Tips and Tricks to a healthier SuperBowl!
With Superbowl approaching this weekend, everyone will be scarfing down tons of beers and snacks during game time! Celebrity Fitness Expert,Craig Ramsay wants to provide your readers with some post-Superbowl exercises that will burn off all those indulgences!
You couch is not just your stadium seating for the game it’s also your gym!
3 LITTLE exercises while watching the BIG game.
Exercise #1 Couch Surfing
1.  Stand roughly a foot in front of the couch standing shoulder width apart.  Lower your body with a slight squat where your booty is roughly 6-8 inches off the coach.
2.  While staying in that squat position, lift up your left foot and step out to the left. Draw your right leg in towards the left leg and gently “Touch Down” your booty onto the couch for a “Time Out” of 2 seconds. Squat back up into your bend squat position.
3.  Repeat towards the right.
Tip: Muscle fatigue WILL occur during this exercise, stand up tall, shake out your legs, and “Game On” get back to it.
Exercise #2 Couch Abs
1. Lay on the floor in front of your coach placing your hands under the coach.  Have the kids, family or friends sit on the coach to weight it down.
2.  Palms up use the coach as leverage as you extend your legs out 90 degrees.
3.  Draw the knees in towards the elbows, squeezing your abs tight.
Tip: flex your feet and keep your elbows pointing up in the air to protect your shoulder rotator cuff.
Breath in on the contraction while bringing the knees in towards the elbows and breath out when the legs go out 90 degrees.
Exercise #3 Couch pushups
1. Start in a plank position with your hands securely on the seat of the coach.
2.  lower your upper body with a pushup, bringing your chest closer to the coach.
3.  Press up back into a plank position, making sure you do not lock your elbows at the top range of movement.
Tip: make sure your chest is over your hands to protect your rotator cuff.
If pushups are not your strength… yet, then modify this exercise by placing your knees gently on the floor. place a pillow under the knees for added comfort.
