Superbowl Sunday! Work it out like a football player

Superbowl is finally here!! Aaaand, second to Thanksgiving, it’s the most popular eating day in our country. What does that mean? You better be getting a run in before settling down with a plate of wings and an ice cold beer!

Today, if you don’t feel like getting in a long run, consider getting your workout on…. like a football player!

For the players to run in a touchdown, they have to do some serious conditioning. Building your leg muscles is important to endure a long run.

Some workouts to consider:

  • Grapevine
  • Jump squats
  • Quick sprints
  • Jumping jacks
  • High knees

The trick here is to do these moves in quick bursts, about 30 seconds a piece, giving it everything you have throughout each move. Do them back to back, with 30 seconds of rest between finishing the full routine and starting another.

Before you decide to take the day off all together, consider what it will take to burn off your football eats:

I hope everyone has a great Superbowl Sunday!

Get your run or workout in before the game and snack easy afterwards!
