Super Bowl XLVIII is only days away and the flood of FB messages/texts/emails from concerned clients have been coming in.

Not about the game.

But about the temptations they will face at Superbowl parties.

You know.

Chips, dip, pizza, hamburgers, beer, fried chicken, candy, wings, nachos, cookies, hard liquor, cupcakes, pigs in blankets, queso dip, etc.

So many of you have been crushing the workouts, consistently sticking to nutrition plans, and progressing towards your New Years Fitness Resolutions…

And I know you don’t want to take any steps backwards.

So…

In this post, I want to give you just a few strategies to help you tackle some of the Super Bowl Party Challenges that will help keep you on the right track and also give you an awesome workout that you can do anywhere before the big game.

First, let’s start with the Superbowl Party Strategies.

Be The Solution and Make Some Healthy Alternatives

When we go to Mesha’s parents house, her mom is usually cooking up some soul food. Fried chicken, corn bread, ribs, mashed potatoes & gravy, rice, and tons of snacks.
 
Great for the soul and tastebuds but pretty detrimental for a 6 pack.

So…

A strategy we use is bringing over some healthy alternatives for everyone to enjoy.

No, it doesn’t have to be boiled chicken breasts (you’ll probably be the only eating it) but it might be a fresh salad, healthy gluten free options of snacks, or even low calorie versions of the same types of food.

You don’t have to worry about healthy options at the party if you’re the one bringing it.
 
 

Train Before You Cheat 

This strategy is pretty simple.

If you know your going to be having a cheat meal, train hard before and offset some of those calories.

That’s exactly what the 12th Man Pre Super Bowl Workout is designed to help you do. Get moving so you can get eating.

Check it out below.

Know Your Limit 

Superbowl parties are usually filled with snacks, drinks, and finger foods.

It can get challenging to keep track of how much your eating with these types of foods, especially when your focused on the game and having a good time.

Be mindful of how much your eating to avoid consuming too many calories.

Remember, all those little snacks add up too become BIG calories.
