According to Yahoo.com, Super Bowl Sunday marks the day that Americans chow the second-greatest amount of food – second only to Thanksgiving.
You could stay strong, and watch your friends and family eat all the foods you love, while you sit in the corner chewing on a stick of celery …
OR … you could do the UPDATED and ALL NEW version of my Super Bowl Mega-Calorie Burning Workout … and feel okay about enjoying some of the foods you love on the big day!!
*Side note – No Gym? No Excuse! was published not long after the end of my pro football career … the resistance training portion of today’s workout is from the program … if you pick up a copy and read the book, I think you’ll see the influence of the training I did as an athlete.
