Football season doesn’t have to ruin all the hard work you put in at the gym.
Whether you’re watching football, basketball, a Netflix marathon, or even your kids soccer practices/games… you don’t have to sacrifice progress or those gym gainz.
It may not be the best season to try a Fat Loss Phase. In fact, fall/winter is a great season to work on building your maintenance/small surplus to add some muscle to better support your metabolism.
Check out my Top 5 Tips for not just surviving, but thriving this season and setting yourself up for PR’s to come!!
1- Get your workout/steps in first thing in the morning! That way, regardless of any OT or over-partying, you know you got some movement in.
2- Have a higher Protein breakfast. Aim for >35g. This will increase satiety, and decrease your chances of over-eating later. Try to include Protein when you’re snacking. Refer to Abby‘s Football Snacks.
3- Stay hydrated with water or low-calories drinks if you plan to indulge in more food/alcohol.
4- Pre-Track your Meals or create a rough meal “plan” for the day so that you don’t skip meals OR accidentally eat in a giant surplus!
5- And if the Buffalo Bills (or your team) make it to the Super Bowl…don’t track your foods!
