Big Game Workout

Why not switch things up today and squeeze in a workout during the Super Bowl! I am all about giving your lifestyle a healthy makeover whenever and wherever you can! NYHRC shared the perfect Big Game Workout to do with friends. It's worth a try, you will feel less guilty and sluggish when the game is over!


Repeat each exercise 10 times for 15 minutes

Line Shuffles (Lateral Shuffles)

  • Take an athletic stance and keep your core tight.
  • Roll slightly onto the balls of your feet.
  • Laterally shuffle across the floor twice, dropping your hips and touching your outside foot with your inside arm.
  • Repeat in opposite direction, moving fast and getting as low as you possibly can.
  • To modify, instead of touching your foot, touch the outside of your knee.

Red Zone Sprints (A Skips)

  • Start by getting hyped (bounce up and down on the balls of your feet).
  • Run in place, bringing your knees into your chest. Make sure you’re skipping while running.

Touchdowns (Single Arm Planks)

  • Start in a standing position.
  • Take one hand and place it on the floor.
  • Kick out your legs so that you’re in single arm plank position.
  • Extend the arm that’s not on the floor and pull it back in towards body.
  • Jump back up to standing position.
  • Repeat, alternating arms.
  • To modify, step back one leg at a time instead of kicking both legs back simultaneously.
