This year will be the first time Adam and I have hosted a Superbowl party since 2008!
I flipped through old pics last night and was so SHOCKED at how young everyone looks at our last party!
I guess 2008 really was that long ago!
We were still in college!
I’ll never forget the 2008 party because we invited too many people over and didn’t have enough space for everyone to have a seat so I sat on the floor!
While the Red Solo Cup and junky snacks were featured at our old SB parties, this year we’ll try to go a bit healthier (but not too healthy since it is a Superbowl party after all)!
One fun Superbowl party related thing I’ve come across on a couple of sites are lists of Superbowl Fitness Challenges! Here are a few that I thought I would share with you!
Touchdown Pushups – Every time your team scores a touchdown, do a pushup for each point they earn (so 7 pushups for 7 points). Every time the opposing team scores a touchdown, do DOUBLE that mount (14 pushups)!
Penalty Crunches – When your team gets a penalty flag thrown at them, you have to do crunches. Do one crunch for every yard penalized and multiplied by five. For example, if there is a five-yard penalty then you do 25 crunches (5 x 5).
Burpee Coach Challenge – If the coach of your team wins a red flag challenge you will celebrate by doing as many burpees as you can in one minute!
Start of Each Quarter – Do five pushups.
First Touchdown of the Quarter (for each team) – Do 10 alternating lunges.
Whenever a Time Out is Called – Do 20 mountain climbers.
For Every Commercial Break – Do 10 jumping jacks.
Every Time There is a Touchdown – Do 7 burpees.
During the Halftime Show – Do a 1 minute wall sit.
For Every Touchdown – Complete 20 pushups.
For Every Field Goal – Complete 20 squats.
For Every Extra Point – Complete 5 pushups.
For Every Safety – Complete 50 jumping jacks.
For Every First Down – Complete 10 ab classic crunches.
If you scroll down in the HuffPo article you’ll see a bunch of other options from Interception Arm Circles to a Time Out Knee Highs!
Some of these are a little redundant, so you might want to just pick and choose your favorites from the master list and put together your own Superbowl fitness challenge. Once I get into the game I’m not sure how often I’ll remember to do any of the challenges, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
Aaaaaand just because I haven’t posted this pic in a while, here’s Cecil from 2008 right around the time we hosted our last Superbowl party :).
He would like you to know that he was merely tolerating the shirt. He says for me to use the #FirstWorldCatProblem hashtag.
Are you up for doing any of the Superbowl Fitness Challenges? Do you think your friends would call you crazy for trying to make them participate?!
