It’s SUPER BOWL time!! This year we should have another great Super Bowl Event. The game between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons is setup to one of the best Super Bowls in recent history. Then you add in a Halftime show with Lady Gaga and probably a guest star or two. All of this will be extremely entertaining, but we all know the main reason that most people will tune in is for the commercials (I mean who doesn’t love those Budweiser Clydesdale commercials)! The Super Bowl will be watched by an estimated 120 Million viewers this year, which means it’s going to be one of the biggest days of the year for TV advertising. The average commercial will run a company roughly $5 Million for 30 seconds and it’s almost guaranteed that they will make that back two-fold with an effective commercial campaign.
In addition to a great football game, halftime performance and hilarious commercials, there will be a plethora of snacks and fried food consumed by viewers. I know I’ll be eating and drinking my fair share of calories during the game. If you read my earlier post about food being consumed on Super Bowl Sunday, you know the average american will consume roughly 6,000 calories….yikes! So in order to help combat those calories, I’ve put together an easy workout to do while watching the commercials. It’s a little something to keep us active and off the couch while we eat/drink our body weight in chicken wings, pizza, and beer.
Concept: Watch the commercials like normal. After watching the commercial and finding out what the product is, do the workout listed below that matches up with that companies category. Each workout listed will allow you to do the exercise while still paying attention to the next commercial or the game.
- Food/Drink – 10 Jumping Jacks
- Alcoholic Beverage – 10 Squats
- Automotive – 10 Push-ups
- Electronics/Household – 10 Sit-Ups
- Miscellaneous (gaming, movies, entertainment, etc.) – 10 Lunges
Feel free to tweak or change some of the categories or workouts to your desire. Hope you enjoy!
