokeStops and get the backpacker medal!

Top 5 ABS Exercises for Men Over 40

For Men Over Age 40, Here's a suggestions from Clark Bartram to get abs.

The first one is hanging leg raises, and this is going to work your abs of course, but it's also going to integrate the use of your hip flexors. For these, I'll usually do about 3 sets of 10-20 reps, whatever burns them out. Don't forget the key part of this - blow all your air out before you contract your abs and bring your legs up.

If you want to really isolate your abs and not allow your hip flexors to become integrated into the hanging leg raise movement, you can start with them already contracted and your knees raised, and then do a hard crunch with your abs to raise your hips up.

I also want to show you guys the proper way to do cable crunches - because most guys I see doing this are doing it incorrectly. You want to focus on the crunching movement from your sternum to your belly button. Most guys, when they're doing cable crunches.... They're really doing most of the work from their hips. To do this correctly, keep the cables right at your forehead, and like I said - just focus on that sternum to belly button movement.

We can also stay on the cable machine so that we can do side cable crunches and really work on those extra little muscles that tie into the abs that really set a ripped midsection apart from simply just having six pack abs. Hold the cables with both hands on one side, and even though it's a small movement.... Just squeeze those muscles on the side and tightly crunch that little section.

Next up, we're going to try hanging leg raises again, except this time we're going to crunch slightly to the side to get those obliques and serratus muscles again.

Last thing - to really focus more on the lower abdominal muscles (although to see those abs you really need to focus better on your clean eating).... We're doing weighted V-ups, attaching a cable strap around the ankles.

0:53 - Hanging Leg Raises
2:49 - Isolated Leg Raises
4:36 - Cable Crunches
9:32 - Side Cable Crunches
13:43 - Oblique Hanging Leg Raises
15:35 - Weighted V-Ups
