For those 49ers fans nervous about Super Bowl 58, they might want to take a page out of Steve Wilks' pregame-warmup book.

One of the nice things about the three Super Bowls between Super Bowl 54 and 58 is the fact San Francisco 49ers fans didn't have to stress over seeing their team lose on the biggest of stages.

Bookending that three-year stretch, though, the nerves have to be through the roof for the Faithful.

That's not going to be any different in the waning hours counting down to Super Bowl 58 against the defending-champion Kansas City Chiefs at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fans of both teams have to be nervous beyond belief, especially for Niners fans who haven't seen their team win the final game of the season since way back in 1995.

So, how can San Francisco's diehard fans stay calm counting down to the game?

Steve Wilks has very calming pre-Super Bowl workout routine, 49ers fans can follow

During the pregame shows leading up to the game, CBS Sports caught defensive coordinator Steve Wilks warming up on the sideline.

His warmup tool of choice? A workout rubber band:

Calming. Relaxing. Take a deep breath and go repeat that kind of workout.

Now, do so again at any point when you're feeling nervous. It'll probably be great for your frayed nerves that have to be almost entirely out of control at this point.

OK, so you might not need a rubber band (or even a workout routine) to calm yourself ahead of Super Bowl 58. But it certainly can't hurt whatsoever, especially if you're feeling the nerves.

As for the game itself, Wilks and the 49ers will square off against Kansas City at 6:30 p.m. ET from Allegiant Stadium.
