Wake Up, Work Out

If you’re not much of a gym person (like me), you probably find it difficult to make time for exercise – especially in the dead of winter. I’ve found that the best way to get myself moving in the morning is with a light, indoor workout routine. A quick 15 minutes of exercise in the comfort of your dorm room can make a world of difference physically AND be a positive start to each day. Try any combination of the following – just make sure your workout lasts 15 minutes or longer (without stopping!):

  1. Basic Crunches
  2. Half Squats
  3. Push-ups
  4. Planks
  5. Double Leg Side Lifts
  6. Single Leg Chins
  7. Bent Leg Dip (On Bench)
  8. Kick Backs Extended
  9. Side Plank On Elbow
  10. Jump Over Step

*Don’t forget to stretch thoroughly before and after your workout!*

Remember, if you’re not sweating, you’re not pushing yourself hard enough! However, be careful not to overdo it. Gradually increase the number of reps and the length of workout over time to avoid injury and to see the best results.
