The Super Bowl isn’t only about watching your favorite team win your favorite game. It’s about getting the gang together to drink beer, eat junk, make manly grunt noises at each other and yell at the TV screen! ARR! ARR! ARR! Am I right, or am I right?! Sure, it’s a day meant for fun, but that’s no reason to forego your new year’s resolution so early in the game and mess up your diet and exercise routine. If you play your cards right you won’t wake up with that yucky bloated feeling the next morning… Y’all know what I’m talking about!

Here is a Super Bowl Sunday Commercial Workout by Jennipher Walters-DietsinReview.com Jennipher says: “That’s right, you can get a pretty good workout by doing just a few simple moves during the three-minute commercials of the big game. This way, you don’t miss any big plays of the game, yet you aren’t sitting on the couch for four straight hours. You’ll alternate upper-body, lower-body, core and cardio moves during each “commercial break.” Once you go through the entire list — if you have time — do it again to double the calorie burn! All of these moves require no equipment, so there are no excuses not to get moving like your favorite players are!”
Your 24-Minute Football Commercial Workout
Commercial Break No. 1: Do as many push-ups as you can — either modified on your knees or up on your toes.
Commercial Break No. 2: Perform alternating forward lunges, being careful not to allow your knee to go beyond a 90-degree angle.
Commercial Break No. 3: Hands behind your head, bicycle crunch it out. Alternate bringing your left and right knees in as you twist and bring your elbow to the opposite knee. Work those obliques!
Commercial Break No. 4: Get your football feet on by doing a fast shuffle in place like the players do in practice!
Commercial Break No. 5: Grab an empty chair and perform tricep dips with your hands on the seat of the chair and your feet on the floor. Begin sitting on the chair, with the hands next to your legs, fingertips near the edge of the chair. Lift up onto the hands and bring the hips forward off the chair. Bend the elbows (no lower than 90 degrees) and lower the hips down. Keep the shoulders down. Push back up without locking the elbows and repeat.
Commercial Break No. 6: Squat it out, being sure to keep your weight in your heels and going at a pace of 3 seconds down and 3 seconds back up.
Commercial Break No. 7: Get back into push-up position with your hands slightly closer together to perform a plank. For extra burn, try lifting each of your legs up for a full commercial.
Commercial Break No. 8: Jog in place, bringing your knees as high up in front of you as you can. Pretend that you’re running through tires! The best part about this workout is that all of these exercises still allow you to keep your eye on the commercials. Heck ya! For me, that’s the best part!
Grab some pals and make this your new football tradition, or better yet turn it into a competition!
