Superbowl Pre-Game Workout

Superbowl Pre Game WorkoutStudies support the best time to refuel muscles is directly after a workout. They are screaming for food in order to restore muscle glycogen.

Try this 6-minute circuit before the big game and make sure the chicken wings and beers go into your muscles and not the beer gut.
 

The Man-Maker

 
The Superbowl pre-game workout is called the “Man-Maker” and the name says it all. Here’s how you perform the Man-Maker:

Holding 2 dumbbells squat down and touch them to the floor. Once crouched jump your feet back into a push-up position and perform a push-up. When you come to the top of your push-up perform a renegade row with each arm. Next jump your feet back in and stand back up while cleaning the dumbbells to your shoulders. Then perform a push-press.

Sounds complicated but it’s not.

Complete the Man-Maker for 2 full minutes without stopping. After your 2 minutes are up, rest 1 minute and repeat 2 more sets of the 2 minute Man-Maker for a total of 6 minutes of work.

Still confused?

Watch Drew perform the Man-Maker in the Superbowl 46 pre-game workout.

Cooking with Beer - Beer Chili Con Carne

Beer Chili Con CarneWith the Super Bowl this Sunday what better time to not only introduce the new series (Cooking with Beer) but also share my all-time favorite recipe- Beer Chili Con Carne.

This easy to make recipe is packed so full of flavor you won’t even realize it is one of the healthiest Chili recipes on the planet.

When you combine the fiber from the veges and legumes (black and kidney beans) with the mouth watering spice concoction… you get a heart healthy, beer belly reducing bowl of glorious-ness.

Watch below as I show you how it’s done:
 

Chili Con Carne and Beer

 


 

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 Medium Yellow Onions
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Carrots
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • 2 Red (Green, Yellow or Orange) Bell Peppers
  • Big Handful of Mushrooms
  • 1 Small Zucchini
  • 1 – 24 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 – 12 oz Can of Chick Peas (Garbanzo Beans)
  • 1 – 12 oz Can of Black Beans
  • 1 – 12 oz Can of Kidney Beans
  • 1 pound of Extra Lean Ground Carne/Beef (Turkey or Chicken)
  • 1 Can of your favorite Beer
  • 2 table spoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of Chili Powder
  • 2 table spoons of Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of Ground Cumin
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of Red Chili Flakes (more or less depending how spicy you like it)
  • Sea Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

 
How to put it all together:

Crack open the can of Beer and sip slowly making sure to save half of it for later.

Chop up all the veggies. Pour 2 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil into a large pot and turn to medium/high heat.

Toss in all the chopped veggies and add in the following spices: 2 heaping table spoons of Chili Powder, 1 heaping tea spoon of Ground Cumin (or Coriander), 1 heaping tea spoon of Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of Red Chili Flakes (more or less depending how spicy you like it) and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Stir every 30-45 seconds for about 8-10 minutes.

Add the entire can of Diced Tomatoes. Drain and Rinse the Chick Peas, Black and Kidney Beans and stir them into the pot.

Pour in the 1/2 Can of your favorite Beer. With your wooden spoon slowly stir in and break apart the Ground Carne (allowing it to cook in the chili).

Stir in the 2 tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar, and add another pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Reduce heat, cover and allow to simmer for about an hour or more, stirring occasionally.

Serve garnished with a scoop of plain Greek yogurt, some grated cheddar cheese and freshly chopped cilantro. Sooooo Good. Makes about 6 – 8 servings.

Enjoy.

Yours in health,

Sean
