She’s back again.  Johnny’s sister (the blond with the accent) comes to the rescue to keep the walk-way safe on Valentine’s Day weekend.

The tradition continues! Enjoy and hopefully there’s not too much snow left in store for us this Spring!

Snow and cold came pretty early this year! Make sure you use your vigor and strength to get that snow shovelled.  Get creative…if the back lane is all crusty and tough….be crusty and tough back just like Sarah (Johnny’s sister) who comes by every year to help shovel the snow.

Enjoy!

This trend was HOT for a few weeks and Fukumoto Fitness go in on the action.

Participation from many different training groups came together on Saturday morning between Warrior Fit training sessions…and it was fantastic! Can you spot anyone you know? The star of the show in the middle was a gentleman from the 530pm MWF group…any guesses? There are also 4 FF staff in the mix.

We got a lot of snow this weekend! Make sure you get to it while it is still manageable!

Use your new level of fitness to be vigorous and get your family and household involved!

Use both sides and get down in your athletic position to lift with your hips and use your whole body!

Now…a message from Sarah (Johnny’s sister) who visited us 2 years ago.

For those of you wondering where she got her Infinity Scarf, she doesn’t know as it was a Christmas gift so your guess is as good as hers!

Congratulations on completing your Undulation program for Fukumoto Fitness Phase 4 2012! Below is the new hot single just released by the MC Fuku-Metabolic feat. Jen-Jen (possibly her last video appearance ever due to rumours of retirement) Lyrics below!

Clap your hands everybody, if you got what it takes

We change it up at Fukumoto Fitness.  We like to undulate!

Day 1

If you don’t know me by now I doubt you’ll ever know me.

I never pull a hammy.  I love the foam rolling.

But I’m not the only one keepin’ it real. When I look round the warehouse, ya’ll be rolling too!

Check the workout today, crushing 30/30s! strength is the focus, getting down and dirty

I love to see the ladies increasing the resistance. They aint getting bulky, they just goin’ the distance

Iso explosive pushups on toes or kneeling.  Hold for 4 seconds then erupt to the ceiling!

Single leg strength with the rear foot elevation.  Add a band to Bulgarian booty preparation

 

We never forget the posterior chain.  With the body rocking TRX “W” raise!

Which class was the hardest? We took a vote! Mondays on the ballot, check those renegade rows!

Less repetitions but full attendance. Results are magnificent with time under tension!

Get to bed early every Sunday night. So you can stand a chance in the Monday fight!

Day 2 

Now the next class was no walk in the park. But at least the 6am wasn’t stuck in the dark

5 stations, 4 rounds, 3 planes of motion, 2 guns for arms, 1 team with focus!

Wednesdays we all became heros.  Number of excuses : ZERO!

50 seconds work, 10 seconds rest.  No time for water, baby, just time for breath!

The running lunge was real hard to master. Coordination at times close to disaster

Are you sweating or crying, need a hug? Yes please! Right after my overhead shrug.

Pushups with a twist from Cirque du Soleil. And performing side plank in a whole different way

Endurance improved and came to fruition.  You felt fantastic with proper nutrition!

Day 3

Now we come to the last day of the week. We’re all hitting our stride, we’re all hitting our peak.

Today is all about short and sweet. 20 crazy seconds, can you feel the heat?

Single leg squats warm up the hinyDig in those heels, now don’t get whiny.

Med ball chops come across the hip. Hold on tight now don’t lose that grip

Battle with them ropes doing 4 full sets. Screaming out loud like its for the Winnipeg Jets

Fridays always seem to go real fast. Wake up on the weekend, it kicked yo ass!

Ask yourself “Did we change it up?” We did some undulation now give it up!

What’s coming next, we’ll never know but we’re gonna bring it every day that’s fo sho!

Rest!

Verse 4 (Nutrition)

Our nutrition challenge went 4 weeks. Trying to have days that were sugar free

Cutting out those drinks that make us fat. That means alcohol! Man what up with dat?  

Protein, produce, H20.  I’m still hungry.  Eat a vegetabo!

