I have put together a “mega calorie-burn” Super Bowl workout a couple of different years in the past, and it’s been a big hit both times!
You see, according to Yahoo.com, Super Bowl Sunday marks the day that Americans chow the second-greatest amount of food – second only to Thanksgiving.
So instead of watch your friends and family eat all the foods you love, while you sit in the corner chewing on a stick of celery … you can do this Super Bowl Mega-Calorie Burning Workout, in the morning, and then feel okay about enjoying some of the foods you love on the big day!

sets of five total on each side.
2 – Do three rounds of the following circuit as fast as possible:

– 12 close push ups
3 – to FINISH – KB snatches – Do 50 reps as fast as possible, using any combination of reps on either side (form first! – only use weight you are comfortable with and decrease volume if you are not confident in being able to perform safely and effectively. Can substitute 100 one arm swings instead.)
3 – Run 5k – 3.2 miles – at a medium (6 mph) pace (approx 500 calories burned)
If you are not into running, you could also do about 35 minutes of medium-to-high intensity biking, swimming, rowing, etc.
4 – Finish with 15 minutes of stretching / core work / yoga poses / etc (approx 100 calories burned):
Carve out about 90 minutes tomorrow morning before the big game to do this workout, and you can feel a-okay about the extra kcals you consume later in the day 😉
May your favorite team win –
