It’s that time of year again: football season. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up watching your fair share of games this season. The good news is that the players don’t have to be the only ones putting in work. With the right game plan, you can get your sweat on, too. Check out the Game Day Workout below for some inspiration on how to stay active play after play.

Air Squats:

For each completed pass, hop up and get your squat on. Stand up with your feet about hip-width apart, keeping your chest up and shoulders back. Push your hips back, transfer your weight onto your heels, and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold for a moment and then push through your heels to return to standing. Repeat for a total of ten reps.

Burpees:

A touchdown for them = six burpees for you. Squat down with both hands on the floor in front of you. Quickly kick your legs back so that you are in push-up position. Fire your legs back into the original squat position then jump straight up, reaching straight above your head to complete one burpee.

Elbow Plank:

Instead of rushing to the snack table during each timeout, plank it out. Get into full plank position, then bend at the elbows and get down on your forearms. Make sure your elbows are directly beneath your shoulders and keep your body in a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold until the game starts back up again.

Push-ups:

For each extra point or field goal, complete ten push-ups. Start by lying on the floor, placing your hands slightly wider than chest-width apart. Push yourself up until your body forms a straight line from head to feet. Lower yourself down until your chest almost touches the floor then press yourself back up to the starting position.

Core Circuit:

During commercial breaks, complete each of the following moves for twenty reps each.

  1. Modified V-Ups: Lie down on your back with your legs straight and your palms down beside your hips. Quickly lift your torso into an upright position as you pull your knees to your chest. Lower your body back to the starting position to complete one rep.
  2. Seated Twists: Sit on the floor with your hips and knees bent at 90 degrees. Hold your arms out in front of you and keep your back straight. Twist your torso as far as you can to the left, and then reverse the motion to the right for one rep.
  3. Leg Lifts: Lie down on your back with your feet hovering above the ground. Place your hands under your bottom with your palms facing down. Keep your legs straight as you slowly raise them up. Hold at the top for a few seconds and then lower your legs to the starting position to complete one rep.
  4. Slow Climbers: Begin in a full plank. While bracing your core, pick up your right foot and slowly pull your right knee toward your chest. Hold for a few seconds, then return to the starting position. Repeat with the left knee to complete one rep.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