This challenge is over but don’t forget. This is a way of life, it ain’t over yet

We welcomed a bunch of new people this phase. Here is the short list given to you name by name: Deb, Thomas, Rui, Sam and Melissa, Henry, Geoff, Lorraine, and Felicia

Get on with recovery, all about quality. A narrow-mind thinks its just about calories

Dial in your meals and set new goals. Getting’ better every day, that’s how we roll!

Thanks for your efforts this month people!

Share this and like this! Keep rocking!

 

 

 

Here is the new hot single coming straight outta Fukumoto Fitness! “Tabata Revolution” (Doc Tabata aka J Fukes feat. Jen-Jen on Keys).  Full lyrics below!

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/23129734[/vimeo]

T-A-B-A-T-A  (you know what it is) (It’s a REVOLUTION) x2

Verse 1

April 4 you show up with problems. We here for you man, we help you solve em!

What do we do? Offer solutions. My secret weapon: Tabata Revolution

10/20s for power on Mondays. Double finishers ensured they be fun days

For strength we had 15/15s. Work to rest ratio, you know what I mean?

Stepped up BIG TIME in the midweek. My warriors rocked 8 rounds of burpees

Workout 3 took place on Friday. Prepping for the weekend, its “Do or Die” Day

20 seconds hard and 10 seconds rest, you’re in fitness school, you aced that test!

Show up, Work hard, high fives and cheers! Grunts and Groans, music to my ears!

HOOK

Verse 2

Undulating workouts had quite a kick. Side plank leg swings, was that a trick?

Pushups and Jumps of the vertical kind. One legged hops right over the line!

Less fat and flab, more muscle defined. If you have concerns, we can modify

Straighten up nice put your hands in the air. Member of the month: Nadine St. Hilaire!

Missed you all when I went to Kentucky. What a great group, how’d I get so lucky?

You pumped it up on Easter Weekend. Gettin’ down like a dog with a fire hydrant.

Best results came with a healthy diet. That’s no secret, no need to keep it quiet.

12 great days down, ya want some more? Doc Tabata had it right back in ‘94!

HOOK

Verse 3

Sooner than later come be fit with us. Extreme Body Makeover, Move that BUS!

Time to get ready for Thunder & Lightning. Bring the positivity cuz it’s the right thing

Every day you give your all is victory, People hating on you gotta deal with me!

Time to do my pushups so I gotta go, Fukumoto Fitness has got the flow!

So You Think You CAN’T Dance?

A great form of exercise is dance and although a lot of people are PETRIFIED of it, it can be as vigorous as you want it to be.  You could take a hip hop class alone, swing with a partner, or could dance in your home when no one’s watching! Any way to keep you moving is great.  You can burn calories and its a lot of fun if you can own it.  I dare you to dance a little more this week, just 1 song in your house? Come on, go for it!

This post is dedicated to Iris in 430pm Bronx as she definitely OWNS it and loves to dance.  I hope you like this video, Iris! I want to dance with you!

The weather is now mild (for now).  Grab a friend, family member, or stranger and become friends! Add a walk at lunchtime or after dinner to supplement your more vigorous exercise.  Remember walking is awesome but it does not replace the other types of exercise you need to get the highest health benefits possible! Try some interval walking too! Draw some attendtion with 20 seconds at a speedier pace and then bring it back down to a brisk walk.  Remember: Swing those arms!

That’s what I want to see…only with clothes on and with some friends!

Hey Ya’ll!

I know I know, you want to ‘relax’ when you go on a vacation whether its somewhere for the weekend, to a hot destination, or just at home for some time off.  My charge to you is that you can still relax AND not at least maintain your fitness level, if not improve it.  You should in theory, have a bit more time and so take advantage so you don’t feel gross when your time is over and you’re further back in your goals!

Some of you are thinking (I wish I had a vacation, Johnny, you jerk!) but this can apply to any time where you are away from your normal routine.

To put my money where my mouth is, I commit to doing 2 workouts a day when I go away this weekend (kind of a delayed honeymoon) with my wife! Sure there will be lots of food and a few drinks but also time for activities! You can bet I’m going to be interval training like a mad man.


Sorry about the time delay on the voice…but we’re far away!

Johnny and Jen!
