No time to workout on Super Bowl Sunday or needing a little football inspired action? Have no fear! Mama Sara is here with a Super Bowl Workout. I know it sounds cheesy but I promise if you push yourself, it will kick some serious Super Bowl booty!
Exercises are listed below with a quick video where I demo (pregnant and all) the exercises. You have 2 options in terms of the workout. 1) Perform it as a legit workout using the sets and reps I recommend. 2) Make it a game in itself where you perform the exercises as you watch the game. As someone who is not that into the game (unless a Chicago team is playing) this helps keep me a little more involved. It’s kind of like playing a drinking game . . . the healthy way!
Would love to hear your comments in the section below as to which way you used the workout and what your favorite exercises are.
Watch this video to learn how to do the exercises (It’s also at the bottom of this post). Sets & reps, as well as “Game” instructions, are below. If you’re just doing the workout alone (not during the game) run the program 3 times through, which should take under 30 minutes. You will get a complete body workout.
