ACCESS HEALTH (WHISPER)
THE SPORT OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS AND BOXING REQUIRE TAKING
PUNISHMENT TO THE BODY AND NOBODY IS MORE QUALIFIED TO TALK
ABOUT THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL ASPECTS OF THE SPORT THEN OUR
GUEST, TONY EL CUCUY FERGUSON, HE’S THE AMERICAN MIXED MARTIAL
ARTIST WHO COMPETES IN THE LIGHT WEIGHT DIVISION OF THE UFC OR
ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP. ALSO, DANEEN SOLOMON IS HERE,
SHE’S THE VICE PRESIDENT OF DFX SPORTS AND FITNESS. TONY, YOUR
CAREER YOU WON THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER IN 2011.
CORRECT. SINCE THEN YOU ARE 17 AND 3.
17 AND 3. YOU’RE LAST FIGHT, HARD BATTLE
SPLIT DECISION, YOU’R HAVING AN UNBELIEVABLE RIDE HUH?
YEA, RIGHT NOW I’M ON A 3 FIGHT WIN STREAK AND JUST COMING OFF
OF THAT VICTORY IN SACRAMENTO, ENEMY’S TERRITORY IT WAS
AMAZING, FELT GREAT. (LAUGHTER)
I’M TRYING TO THINK OF A SPORT WHERE YOU TRAIN HARDER THEN IN
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS. I CAN’T THINK OF ONE. YOU GUYS TRAIN
HARDER THEN ANYBODY? I BELIEVE WE TRAIN HARDER THEN
ANYBODY. I PLAYED FOOTBALL, BASEBALL, WRESTLING MY WHOLE
ENTIRE LIFE, BUT MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IS IT’S THE TOUGHEST.
AND BECAUSE UNFORTUNATE REALITY OF YOUR JOB IS THE INJURIES.
UMM I DID BREAK MY ULNA BONE IN A SERIES OF KICK IN ONE MY PAST
FIGHTS AND IT TOOK AROUND LIKE TWO YEARS, THREE SURGERIES AND
TWO BONE GRAFTS AND TWO STEEL PLATES, BUT WE HAVE REALLY GOOD
SUPPORT AND I’M HERE ON MY MAT TODAY BECAUSE OF THAT SUPPORT.
WHICH IS WHERE YOU COME IN, DENINE.
ABSOLUTELY. WE HAVE GOT SOME VERY
INTERESTING STUFF HERE. WE DO. THIS IS ACTUALLY CALLED A
POWER BALL. IT’S A GYRO WRIST EXERCISER SO IT WEIGHS LESS THEN
ONE POUND SO YOU CAN PICK IT UP, IT’S REALLY LIGHT WEIGHT. BUT
THE THING IS, WHEN YOU GET IT GOING IT’S GOING TO GO UP TO
ABOUT 45 POUNDS OF TORQUE FORCE IN YOUR HAND.
SO IT’S CURRENTLY ONE POUND BUT WHEN YOU GET DONE WITH IT, IT’S
GOING TO BE POTENTIALLY UP TO 45 POUNDS.
THAT’S RIGHT. STICK IT ON THE DOCKING STATION, PRESS IT DOWN
UNTIL IT LIGHTS UP. THEN WHEN I HAND IT TO YOU YOUR BASICALLY
GOING TO ROTATE YOUR WRIST IN A CIRCULAR MOTION. OK AND WHAT
THIS IS GOING TO DO, YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL IN LESS THEN 30
SECONDS. NOW ROTATE THAT WRIST, THE FASTER YOU GO, THE MORE
RESISTANCE YOUR GOING TO FEEL. I FEEL IT ALREADY.
THAT’S RIGHT. IT’S BEEN THREE SECONDS.
IT’S BEEN THREE SECONDS AND YOU ALREADY FEEL IT. THAT’S THE
WHOLE POINT AND UNDER THREE MINUTES IT’S GOING TO INCREASE
YOUR BLOOD FLOW TO YOUR HANDS, WHICH HELPS WICH IS EXTREMELY
IMPORTANT IN TO AIDING REHABILITATION OF CARPEL TUNNEL,
TENNIS ELBOX, IT DOES EVERYTHING FROM YOUR TISSUES AND LIGAMENTS
TO YOUR FINGERS, YOUR WRIST, YOUR FOREARMS, TRICEPS, BICEPS,
YOUR GRIP. WHEN YOU HAVE A BROKEN ARM, YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE
TO REHABILITATE ALL THOSE TISSUES AND LIGAMENTS BACK TO
HOW THEY NORMALLY WERE. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS IS IT
REALLY FIRES OFF ALL THIS AREA. THERE YOU GO.
WITH POWER BALL. PERFECT FOR IT. SO NOW, TONY
YOUR GOING TO SHOW US THE AMPED UP VERSION OF THIS.
YES, WE HAVE THE AMPED UP VERSION OF THIS. THIS DEVELOPS
UP TO ABOUT 220 POUNDS OF TORQUE.
TWO HUNDRED, WOW! AND LIKE DENINE HAD SAID, THESE
ARE UP TO ABOUT 45 POUNDS TO TORQUE, BUT WHEN YOU NEED
SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT MORE POWERFUL, THE CORE TRAINER IS
YOUR TOOL. LET ME START IT FOR YOU.
YEA, SHOW US WHAT’S GOING ON HERE.
COUPLE QUICK TUGS. RIGHT.
LET ME STAND UP FOR YOU. AND SAME AS THE POWER BALLS,
WHEN YOU GET THIS MORE INTENSE THE LIGHT BECOMES MORE INTENSE.
SO I’M GOING TO HAND IT OVER TO YOU, BUT I DON’T WANT YOU TO FLY
OFF WITH IT. YEA, I’M GOING TO TRY NOT FALL
OVER HERE. HERE YOU GO BRO.
WOW. YOU’RE GOING TO DO IT JUST LIKE
YOUR CYCLING A BIKE. JUST LIKE YOUR CYCLING YOUR BIKE WITH YOUR
UPPER BODY. WHAT IT BASICALLY IS IS UPPER
BODY CARDIO. YES.
WHICH IN AND OF ITSELF IS A VERY RARE THING TO BE ABLE TO
ACHIEVE. IT IS.
BUT TO BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE LIKE AN UPPER BODY CARDIO DRIVEN
EXERCISE, ESPECIALLY WITH SOMETHING THIS SIZE.
YOU KNOW IT’S FOR ANYBODY, IT’S FOR A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE LIKE
TONY. WORLD CLASS GUY.
A WEEKEND WARRIOR. IT CAN ALL BE DONE WITH ANY OF THESE.
WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING IN.
THANK YOU, APPRECIATE IT. REALLY APPRECIATE IT GUYS.
